You can store lots of garden equipment and still have an eyecatching feature in your garden with the 7 x 7 Abri Apex Garden Shed which is an attractive version of the conventional wooden shed. The criss-cross opening window enhances what is a delightful and practical addition to any garden.  This shed benefits from a tongue and groove floor included as standard. The shiplap tongue and groove walls offer a superior finish and is better sealed from the elements than an overlap or shed with just tongue and groove boarding.

Manufactured in the UK, Shire's sheds are renowned for their quality and probably manufacture the best value for money shed in the UK today. The timber is sourced from sustainable slow grown forests. Slower grown timber means tighter grain, extra strength and longer life. This is distinguished from fast grown type timber used on cheaper sheds from other manufactures. The shiplap tongue and groove construction means the building is better sealed from the elements.

Framework: The Abri has a robust planed 35x35mm (1 1/2' x 1 1/2') framework (walls and floor) that gives the building strength.

Floor: The shed's floor is manufactured from high quality 12mm planed tongue and groove matching pattern boarding.

Roof: The shed's roof is constructed from 11mm Oriented Strand Board (OSB) with included roofing felt.

Walls: The shed's walls are constructed using high quality 12mm thick softwood planed tongue and groove shiplap pattern boarding.

Treatment: All wooden Shire buildings are supplied pre-treated with a base coat to both sides in a honey brown water based industrial product.

Windows: These are properly morticed and tenoned. They are opening, profiled, and weather resistant. The window has a unique profiled 'lip' that covers the aperture of the opening in the panel making it weather resistant. Casement stays have 2 levels of opening. The glazing is 3mm horticultural glass which many other manufacturers do not use as standard. All glazing is retained by profiled beading which is pre-mitred (no awkward corners to be cut).

Doors: are ledged and supplied with a padbolt. Please note: all measurements are approximate and Shire's garden buildings are made from metric measurements.

Treatment: All Shire garden buildings 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). Shire the manufacturer recommends that you apply a water based 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.

Supplied flat packed for ease of handling and assembly. All fittings and felt are included in the price with clear easy to follow instructions.

"Quality shed at a budget price: After looking at sheds at several garden centers and B&Q, I decided to look on line and came across elbec, advertising the shed I was looking for at a reasonable price. I placed the order and it was delivered on time with no problems at all. It was simple to erect and it only took a morning with a little assistance from my wife. I'm 67 years old, so you don't have to be Bob the builder to put one of these up.
Great shed, if I could have attached a picture I would have, because now it's been painted a nice green and grey it looks great, and well worth showing off.
One minor gripe. Could do with tougher glass or perspex for the windows.
