Garden owners aiming to create storage space within the confines of their garden often find the 8 x 8 Mercia Overlap Shed an appealing choice, thanks to the fantastic value offered in its capable interior space and high quality timber construction. With this popular shed, Mercia has created a straightforward yet very reliable garden shed that can store all manner of items outside the house. Read on to explore the features of this shed in more detail.


Every time owners use their 8 x 8 Mercia Overlap Shed, they will inevitably appreciate the set of double doors included in this shed. These offer easier access than a single door, which is particularly useful for many of the items commonly stored in garden sheds, from sun loungers to lawnmowers. A ledged construction gives these doors plenty of strength, ensuring you can keep using them for many years and easily transform your shed into a secure garden building with the addition of a lock. Once inside, owners of most heights can stand up straight thanks to a ridge height of 6'9", which makes using the shed a more leisurely experience.

A huge part of what gives the 8 x 8 Mercia Overlap Shed its rustic charm is the 7mm timber cladding used throughout its walls, which makes use of an overlapped structure. This angling of the timber is very effective at diverting rainfall away from the interior, as is the solid sheet board apex roof with protective felt. The timber - which is FSC certified and only sourced from sustainable forests - has received a dip-treatment for adequate resistance to damp that is needed while the shed is in transit and waiting to be assembled. Internal 28mm x 28mm framing is made from the same excellent timber, and will keep your garden building structurally stable well into the future.

At elbec, we always recommend further treatment for external dip-treated timber once your shed is erected, ideally in the form of a high-quality wood preservative like that provided by the Protek range. 

Additional Information

The 8 x 8 Mercia Overlap Shed will arrive flat-packed and ready for you to assemble in your own garden. Some prior experience in practical projects will certainly be of use, but Mercia fortunately provides a clear and detailed instruction manual with your shed. It is reasonable to expect the assembly process to take a day or two, depending on your familiarity with these types of DIY projects, and elbec strongly recommends enlisting the help of a friend.

Mercia offers an amazing 10-year anti-rot guarantee on this shed, which ought to give any owner the assurance they need of the timber in this shed's high quality and durability. Make sure to read the care instructions outlined by the manufacturer to be certain you can use the coverage if needed. A great first step in doing so is using a high-quality wood preservative, available for purchase with your order.
