The 3 x 6 Pent Overlap Shed with Double Doors from Shire is a space-saving and great value garden storage solution made from quality, pressure treated timber for a longer life. It is the perfect purchase for anyone who needs extra storage space but has limited room outdoors. With a compact footprint and a depth of just under 3ft, it fits unobtrusively in small or awkwardly shaped gardens. Its shape even means it could be the perfect fit for a narrow alleyway, a patio or at the side of your house.

Although it has a small footprint, this store provides an impressive amount of storage. Inside, you will find more than enough room for a good assortment of your garden tools, wellies and kids’ toys. It could even be ideal for storing garden furniture or perhaps a couple of bicycles. In short, you are certain to be impressed by the amount of storage you will get in such a compact, excellent value package.


The 3 x 6 Shire Pent Overlap Shed with Double Doors is made using pressure treated timber. Pressure treated timber has been impregnated under high pressure with preservative, a process that provides the wood with unbeatable protection against rot, insect damage and mould. Simply put, pressure treated products are top of their class when it comes to quality timber buildings that will stand up to the test of time, and its accompanying 15 year anti-rot guarantee is testament to Shire’s belief in the quality of pressure treatment. Customers should note, however, that the manufacturer’s care and treatment instructions must be followed in order for this guarantee to remain valid. As part of this, a quality timber treatment must be used. At elbec, we sell Protek Paint products, a brand that is highly recommended by ourselves and Shire.

Unlike many smaller storage solutions, this product is supplied with wide-opening double doors. This makes the storage and removal of items as easy as possible and gives you extra flexibility with what you can fit inside. The doors can be secured by attaching a padlock (not supplied) to the hasp and staple that is included with your order. The shed’s overlap construction promotes the run off of water and helps to keep the interior protected from the elements. A robust OSB floor and roof provides additional protection for the interior from the weather. Finally, 34 x 34mm framing gives the building its strength and is up to 20% thicker than the framing you will find on similar sheds in this price bracket.

All the fixtures and fittings that you will need to complete assembly are supplied with your order, including roofing felt. Make sure to follow the instructions and the manufacturer’s care guidelines carefully to get the best out of the building and to maintain the validity of your guarantee.

About the Timber

You will be impressed by Shire's use of natural products and their environmental credentials. A high quality timber product starts with high quality timber, so it is important to know exactly what timber is being used for your shed. The most commonly used timber for garden buildings is pine (pinus) as this is widely available for a very cheap price, however all of Shire's garden buildings are constructed using high quality spruce (picea) and is sourced from 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 and Eastern Europe's timber, and being slow grown means a tighter grain, less sap and with far fewer knots. The timber used on Shire's range is therefore a more durable timber that will last much longer than other timbers. Spruce is therefore the timber of choice for companies such as Shire who always look to produce the best garden building.

About Shire

Established in 1945, Shire are the country's leading, and one of the oldest established, manufacturers of garden buildings. Shire benefit from being adjacent to the Port of Wisbech, through which Shire discharge timber into their warehouses. Shire is the proud manufacturer of the largest timber garden building range produced in the UK. At peak times they produce thousands of buildings a week. Their range includes Garden Sheds, Log Cabins, Eco Homes, Home Offices, Sheds, Workshops, Summerhouses, Playhouses, Arbours, Storage units and Pet houses. Their production facilities cover some 23 acres and include huge undercover stock holding facilities for many of their ranges, an advanced high speed timber planing mill, modern well equipped joinery production facility and semi-automated production lines. All Shire garden buildings are manufactured in the UK using the finest spruce timber, imported directly and machined through the most up to date machines to ensure the best quality and best value for money products in the UK.

Additional Details about your Order

This shed is pressure treated. Pressure treatment is almost colourless, except for a light green tint caused by the copper content in the preservative. In the course of time, the treatment greys, but this does not affect the quality. This means you do not immediately need to add additional treatment to the shed yourself, but you will need to follow the manufacturer’s care instructions regarding later treatment and protection of your shed. Many customers like to personalise their sheds by adding an exterior wood treatment which also adds additional protection to the timber and a splash of colour. Shire recommends Protek Royal Exterior wood finish, available from elbec in many different colours. This is also a great way to refresh the look of your shed over time.
