The Windowless 7×5 Shed is a pressure-treated, overlap apex shed which is part of The Better Shed Range from Forest Garden. This premium wooden shed features a clever modular design, which makes for easier assembly and a stronger garden storage shed. Expertly designed and built by one of the UK’s leading shed manufacturers, The Better Shed’s intelligent modular design means it is delivered in smaller sections, making it far easier to assemble than other garden sheds. This modular design also results in more extensive 28mm shed framing, ensuring an incredibly robust structure and far greater resistance to warping.

The walls are constructed from 7mm overlap cladding, which allows the natural movement of the timber throughout the changing seasons and aids efficient rainwater run-off. Wherever the panels join together, cover strips are used to ensure the structure remains completely weathertight. Pressure-treated and backed by a fantastic 15-year anti-rot guarantee, no further treatment is required, saving both time and money. A 14mm pressure-treated solid timber floor with bearers not only provides a long-lasting, effective barrier against ground moisture, it allows for the storage of heavier tools and machinery too. The 8mm OSB apex roof comes with a felt covering.

Access to the shed is gained via a single door, which can be hung with a left or right-hand opening, to suit the garden’s orientation, and includes double-Z framing to prevent the door from dropping. Tamper-proof hidden hinges and a hasp and staple plate, designed for a padlock (padlock not included), help keep stored items safe, while the windowless design acts as an additional security measure. Once inside, high eaves offer plenty of headroom and make it easy to store taller items. All of the timber is FSC-certified, which is the only wood certification scheme endorsed by the major environmental charities.

Not only robust, weatherproof and ethical, this garden shed’s traditional design, smooth-planed barge boards and finial result in an incredibly attractive appearance. Fixtures, fittings and clear instructions are included for a simple assembly, although a professional installation service is available to purchase as an optional upgrade. A pressure-treated shed base can be purchased as an optional extras, as can a lean-to kit for extra sheltered storage space. Delivery is free to most UK addresses.
