Mercia's 7 x 5 overlap shed with a pent roof is a great option for those seeking a useful storage space with a handsome timber exterior. The smaller size of this shed means it is well-suited to smaller gardens, especially due to the position of the door on the longer side of the shed. Explore the full features of the 7 x 5 Mercia Overlap Pent Shed below and see why it is a highly popular shed that often outperforms its competitors among its price range.



The pent roof design of this shed is ideal for anyone hoping to use their shed for storage purposes. Upon entering the shed, users can enjoy the maximum headroom at the front of the shed, while the lowest point in the roof's height is conveniently towards the back of the shed - where items are likely to be stored. A sloped roof is also preferable when it comes to diverting rainfall away from your shed, as rainwater never has the opportunity to form a puddle and cause damage. The roof of this shed uses a rugged oriented strand board that is water resistant and covered with mineral roofing felt. This same solid sheet board material features in the floor of the shed due to its high uniform strength, particularly when backed up by the strong floor joists beneath this board.

Your daily experience in using the shed has been taken into consideration with a window by the door that does a good job of allowing light into the interior and making it far easier to locate items and organise your storage space. This fixed window features a styrene glazing that is shatterproof, making it the perfect material for a shed that faces a bustling family garden where ball games can go awry.

Perhaps the most appealing element of the 7 x 5 Mercia Overlap Pent Shed's design is its rustic timber 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 up, 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 (such as Protek, available to order from elbec).



The shed is supplied untreated except for a factory applied base coat.  This base coat may differ in shade across parts. This dip-treated product requires treatment immediately after assembly, and thereafter annual re-treatment to protect against rotting. There is a 10 year anti-rot guarantee from Mercia, dependant upon the building being treated annually with a wood preservative and a waterproof topcoat in line with the manufacturer's guidelines.  Our manufacturer recommends Protek Royal Exterior wood paint to protect your shed, you can select your colour choice from the paint options on this page.  Alternatively, if you don't see a colour you like, elbec offer the full range of Protek paints to personalise your garden building.  Click here for the full range of Protek Royal colours.


Your shed will be delivered flat-packed with all the parts and fixtures needed to install 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.  You have the option to enlist the help of our manufacturer's professional assembly to install your shed.

Booking Delivery

You will be required to book your delivery date at the time of placing your order (except for Metal Shed). Our 'Request a Delivery Date' service is available to the majority of areas and you'll find that the majority of the UK postcodes are FREE but some areas may incur a delivery surcharge and some postcodes are not covered at all. Select a 'requested delivery date' by entering your postcode in the 'Request a delivery date' section above. You will also be notified at this time if your area incurs a surcharge or delivery is not covered in your area.

Prior to Delivery

On the morning of your delivery date, you'll be sent an update by text with an estimated 2-hour delivery slot (this update can only be provided where a mobile number has been supplied on the billing address section at the time of checkout) together with a link to the manufacturer delivery portal where you'll be able to track your order.

Please note: Mercia Metal Sheds ONLY - your order is delivered by a courier you will not be notified prior to the delivery. If you are not in on the day of the delivery you will be carded and asked to contact the courier to arrange a new mutual delivery date. The estimated delivery lead time for Mercia's Metal sheds is identified on the product for the metal shed. Lead times are on working days (Monday - Friday) excludes Bank Holidays. These estimated lead times are provided by the manufacturer. Some remote areas will take a little longer.

Upon Delivery

Your order is delivered either kerbside or driveway and will be delivered on either a 3.5T, 7.5T or 18T Lorry. Unfortunately due to health and safety and insurance liabilities the driver will not be able to take your goods around to the back of your property but may upon request place the product at the side of the house if there are no access or restriction issues. We would not risk damaging your property whilst delivering a product to an unsafe location. Unfortunately, we will not be able to go through your property.

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.


Orders with Assembly 

The lead time for our installation option is around 12 weeks from the date of order. With the installation option, the majority of orders will have their delivery and installation on separate days; there will be a small number of orders which will have delivery and installation on the same day. You will be advised by the manufacturer's installation team which category your order falls into.

Depending on the installation option for your order, you will be contacted within the delivery timescale and given a date for either delivery/assembly on the same date or a separate date for delivery and assembly.

Customer Questions

From - Mr T
Hi. Can the door be fitted on the left hand front side, rather than the right hand front side as shown in your photo? i.e. can the window panel/front door be interchanged? Thanks

Elbec Response
Unfortunately the window panels are not interchangeable on the 5x7 shed and as standard are fitted on the right as you face the building.
