About this product
The Overlap Dip Treated 8x6 Apex Garden Shed from Forest is a great storage solution for all types of gardening equipment and the two fixed polycarbonate glazed windows let in plenty of light. The door of this shed can be hung either side of the opening and has been braced with strong double Z framing to give it extra strength. The overlapping boards also aid rain water run-off. Made in the UK with FSC certified timber from sustainable sources.
Wooden sheds, like this one, come supplied with a floor but still need to be built on a strong, level base such as concrete, paving slabs or tarmac. This base is not supplied. Do not place directly onto a base of grass, sand, earth etc. As natural movement will affect stability, reduce lifespan, cause the door(s) to warp and encourage rot.
The two windows are fitted with security screws that don't come unscrewed once fixed giving added security. They are glazed using shatter-proof polycarbonate glazing, which will not become yellow or brittle over time.
The door features a strong Z frame to give it added strength and the hidden hinges provide extra security for the shed. The door can also be secured with an additional padlock (not included) through the hasp and staple fastening.

I am very happy with my new garden shed
Good quality shed and finishes my garden off great also very easy to put up and comes with everything you need and delivered quite quickly. Thanks
Shed quality poor (splits in wood and loose nails). Very disappointed and had to arrange a return collection.
Avoid At All Costs
My decision to purchase this shed was down to it’s “Sturdy door braced with double Z framing for added strength and security” due to what I would be storing in the shed, however the door may be secure but the rest of the shed was anything but strong. Flimsy and poor quality materials used, very poor construction resulting in repairs needing to be carried out before assembly, panels warping such that I could get my arm through the gap. I expected a lot better quality for the price paid.
Sorry for the confusion - this Forest Wooden 8 x 6ft Overlap Apex Shed measures H 236 cm, W 186 cm, D 241 cm and the base required is indeed D 240.5 cm, W 186.1 cm.
Thank you for using Argos Q&A.

Christine, good afternoon. This shed comes with a floor but not a separate base. The article number supplied with a separate base is 505/4161. Yes there is an assembly option for this shed and shed with base, for these please view articles 503/7023 and 506/1147.

Hi , this shed comes with a wooden floor however you would need to supply your own solid base for the floor to sit on
i hope you find this useful

The small print
All sheds need to be placed and secured on a base; this can be concrete, patio slabs or wood. Putting your shed directly on the ground wouldn't be safe and would decrease the lifespan of your shed.
