Back by popular demand we have managed to secure a limited amount of stock for one of the best selling sheds on the UK market. Manufactured in the UK, Shire's garden sheds are renowned for their quality and probably manufacture the best value for money wooden shed in the UK today. This tongue and groove Jersey Apex Garden Shed is great for those that want a lot of space. Built to metric measurements. Perfect to use for storage for items such as garden tools or as a workshop. It now has three criss-cross joinery opening windows for maximum brightness inside and double doors for easy entry.
All timber is from sustainable sources, so that you can feel good about buying a wooden Shire shed. Shire garden buildings are made from a high grade ship-lap tongue and groove construction. This is distinguished from fast grown type timber used on cheaper sheds from other manufactures. Tongue and groove construction means the building is better sealed from the elements. The timber used is a continental slow grown timber. Slower grown timber means tighter grain, extra strength and longer life.
Framework: The Jersey has a robust planed 35x35mm (1 1/2' x 1 1/2') framework (walls and floor) that gives the building strength.
Floor: The floor is manufactured from high quality 12mm planed tongue and groove matching pattern boarding.
Roof: The roof is constructed from 8mm Oriented Strand Board (OSB) with included roofing felt.
Walls: The walls are constructed using high quality 12mm thick softwood planed tongue and groove shiplap pattern boarding.
Windows: These are properly mortised and tenoned. There are three opening windows which are profiled, and weather resistant. The window has a unique profiled 'lip' that covers the aperture of the opening in the panel making it weather resistant. Casement stays have 2 levels of opening. The glazing is 3mm horticultural glass which many other manufacturers do not use as standard. All glazing is retained by profiled beading which is pre-mitred (no awkward corners to be cut).
Doors: Supplied ledged and with a padbolt.
Treatment: All Shire garden buildings are supplied pre-treated with a base coat to both sides in a golden brown water based industrial product (colour can vary from the picture shown). Shire the manufacturer recommends that you apply a water based top coat of your choice. This will protect the timber from weathering on your shed making it last longer and will need to be repeated accordingly in relation to the manufacturer's instructions.
Supplied flat packed for ease of handling and assembly. All fittings and felt are included in the price with clear easy to follow instructions.

From - Mr W
Is it possible to position all 3 windows on one side of the shed?
All the panels are interchangeable and can be positioned on any side and in different positions along the shed side walls.
From - Mr R
I would like to know the distance between the door hinges and the corners of the shed
The distance from the internal corner to the hinge is 314mm and the external corner is 348mm.
Along with my two son-in-laws we erected it one Sunday and I am totally pleased with the result.
The instructions were quite easy to follow but suggest they are read twice before erecting.
The summerhouse is very well made and is sturdy and looks good in my garden (photo attached). I have since ordered a 13ft x 7ft shed which again is super quality and like the summerhouse proves to be excellent value for money. Also just this week I have also ordered a 4ft x 4ft playhouse for the grandchildren. Your staff are very friendly and helpful when ordering and your delivery man was very polite and helpful too.
Thank you to all concerned. I would certainly recommend your quality and value for money buildings
I ordered two sheds from Elbec, which came from two separate companies. The prices were the most competitive I found. Delivery was without a problem, quality totally acceptable (these were a bike shed and a workshop) and the instructions simple enough for me to use (never built one shed before...) When complete even my builder was surprised by how well I'd done (OK, my three small children and a teenager helped - but it's not rocket science...) Just ordered several more sheds (big garden) and the customer service was excellent, highlighting a better product for less money.
I paid extra for Top Coat Treatment, and would recommend this option - particularly if the intended site is against a boundary, making access difficult.
The shed's instructions could do with improvement though. Whilst many photos are given, some would be better as diagrams (which is why I knocked a star off). Also, as the floor is tongue and grooved, make sure that the entrance doesn't have the grooves (the tongues have been removed the other end) as this reduces strength. I bought another couple of battens from our local timber yard to place under the door way for even more strength.
Lastly, I departed from the instructions by setting the windows in using clear silicone sealant, not the panel pins provided. Much quicker and neater in my opinion."
Hello, please could you pass a big thank you to the delivery guy which delivered our shed On Monday. He was extremelly helpfull and polite. Please can you let his employer know that he has exceptional guy there! Kind Regards L Higley"
As I was prepared with a good flat base (ESSENTIAL!!!) We spent a cople of days painting everything again. In retrospect, the pressure treatment would have been a very good option, but hindsight etc...
Putting the unit up was easy. It took a day to erect, and half a day to roof and fit doors /glazing etc.
Would we want any changes? Just a couple. The instruction sheet needs to be on two sheets at a larger scale. The pictures are great, but a bit small. Also, I would rather have paid a few pounds more to have a better quality hasp and bolts.
Otherwise it was a very good experience."
Will be using this site to purchase fencing panels later in the year.
