10’ x 8’ Double Door Premier Tongue and Groove Dutch Barn Shed – Our first impressions
Made in the Dutch barn style, this remarkably attractive 10 x 8 double door shed is a perfect addition to any garden. Stylish but incredibly practical too, the shed has plenty of features that make your life easier. Huge framed double doors bring full access to the interior, and these also have a lock and key structure for your added security and peace of mind.
A key feature of the shed is the tongue and groove cladding, which is 12 mm thick. This means that you have a shed that is hardwearing, and particularly strong against the elements. The heavy duty mineral felt roofing also protects the barn from water damage and weather conditions. It is recommended to place the shed on a base to give it a sturdy foundation. Two different types of bases are available as optional extras; alternatively, the shed may be placed on an existing patio or paving slabs within the garden.
10’ x 8’ Double Door Premier Tongue and Groove Dutch Barn Shed: Questions you may have
The Dutch Barn Shed has a unique design combined with all the practicality and features of a modern shed. In this section we have a look at what makes the barn shed so special and highlight the many features and storage solutions it has to offer you and your garden.
Exterior: Whilst the Dutch shed has a unique design, its construction is traditional and made from 12mm tongue and groove timber cladding. The timber is Baltic sourced pine which is heavier than domestic timber and makes the shed sturdier and more substantial.
Interior: The 10’x8’ barn interior has a particularly spacious feel, due in part to the sheer height and shape of the ceiling. It allows for extra storage space to be created with shelving and for items such as bikes and accessories to be hung on the walls, leaving more floor room for other items.
Window & Doors: On one side of the shed there is a long 2.5mm styrene glazed window, giving a natural light and airy feel to the interior. There may be some issue with security with having visibility into the shed but this would be the only negative to having the window there. The double doors are both wide and tall, providing a large access point to the shed interior and its contents.
Security: The shed comes complete with a rim lock on the double doors for extra security for your equipment whilst not in use.
10’ x 8’ Double Door Premier Tongue and Groove Dutch Barn Shed: How easy to build?
Although the Dutch Barn has a unique style, the overall assembly process is no more challenging than that of a traditional garden shed. This is a self-assembly product, whereby all of the timber panels, fixtures and fittings will be supplied, meaning that all you need is a basic set of tools.
It is recommended that two people assemble the shed together, for both safety reasons and due to the size and height of the shed. A comprehensive instruction manual is included and we expect that this shed could be built within a day by those with a basic knowledge of DIY.
10’ x 8’ Double Door Premier Tongue and Groove Dutch Barn Shed: What is the overall quality like?
The Dutch Barn Shed gives a great first impression with impeccable styling and superior quality construction. The 12mm tongue and groove timber cladding not only gives the exterior an attractive look but provides the shed with strength and sturdiness. The shed is water and weatherproof thanks to the tough exterior and heavy duty mineral felt roofing. The building is constructed from Baltic sourced pine, which is denser and heavier than regularly used domestic timber. It carries a 10-year anti-rot guarantee from the manufacturer provided that it is kept well maintained throughout its lifetime and has a wood treatment applied annually.
