If you are looking for a spacious, easy-access shed that will last for years to come, look no further than the 8 x 6 Shiplap Shed with double doors from Forest. Constructed from quality timber and boasting a 10 year anti-rot guarantee, you can be certain you will receive value for money as your shed stands up to the test of time. The timber is cut into shiplap tongue and groove panels. This means that each board fits together and forms a seal which offers excellent protection from rain, wind and anything else the British weather decides to throw at it. This is fitted onto a sturdy 28mm framing which, combined with the shiplap construction, combines to give the building fantastic strength. This is all further enforced by thick roof battens. All this give you the peace of mind that you have excellent protection from sun, wind, and rain, as well as a shed that will last and last.

The shed’s attractive apex roof is constructed from a strong sheet board (OSB) which is highly resistant to the elements. It is supplied with green mineral roofing felt which provides an additional layer of protection and helps to prevent damp, rot and water ingress. A 16mm thick timber boarded floor ensures you can store heavy loads inside your shed and is a quality feature you will seldom find on sheds in this price bracket. Access is through sturdy ‘Z’ braced double doors which can be secured shut using the plate hasp and staple and a padlock (padlock not supplied). With many sheds of a similar size, you will struggle to get large items in and out through a single door or narrow double doors, but this shed makes access a breeze. Two virtually unbreakable polycarbonate windows, which you can choose to locate on whichever side best suits your garden at the time of assembly, allow in plenty of natural light and they are securely fixed with security screws.

With a generous eaves height as part of the package, you will be impressed by how spacious the inside is. The shed is designed to be straightforward to construct, with comprehensive instructions included. However, you can choose to have our professional team of fitters construct your shed if you prefer. Finally, an attractive, smooth planed finial and barge boards complete the shed and ensure it will look great in your garden.

Treating your building

The timber is dip treated and guaranteed against rot for 10 years, provided that the shed is isolated from ground contact and is regularly retreated with timber preservative. Many manufacturers recommend Protek Paint, available to purchase from elbec in over 50 different shades.
