If you are a garden owner on the hunt for an affordable and reliable shed for storing items like gardening equipment or bicycles, the 8 x 6 Mercia Overlap Apex Shed takes a tried and tested approach to meet your needs. With a felted apex roof and overlap timber cladding, this is a capable garden shed that won't break the bank. Customers are often drawn to the no frills design of this shed, which prioritises useability and value, paired with a handy 10-year guarantee that manufacturer Mercia offers against rot damage.


Despite the straightforward approach to garden storage taken by the 8 x 6 Mercia Overlap Apex Shed, a handful of features make this a high-quality garden building. In terms of functionality, the fixed styrene window improves your experience of using the shed by providing plenty of natural light to the interior. This ought to make it a lot easier to find items you have placed inside, and generally organise the storage space. A material like styrene is an excellent inclusion for those concerned about safety in a busy garden, as it is virtually shatterproof, while keeping down the overall cost. The window can also be oriented on either side of the shed to suit your surrounding and maximise the available light.

When accessing your shed, the single door provides an easy entrance and has the strength to be continually reliable thanks to a ledged construction and the same high-quality timber found throughout the shed. A turn button offers a way to keep the door closed and the elements out, and there is always an option to upgrade to a pad bolt or hasp and staple if you ever want to improve the security of stored items.

Overlapping rough sawn timber has a rustic look, and is the construction technique behind the 7mm cladding that features in the walls of this shed. The angle of the timber encourages the diversion of water from the interior of the shed, helping keep the elements away from stored items. Timber used in this shed has been pre-treated for significant protection against rot and insect infestation during the transport, but will need further treatment once assembled if you aim to get the best possible lifespan from your shed.

Due to the robust and water resistant qualities of solid sheet board, the material features in both the roof and floor of this shed. In the case of the roof, a final layer of mineral roofing felt is included to protect from the outdoors and create that classic garden shed look. A strong internal framing helps all of these individual elements come together and give you a reliable and useful shed, using 28mm x 28mm timber.

Additional Information

Your 8 x 6 Mercia Overlap Apex Shed will arrive flat-packed with every part and fixture needed to assemble it at home. A detailed instruction manual is included and will guide those with less DIY experience to their goal of a complete garden building. Your amount of previous experience with similar projects will dictate the length of time it takes to finish the shed, but most customers take one or two days to do so. Enlisting the help of an extra pair of hands is strongly advised when building your shed.

At elbec, we recommend applying high-quality wood preservatives such as those produced by Protek to garden buildings that use dip-treated timber, like this shed. Although the pre-existing treatment will offer the necessary level of protection needed to keep your parts safe from the elements during transit and assembly, adding Protek wood preservative will ensure you can get the most out of your timber in the coming years. Closely follow the care instructions for the shed provided by Mercia to make sure your anti-rot guarantee is valid for the full 10 years of coverage.

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 Reviews

"Wonderful experience buying from here. We went to the site to order and the lady who served us, Kelsey I think? Was very friendly and helpful in working to our budget and going through the differences with different products. We needed to replace two fence panels and wanted to get a bigger shed due to one that came with house being small and rotting. Communication was excellent and we found costing was very good as well as the quality of the fence and shed we went for. The customer service team were fab and kept us up to date on Delivary etc. Would defiantly buy from here in future, and recommend to anyone who is needed Fence panels or shed."
