Description

The 8x12 Delamere is a premium garden shed offering excellent garden workshop space and outdoor storage. The Delamere is a dip-treated, shiplap shed which is part of Forest Garden's The Better Shed range offering a stronger build and better features than other wooden sheds.

Expertly designed and built by one of the UK's leading shed manufacturers, The Better Shed's intelligent modular design means it is delivered in smaller sections, making it far easier to assemble than other garden sheds. This modular design also results in more extensive 28mm shed framing, ensuring an incredibly robust structure and far greater resistance to warping.

The Delamere's walls are constructed from 12mm shiplap cladding. Shiplap is a constructed using interlocking tongue and groove boards which offer a tight, weather-resistant finish with great strength and warp-resistance than overlap construction. Wherever the panels join together, cover strips are used to ensure the 8x12 shed remains completely weathertight. Shiplap also features a scallop which aids water run-off and provides an attractive finish. Where the panels join together, cover strips are used to ensure the structure remains weathertight.

A thick 14mm pressure-treated timber boarded floor with pressure-treated bearers not only provides a long-lasting, effective barrier against ground moisture, it allows for the storage of heavier tools and machinery too. The 8mm apex roof is made from solid sheet, allows excellent rainwater runoff, and comes with a high-quality mineral felt covering to keep the interior dry. It also includes a metal truss bracket for added strength.

Storage-friendly access to the 8x12 shed is gained via wide double doors, which include double-Z framing to prevent them from dropping. Tamper-proof hidden hinges and a hasp and staple plate, designed for a padlock (padlock not included), help keep stored items safe.

Once inside, high eaves offer plenty of headroom and the opportunity to store taller items, while 6 PET-glazed windows allow an abundance of natural light. These windows are made from recycled materials, virtually shatterproof and will never discolour or become brittle. They can be fitted in different positions on the shed, offering even more versatile garden storage.

All of the timber is FSC®-certified, which is the only wood certification scheme endorsed by the major environmental charities. Fixtures, fittings and clear instructions are included for a simple assembly, although a professional installation service is available to purchase as an optional upgrade.

This wooden shed is supplied dip-treated and should be coated in a quality wood preservative, annually, in order to maintain its handsome appearance and validate the excellent 10-year anti-rot guarantee.

Delivery is free to most UK addresses.

Shed Base Options

Wooden Shed Base

Wooden Shed Base Kit

As an alternative to laying slabs or concrete, this shed base is a faster, more cost effective DIY solution.

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 241.6cm (w) x 354cm (d)

Plastic Shed Base

Plastic Shed Base Kit

Quick and simple to install, the 12x8 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 50mm. This pack contains 40 squares and heavy-duty, commercially-graded weed membrane.
