If you want to add plenty of storage space to a garden, the 8 x 6 Mercia Overlap Reverse Shed is a fantastic option for doing so thanks to the high-quality materials that earn it a 10-year guarantee against rot, as well as a very appealing price tag. The interior space created by the 8 x 6 footprint is ample space for gardening equipment like lawn mowers or wheelbarrows, or outdoor furniture you want to store throughout the colder seasons.

Timber used in this shed is dip-treated before it arrives with you, giving it the necessary degree of protection from the elements - such as fungus, rot, or insects - needed for the transportation and assembly stages. However, elbec recommends using a premium wood preservative like Protek to extend the lifespan of your shed. Annual re-application of treatment will keep your shed looking fresh and help keep the excellent 10-year anti-rot manufacturer's guarantee valid. The Protek range is available to order through elbec, and has a wide variety of colours for you to choose from in order to create a unique look for your garden.


Although this shed is available for a low cost, the features of its construction are nothing less than excellent, and give owners everything they need to store items in their own garden. Evidence of this quality can be found in the FSC certified timber used to create the 7mm overlap cladding that makes up the walls of this 8 x 6 Mercia Overlap Reverse Shed. This timber is angled and horizontally overlapped, encouraging the runoff of rainwater and helping protect stored items. It is also dip-treated before it arrives with you, giving it the necessary degree of resistance to damage from the elements while in transit and during the process of assembling the shed at home. We strongly recommend further treatment shortly after construction to make certain the quality of the timber is retained in coming years, and the best way to ensure this is with a high-quality wood preservative such as Protek - available for order via elbec alongside this product.

A single fixed window beside the door of this shed provides a straightforward and cost effective solution for flooding the interior with all the light owners need to use their shed. This window is glazed with a tough styrene material that is virtually impossible to shatter, making it a safer choice than many types of glass when it comes to family gardens where ball games can lead to mishaps

A single door also features in this 8 x 6 Mercia Overlap Reverse Shed, and is ledged for improved strength with the same fine timber used elsewhere. This provides plenty of strength to back up the security offered by the galvanised steel pad bolt, which can be fastened by padlock (not provided)

Throughout this shed, an internal frame using 28mm x 28mm timber creates a robust core strength for the overall building and helps stabilise the wall cladding. To reduce the risk of items stored inside the shed becoming damp, a rugged solid sheet floor is included as standard, as is a solid sheet roof with felt. This style of board is resistant to water due to its resin content, and has good overall strength.

Additional Information

At elbec, we always recommend applying a high-quality wood preservative to the exterior of your garden shed for an improved degree of resistance to the elements, protecting your shed from insect infestation and rot. The products offered by Protek do an exceptional job of protecting the wood to which they are applied, and are available for home delivery from elbec. Caring for your shed is particularly important for keeping the anti-rot guarantee that is offered by Mercia valid for the entirety of its 10-year coverage period. Make sure you familiarise yourself with the care instructions paired with this guarantee to get guidelines for how to get the most out of your shed.

The 8 x 6 Mercia Overlap Reverse Shed will arrive with all the parts and fixtures needed for you to assemble the shed in your own garden. Some prior experience in similar practical projects will certainly be of use, but Mercia provides a clear and detailed instruction manual with the order. It is advised that you assemble your shed with the help of a friend, and it is reasonable to expect the process of putting the shed together to take a day or two depending on past DIY experience.

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.
