A muted green can soften the impact a shed has on its garden and create harmony between the bustle of human activity and the natural world. The Moss Green paint that is factory applied to the exterior of this shed is a popular choice among garden buildings, and an ideal partner to the warm tones of the cedar shingles. We recommend this particular finish for anyone who would like their shed to blend well with surrounding plants, and provide a more natural look in contrast to the Natural Cream and Pebble Grey alternatives.

Those looking for a premium garden building they can use for a variety of purposes will appreciate the exceptional build quality and functionality of this 6 x 4 Redwood Lap Forest Retreat, whether the aim is to have somewhere to pot plants, realise your DIY dreams, or store garden items outside of the home. A 6 x 4 footprint is an ideal size for fitting snugly into most town or city gardens, while retaining plenty of room inside for a workbench or larger items like lawn mowers and bikes.

Features of the 6 x 4 Redwood Lap Forest Retreat Shed

What sets this shed apart from most others in its size range are its two opening windows, both glazed with toughened 4mm glass. Along with a half-glazed single door, these provide plenty of light to the interior and make the shed truly live up to its name as a ‘retreat’.

When inside, the ample natural light shows off the high quality Redwood timber used throughout the walls. This timber is sustainably sourced, FSC certified, and is pressure treated to ensure an excellent level of protection from weathering and a stress-free experience for the customer. A 15 year anti-rot guarantee is included with this product, providing you follow the care instructions provided by the manufacturer.

Another striking feature in the 6 x 4 Redwood Lap Forest Retreat Shed’s design is its steeply pitched apex roof, which does an excellent job of showing off the Canadian Red Cedar shingles and provides a generous amount of head room when inside.

10mm Redwood timber features in the lapped walls, so the wall thickness increases to 20mm at the points of overlap. This gives the exterior of the shed a traditional look with great visual depth. The roof and floor of this shed feature heavier duty 12mm timber, closely locked together in a tongue and groove construction. This provides a sturdy base for heavier items, and superior weather resistance in the roof.

Any worries about the security of this shed are taken into account, as the shed’s solid stainless steel rim lock means the shed is lockable by a key (included with your shed).

The 6 x 4 Redwood Lap Forest Retreat Shed is delivered to your home for no additional charge. With free installation also included as standard, you won’t need to worry about putting the shed together yourself or finding additional builders to finish the job. A smooth installation process ensures you will be in a great mood to enjoy your shed once it has been assembled
