8’ x 6’ Single Door Tongue and Groove Pent Shed – Our first impressions
This 8 x 6 shed is characterised by the hardy tongue and groove work that runs throughout. This interlocks, and therefore prevents the entry of water. This is backed up by a 10 year anti-rot guarantee, making this building 100% percent resistant to rot. The pent roof allows for easy run off of rainwater.
This means you get added protection against damp and rot. The styrene window brings an extra level of protection, because it is safer and more durable than conventional glass and still able to provide plenty of light access. A very practical and secure shed for any garden. The 8’ x 6’ interior space is a great size for the average household’s outdoor and garden equipment. Interior shelving or freestanding storage solutions could be added to create further storage and an overall organised space. The simple and traditional design means that the shed would look at home in virtually any style of garden.
8’ x 6’ Single Door Tongue and Groove Pent Shed: Questions you may have
The pent shed has a simple design that would be appealing to those looking for an all-in-one easy storage solution for their outdoor and garden equipment. Although the shed is basic, both externally and internally, it essentially provides a blank canvas on which you can create the perfect storage facility for your needs. In this section we have a look at the features that the tongue and groove shed has to offer and ways it can be used to best suit your requirements.
Exterior: This model is a plain wooden shed that would look at home in any garden as the main or secondary storage solution. The shed is constructed from Baltic sourced pine in 14mm shiplap tongue and groove cladding. This provides the exterior with a protective layer against the elements, as well as damp, mould and rot.
Interior: The 8’ x 6’ shed interior is essentially a blank canvas on which you can create your ideal storage solution. Whether this is by adding hooks, shelving or freestanding storage and therefore freeing up floor space for larger items, you can create an organised space to suit your particular needs.
Window & Door: The simple fixed window is 2.5mm styrene glazed and lets light into the shed, ensuring a nice environment. The single door is large for a single and although larger objects may need some negotiating through the door frame, it is adequate for the size of shed.
Security: The shed comes complete with a pad-bolt to keep the door securely shut and onto which a padlock can be attached to keep the door locked and your items secure whilst not in use. A padlock may be purchased independently at a modest price.
8’ x 6’ Single Door Tongue and Groove Pent Shed: How easy to build?
The pent shed’s simple design is matched with an equally simple and straight-forward assembly process for those with basic DIY knowledge and experience. A professional home installation service is also available for those that are interested. The shed will arrive in flat-packed form in a package with all the necessary timber panels, fixtures and fittings required for assembly.
Two people are required to build the pent shed, for safety reasons and for efficiency. We expect that this model could easily be built within a day, following the step-by-step instructions to keep you on the right track.
8’ x 6’ Single Door Tongue and Groove Pent Shed: What is the overall quality like?
This 8’ x 6’ shed is spacious enough for the average household’s outdoor and garden equipment as well as being a protective and practical storage solution. The pent roof is a main feature for this model, as it is something that sets it apart from other similar models. The roof is sloped to allow rain water to slide down, preventing settling water and subsequent damage. The exterior is constructed from 14mm shiplap tongue and groove cladding in Baltic sourced pine, which is notably denser and heavier than domestic pine making the shed more durable against the elements and long lasting. There is a single fixed window to the front of the shed, with 2.5mm styrene glazing, allowing light into the interior. The shed is very protective against the elements all year round and creates the right conditions for equipment to be protected from damp, mould and rot.

If you are looking for a basic, practical shed that will store all of your outdoor and garden equipment then look no further than the 8’ x 6’ Single Door Tongue and Groove Pent Shed. This roomy shed has the additional feature of a pent roof that discourages water from settling and prevents water damage. Although this is a great shed, we feel that the price is a little on the high side for a basic shed such as this, and compared against similar models.
