Write the first review


Packed with useful practical features, this 8ft wide by 6ft deep shed has a traditional apex roof but with a twist in its design as the door is located on the longer side. This innovation isn't surprising as the shed is from Forest, the well known British company famous for their garden buildings.

Overlap timber, a mixture of softwood from sustainable sources that has been dip treated, is used for cladding. This FSC wood is guaranteed for ten years if, as it should be, the shed is isolated from the ground and is periodically treated with preservative. 

Weatherproof, the shed has an attractive square cut appearance that effectively repels rain. The sheet material roof is protected by black sand felt, so the interior and all contents are kept perfectly dry. Flooring is installed as standard, made from highly durable timber material.

Once inside you'll notice that the two windows, that are fitted with security screws, let in lots of light. The glazing is unbreakable polycarbonate, that doesn't discolour or become brittle. Other security measures include hidden hinges on the sturdy door that is reinforced by Z framing and a hasp & staple lock. 

If you require a dry and secure spacious storage space for many different items, both garden and household, this would appear to be the ideal choice.

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.
