Manufactured in the UK, Shire's garden sheds are renowned for their quality and the comapny manufacture what are probably 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.

Customer Reviews

"Last year I purchased from you a 10ft x 6ft Goodwood Gold Sandringham Summerhouse.

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

"Excellent products for the price ranges, and great customer service
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.

"Excellent Shed: I bought a 13x7 Shire Jersey garden shed last year and I'm absolutely delighted with it. I bought it to use as a workshop for my motorbike and I cannot fault it. Putting it together is fairly straight forward as long as you take the time to read and understand the slightly mis-leading instructions! Very good quality shed. I'd definitely recommend it to others."

"Good Value for Price Paid: Compared generally with other suppliers on-line, and particularly the DIY chains, Shire sheds from Elbec are about the best. Moreover, Elbec's website give much more information than most others, which gives any buyer confidence.

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."

"very impressed with elbec efficiency: Elbec were very efficient and helpful from placing order to delivery would recommend to everyone, shed very good value for money with plenty of room inside the only tiny faults were hasp and bolts could be of better quality it would be worth paying a little more for this and instructions could be on a slightly larger scale.

"fantastic shed: great shed .loads of room. easy to put .did it all on my would be alot easier with two people.driver was a great guy and helped with stacking the bits .one bit of advice i would give is to take an hour or so to mark up all the pieces prior to building as alot of bits are of simalar size and it will pay in the long run it took me two days to erect but mostly because of bad weather .all in all a great shed and would buy again . many thanks

"A very good choice in sheds/workshops: We were very impressed with all aspects of dealing with Elbec, including calling them for advice, placing the order and discussing delivery updates, which were made regularly. The deliverery of our workshop was on time and well executed, even allowing for a broken tail lift on the wagon which meant the delivery men had to offload the parts one at a time, stacking them carefully.
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."

"Very impressed with this product: This shed is a bargin price, great quality and looks great in our garden. It's really too good to use as a shed ! It did take me and my husband 3 days to put together due to the many pieces but more than worth it. After viewing prices on the internet this was the best price and delivery around.

Will be using this site to purchase fencing panels later in the year.
