Forest 8 x 6 ft Overlap Dip Treated Pent Shed

EAN: 5013053178539

(3.8) Based on 2 Reviews


A good looking 8ft wide by 6ft deep Overlap Pent Shed that, like other Forest garden buildings, combines practicality with an attractive appearance.

The pent roof is designed to provide generous headroom for anyone in the shed or for bulky items that are stored inside. It is made from sheet material and is covered by black sand felt, so any rain easily drains away. This leaves an interior, that has tough timber flooring, completely dry.

Square cut overlap FSC timber not only looks good but also helps rain run off the structure. It is dip treated and guaranteed against rot for 10 years if the shed is isolated from the ground and regularly retreated with preservative.

Security is a major consideration, particularly as some of the tools and equipment stored inside will be valuable. Therefore it is reassuring to know that the door has hidden hinges and is reinforced with double 'Z' framing. There is also a hasp & staple latch.

The two windows are fitted with unbreakable PET with excellent light transmission, they fill the interior with light and will not yellow or become brittle with age. Security screws are used to fit them.

Vehicles We Use
Items will be delivered on larger lorries which can get to most places it's typically, a 7.5-ton lorry which is about the size of a dustbin lorry, this will depend on the item that is being delivered and should you have any concerns with restricted access to your property we ask you to contact us prior to placing an order.

Unloading Of Your Delivery
Due to the nature of this product, delivery will be made to the front of the property to the nearest location. Our drivers will not carry these items inside your home or back garden. When the item is delivered on a pallet, the pallet and packaging are non-returnable and the goods can only be manoeuvred on a flat and level surface (i.e. not a gravel driveway) by a pallet truck. On some occasions, the driver will split the package to assist with the manoeuvring of the item. Once you are happy, we will ask you to check the condition of the goods and sign for the delivery. Assistance with unloading may be required.

Good shed, bit rough overall

Easy to assemble, but rough sawn so lots of splinters, needs good sanding if children use. Floor very bouncy and will probably reinforce at a later date. Door frame timbers very distorted, had to remove and plane to allow door to close properly. But overall reasonable shed for money spent.
