The 8 x 6 Amaryllis Overlap Reverse Apex Shed from Shire has a number of great features that you will not normally find on a shed in this price bracket. It is a great investment for your garden because it offers a fantastic balance between affordability and quality. The 8 x 6 size should give you a generous amount of new storage space, perfect for gardening tools, outdoor furniture and anything else that needs sheltered storage. The reverse apex style means it is perfect for building against a fence or wall at the back of your garden while still enabling easy access. A generous ridge height of 2.27m (7ft 5in) means you will have plenty of headroom inside too.


The real selling point of the Amaryllis Shed is its 34mm x 34mm framing, which is around 20% thicker than the framing you will find on most sheds in this price range. This gives you a strong and durable building at the cost of an economical shed. An 11mm solid sheet board floor is robust enough for storing heavy items and for everyday foot traffic. A 9mm OSB roof provides a good level of weather protection and, when the supplied green mineral roofing felt is attached, the inside of your shed will be well sealed from the elements. The overlap cladding used on the Amaryllis enables the efficient run off of water and can move with the natural expansions and contractions of the timber without compromising the structure.

The Amaryllis has two fixed windows which allow in plenty of natural light. These are glazed in shatterproof styrene, a safer alternative to traditional glass that is perfect if you have a busy garden with pets or young children. A hinged single door allows easy access to your shed and you can choose at the time of assembly whether you want the door to be on the left or right hand side of the windows – you can choose which way round best suits your garden.

The Amaryllis is dip treated for protection during manufacture and transit. With our dip treated products, you get a 10 year anti-rot guarantee. To ensure your guarantee is valid, you must follow all of the manufacturer’s assembly and care instructions, which will include guidelines for treatment and periodic re-treatment of the shed. It is recommended that you apply a quality water-based product that adds waterproofing. Many manufacturer’s recommend Protek wood treatments – the range is available to purchase from elbec for a great price.

The estimated delivery lead time for this product is identified on the product page above. Lead times are in working days (Monday - Friday) excludes Bank Holidays. These estimated lead times are provided by the manufacturers and are not guaranteed - due to fluctuation in demand - but are provided in good faith and are representative of delivery at that 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.
