If you are looking for a spacious storage solution for your garden that also offers quality and value for money, the 8 x 6 Shiplap Shed from Forest could be ideal. Constructed from quality materials with a 10 year anti-rot guarantee, you can be certain you will receive value for money as your shed lasts for years to come. The timber is cut into shiplap tongue and groove panels. This means that each board fits together and forms a seal which offers fantastic protection from the elements for items stored inside. This is fitted onto a robust 28mm framing which adds to the fantastic strength of the shed, further enforced by thick roof battens. All this gives peace of mind that you have excellent protection from sun, wind and rain as well as a shed that will last and last.

The Forest 8 x 6 Shiplap Apex Garden Shed has a “modular” design. Modular sheds have many advantages. It means that the wall panels of the shed are manufactured in smaller parts, making handling and assembly easier as well as increasing the overall strength of the building. All Forest modular design sheds come as standard with a 12mm boarded floor for additional strength and a stronger roof support design with metal bracing.

The attractive apex roof is constructed from a strong sheet board (OSB) which is designed to stand up to the worst of the British weather. It is supplied with black sand roofing felt which provides an additional layer of protection which helps prevent damp, rot and water ingress. A timber boarded floor is another quality feature that ensures you can store heavy loads inside your shed. Access is through a sturdy ‘Z’ braced door which can be secured shut using the plate hasp and staple and a padlock (padlock not supplied). A virtually unbreakable polycarbonate window allows in natural light and is fixed with security screws for additional security.

With an eaves height that is around 6 inches higher than other sheds of this size and in this price bracket, you will be impressed by how spacious the inside is. The shed is designed to be straightforward to construct, with comprehensive instructions included. However, you can choose to have our professional team of fitters construct your shed if you prefer. Finally, an attractive, smooth planed finial and barge boards complete the shed and ensure it will look great in your garden.

Treating your building

The timber is dip treated and guaranteed against rot for 10 years, provided that the shed is isolated from ground contact and is regularly retreated with timber preservative. Many manufacturers recommend Protek Paint, available to purchase from elbec in over 50 different shades.
