            The 4 x 2 Shiplap Storage Box from Shire will give you a handy extra storage space for your garden, decking, patio, terrace or balcony in a neat package. Its compact size means it will be a perfect fit for almost any outdoor space, especially in smaller gardens or narrow passageways, and is ideal for adding that little extra room for storing items when your existing storage spaces are full to bursting. Whether you need the room for kid’s outdoor toys or just to store an array of garden and DIY tools, this storage box gives you a cost-effective way to solve storage problems in your home. Many of our customers like to personalise their storage boxes and we are confident that yours will look great in any colour. Shire recommends you use Protek Paint, available to purchase from elbec in a wide variety of colours. Whether you love a natural, wood stained look or perhaps more bold, bright colours, Protek has a colour to suit any taste.


            Constructed from 12mm shiplap tongue and groove cladding, the contents of your storage box are certain to remain sealed away from the elements. It also features a robust oriented strand board (OSB) roof and floor which gives plenty of protection from rot, damp and the weather. The heavy duty green mineral roofing felt that is supplied as standard also helps ensure that the interior is weatherproofed and that rot is avoided. But this storage box really gets its strength and sturdy construction from its robust 34x34mm framing and 34x34mm floor joists, ensuring that it has a high load capacity and that the whole package will stand up to the test of time. The storage box also features a wire hasp which can be padlocked (padlock not included) so you can leave items secured inside. Plus, with a 10 year anti-rot guarantee, you can be certain that a Shire Shiplap Storage Box will be a feature of your outdoor space for years to come.

            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. 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 wooden garden products 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, being slow grown timber means a tighter grain, less sap and with far fewer knots. The timber used on Shire's products 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.

            Additional Details about Your Order

            If you think that a Shire Shiplap Storage Box would be perfect for you, take a look at our delivery information. Alternatively, why not visit us at our Brookfields Garden Centre showsite near Nottingham? One of our helpful advisors will be on hand to show you around or to help guide you through your order in person.

            This storage box is 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 recommends that you apply a water based top coat. 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. 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 or personalise it to your liking.

            Upon Delivery
            Delivery is made by Shire the manufacturer. Delivery of this item is typically made by a 17 ton flat-bed (similar size to a council refuse lorry). Delivery is typically between 7am and 7pm. The delivery drivers are only insured to deliver to kerb side or driveway. We would not risk damaging your property whilst delivering a product. Unfortunately we will not be able to go through your property. Deliveries are hand-balled off by the driver.

            We would recommend against arranging for a third party to install the building before it's been delivered and checked that all parts are present, as we cannot be held liable for any third-party costs.

            Installation option
            If you are choosing the installation option after placing your order you’ll be contacted within 5 working days by Shire the manufacturer either by a text message or automated telephone message (the latter if a mobile number is not supplied). This message will supply you with the name of the website to go on to where you will be required to accept the terms and conditions for assembly. Any delay in accepting these terms and conditions may affect your timescale. Once you have accepted these terms and conditions you will be contacted during the timescale with a date for the delivery/assembly of your order. The installation option will extend your lead time by up to 15-25 working days. This may take longer during seasonal periods. Please be aware that the installation team will require full access to your garden, 18" clearance all around the building and a firm and level base. Shire's installation team will not bring a building through your home as they are not covered by insurance to enter a customer’s home.


            Please note: all imperial measurements are approximate, and the Shire Garden Storage’s are made from metric measurements. We would recommend that the base is at least 50mm bigger in each direction.
