This 8 x 6 Overlap Apex Double Door shed with windows is made with UK grown timber, pressure treated for protection against rot. The overlap construction aids water runoff and allows for the natural movement of timber. The windows can be positioned on either the right-hand side or the left-hand side depth, you can decide at the time of assembly.  Durable PET glazing is used for the windows so they will not shatter or become yellow. A double Z-frame is used to add strength to the double doors, and the hasp and staple fitting provides space for a padlock. Solid timber is used for the floor to support storage of heavy equipment, and the four windows and apex roof allow plenty of light and headroom, perfect for storing of taller items.

This Forest shed's modular design is made with smaller walls panels making handling and assembly easier.  All Forest modular design sheds use 14mm pressure treated boarded floor as standard for additional strength. We need to add that the boarded floor is 30% thicker than standard OSB floors supplied generally with other overlap sheds, this type of floor is suitable for storing heavier garden items. The strength of any shed lies in the amount of timber used in its manufacture, this Forest sheds is supported with 30% more framing and the addition of metal roof truss brackets, giving this shed its simple yet strong design.  

These features along with its stylish apex roof, decorative final, smooth planed barge boards, pressure treated timber for a 15 year anti-rot guarantee, provided the product care instructions are followed and FSC approved timber make it the perfect storage unit. This shed is also available in other sizes.

Hidden and secure door hinges are used for safety, supported by a Z-frame structure for added strength and complete with a plate hasp and staple ready for you to just add your own padlock. The roof is layered with a weatherproof 'black sand' sheet which is both durable and attractive.

The shed is supplied flat packed for ease of handling and assembly. All fittings and felt are included in the price with clear, easy to follow instructions. All Forest Garden sheds are self-assembled with step by step guides, but an assembly option is available if needed.

Additional Details about your Order
The timber used has been pressure treated, where anti-rot and preservation solutions are forced into the structure of the timber. You may notice a slight green tint from the treatment, but this will fade over time. This type of treatment leaves a natural wood finish and comes with a 15 year anti-rot guarantee from Forest.
