Description

The 8 x 8 Corner Shed from Shire is perfect for turning an otherwise unused or awkward corner of your garden into valuable extra space for storage or work. Specially designed to be the perfect fit for any garden corner, you can rest assured that a corner shed will allow you to make the most of your available outdoor space. The 8 x 8 gives you that little extra space which adds extra versatility to your shed. It also still has a relatively compact footprint and is therefore suitable for almost any size of garden. Whether you have large items in need of a home, your existing storage spaces are full to bursting, or if you would like a place that is big enough for a home workshop, look no further than the Shire Corner Shed.

Features

The Shire Corner Shed has a number of features that show its quality. It is designed to fit snugly in almost any garden corner without wasting any of your outdoor space. It gets its strength from robust 34mm x 34mm framework, ensuring a sturdy shed that will stand up to the test of time. Further stability and durability is added by its walls, which are constructed from 12mm thick shiplap tongue and groove boarding. This not only ensures a robust construction, but also makes sure the interior is nicely sealed away from the elements. The quality of the Shire Corner is really shown by its tongue and groove floor and durable OSB roof. This not only ensures that you have a nicely weatherproof roof and a robust floor capable of withstanding heavy loads, but you are given extra protection against rot and damp. You will struggle to find quality tongue and groove flooring on most sheds in this price bracket.

The Shire Corner also features two opening windows. These allow in plenty of natural light as well as cool air when opened, especially useful in the warmer months. This also makes the interior a pleasant place to spend your time and gives you the flexibility to use it as a workshop. The windows are properly mortised and tenoned and have a unique, profiled lip that covers the opening in the panel, making the shed even more weather resistant. They are glazed in horticultural glass for long lasting clarity. The wide opening double doors allow easy access to your shed and make taking even the largest items in and out a breeze. These doors are ledged and feature a padbolt for extra strength and security (padlock not supplied.) This fantastic shed is protected by a 10 year anti-rot guarantee, so you can be certain you are purchasing a shed that will last.

About the Timber

You will be impressed by Shire's use of natural products and their environmental credentials. A high quality timber shed starts with high quality timber, so it is important to know exactly what timber is being used. 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 Siberia and 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, being slow grown timber means a tighter grain, less sap and with far fewer knots. The timber used on Shire's products 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.

This shed supplied pre-treated with a base coat to both sides in a golden brown water based industrial product (colour can vary from the picture shown). Image shown is the 8 x 8 Corner Shed which has been stained. Shire recommends that you apply a water based top coat. This will protect the timber from weathering on your shed making it last longer and will need to be repeated accordingly in relation to the manufacturer's instructions. 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 or personalise it to your liking.

"Excellent sales co-ordination and delivery to me in Cornwall.The timber components were all machined OK and self assembly went smoothly.I recommend coach bolting the floor and roof sections together for a sturdy joint.Coating the timber prior to assembly also is desirable and 6 months later and with some hot sunny days the timber construction has coped with shrinkage with no visible cracks or water ingress."

"Shire corner shed: Had my shed delivered by a friendly driver who helped off load it all. I used my wood preserver spraying both sides of each panel. Next day a friend helped me erect the shed, which took us the whole day. I'm glad I did my home work as the shed stands proud in my garden, what a great looking shed...easy to construct...excellent quality. "
