            The compact 4 x 6 Shire Lewis Shed is a high quality apex shed ideal for providing secure storage for your garden. The compact design ensures that you will not lose too much of your outdoor space.

            This shed fully deserves its title as a 'Professional Shed' because of its extra strong framework, high eaves height for storage of taller items, high door height, full-length piano hinges on the door so you will not get trapped fingers, no hinges showing on the outside, and a fully ledged, braced and framed door for extra security and strength.

            If you are looking for a shed that is super strong, has many security features, is multi-functional, is easy to assemble and will stand up to the test of time, then a Shire Professional is the shed for you.

            Full assembly instructions are provided with the Lewis Shed, and with all the fittings included as standard, assembly is straightforward. Assembly instructions are available in advance upon request. You can also choose the option to have your shed installed for you.


            Walls - Specially designed pine shiplap tongue and groove cladding of 12mm x 120mm produces a shed that is not just durable, but also looks great in your garden. Our planed tongue and groove shiplap cladding design closes the pores and, together with its curved profile, promotes the run-off of water making the shed more water resistant. There is also the option to have a Tongue and Groove Pine Log Pattern 19mm x 114mm wall finish

            Frame - A robust planed 34mm x 34mm (1 1/3' x 1 1/3') framework (walls and floor) it's the framework of a garden shed that gives the building its strength.

            Floor - The floor is manufactured from high quality 12mm x 120mm planed pine tongue and groove matching pattern boarding on 34mm x 34mm (1 1/3' x 1 1/3') joists.

            Roof - The roof is manufactured from high quality 12mm x 120mm planed pine tongue and groove matching pattern boarding. Tongue and Groove roof provides better insulation and gives a smarter finish. Roofing felt is supplied as standard.

            Windows - The opening shed window is glazed with 3mm Horticultural Glass. The glass is retained by profiled beading which is pre-mitred (no awkward corners to be cut). The window uses one of the strongest joints in woodwork, and is properly morticed and tenoned, profiled, and weather resistant. The window allows plenty of light to flood into the shed and can be opened to facilitate ventilation.

            Doors - The door is fully ledged, braced and framed for extra strength and security. As a security measure, the doors are robustly constructed and fitted with concealed full length piano hinges on the right. The 'Piano' hinges not only make the door secure, but they are incredibly strong with the added benefit of not being visible from the outside provides extra security for the shed and offers a better looking shed. The piano hinges also give a smoother operation as they are less likely to get wet.

            Shire Professional Garden Sheds 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). The manufacturer recommends that you apply a 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.

            This Shire product is built to order. If you cancel your order at any time after production has commenced you will be liable for the cost of work in progress to date of cancellation. If you cancel an order after it has been despatched you will be liable for the cost of the building and the cost of return unless in the unlikely event the building is faulty.

            About the Timber

            You will be impressed by the use of natural products and the environmental credentials used on this Professional shed. 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 our professional garden buildings are constructed using high quality spruce and is sourced from Scandinavia under strict FSC guidance. Spruce is more durable than pine and provides a higher quality finish. The timber is slow grown unlike fast grown British timber, being slow grown timber means a tighter grain, less sap and with far less knots and warping occurring. The timber used on the Professional 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 who always look to produce the best garden sheds.

            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.
