  • 4 x 6 (1.20m x 1.83m) Shire Overlap Reverse Apex Shed£253.99


            The 4 x 6 Overlap Reverse Apex Shed from Shire is perfect if you want to add a compact, convenient and reliable storage space to your garden at a low cost. It is a shed designed for smaller or awkwardly shaped gardens with its smaller footprint and door in the longer side – this makes it perfect for putting in the corner of the long, narrow gardens that are so common in the UK. This layout also gives the shed its trademark “reverse” apex roof, which many customers prefer for style reasons. Constructed to a simple design from high quality timber, this fantastic garden shed is available at a low price while still providing great quality. It is ideal if you have outgrown your existing storage space or simply need to provide sheltered storage for a range of garden items, such as outdoor furniture, tools or gardening equipment.

            This 6 x 4 overlap shed is better than the average overlap shed you may see sold elsewhere. Though it may be low in price, it boasts a number of features that show its quality. What sets it apart is its 34mm framework, which is 20% thicker than anything at this price level and ensures a much sturdier build that will last for years to come.


            The real selling point of this Shed is its 34mm framing. This gives the shed a strength and stability that is unmatched by similar products in this price bracket. The shed’s overlap construction promotes the efficient run off of water, which will help to keep the shed dry inside. However, an appropriate waterproofing treatment must still be used to ensure your shed’s contents remain fully protected from the elements and to ensure your shed will last. The door is robust and is ledged, as well as featuring a hasp and staple for security. An 8mm Oriented Strand Board (OSB) roof ensures good weather resistance. Plus, with roofing felt provided with your purchase, this further adds to the level of protection. The shed floor is also 10mm OSB which should be strong enough to withstand whatever it is you need to store inside. A fixed acrylic window will allow in light, making finding things inside during the day easier.

            Additional Details about your Order

            This shed 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’s care instructions state that you must 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 Sheds are made from metric measurements. We would recommend that the base is at least 50mm bigger in each direction.
