For robust, secure and attractive garden storage, choose the 8 x 6 Forest Shiplap Dip Treated Windowless Double Door Apex Wooden Shed (2.42m x 1.99m). This garden shed is part of Forest’s innovative shed range: The Better Shed. These modular sheds are easier to build, stronger and more versatile than standard wooden sheds, giving you a much ‘Better Shed’ than you had before.Intelligent Modular Design and Premium BuildThis 8×6 shed is expertly designed and built by Britain’s leading manufacturer of wooden sheds. Featuring an intelligent modular design, it is delivered to you in smaller sections of interchangeable panels, so you’ll find it much easier to assemble than other wooden sheds. What’s more, with extra timber and far more extensive 28mm shed framing, this garden shed isn’t just easier to assemble than other wooden sheds, it’s much, much stronger too.The walls are constructed from 12mm shiplap cladding, which is an incredible 40% thicker than regular wooden sheds! Thanks to the boards’ interlocking design and smooth-planed finish, this makes for an exceptionally robust, durable and stylish shed. Shiplap’s scalloped profile also ensures highly-effective rainwater runoff. Together with the strategically-placed cover strips, this helps the walls remain unbeatably weathertight.Extra-Thick Floor and Traditional Apex RoofThe extra-thick 14mm floor is constructed from pressure-treated wooden boards and fitted with pressure-treated bearers, which make a highly-effective barrier against ground moisture. Due to its exceptional thickness and premium quality, a Better Shed floor is perfectly equipped to house heavier tools and cope with regular footfall.Strengthened by a metal truss bracket, the roof is made from tough 8mm OSB and fitted with a premium mineral felt cover for complete weatherproof protection. Its traditional apex design, smooth-planed barge boards and diamond-shaped finial add the finishing touches to an exceptionally attractive appearance.A Very Secure ShedYou can gain storage-friendly access to this shed via ledged and braced double doors, which are fitted with tamper-proof hidden hinges plus a padlock-ready hasp & staple plate, giving you complete peace of mind that your valuable tools are secure (padlock not included).Once inside, you’ll find the high roofline allows for plenty of headroom, along with the chance to store taller items. The windowless design adds a further layer of security by deterring unwanted attention.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.
