This 6 x 4 Mercia Overlap Reverse Apex Shed is a highly affordable choice when it comes to garden storage, despite its dip-treated timber cladding and many helpful features. For storing the items that can often create clutter in your garden and fall prey to damage from the elements over time - such as gardening tools, garden furniture, bicycles, and more - this shed provides all that is needed in one compact structure. The reverse apex layout of this shed also means that the door and window are located on the longer side, making it a snug fit for many spaces such as the end of a garden.



Thanks to the many features included in the 6 x 4 Mercia Overlap Reverse Apex Shed, everyday use is a pleasant experience for any owner of the shed. When entering through the robust and ledged single door, you will easily find any stored items you're looking for thanks to the ample sunlight let in through the fixed window beside the door. This features safe and transparent glazing with styrene, which is perfect for bustling family gardens where damage can be a concern. When it comes to security, we understand the need to keep stored items secure; a padbolt is included with this shed, which is made with galvanised steel and is padlock-friendly. Simply add your own to keep items safe from theft. 

The reverse apex roof of this shed looks stylish, showing off the mineral felt from the front of the garden building. Its angled construction encourages the run-off of rainfall to protect stored items from wet weather, and the underlying material is a water-resistant solid sheet board. This same oriented strand board is featured in the floor of the shed due to its rugged strength, especially when backed up by the strong joists that are included beneath the floor. 

Perhaps the most appealing element of the shed's design is its rustic overlap cladding. The 7mm cladding uses FSC certified timber that has been dip-treated prior to delivery, a treatment that protects your parts during transit and assembly. Once assembled, take the next step in protecting your timber against the elements and keeping your 10-year anti-rot guarantee valid by adding a wood preservative. Protek is a reputable manufacturer of paints and over 60 of their colours are available to order through elbec with your shed. 


Additional Details

Your shed will be delivered flat-packed with all the parts and fixtures needed to assemble your new garden building at home. We recommend allowing one or two days to do so, depending on your prior experience with similar DIY projects, and enlisting the help of an enthusiastic friend to help you put together your shed.
