If you are looking for a top quality shed that is well-suited to the end of your garden, the 8 x 6 Mercia Overlap Pent Shed makes a great home for items like gardening equipment, tools, garden furniture, and bicycles. A wider front side and just under six feet of depth makes this pent roof shed a strong contender when it comes to saving space in the gardens of terraced houses. And despite a low price, this shed enjoys the high-quality timber cladding that Mercia is known for. 



Many useful features make using this shed in daily life a pleasant experience. For example, a window by the door allows plenty of light into the interior and makes it far easier to locate items and organise your storage space. This fixed window is glazed with styrene, a shatterproof material that is ideal for any shed that faces a busy family garden where stray footballs or toys can cause damage. 

Perhaps the most appealing element of the 8 x 6 Mercia Overlap Pent Shed's design is its rustic timber cladding. The 7mm cladding uses FSC certified timber that has been dip-treated prior to delivery, a treatment that protects your parts during transit and assembly. Once assembled, take the next step in protecting your timber against the elements and keeping your 10-year anti-rot guarantee valid by adding a wood preservative such as Protek, which is available to order from elbec.

Solid sheet board is used throughout the floor of the 8 x 6 Mercia Overlap Pent Shed, supported with timber joists that lie beneath and offering great overall strength. This material is water resistant and is also used in the roof, covered by mineral roofing felt that keeps the elements at bay and gives the overall structure that classic garden shed look.

The pent roof design of this shed is angled to encourage rain to run away from your shed rather than linger and cause damage. Its shape is also perfect for anyone hoping to use the shed for storage purposes; upon entering the shed, users can enjoy the headroom at the front of the shed while the lowest point is conveniently at the back where items can be stored. 


Additional Information

Your shed will be delivered flat-packed with all the parts and fixtures needed to assemble your new garden building at home. We recommend allowing one or two days to do so, depending on your prior experience with similar DIY projects, and enlisting the help of an enthusiastic friend to help you put together your shed.

Please note that this shed is pre-treated with a water based timber treatment for protection during transit. In order to receive the full 10 year anti-rot guarantee on your shed, it is necessary that you treat the shed with a high quality, water-based, timber preservative prior to or shortly after construction. This will protect the timber on your shed from weathering, and its application will need to be repeated accordingly based on the manufacturer's instructions.

ALL DELIVERIES ARE DELIVERED TO KERBSIDE OR DRIVEWAY. All of our Mercia products are delivered flat packed other than fence panels (which are delivered fully constructed), direct to your home, and are supplied with a set of instructions to support assembly.

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.
