Our experts have not yet done a full review of this product. Please check back soon for the full review, in the meantime here is what the manufacturer says.

A traditional garden shed boasting a handsome appearance and a robust tongue and groove build, the Shire Durham 8×6 Shed is an excellent choice for your garden storage. The Durham’s 12mm shiplap tongue and groove cladding is attractive but, more importantly, provides a tight interlocking finish offering strength and weather-resistance. Plus, the floor is 11mm OSB prepared to withstand storage of garden tools and protect the shed from the damp ground below. Made from OSB and covered in mineral felt, the roof is smartley finished with barge boards and a finial. An excellent bonus of this shed is its large opening window.

This can be placed to either side of the shed to suit your garden space or simply your preference. The light and ventilation provided means that the shed can also be a comfortable workplace for you to pursue DIY and gardening tasks. The single door is fitted with a padbolt ready for you to add your own padlock (padlock not supplied) should further security be required. This shed has been dip-treated to provide a 10-year anti-rot guarantee, when supported by annual retreatment. To increase the weather-resistance of your shed, opt for our Top Coat upgrade. A protective wood stain, the Top Coat is a waterproof coating which resists algal and fungal attack as well as nourishing the wood.
