            If you are looking to add convenient storage to your garden at a low cost, or you want to replace an existing garden shed with a great value, reliable, apex roof shed, the 8 x 6 Shire Pressure Treated Value Overlap Shed could be perfect for you. This is the largest size currently available in the Shire Value range of sheds, so it provides you with plenty of additional storage. It does, however, still have a relatively compact footprint, ensuring its suitability for a wide range of garden sizes. This version is an upgrade on the standard, dip treated version. Pressure treatment ensures an unbeatable level of protection for the timber from rot and will ensure your shed will last longer than a dip treated equivalent (provided the manufacturer’s care instructions are followed).

            Constructed to a simple design from high quality timber, this fantastic garden shed is available at a low price while still providing great quality. It is fantastic if you have outgrown your existing storage space or simply need to provide sheltered storage to a range of garden items, such as outdoor furniture, tools, gardening equipment or kid’s toys.

            This 8 x 6 overlap shed is better than the average overlap shed you may see sold elsewhere. Though it may be low in price, it boasts a number of features that show its quality. The key difference between the Shire Value Range of sheds and similar products is that it has supporting rails top and bottom on the inside of each wall, not just on the top like some others on the market. It also has a 34mm framework, which is 20% thicker than anything at this price level and ensures a much sturdier build that will last for years to come.


            The real selling point of the Shire Value Overlap Shed is its 34mm framing. This gives the shed a strength and stability that is unmatched by similar products in this price bracket. The shed’s overlap construction promotes the efficient run off of water, which will help to keep the shed dry inside. However, an appropriate waterproofing treatment should still be used to ensure your shed’s contents remain fully protected from the elements and to ensure your shed will last. The door is robust and is ledged, as well as featuring a hasp and staple for security. An 8mm Oriented Strand Board (OSB) roof ensures good weather resistance. Plus, with roofing felt provided with your purchase, this further adds to the level of protection. The shed floor is also 10mm OSB which should be strong enough to withstand whatever it is you need to store inside. Finally, the shed is supplied with two fixed windows glazed with shatterproof styrene, allowing in natural light.

            About the Timber

            You will be impressed by Shire's use of natural products and their environmental credentials. A high quality timber product starts with high quality timber, so it is important to know exactly what timber is being used for your shed. The most commonly used timber for garden buildings is pine (pinus) as this is widely available for a very cheap price, however all of Shire's garden buildings are constructed using high quality spruce (picea) and is sourced from Scandinavia under strict FSC guidance. Spruce is more durable than pine and provides a higher quality finish. This timber is slow grown unlike fast grown British and Eastern Europe's timber, and being slow grown means a tighter grain, less sap and with far fewer knots. The timber used on Shire's range is therefore a more durable timber that will last much longer than other timbers. Spruce is therefore the timber of choice for companies such as Shire who always look to produce the best garden building.

            About Shire

            Established in 1945, Shire are the country's leading, and one of the oldest established, manufacturers of garden buildings. Shire benefit from being adjacent to the Port of Wisbech, through which Shire discharge timber into their warehouses. Shire is the proud manufacturer of the largest timber garden building range produced in the UK. At peak times they produce thousands of buildings a week. Their range includes Garden Sheds, Log Cabins, Eco Homes, Home Offices, Sheds, Workshops, Summerhouses, Playhouses, Arbours, Storage units and Pet houses. Their production facilities cover some 23 acres and include huge undercover stock holding facilities for many of their ranges, an advanced high speed timber planing mill, modern well equipped joinery production facility and semi-automated production lines. All Shire garden buildings are manufactured in the UK using the finest spruce timber, imported directly and machined through the most up to date machines to ensure the best quality and best value for money products in the UK.

            Additional Details about your Order

            This shed is pressure treated. Pressure treatment is almost colourless, except for a light green tint caused by the copper content in the preservative. In the course of time, the treatment greys, but this does not affect the quality. Pressure treatment provides unrivalled longevity for your shed. However, you should make sure to follow all of the manufacturer's care instructions to make sure your shed lasts and its guarantee remains valid. Many customers like to personalise their sheds by adding an exterior wood treatment which also adds additional protection to the timber and a splash of colour. Shire recommends Protek Royal Exterior wood finish, available from elbec in many different colours. This is also a great way to refresh the look of your shed over time.

            Upon Delivery
            Delivery is made by Shire the manufacturer. Delivery of this item is typically made by a 17 ton flat-bed (similar size to a council refuse lorry). Delivery is typically between 7am and 7pm. The delivery drivers are only insured to deliver to kerb side or driveway. We would not risk damaging your property whilst delivering a product. Unfortunately we will not be able to go through your property. Deliveries are hand-balled off by the driver.

            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.

            Installation option
            If you are choosing the installation option after placing your order you’ll be contacted within 5 working days by Shire the manufacturer either by a text message or automated telephone message (the latter if a mobile number is not supplied). This message will supply you with the name of the website to go on to where you will be required to accept the terms and conditions for assembly. Any delay in accepting these terms and conditions may affect your timescale. Once you have accepted these terms and conditions you will be contacted during the timescale with a date for the delivery/assembly of your order. The installation option will extend your lead time by up to 15-25 working days. This may take longer during seasonal periods. Please be aware that the installation team will require full access to your garden, 18" clearance all around the building and a firm and level base. Shire's installation team will not bring a building through your home as they are not covered by insurance to enter a customer’s home.


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