Shed Type And Roof Size
With a very impressive and clever design and also a whole lot of storage space for you to make use of, the 12′ x 6′ Traditional Standard Pent Shed from Treetops Traditional is a shed that we really do like. The width is where most of the size of this shed is and that is a very large 12 feet and the depth is 6 feet. We know this is a very big difference between the length and the depth, but this means this large shed will be able to fit into gardens of all sizes which we really like. The height is ideal inside of the shed as at its highest point there is plenty of headroom with it being, 6 feet 4 inches high and even at the lowest point it is 5 feet 11 inches so there is still a very decent amount of height here.
The roof used on here is a pent roof and it is made in very impressive way. The boards used for the roof are not cheap at all, Treetops Traditional have spared no expense as they have used tongue and groove boards. On top of this there is roofing felt that is of a very high quality. We really like what they have done with the roof as it offers plenty of headroom, can take a lot of weight and it also has a great look to it.
Cladding, Frame And Floor
The tongue and groove shiplap cladding that is used on this shed really is amazing. It is 12 mm thick so while it has a very attractive and smooth look to it. The cladding is also going to work wonders when it comes to keeping out the rain. The cladding really does give this a very high quality look which we are sure is going to make it stand out very well in your garden.
The frame that is inside here is something we have seen Treetops Traditional use many times and that let us tell you is not a bad thing at all. This frame has rounded edges and is a very impressive, 44 mm x 27 mm which gives the whole structure just a very secure, robust and long lasting feel . We have no worries about this frame at all and are sure it is going to keep strong for many years.
The flooring in this shed is made with the same amount of care, style and attention to detail as the roof is. They have used the same 12 mm tongue and groove boards and they work very well as they can take a lot of weight and they also have a good look to them. This kind of flooring is going to be ideal if you have very heavy items that you would like to store. Also because of the large size of this shed, you will probably want to spend some time in it and the last thing you will want is a cheap floor under your feet, well that is not a problem you will face with this floor.
Treatment Requirement And Warranty
All of the wood will be given a dip treatment that will protect it in the short term, but a coating of treatment should be applied relatively shortly after construction. To keep the wood in the best shape possible then you will need to give the shed a fresh coating once a year.
It is a good job that the 12′ x 6′ Traditional Standard Pent Shed is made so well and has the usual Treetops Traditional high quality running through it because you only get a one year guarantee with the shed. While not the longest guarantee, we think as the shed is so well made, you should not have to make use of it.
Doors And Windows
As standard the shed comes with a well made door that is 5 feet 5 inches high and 2 feet 6 inches wide. Holding the door in its place are some very high quality hinges which actually impressed us as these types of hinges are known to prevent the door from sagging. Interestingly, Treetops Traditional will allow you to change the style of the door to one that resembles a stable. Also if you do not mind paying an extra, £53.99, then you can make the door a 4 feet wide, double door.
The shed comes with some very nice horticultural glass windows that are tough and will let plenty of light into the shed. These as standard are fixed windows, but for a cost of £31.99 per window you can upgrade them so that they open.
Security And Privacy
That awesome door not only close very securely, but it also has a lock included. This is fantastic as it means you can lock up the shed and not have to buy and then fit a padlock. In general the whole shed has a very sturdy feel to it so we are sure anything you place in here is going to be kept safe.
The windows are on the large size which is great for the look and also for letting in light to the shed, but not so fantastic when it comes to privacy. However, you can request that there be no windows at all on the shed. Or if this is a little bit too extreme then you could always put up some blinds to cover the windows.
Customisation Options And Extras
This is a shed where you actually can have quite a bit of say in the way that it looks. First of all there is the treatment, wood treatment can be bought in all kinds of colour so this is a way you can change the style of the shed. Also you can decide where the door will go, there are five different positions that the door can be placed. One thing though we must tell you is that where you have the door will depend on how many windows you can have on the shed.
As well as the double door and having the windows open, two other extras are available. First of all we have a set of wooden floor bearers which are priced at, £47.99. For £109.00 there is an installation service available to you which is something to think about if you and DIY do not normally get along too well.
High quality and Treetops Traditional always go together and that is the case with this shed.
Longevity Of materials 8.5/10
One thing we really like about this shed is the very intelligent selection of materials. They have been selected because of their looks, but also because of how they are so long lasting.
This is one very large shed and we love how they have mixed that vast amount of width with a more modest depth. This gives you a very interesting shape to work with and also ensures that you do not need the world’s largest garden to enjoy it.
Ease of installation 7.5/10
As is the case with sheds of this size, this will be a two person job and will take a little while to build. But it does come with some easy to follow instructions so as long as you follow them and take your time, we are sure you will be fine.
Honestly we have seen sheds that offer nowhere near this amount of storage space and cost considerably more. So yes we do consider this a shed which offers excellent value for money.
Final Thoughts: There are just so many thing we love about the 12' x 6' Traditional Standard Pent Shed that this really is a very easy recommendation to make. The size it offers along with that awesome design makes this one of the most practical and attractive sheds we have seen in quite some time. One thing that we think makes this something ideal for any garden is that you can decide where the door goes and even its style. Those excellent, horticultural glass windows also allow you to tinker with them in whether they open or not and even how many are on the shed. In all this is something we really like and we are sure you are going to be very impressed with it also.
