            The 8 x 5 Redwood Lap Forest Retreat Shed is the ideal purchase for anyone who wants to take their garden seriously and make the most of its available space. The larger 8 x 5 footprint of this model (compared to its 6 x 4 sibling) provides the owner with a wonderful and versatile space for gardening, creating, or relaxing, alongside the shed’s storage functions. This shed comes with a highly versatile Pebble Grey paint finish already applied – an unconventional choice of colour that is a stunning contrast to the Red Canadian Cedar shingle roof. Explore the alternative finishes of Moss Green and Pebble Grey available for order from elbec.

            In many garden sheds, using the space for anything but storing items can feel like making a compromise. Premium Redwood timber walls and the inclusion of four windows – two of which can be opened – make the interior a pleasant spot for taking on DIY projects, gardening tasks, or simply sitting and relaxing with a book. The generous amount of space provided by this larger 8 x 5 model means there is extra room to fit a work bench or shelving unit at the back of the shed without feeling confined by your available space.


            What sets this shed apart from most others in its size range are its four windows glazed with toughened 4mm glass, two of which can be opened. These, along with a half-glazed single door, provide plenty of sunlight and make the shed truly live up to its title as a ‘retreat’. When inside, the ample natural light shows off the high quality Redwood timber used throughout the roof, ceiling, and walls. This timber is sustainably sourced and FSC certified, and is pressure treated to ensure an excellent level of protection from weathering and a stress-free experience for the customer.

            Another striking feature in the Redwood Lap Forest Retreat Shed’s design is its steep pitch apex roof, which does an excellent job of showing off the Canadian Red Cedar shingles and provides a generous amount of headroom when inside.

            Whether you plan to use this shed as a place for work, leisure, storage, or combination of all three, the superior materials and construction methods used for the Redwood Lap Forest Retreat Shed ensures it will be a standout feature in your garden for years to come. 10mm timber features in this shed’s lapped walls, so the wall thickness increases up to 20mm at the overlaps. This gives the exterior of the shed a traditional finish with great visual depth. The roof and floor of this shed feature heavier duty 12mm timber locked closely together in a tongue and groove construction. This provides a sturdy base for heavier items, and superior resistance against weather and rot.

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

            Prior to Delivery

            Once you have a confirmed delivery date if you provide us with a mobile number this should be the first number and not the alternative number), we can confirm the day before delivery if your delivery will be morning or afternoon.

            Upon Delivery

            Your order will be delivered kerbside or on your driveway. Due to health, safety, and insurance liabilities, the driver will not be able to take your goods to the back of your property but – upon request – may place the product at the side of the house if there are no access issues. This is to avoid risking damage to your property while delivering to an unsafe location. We will not be able to go through your property.

            We advise against arranging for a third party to install the product before its delivered and checking that all parts are present,  we cannot be held liable for any third-party costs caused by delays.


            If you have selected the service for installation, we can confirm that delivery and installation will occur on different days, and the length of time required for delivery and installation will depend on the specific item you have chosen. You will not be able to pre-book a delivery or installation date when placing your order, as this will be arranged directly with the manufacturer. Within 5 working days of placing your order, the manufacturer will contact you via email to explain how to prepare the base for installation. The base must be either a solid, level timber supportive base, concrete, concrete slabs, or a pro shed base (plastic base). You should ensure that there is a clearance of 18 inches (450mm) of working space around the base so that the installers can access all areas of the structure. Shortly after receiving the email from the manufacturer, you will receive a phone call to schedule a convenient delivery and installation date. Installation may occur within 15 working days of delivery.   Note: This service is not available on all Forest products, please check if this is available for your chosen product under the 'Choose Additional Options' above.


            Please note: all imperial measurements are approximate, and the Forest Garden Wooden Sheds are made from metric measurements. We would recommend that the base is at least 50mm bigger in each direction.
