If you are in need of some outdoor storage that won't take over your garden then the 8 x 6 Mercia Pent shed is an ideal choice.  The subtle pent design will bring a new beginning for storing tools, mowers and all those garden accessories we build up over time. 


The walls feature 12mm shiplap timber cladding, that uses a tongue and groove construction to tightly interlock each plank and create a strong overall cladding. This offers a good level of protection against the elements, but elbec recommends additional wood treatment in the form of one of the high-quality preservatives offered in the Protek range – available for order with this shed.  Supporting this wall cladding is an internal frame that uses a sturdy 28mm x 28mm timber and tongue and groove boarded roof and floor that are both strong and more pleasing to look at.

Other features, such as the ledged and braced single door, this extra bracing is what gives the door its strength, there is also the flexibility to locate the door on either the left-hand side or the right-hand side front width, this decision can be made at the time of construction. These different configurations permit you to design the shed to fit in with any garden layout. Other features include a galvanised steel pad bolt, to which your own padlock can be added.

The double fixed styrene window is included with this pent shed, to create a light and airy interior that improves your experience of storing or retrieving items from within. The styrene used for the glazing is highly resistant to shattering as some glass is prone to do, a detail that may be worth considering if your garden ever hosts ball games where stray balls can do damage.

Additional Details about Your Order

Your 8 x 6 Mercia Shiplap Pent Shed is supplied flat packed with an easy to follow instruction manual that shows you how to assemble the shed at home. Putting the shed together may be easier with an extra pair of hands in the form of a friend, and may take one or two days to finish depending on your level of DIY experience. Completing the assembly process can be hugely satisfying, and you should soon apply the wood preservative needed to ensure your 10-year anti-rot guarantee will remain valid.

This Mercia Pent Shed also includes a 1-year manufacturer’s guarantee as standard.

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 7 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.


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