If you are looking for a reliable way to keep items like tools or lawnmowers out of bad weather, this 7 x 5 Mercia Overlap Shed is an ideal solution that won’t break the bank. This compact shed from Mercia is one of our best selling products at elbec for good reason; it provides great utility at a very reasonable price. Whether you hope to take DIY projects to the next level or store items out of the house, the Mercia Overlap is a solid choice due to some highly durable materials.

We also love the rustic look of the overlapped timber used throughout this shed, and find that wood treatment from the Protek range can be a great option for adding further character while giving your shed further protection from the elements.


The two fixed windows in this shed brighten up the interior with sunlight, and are constructed with tough styrene that does not shatter on impact. This makes them a safer choice than many types of glass, when it comes to family gardens where stray footballs all too often find their way into unexpected places. These windows can also be fitted on your chosen side of your shed to suit the surroundings and maximise your available light.

High-quality, FSC certified timber is used for the walls of this 7 x 5 Mercia Overlap Shed, and has been dip-treated to protect the wood from rotting while in transit and during assembly. We recommend further treatment shortly after construction to ensure the timber's quality is retained for many years to come, such as the widely-used Protek range. The overlapped nature of this timber wall cladding is intended to make rainwater run off, and also has a traditional look that suits many gardens.

A single door also features in this overlap shed, and is braced and ledged for improved strength with the same fine timber used elsewhere. Similarly robust 28mm x 28mm framing gives the entirety of the shed the stability needed to take on the outdoors.

To reduce the risk of items stored inside the shed becoming damp, a rugged solid sheet floor is included as standard, as is a solid sheet roof with felt. This style of board (comparable to a strong plywood) is resistant to water damage and has a high uniform strength. Those who want additional protection from the outdoors may want to add the Mercia Shed Boot Protection Kit in their product options when ordering, which is easy to install and creates further distance between your shed and the ground.

Additional Information

Your 7 x 5 Mercia Overlap Shed will be supplied in a disassembled state, with pre-cut parts ready to be put together over the course of a day or two. An extra pair of hands will be useful in assembling your shed, as will any prior DIY experience, but clear written instructions are provided.

As the timber in this shed has received a dip treatment, it will already have some resistance to the elements, but will need immediate further treatment upon assembling the shed. Make sure to read the full details of the 10-year anti-rot warranty offered by Mercia so that you are fully aware of what care your shed needs to receive in order for the warranty to stay valid.

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.
