(4.4) Based on 6 Reviews


This 6ft wide by 8ft deep shed is from the Forest premium tongue and groove range and provides a practical storage space for your gardening equipment, lawnmower, potting essentials and anything else that you may need to keep stored.

Its tongue and groove construction provides a solid and sturdy storage area, with 11mm thick panels that are not only more substantial than standard versions but also look extremely smart and will easily blend into any background.

Two acrylic windows allow for light to naturally illuminate the inside of your shed during the daytime. They can be opened and closed when needed. This is great during those hot summer months when you need extra ventilation or air to circulate.

With this premium range product you have peace of mind regarding potential rot and the need for annual re-treatment, as all the timber is pressure treated for longer life and durability.

Complete with boarded tongue & groove floor, fully braced door, high-quality stainless steel fittings, lock and key.

Good quality shed

Delivery process was slightly cumbersome requiring two calls to find out why the delivery had not been arranged however happy with shed when it arrived. Instructions could be a little clearer, especially relating to fitting of ironmongery.

Very happy with my purchase

This is a very good quality shed for the money. I think it is worth paying a bit extra as the cheaper sheds are quite flimsy. Quick delivery and easy to assemble

Quality Shed

Delivery was straight forward and it arrived early in the morning leaving the rest of the day free. The delivery guy was pleasant and he positioned it next to the space in which it was to be erected. I am very impressed with this shed. It is good quality and with the instructions provided it was very simple to erect with the help of three strong men. The only problem we experienced was that we found we were missing all of the fittings for one of the windows. After contacting 'Forest' direct, we now have the missing parts and are able to complete the shed. I spent a long time looking for a good quality shed and am extremely happy with this one and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

8 x 6 Garden Shed

We bought this shed as it seemed to stand out from the vista of cheap and low quality sheds available. We were drawn to the materials and the design, both of which seemed to stand this shed apart. Buying was simple. Delivery was exactly as expected and that just left me to put the shed up. That was relatively straightforward with only a couple of errors of judgement on my part (I got the door upside down and as it was made of T&G it left a vulnerable groove edge on the outside of the door and it split straight away). It's a substantial shed that will live it's life in sea air in what can be a blowy environment. Having studied every inch of it while putting it up, I'm sure it is going to last.
