A genuine Tongue and Groove shiplap shed offering much better value for money than the average overlap shed. Why?


  1. The timber is much better quality.
  2. The wall cladding is almost twice as thick.
  3. The framework is much thicker.
  4. This shed will last longer, much longer than an overlap shed
  5. plus you get 2 opening windows and a tongue and groove floor in the price. 

Just look at the features below:

The 10' x 7' (approx) Guernsey Apex Garden Shed is not just any shed, it is a shed that will look great in the garden with those criss cross proper joinery windows and extra 1ft roof overhang. When you're looking for a long-lasting and strong garden shed, the tongue and groove method of construction should be on your radar.

One of the advantages that many people suggest is that a tongue and groove garden building looks much tidier and more natural in a garden setting.

You will save money in the long run by purchasing a tongue and groove garden shed as opposed to an overlap model, and your regular maintenance over the years will probably be somewhat easier. It is a shed that is ideal for storing all those items you wouldn't want to store in the home. It is big enough for a ride-on mower. Ideal for homes and allotments, it is a shed packed with features you wouldn't normally find in a shed at this price. 

For starters you get a tongue and groove floor as standard. 

To give your garden shed more style there are the two joinery criss-cross opening windows that are stylishly finished and will give you plenty of ventilation as well as light. Ideal if you want to use the shed as a workshop or indeed a place to put your rabbit hutches in. The panelled walls are constructed from shiplap tongue and groove boards which are superior to sheds advertised as just tongue and groove. Sheds which are constructed from shiplap tongue and groove have a profiled finish.

There is a reason why shiplap has a profiled finish it is to allow better run off of water therefore ensuring the timber dries more quickly and ensuring your wooden shed will last much longer than the equivalent tongue and groove or overlap shed. The double doors provide for easy entry and are secured with a padbolt (padlock not supplied). The timber used is a continental slow grown timber. Slower grown timber means tighter grain, extra strength and longer life. 

Supplied flat packed for ease of handling and assembly. All fittings and felt are included in the price with clear easy to follow instructions. 

Manufactured in the UK, Shire's garden sheds are renowned for their quality and probably make the best quality wooden sheds at this price in the UK.

Timber: You will be impressed by Shire's use of natural products and their environmental credentials. A high quality timber garden building starts with high quality timber, so it is important to know exactly what timber is being used for your garden shed. The most commonly used timber for garden buildings is pine as this is widely available for a very cheap price, however all of Shire's garden buildings are constructed using high quality spruce and is sourced from Siberia and Scandinavia under strict FSC guidance. Spruce is more durable than pine and provides a higher quality finish. This timber is slow grown unlike fast grown British timber, being slown grown timber means a tighter grain, less sap and with far less knots and warping occurring. The timber used on Shire's garden buildings is therefore a more durable timber that will last much longer than other timbers used on garden sheds. Spruce is therefore the timber of choice for companies such as Shire who always look to produce the best garden sheds. 

Walls: Constructed using high quality 12mm thick softwood planed tongue and groove shiplap pattern boarding. All timber is from sustainable sources, so that you can feel good about buying a Shire shed. 

Frame: A robust planed 34 x 34mm (1 1/3' x 1 1/3') framework (walls and floor) that gives the building strength. 

Floor: Manufactured from high quality 12mm planed tongue and groove matching pattern boarding. 

Roof: Is constructed from 8mm Oriented Strand Board (OSB) with included roofing felt. 

Windows: Two opening criss cross windows are included as standard and are properly morticed and tenoned which is one of the strongest joints in woodwork. They are opening, profiled, and weather resistant. The windows have 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. All glazing is retained by profiled beading which is pre-mitred (no awkward cutting required). Being a modular building the window panels are interchangeable and can be fitted on either 10' side or one each on either 10' side. These large windows allow plenty of light to flood into the shed. 

Doors: Supplied with reinforced ledged doors and with 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.

Customer Reviews

"I would like to say a big thanks and quality of this shed.probably like everyone do a tone load of research before buying a shed and to find a reasonable price shed for good quality is hard to come by. I really recommend this shed. Comes with a few extra wood piece and window frames to hold glass in as only negative is the felt nails are just to small so had to buy some 10-12mm felt nails to make it easier as the nails provided don't really do the job to well .but very happy.overall and a big thank you .

"Received with care: I bought this shed from elbec and how easy was it. Just placed the order, got told when it would arrive and there you are. The delivery driver removed the different parts of the truck and carefully placed them where I wanted them. The instructions were clear and it took me no time to put it together. It is great for all the garden stuff that has been littering the garage and 'getting' lost."

"Exceeded expectations: There are some not so good reviews out there - mainly re Shire customer service, so I ordered with some trepidation.
I should not have worried. The shed was delivered on time and to my door. The driver was OK and delivered to my kerbside but no more. All the pieces are light enough for 1 person to move.
The shed kit was all there to the last nail, the instructions were OK but the job looked quite intimidating. It was not!! With the help of my wife the structure was up in 2 days and the detail finished in another 2. After a coat of preservative it now looks great. Time will tell re how long lived it is.
Only complaint is that the felt nails are not long enough - they should be 8 - 10mm not the 5mm supplied. I went out and bought a pack.
Otherwise a good product supplied by efficient people and organise well be Elbec. Definately recommended.

"Exactly as promised.: I was a little concerned about ordering from Shires as some websites were very critical of poor delivery and customer service. I was delighted to receive the shed on the day promised, undamaged and with every single part present. I was awed by the number of parts but the instructions were clear and logical. It has taken me 2 days to erect plus a day to treat all the wood. It now looks really good and I am delighted with it. I definately recommend this shed and Shires and Elbec. "

"Great value sturdy shed: The shed comprised a lot more pieces than I expected, but the instructions were relatively easy to follow, although difficult to read due to poor printing - I too requested the pdf which was much clearer. This was emailed to me very quickly - thanks customer service department! I managed to paint all the panels and strips that would be exposed, before assembling - this meant it was fully weatherproof once erected. Also, painting the window frames and beading before fitting the glass meant no masking needed to keep the glass free of paint. I used 40mm screws instead of the nails in the floor and wall-strips - much better, especially with the springy wall strips. Only negative point - the 0.8mm roofing nails were OK on single thickness felt, but would not stay in on the areas where 2 strips of felt overlap - I got some 13mm felt nails from screwfix and they did the job! Overall, I'm delighted with my purchase."

"Almost 5 stars: Firstly a great price and service so big thanks to all involved. The building itself is of very good quality and straightforward to assemble. For personal choice I do not use supplied nails but substitute with screws.The hinges are adequate. Just. Some extra bracing on the doors would improve rigidity. I would be happy to pay a little extra for these few improvements. All in all a good building that I am happy to recommend, along with elbec and the staff at Shire."

"Top Quality for the price.: bought this item as a workshop/store.
I am 6'3'' and I can stand up inside ok.
The instructions could be a lot better with more close-up pictures or more detailed pictures online.
I paid the sale price which made it good value but I would not have paid the list price.
After seeing the locks etc provided I went to B & Q and bought much heavier ones.
The goods were delivered on time but the floor was damaged and I had to do some major repairs to one section but as I was in a rush it was faster for me to repair rather than complain.The floor is a bit to thin if you are not building directly onto a concrete base.I built mine with a deck at the front and one of my kids wanted to move in as it looks more like a little house."
