This 8 x 6 Mercia Budget Overlap Windowless Shed is a simple and unpretentious garden shed that is ideal for storing all kinds of items you would rather not keep in the house, from lawnmowers to bags of compost. A no frills garden shed like this one has everything you need to keep items out of the rain and hidden from view. Owners will appreciate the classic design of this apex roof shed, and the durable materials that are behind its construction.

The characterful look of an overlapped shed is a classic feature of many gardens, but the addition of a wood preservative like those offered by Protek will bring some extra rustic charm to the shed while protecting its exterior from rot. Many paints and stains by Protek are available for order from elbec.


The 7mm timber used in this shed's walls is overlapped, encouraging rainwater and hail to run off and away from the interior of your shed. This high-quality timber has received a dip-treatment in order to maintain its condition in transit and prior to assembly in your garden, but we recommend applying a top quality wood treatment as soon as possible. A good preservative - like those manufactured by Protek - will make sure the wood in this shed lives up to its full potential for many years, reducing the risk of rot.

An internal frame ensures the structural stability of this shed, and uses 28mm x 28mm timber throughout. FSC certification is the gold standard for timber, and all of the wood used in the Mercia Windowless Overlap Shed meets the requirements for this certification as it is sourced from sustainably managed forests. This makes the shed a reassuring purchase for the eco-minded garden owner.

This shed features a single door that provides easy access to the interior of the shed, and is ledged and braced with a 'Z' style frame that makes for a sturdy starting point if you are aiming to increase the security of your shed with an addition of a lock.

Both the floor and roof of this shed feature a robust and water resistant oriented strand board. This board is supported by a felt covering on the roof, and timber joists beneath the floor to help support the strength of the floor and keep damp away from your items.


Additional Information

Your 8 x 6 Mercia Budget Overlap Windowless Shed will be supplied flat-packed so that you can assemble the shed at home, with all the parts and fixtures needed to complete the building. elbec recommends putting your shed together with the help of an extra pair of hands, and leaving one or two days to make sure you have the time to finish your shed. Those who have not had much DIY experience will be pleased to know that a detailed and clear instruction manual is included with your order.

Mercia offers a 10-year anti-rot guarantee with this shed for no extra cost, giving the owner plenty of confidence regarding the durability of the shed. Ensure you read the full details provided regarding how to care for your shed to keep this coverage for the duration of the ten years.

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.
