Description

The Windowless 8x6 Kielder Shed is an overlap, dip-treated apex shed and is part of The Better Shed range from Forest Garden. This premium wooden shed features a clever modular design, which makes for easier assembly and a stronger garden storage shed.

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 Kielder's walls are constructed from 7mm overlap cladding, which allows for the natural movement of the timber throughout the changing seasons and aids efficient rainwater run-off. Wherever the panels join together, cover strips are used to ensure the structure remains completely weathertight.

A 14mm pressure-treated solid timber floor with 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 OSB apex roof features a sturdy metal truss bracket, for extra strength, and is finished with felt, barge boards and a finial.

Access to the shed is gained via a single door, which can be hung with a left or right-hand opening, to suit the garden's orientation, and includes double-Z framing to prevent the door from dropping. Tamper-proof hidden hinges and a hasp and staple plate, designed for a padlock (padlock not included), help keep stored items safe, while the windowless design acts as an additional security measure. Once inside, high eaves offer plenty of headroom and make it easy to store taller items.

All of the timber is FSC®-certified, which is the only wood certification scheme endorsed by the major environmental charities. Not only robust, weatherproof and ethical, this garden shed's traditional design, smooth-planed barge boards and finial result in an incredibly attractive appearance.

Fixtures, fittings and clear instructions are included for a simple assembly, although a professional installation service is available to purchase as an optional upgrade. A pressure-treated shed base can be purchased as an optional extra too, as can a lean-to kit for extra sheltered storage space. Please be advised that this lean-to kit is pressure-treated for a longer life and so is a different shade of timber to the shed.

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.

  • Excellent 10-year anti-rot guarantee

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 236cm (w) x 182.6cm (d)

 

 

 

Plastic Shed Base

Plastic Shed Base Kit

Quick and simple to install, the 8x6 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.
