The perfect home for your garden tools and outdoor furniture, the Lotus 4 x 8 Lean To Anthracite Grey Metal Shed is wonderfully stylish, supremely robust, backed by a superb 15 year guarantee and, thanks to 2 years of research and development, the easiest metal shed to assemble. This ground-breaking garden shed is built from lightweight, hot-dipped galvanised steel, supported by a heavy-gauge galvanised steel frame, sturdy base rails and superior bracing throughout. Impervious to rust, the stylish sloping roof and exquisite grey painted finish ensure that this premium garden shed doesn’t just boast brawn but beauty too. Furthermore, virtually no maintenance is required, saving you money and leaving you more time to enjoy using your shed.

Completely fire-resistant, this prime metal shed meets all of the regulatory requirements for caravan parks, so there’s nothing to stop you purchasing a second and enjoying its many benefits whilst you’re on holiday too. Entry to this contemporary garden shed is gained via a single door, which can be secured by padbolt (padlock not included), offering you reassurance that your valuable items are completely safe. Once you’re inside, ventilated gables allow for a pleasant working environment and ensure optimum storage conditions for your prized possessions. With dimensions of 198cm x 124cm x 242cm, this 4 x 8 garden shed comes with a user-friendly instruction manual, video guide and technical support to help you achieve a straightforward, stress-free assembly.

You can purchase a variety of superb accessories too, including a wooden floor, metal foundation kit and Hilti anchor screws. If you do not have an existing level base, you will require the Timber Floor Base Kit OR a Metal Foundation Kit. Please read the section below on choosing between the two kits. You will NOT need to purchase both. Please also note that this shed is supplied WITHOUT flooring. If you desire a floor you will need to purchase the timber floor base kit or add your own with the help of the metal foundation kit. Available in a range of sizes, delivery is free to most UK addresses.

Now you can enjoy the benefits of your new shed with zero hassle by choosing our installation service as an optional upgrade. Our friendly team of professional installers will assemble your new product perfectly, in no time at all, so you do not have to lift a finger. Please be advised that if you select this option, you may have to wait up to an additional 15 days before delivery. Also note that if you select Hilti screws as a further upgrade, they are not covered within the installation service.

Understanding Shed Bases for Lotus Sheds
Your shed base should be constructed on level ground on top of damp proof membrane. What is the Timber Floor Base Kit? This a pressure treated timber base frame – placed on top of your damp proof membrane – which acts as a base for your shed. The kit includes pre-cut boards, completing the base and acting as a timber floor for your shed.

You will need to ensure that the base frame is placed on a reliably level surface. You should then anchor your shed to the base. Hilti screws for this task are available to purchase via the Options tab. What is the Metal Foundation Kit? This is a steel grid – placed on top of your damp proof membrane – which you can either fill with concrete to act as a base or cover with suitable plywood to create a floor. The concrete or plywood is not supplied. You must then anchor your shed to the base. Hilti screws for this task are available to purchase via the Options tab. I have an existing concrete or slab base.
