Forest 8 x 6 ft Overlap Reverse Shed
We are committed to Low Prices.
If you find any of our products on the price promise pages advertised, and in stock and immediately available, at any of our competitors we will endeavour to match the price.
Sheds such as this Overlap 8ft x 6ft Apex, with the door on the longer side, are becoming increasingly popular. This reverse style perfectly meets the requirements of many of our customers who may have a restricted outside space.
Built with the same quality materials as any other Forest shed, the cladding is square cut mixed softwood which is very durable and weatherproof. The same can be sand of the black sand felt that protects a sheet roof.
The shed's interior is therefore unsurprisingly very dry, with tough pressure-treated board flooring, ideal for any items that need to be kept in good order. Security is ensured by a reinforced door that has been braced for strength, it can be hung from either side with hidden hinges and there's also a hasp & staple latch.
Polycarbonate glazing is an ideal choice for glazing the single window. For a start it's unbreakable and other qualities include resistance to yellowing and brittleness. Security screws keep the glazing in place.
Only FSC timber from sustainable forests is used in the shed's construction, there's no need to treat with preservative as the pressure treated timber already has a 15-year guarantee against decay and rot.

Unloading Of Your Delivery

Assistance with unloading may be required.

My Second Purchase very happy
I had previously purchased from Gardensite and was so pleased with the quality and service, I decided to search for a shed from them too. After checking out prices elsewhere online, I confirmed they were very competitive so decided to order. The delivery was within three days, and at a time I wanted. Really helpful delivery driver, nothing was too much trouble. That weekend I decided to erect the shed, with a little help from my wife holding items together we had it up in no time. Easy to follow instructions and great quality parts, we now have a shed to be proud of. I am very happy and would definately recommend great value for money and a great quality product.
Does the door on this shed have to be on the left of the window or can it be on the right?We Replied:
Dear Mark Thank you for your question. Unfortunately the door cannot go on the right hand side, it can only go on the side shown. The panel can go on the front of the shed only. 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 MarshaSunday 20th, March, 2016
Do you need the shed base if building the shed on concrete and what sized concrete base do you need for an 8 x 6 shed?We Replied:
Dear Moz Thank you for your question. Ideally, you will require a hard standing surface therefore concrete is ideal. The floor of the shed includes bearers which will sit on the existing concrete surface and will allow for air circulation between them and wooden floor. Your base will need to be several inches larger than the shed base which is 7ft 8ins wide and 5ft 10ins deep. 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 LaurenMonday 16th, May, 2016
Regarding the base for this shed, is it supplied ready constructed? Does the frame need the spikes driving into the ground, with the wooden frame just being clear of the ground surface?, Is the base an exact fit for the shed base to sit on? Are there instructions for siting and setting the base?We Replied:
Dear Geoff Thank you for your questions. 1. The base frame kits are supplied for self-assembly. 2. Yes, the spikes are designed to be driven into the ground to hold the base frame in place, and can also help with minor variations in the flatness of the land. 3. Generally yes, these base frames are designed to be a close fit to the actual shed base size, so there will be no obvious overhang. 4. Please see the instructions here: https://www.forestgarden.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/SBP86.pdf Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701.

Are the floor bearers pressure treated so they can go directly on a concrete base or is a additional base required eg plastic type for additional protection?We Replied:
