Forest 7ft x 5ft Overlap Shed

Product Code: OPA75DDHD EAN: 5013053150641

(4.2) Based on 5 Reviews


A single door is perfectly adequate for many sheds but double doors make entry so much easier especially when you have large items. That's why this Overlap 7ft x 5ft Shed from Forest has become a popular choice over the years.

There's a good chance that the contents will also be valuable, so it's good to know that security is taken seriously. Door hinges are hidden, there's a hasp & staple latch and double 'Z' bracing for strength.

The polycarbonate glazing is unbreakable and will not suffer yellowing or brittleness as it ages. With excellent light transmission and good headroom, moving about inside the shed is easy. 

Flooring is included as standard, it is robust pressure treated board, while overhead the roof is constructed from sheet material and then covered with black sand felt to ensure that it is weatherproof.

Not only supremely practical, the shed has an attractive appearance. This is due to the mixed softwood overlap cladding that has also been pressure treated. Even though treatment with preservative is not required, the FSC timber is guaranteed against rot and decay for fifteen years.

Overlap 7x5 Shed Features:

  • Square cut overlap mixed softwood timber board construction which allows flexibility and movement 
  • Robust and stable pressure treated boarded floor
  • Unbreakable polycarbonate glazing, which will not become yellow or brittle over time, fixed with security screws
  • Safe and secure hidden door hinges with a plate hasp and staple latch
  • Sturdy door braced with double "Z" framing for added strength and security
  • The door can be hinged on the left or right side
  • Complete with two doors and one window
  • Self-assembly is made easy with the instructions that are included
  • Weatherproof black sand felted roof constructed from durable sheet material
  • Attractive smooth planed finial and barge board
  • Manufactured from FSC certified timber from sustainable sources
  • Pressure treated timber, guaranteed against rot and fungal decay for 15 years
  • No need to retreat; cost-effective and time-saving

Nice looking shed - not the best fit

Nice looking shed now it's up. Took us 6 hours to build. Instructions were basic and many parts didn't fit properly, so had to dismantle and try again. Now it is up, it looks lovely though. The delivery man said he was not legally allowed in our house, so did not help us at all, which was a shame.

You get what you pay for as already stated..but for the price is ok

You get what you pay for as already stated. warped wood, poor quality nails and screws and very basic instructions. I had to dismantle the door and re nail the wood slats just to make align the centre. It's never going to win the best shed in the world...but for the price is ok... if you want better, pay more and dont buy this shed!

What more do you want?

This shed probably won't win many prizes but what you see is what you get, a timber shed that's large enough for my bike and a lot of clutter that 'might come in handy some day'. everything fits together perfectly well if you follow the instructions and the double doors are a bonus for this size of shed.

Forest Apex Shed 7x5

I'm very pleased with my new shed. A competent DIY friend helped me with the assembly, took around 4-5 hours. All the relevant panels, parts, screws, latches etc were present. The shed looks great and would definitely recommend.
