Woodland Trust 6 x 8 Kurva Curved Roof Shed: Safety
The 2×2 framing and shatterproof styrene glazed windows ensure this shed is safe and sturdy. You can tell just by looking at its design that it has been created with safety in mind. There are no rough edges so splinters won’t be a problem. The Shiplap Plus Cladding also makes the structure of the shed extra tough. The lack of a lock may be a safety concern; especially as the shed has large windows. So if you’re planning on storing anything of value in there you will need to invest in a lock separately.
Woodland Trust 6 x 8 Kurva Curved Roof Shed: Ease of Assembly
All Woodland Trust sheds are designed to be easy to assemble. While you will be able to construct it as a 1 person job, we recommend 2 people take on the assembly. This is because while it is easy to put together, it does require a lot of heavy lifting. It is also safer to have 2 people overseeing the build.

Extras can help you to get even more from the shed. The following are sold separately:
- Garden building electrical pack
- 8×6 Pro Shed Base
- 8×6 Portabase
Woodland Trust 6 x 8 Kurva Curved Roof Shed: Pros and cons
Compared to other sheds in the same size bracket, this Kurva Curved Roof Shed has some outstanding features. We like the fact you can choose where both the windows and the door is positioned. It enables you to fully customise the build to fit your garden’s layout. Once put together the shed is extremely sturdy, offering a safe, durable design. While some may find the unpainted look a little too dull for their tastes, it does provide a very rustic style to the garden. You can also paint over it if you want to.
While the shed is built with safety in mind, it doesn’t offer much in terms of privacy. On the one hand, the large windows help a lot of natural light into the shed which means you don’t necessarily need the garden building electrical pack. However, on the other hand these windows let people look inside. So if your garden isn’t very secure, potential thieves could see it as an opportunity. Therefore we recommend you avoid storing anything valuable in the shed. You may also want to buy a lock to further protect it from thieves or young children.
Woodland Trust 6 x 8 Kurva Curved Roof Shed: Conclusion
We think the Woodland Trust 6×8 Kurva Curved Roof Shed is one of the best on the market. It offers excellent value for money thanks to its tough, weatherproof design. It is ideal for those looking for an attractive small shed to store everyday garden essentials.
