Combining high quality materials with innovative design, this Lotus Pent 8×4 Heritage Green Shed offers you the highest specification for lightweight metal sheds on the market. The Lotus range of garden sheds is the final result of two years of research and development to produce metal sheds which are stronger, more durable and easier to build but still excellent value. This garden shed is manufactured from hot-dipped galvanised steel throughout for an incredibly sturdy and robust build. Unlike traditional wooden garden sheds, this metal shed requires minimal if any maintenance and is rust, rot and rodent proof – saving you time and money. A 15 year warranty supports this premium quality construction.

In traditional heritage green this attractive shed is sure to complement your garden. This pent roof shed has higher eaves than most to provide extra headroom for you and more storage space for your garden equipment. Ventilated gables combat condensation and improve airflow. Even the door and track are designed for strength and simplicity. This shed is also perfect for caravan parks where non-combustible storage sheds are compulsory. To make assembly easier for you, the innovative design means significantly fewer parts. With a detailed instruction manual and informative online video, assembly is quicker and easier. If you do not have an existing level base, you will require a 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. A range of sizes and colour options are also available. 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. 15 year warranty

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. Do I need to buy one of these kits? No, you do not need to buy a kit. To minimise condensation, ideally your existing base will have been constructed on top of a damp proof membrane. You will need to anchor your shed to your hard surface.
