Boasting a strong, weather-proof construction, attractive finish and intelligent design, this 8×6 shed is a dip-treated, apex, shiplap shed and part of Forest Garden’s innovative shed range: The Better Shed. The Better Shed is stronger, easier to build and boasts adaptable features designed to offer the best shed for you and your garden. The shiplap construction features tongue and groove boards which interlock to form a robust, weathertight finish which will resist warping. The scallop design of shiplap creates a handsome finish which aids water run-off. As with all of The Better Shed Range, this shed is modular. With smaller panels, there is more framing than in standard sheds, resulting in a much stronger build.

The modular design also means the panels are less prone to warping. Joins in the modular construction are protected by outer weather covering strips to prevent any water ingress. All of this shed’s timber has been dip treated to offer a 10 year guarantee against rot and fungal decay when supported by annual retreatment. While most sheds come with an OSB floor as standard, this garden shed includes a strong pressure treated 14mm boarded timber floor. Far superior to OSB flooring, this wooden floor is built to withstand storage of your heavier items as well as years of footfall. The floor is further strengthened by pressure treated bearers.

The apex roof is made from 8mm OSB and covered in a durable roof felt. You can rest assured that your stored contents will be secure. The single door of this shed features double Z-bracing for increased strength while the hidden hinges cannot be tampered with from the outside. The door is fitted with a hasp and staple closure, ready for you to add a padlock (padlock not included). The single door can be left or right hand opening. This tongue and groove shed features 2 windows. The glazing is shatterproof PET which is made from recycled materials and will not yellow or become brittle over time. The clever modular design of this shed means that same-size panels are interchangeable.

This provides you with a choice for window placement. Please see the floor plan image for further details. Please note that window panels come with a set of two windows which cannot be separated. Manufactured in the UK, this garden shed is made from UK-grown FSC certified, smooth planed and kiln dried timber. Instructions for a straightforward self-assembly are included. The smaller panels of the modular design are far easier to manoeuvre during build than standard shed panels. Or you can leave it all to the experts and purchase our installation upgrade. This shed should only be built on a level, hard surface and ideally placed on a shed base. Free delivery to most UK postcodes.

  Shed Base Options
Wooden Shed Base Kit As an alternative to laying slabs or concrete, this shed base is a faster, more cost effective DIY solution.

The wooden shed base consists of a framework that is made from UC4 incised timber which has been pressure treated. The pressure treatment ensures that the framework is robust and is guaranteed to resist rot for an impressive 15 years. Size of base: 7.5cm (h) x 236cm (w) x 182.6cm (d)
     
Plastic Shed Base Kit Quick and simple to install, the 8×6 plastic shed base kit is ideal for avoiding the hassle of laying slabs or concrete when preparing a base for a new shed. Its interlocking design makes it easy to put together and, though lightweight, it provides a very strong and durable base for the shed.
