When you think of a practical shed with enough room for all the gardening paraphernalia you may have, then this is the size and type that will probably come to mind.

With a traditional apex roof covered with black sand felt over sheet material, there's an attractive smooth planed finial and barge boards as finishing touches.

The cladding is pressure treated mixed softwood from a sustainable source. Don't worry about rot and decay, the wood is guaranteed for fifteen years even without preservative.

For convenience, the single door can be hung from either side and for security it is reinforced with a double 'Z' frame, is fitted with a hasp & staple latch and has hidden hinges. The door can be hung from wither side and once inside you'll notice that the flooring is made up of strong pressure treated board.

The advantage of having windows is that the interior will be light and easy to move around in. However, any glazing will be unbreakable polycarbonate fitted with security screws, this material resists yellowing and won't become brittle.

  • Made with traditional straight cut overlap timber boards

8' x 6' Overlap Apex Shed - it is just that.

Delivery was very good. Arrived on the agreed day, during the allotted time scale and the driver telephoned 20 minutes prior to him arriving. Unfortunately I had to chase the company with regards getting the time of delivery by text (I was told this should be sent the day before delivery). The shed is of reasonable quality and has been assembled without too many problems. Main disappointment is that I forgot to use a discount given to me by reviewing a water feature bought earlier this year!!

Marc Wylie Asked:

I am having a paved area laid for my shed. Do I still need a base?

We Replied:

Dear Marc Thank you for your question. A base is not necessary, you can build the shed straight on the paved surface. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Lauren
