Our 8ft x 8ft Premium Dutch Barn Shed is a unique storage solution that suits any garden type. The spacious interior is ideal for storing all garden essentials and outdoor accessories. The stylish Dutch Barn roof provides this shed with a generous roof height. Perfect for storing tall items such as ladders and strimmers. The double doors of this shed make accessing and storing your items easy. Making this the ideal garden building for all your storage needs.  This is the smaller of the Dutch Barn sheds from Mercia, if you got lots of items to store you may wish to consider the 10ftx8ft size.

This shed is manufactured here in the UK, using ethically sourced FSC® certified timber. The walls of this shed are robust, strong and weather resistant. As they are manufactured using premium interlocking shiplap tongue and groove boards. The shiplap profile encourages rainwater to run away from the building to avoid any build-ups. Preventing the timber of your garden shed from becoming damaged. Heavy-duty tongue and groove boards also form the roof and floor of this building. The interlocking boards produce a strong and hard-wearing finish. Ideal for withstanding the pressures of daily use and the storing of heavier items.

Featuring an opening styrene glazed window, this shed fills with light. Provide a well-ventilated and welcoming space. Ideal if you are planning to use the space as a functioning workshop or hobby room.

Robust fixtures and fittings are all supplied as standard with this garden shed. Alongside our detailed instructions and manufacturer's recommendations, to ensure a stress-free assembly. 

Please note: some images may show the shed decorated with accessories/furnishings that are for display purposes only and they are not included with your purchase. They may also show more windows than are supplied with the size of shed you select. Please refer to the specification table for the number of windows supplied with this 8 x 8 Mercia Barn shed. 

Though this product is dip-treated and comes with a 10-year anti-rot guarantee, this treatment only covers the item for transport purposes.   We want you to enjoy your new garden shed for many years to come, and in order to do so, we recommend that you treat your shed as soon as possible after installation with a preservative and waterproofing top coat to ensure it is protected from the elements. With consistent annual treatment, this shed will maintain its high-quality finish and also retain the 10-year anti-rot guarantee. Then your guarantee will be good to go! The Mercia 8 x 8 Mercia Premium Shiplap T&G Dutch Barn Shed also includes a 1-year manufacturer’s guarantee as standard.

You will also be notified at this time if your area incurs a surcharge or delivery is not covered in your area.

Prior to Delivery

On the morning of your delivery date, you'll be sent an update by text with an estimated 2-hour delivery slot (this update can only be provided where a mobile number has been supplied on the billing address section at the time of checkout) together with a link to the manufacturer delivery portal where you'll be able to track your order.

Please note: Mercia Metal Sheds ONLY - your order is delivered by a courier you will not be notified prior to the delivery. If you are not in on the day of the delivery you will be carded and asked to contact the courier to arrange a new mutual delivery date. The estimated delivery lead time for Mercia's Metal sheds is identified on the product for the metal shed. Lead times are on working days (Monday - Friday) excludes Bank Holidays.

Upon Delivery

Your order is delivered either kerbside or driveway and will be delivered on either a 3.5T, 7.5T or 18T Lorry. Unfortunately due to health and safety and insurance liabilities the driver will not be able to take your goods around to the back of your property but may upon request place the product at the side of the house if there are no access or restriction issues. We would not risk damaging your property whilst delivering a product to an unsafe location. Unfortunately, we will not be able to go through your property.

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.


Orders with Assembly 

The lead time for our installation option is around 12 weeks from the date of order. With the installation option, the majority of orders will have their delivery and installation on separate days; there will be a small number of orders which will have delivery and installation on the same day. You will be advised by the manufacturer's installation team which category your order falls into.

Depending on the installation option for your order, you will be contacted within the delivery timescale and given a date for either delivery/assembly on the same date or a separate date for delivery and assembly.
