This 8 x 6 Mercia Shiplap Shed with Double Doors is an affordable garden shed that makes some excellent choices in its construction to give the owner a reliable and long-lasting storage space for all kinds of items they would prefer to keep out of the home, from garden tools to patio furniture. For a reasonably priced garden building with all the useful features you expect to have from a traditional garden shed, it is hard to find a model that does the job better than this 8 x 6 Mercia Shiplap Shed with Double Doors. The 8 x 6 is not the smallest shed elbec sells, yet is still perfect for more confined garden spaces.


Building on the tried and tested base of the traditional apex roof garden shed, the 8 x 6 Mercia Shiplap Shed with Double Doors has some very handy features that make using your shed a much more pleasant experience. For example, a set of double doors widens the entrance of your shed and allows for easier transportation of items like sun loungers or lawn mowers. This door is ledged for a good degree of strength, and can be closed when not in use with a simple 'turn button' style catch.

Two fixed windows give the interior of this shed some much-needed clarity when stowing or searching for items. These feature a tough styrene glazing that is virtually shatter-proof, making it far safer than many types of glass in a bustling garden where damage by balls or frisbees can occur.

One of the unique construction elements that makes the 8 x 6 Mercia Shiplap Shed with Double Doors stand out among competitors within this price range is its 12mm timber wall cladding. A tongue and groove structure means that each timber board fits tightly together and forms an excellent barrier to the elements. Combined with a high-quality wood preservative, such as those found in the Protek range, this shed gives owners a level of protection against wet weather that is hard to find in many timber sheds.

An internal frame using 28mm x 28mm timber is used throughout and provides the shed with the strength needed for a very stable structure. Rugged 8mm solid sheet board is used in both the roof and floor, with a good level of resistance to rot and damp.

Additional Information

Upon delivery, you will need to assemble your 8 x 6 Mercia Shiplap Shed with Double Sheds at home with the help of an extra pair of hands. All parts and fixtures needed to put your shed together are included, and elbec generally advises that the shed takes one or two days to complete. A clear and detailed instruction manual is included with the order.

Thanks to the timber's pressure treatment, your shed will have a significant degree of protection from the elements from the moment it is complete. However, we still recommend applying a wood preservative such as Protek to get the most out of your shed over the coming years. Make sure you read the care instructions from the manufacturer to ensure you receive the full coverage provided by the excellent 15-year anti-rot guarantee.

"Very impressed
We bought an 8x6 shed delivery was on time, the driver was very polite and put the sections where we asked him to, obviously wasn't to out of his way. Construction of the shed was straight forward for my husband and son-in-law but they are very DIY experts. Only critism is the floor very basis I think for what we paid, but we improved that. On the whole very pleased with it and would order from these guys again.

"VERY GOOD SERVICE: Recently retired
Very good service, prompt delivery and the driver was very helpful. The shed was exactly as described and now sits in the corner of our Garden where planned and would have no hesitation in recommending Elbec to anyone.

"Very pleased: Having researched sheds for months and read horror stories of terrible customer service and sheds that wouldn't hold up against a sneeze, it was a relief to read such good reviews about Elbec. Very pleased to report they lived up to the reviews! I ordered late Thursday night and was given the option of a Monday delivery. The shed turned up about 11am on the Monday (I didn't get the promised phone call about 30 mins before but I can totally live with that!).
My brother is a builder so I roped him into assembling it today. He's got a broken wrist but still managed it in about 7 hours, single-handedly (quite literally!). He said it was more complicated than advertised but a decent shed. He preferred to use his own, longer screws and said the roof could've done with being a little bigger, but for my purposes (bikes, lawnmower, garden furniture), it's absolutely fine. Personally, I'm delighted with it - it looks great and I'm relieved Elbec lived up to the high praise. Many thanks."
