Available in a range of designs and sizes, Forest 4Life™ Overlap Pressure Treated Sheds are beautifully handcrafted here, in Great Britain. Packed full of premium features, they are the best range of overlap sheds Forest has ever made. This particular model is the 8×6 Apex Shed (2.43m x 1.99m), making it perfectly suited to general-purpose storage in most sizes of garden.Modular Design, Pressure-Treated Wood and 4Life™ GuaranteeThis garden shed is expertly designed and built by Britain’s leading manufacturer of wooden sheds. Pressure treated and supplied with an extraordinary 25-year anti-rot guarantee, which is the longest guarantee on the market, the wood will never need retreating, sparing you the inconvenience of costly, time-consuming maintenance and providing you with an unbeatably durable shed. You’ll only ever need one shed with a 4Life™ Shed!Featuring an intelligent modular design, this 8×6 shed is delivered to you in smaller sections of interchangeable panels, so you’ll find it much easier to assemble than other wooden sheds. This modular design also allows you greater flexibility with door and window placements, helping you customise the shed to your exact requirements. What’s more, with 30% more framing, this garden shed isn’t just easier to assemble and more versatile than other wooden sheds, it’s far stronger too.Smart Overlap Walls, Extra-Thick Floor and Traditional Apex RoofThe walls are constructed from 7mm overlap cladding, which allows for the natural movement of the timber over the changing seasons and ensures excellent rainwater runoff. These overlap boards are straight cut, giving them a much smarter finish than standard overlap cladding.The extra-thick 14mm solid wood floor is 40% thicker than standard shed flooring! It is supported by pressure-treated bearers, which provide a further layer of protection against rot-causing ground moisture. Reinforced by a metal truss bracket, the roof is built from tough 8mm OSB and fitted with a green mineral-felt cover for complete weatherproof protection. It comes with a traditional apex design, smooth-planed barge boards and diamond-shaped finial, nicely rounding off the shed’s exceptionally attractive appearance.Secure Door and Shatterproof GlazingYou can access this shed via a single door, which can be installed in different positions, and hung for a left or right-hand opening – the choice is yours. Ledged and braced for extra strength and to prevent dropping/ movement, this door is fitted with hidden security hinges plus a padlock-ready hasp & staple plate, giving you peace of mind that your valuable tools are safe (padlock not included).Once inside, you’ll find the high roofline allows plenty of headroom, along with the chance to store taller items. The 2 PET-glazed windows provide an abundance of natural light – perfect if you’re storing important equipment or working on DIY projects. Far more secure than conventional glass, these windows are completely shatterproof, made from recycled materials, and will neither discolour nor fade over time. You can instal them in a variety of positions – again, the choice is yours. (Please see the floor plan for further details.)Forest’s White Glove Delivery ServiceFree delivery is available to most UK postcodes using Forest’s White Glove Service.

The wooden shed base consists of a framework that is made from UC4 incised timber which has been pressure treated. The pressure treatment ensures that the framework is robust and is guaranteed to resist rot for an impressive 15 years. Size of base: 7.5cm (h) x 236cm (w) x 182.6cm (d) Plastic Shed Base Kit Quick and simple to install, the 8×6 plastic shed base kit is ideal for avoiding the hassle of laying slabs or concrete when preparing a base for a new shed. Its interlocking design makes it easy to put together and, though lightweight, it provides a very strong and durable base for the shed. Made from 100% recycled plastic, this shed base is eco-friendly. Also, it can be reused if the shed is repositioned. The base allows for ventilation and drainage under the shed, helping to keep the shed floor dry. To install the base, simply interlock the square grids together and lay onto a firm, level area of ground. We recommend using 15kg of 10mm pea gravel per square (gravel not included). Each square is 500 x 500 x 40mm. This pack contains 20 squares and heavy-duty, commercially-graded weed membrane. Please be advised that we do not assemble plastic shed bases as part of our installation service. You must prepare the base yourself in advance of the installers’ visit.
