Shed Type And Roof Size
Shed-Plus really do know how to make one amazing looking shed and that is evident from the first moment you see the impressive looking, 8′ x 6′ Shed-Plus Champion Heavy Duty Reverse Apex Single Door Shed. It has such a distinctive and classy look to it that we really do feel that this would look great in any type of garden. The timber which has been used for the shed looks very good, but it has also been pressure treated to ensure it is also very strong. The space inside of the shed is impressive, but you still do not need a huge garden to be able to make use of this. The width is 7 feet 11 inches and the depth, 6 feet. This is plenty of space for you to organise a number of different things and one thing that makes organising extra easy is the headroom you have. Shed-Plus make some of the highest sheds out there. The ridge height of this is actually just over 8 feet high. The lowest point of the shed is right around 6 feet which is a good few inches higher than what you get on other sheds.
We love the reverse apex roof that is on here as because of the height of the shed it really stands out and you just know as soon as you see it that the rain is always going to run right off it. Impressively under the roofing felt we have some 12 mm tongue and groove boards which offer a great deal of strength and they also look much more pleasing than regular roofing boards.
Cladding, Frame And Floor
Shed-Plus tend to give their sheds a real uniform and structured kind of look and a huge part of that is the 12 mm tongue and groove shiplap cladding they use. It stands out just so very well and really does make this something which will make you smile when you see it and your friends and family no doubt comment on how nice it looks. Looks are one thing, but this cladding we are very pleased to tell you is going to stand strong against anything our harshest winter can throw at it.
We are not sure how Shed-Plus are able to use a 34 m x 34 mm frame without raising the price, but we are certainly glad they do. A frame this robust will stand strong and proud for many years without you ever having to make DIY repairs to help strengthen it. We would actually go as far to say that even 20 or so years down the line as long as you have looked after it that this shed will be standing just as strong as the day it was built and a huge part of that is because of how solid the frame is.
You can see from the picture just how fantastic that the 12 mm tongue and groove flooring looks. This is a very strong floor which is going to be able to handle a lot of weight. One thing we have to mention about the floor is that the runners or floor joists if you prefer are pressure treated and designed so that the shed is slightly more off the ground that you would expect. This actually will greatly help the flooring of your shed as it will not be sitting directly on the ground.
Treatment Requirement And Warranty
The timber has all been pressure treated, but we still recommend that you give the wood the most protection you can by using some wood treatment.
Shed-Plus are so confident in the design of their shed and their pressure treating technique that they offer a 15 year anti rot guarantee with this shed.
Doors And Windows
The door on the 8′ x 6′ Shed-Plus Champion Heavy Duty Reverse Apex Single Door Shed is something that impressed us a great deal. It has been hung with some very strong, heavy duty hinges and also been given a little extra framing so that it will never sag or become an issue to open or close. The dimensions of the door make getting in and out no problem at all as the door is a very good, 5 feet 11 inches high and 2 feet 11 inches wide. There is no messing around with latches, pad bolts or some kind of latch as there is a proper door knob to make opening and closing the door hassle free.
To let in some air and natural light there is a very classy looking, toughened glass glazed window which can be opened. The design of this window really did make us smile as they have managed to make a perfectly functioning window here, but also make it one of the most stand out features of the shed.
Security And Privacy
That is one very solid door which Shed-Plus have put on here and thanks to the included lock and key, you will have no security concerns at all.
While there is a decent sized window this is still not a shed that is wide open and advertising what belongings you have inside to the whole neighbourhood. We are sure many people will happily add a curtain or even just a piece of fabric if they do have some concerns over people being able to have a peek inside.
Customisation Options And Extras
This is the kind of shed that we feel is best left as it is. This is not because customising is impossible, but because it has such a great design. One way that you could give it your own personal stamp without affecting the design is by giving it a covering with a coloured wood treatment.
You get all you need with this shed which is another thing that we really love about it. If you do plan on doing a few DIY projects in here then they do have a matching workbench which can be bought for, £53.99.
We really cannot think of anything negative to say when it comes to the overall quality. That is how impressed we were with this shed.
Longevity Of materials 8.5/10
Because of that pressure treated timber and large frame, you have a shed here which is going to be with you for a very long time and not really ask a lot of you in terms of care in return.
The floor space is good in here, but you can really make the best of this shed if you take advantage of the extra height you have by using some shelving on the walls.
Ease of installation 8/10
This is not the hardest shed to build and will take around 2-4 hours. In order to build it right you will need a family member or friend to help you out.
£599.99 may seem high to some people considering the size, but remember the extra height you have plus the fact this is made with very high quality materials and you will start to see this is actually very reasonably priced.
Final Thoughts: When it comes to mixing a very stylish look and a strong and long lasting structure the 8' x 6' Shed-Plus Champion Heavy Duty Reverse Apex Single Door Shed is one of the most impressive sheds we have seen in quite some time. The amount of room that you have inside the shed we feel would be perfect for a family looking to keep things tidy and organised. Also even as a workspace or an area to keep tools, the shed would be ideal for. In all we are very pleased with what Shed-Plus have done here and can see this becoming a very popular shed.
