The 8 x 6 Mercia Shiplap Potting Shed with Single Door is perfect for those who want to start home growing at an affordable price. The built in shelf allows plants to recieve plenty of sunlight whilst still be protected from the elements behind the fixed styrene windows. The large internal size of the potting shed means that there's plenty of room left for storage of your garden items! 

Walls - The walls of the shed are constructed from high quality, FSC certified timber. It uses specially designed tongue and groove cladding to give you a shed that is not just durable but also a shed that looks great in your garden. Also our planed tongue and groove shiplap cladding design closes the pores and together with its curved profile promotes the run off of water making the shed more water resistant.

Doors - The shed door is braced and ledged to give you a strong durable door and as with the walls is made from high quality FSC certified tongue and groove cladding. Door can be positioned either on the right hand side or left hand side.

Roof and Floor - The roof and floor of the shed are constructed from high quality tongue and groove cladding, this ensures the building is solid and prevents water leaking into the shed. This is a better quality material than the solid sheet board used on the shiplap and overlap ranges.

Windows - All shed windows are glazed with environmentally friendly styrene which is a safer alternative to traditional glass. The windows allow plenty of light to flood into the shed and can be fitted to either side.  

Full assembly instructions are provided with the potting shed Shed and with all the fittings in the box as standard you will be amazed at how simple your shed is to install.

Please note All our sheds are pre-treated with a water based timber treatment for protection during transit. In order to receive the full 10 year anti-rot guarantee on your shed, it is necessary that you treat the shed with a high quality, water-based, timber preservative prior to or shortly after construction. This will protect the timber from weathering on your shed and will need to be repeated accordingly in relation to manufacturer's instructions.
