  • 8 x 6 Shire Overlap Pent Shed£378.00


            The 8 x 6 Overlap Pent Shed from Shire is perfect if you want a convenient and reliable storage space to your garden at a low cost. It is a shed designed for more awkwardly shaped gardens with its door in the longer side – this makes it perfect for putting in the corner of the long, narrow gardens that are so common in the UK. It is worth mentioning that the window and door can be swapped, creating a better arrangement for your garden. 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 ideal if you have outgrown your existing storage space or simply need to provide sheltered storage for a range of garden items, such as outdoor furniture, tools or gardening equipment.

            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. What sets it apart is its 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.


            Guarantee - 10-year anti-rot

            Frame - 34mm x 34mm

            Windows -  1 fixed window (2 panes)

            Doors - single door

            Handle - hasp and staple

            Treatment - dip treated (application of preservative and waterproof coat required)

            Make the Most of Your Wooden Shed:

            The real selling point of this 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. The door is robust and is ledged, as well as featuring a hasp and staple (padlock not supplied) for security. An 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 OSB which should be strong enough for many garden tools to store inside. A fixed acrylic window will allow in light, making finding things inside during the day easier.

            About Your Order:

            The Shire pent shed is a British-made garden building made from FSC® certified timber. You will get a low-carbon footprint wooden shed made from ethically sourced materials. The practical design makes it straightforward to assemble. It comes with a 10-year anti-rot guarantee and a 12-month manufacturer's warranty. 

            Superior fixings, boards which attach to a solid internal frame makes this an hard-wearing and sturdy shed. The shed is flat-packed for easy handling and assembly.

            Please note: Images may depict furnishings and accessories; these are for illustration purposes only and are not included with your order. 

            Wooden Shed Aftercare:

            The shed has timbers that have a dip-treated base coat to protect them during transit. You must apply a preservative and waterproofing topcoat immediately after installation. Using the treatment after installation, followed by consistent annual treatment of the wooden shed, will maintain the high-quality finish and is a requirement of the 10-year anti-rot guarantee. A 1-year manufacturer's warranty is included as standard.

            To treat the shed, elbec recommends Protek wood treatment.  Browse our Protek Royal Exterior Wood Finish Paint range to find the best paint colour to add your personalised finish.  In the options section, we’ve included popular colours and a Wood Preserver+ for use underneath your colour choice.

            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.

            By Anonymous on 31st May 2024
            "The shed is part of the low-priced range so I was not expecting luxury top-notch quality. The shed was all there and it makes a serviceable outside storage space. It comes with a Brenton bolt but the screws provided for fixing this and the hinges are not particularly secure compared with nuts and bolts. The wood used is reasonably weatherproof but there were many 'ventilation' holes where knots in the wood had fallen out leaving numerous holes. The sloping roof supports did not fit perfectly leaving gaps. Neither did the door. All in all, it is not perfect but is reasonable value for money."
