The Shire Overlap Garden Shed 12x8 is part of a range of apex roof sheds made from kiln-dried timber, making them much more resistant to warping.

They feature 34x34mm thickness framing that is usually reserved for more expensive tongue and groove buildings.

Each of these Overlap sheds have a higher eaves height when compared to the equivalent size, regular overlap buildings allowing more headroom inside the shed.

This shed also features windowed side panels that can be placed on either side of the building to best suit the position of the shed in your garden.

The glazing is safety styrene to the fixed windows. The roof and floor are formed from a solid sheet boarding, again on a 34x34mm framing.

The wall panels are constructed of overlap cladding and supplied in modular sections. The main advantage of a modular design is that each individual panel should be small enough (in one or both dimensions) to be carried by one person. As a concequence the individual boards may not line up perfectly with those on adjacent panels, due to the variences in the natural timber cladding.

Access is provided by a handy wide double door, complete with a hasp and staple (customer to supply padlock).



The Shire Overlap Garden Shed 12x8 with Double Doors is delivered from central UK stocks by the manufacturer. Shire's own experienced personnel undertake delivery to ensure your goods arrive in a perfect condition.


Shire operate mostly small, flat-bed trucks. If a dustbin lorry can reach your property, Shire should too. Limited access? Please call us prior to ordering to avoid a costly abortive delivery.


Unloading will take place at the kerb-side or your adjacent driveway. Vehicles will not leave the public highway. The driver, at their discretion, may be willing to carry the goods to your garden. Shire will not carry goods through or into your home, therefore you may wish to arrange some extra help privately.

Free Delivery

Shire offer a free delivery service within Central and Southern England, as indicated by their red zone on the map below. The above postcode checker will confirm this for you.

Pick A Day Delivery

For products on '7-14 days' delivery located within the majority of Shire's free red zone, during the checkout process you will be offered a calendar which allows you to select a preferred delivery date. Shire will endeavour to deliver on the date you have chosen. You will be promptly notified in the rare event that an alternative date is necessary for logistical reasons. As some distant red zone locations (such as BA postcodes) are serviced on a 2-day (overnight) run, the actual delivery day may vary by +/- 1 day of the date chosen. The following red zone locations are excluded from the Pick A Day service; BB, BD, BH, BL, BS, DH, DL, DT, FY, GU, HG, HR, L, PO, PR, SO, SP, SR, TA, TS and WN. Note: When an installation option has been chosen, a Pick-A-Day selection will not be offered; due to additional, post-order labour scheduling.  

Delivery Period

Delivery will typically occur within the period quoted on this product. For those products outside the '7-14 days' offer, you will be given the opportunity to chose your delivery date via Shire's online booking portal; a link will be sent by text or email a day or so after order. If a date is not chosen, Shire will notify you in advance by either telephone, text or email to confirm their date of delivery.

Extended Delivery

Less frequently serviced locations such as those outside Shire's red zone, may be subject to an extended period of up to an additional 7-14 days. These distant locations include North and South-West England, Wales and Scotland.

Installation (Extended Delivery)

When an installation service is chosen the product delivery period will increase by approximately 14-28 days, to accommodate additional labour scheduling. Therefore, a '14 Day' self-assembly delivery will become a '28-42 day' installed order. Once placed, Shire will issue an installation pack by email to explain the standard of supporting base required (concrete, paving etc), to enable installation to proceed. Installation scheduling will only commence once the customer returns the base and access information Shire request, including images of their existing base. A prompt return is advisable to avoid delay.

Offshore Delivery

The only offshore location Shire deliver to is the Isle of Wight; PO30-41. A green zone delivery charge applies to this island.

Excluded Locations

Shire does not service the following distant onshore locations; Northern Ireland (BT) and Scottish Highlands (IV4+, KW, PA20-78 and PH19-44). These form the yellow zone as shown upon the lower map. All offshore locations are excluded too, examples being; Guernsey (GY), Western Isles (HS), Isle of Man (IM), Jersey (JE), Orkney (KW), Shetland (ZE) and Scottish Islands (PA & PH).

Distant Surcharge

Due to additional Shire zone fees, certain distant locations can only be serviced at a surcharge (at cost). The above post code checker can confirm if a surcharge will apply.

These locations include:

Orange Zone (CF,CH,LA,NP) at £56.00 (except 19mm Log Cabins at £72.00 and 28mm+ Log Cabins at £210.00)

Blue Zone (CA,EX,LD,NE,SY) at £60.00 (except 19mm Log Cabins at £78.00 and 28mm+ Log Cabins at £240.00)

Green Zone (DG,EH,G,KA,LL,ML,PL,PO30-41,SA1-18,TD,TQ) at £72.00 (except 19mm Log Cabins at £84.00 and 28mm+ Log Cabins at £360.00)

Purple Zone (AB,DD,FK,IV1-3,KY,PA1-19,PH1-18,SA19-73,TR) at £108.00 (except 19mm Log Cabins at £120.00 and 28mm+ Log Cabins at £480.00)

This map offers a visual impression of the four surcharge zones. Delivery is free within the central red zone. No delivery service is available to the yellow zone.

    I am extremely pleased with the 12x8 ft Shed purchased from One Garden. It was delivered on time and was quite straightforward to build, with a sturdy construction including a middle brace, good roof panels and nice window construction. The end result is very satisfying, I have had several people comment on the quality of the shed. Also I feel it was comparably well priced for the size. I would definitely recommend this shed and supplier.

    Delivered on day requested tracking was great, could keep. A watch on where delivery was and time of arrival. Delivery driver was very efficient. Unloaded with care and placed at desired spot on the drive. Not erected yet as still got ground prep to do. But looks nice decent quality. Will add photos when in place. Value for money

    Easy to order and I received good communication about the order throughout. The shed came really quickly, which was excellent considering the wait with other suppliers. The shed was extremely good value for money but as you can imagine, the quality isn't brilliant - you get what you pay for! The quality is perfectly acceptable - the only 2 things I would mention are that the doors are quite low and I keep banging my head! The other is the doors, I think we're going to reinforce them as they would be very easy to break into.

    Ordering and communications were very good and shed arrived in the time slot we were given. Surprised there was only one man delivering so felt the need to give him a hand to prevent the large sides being scraped along the floor. Shed looks reasonably sturdy for the price - not put together yet so can’t comment on ease of build.

    Overall I'm pretty happy with the shed for the price. I will say that this the first shed I've ever purchased and assembled so perhaps some of the below is to be expected. It went together ok, but the instructions could be much clearer. It would be great if there was a youtube link to somebody assembling the same or a similar product, it wouldn't be that difficult to do and would take away a bit of the guess work if your not a master craftsman! There were some bigger than expected holes and cracks to fill once assemble just due to poor manufacture. I also added a few wood screws here and there to firm things up a bit. Particularly in areas where the overlaps had split. My shed was also missing some parts, one role of felt was missing and the bolts for the doors. To be fair I didn't contact one garden about this as I was mid build when I discovered it and needed the felt to make the shed waterproof ASAP as rain was forecast for the afternoon so I went and bought a roll myself and some bolts whilst I was there! Make sure you have a framing hammer to put the window panes in as the ones supplied were glass and I found it precarious banging in the nails next to the glass, the instructions said that they should have been perspex. I used small wood screws instead of nails in the end and that made things much easier. I pre-drilled all the batons and it took no time after that.

    The shed itself is brilliant, but the delivery driver was less than brilliant!. He delivered the shed and refused to place it on my property instead leaning it against a skip on the pavement, when my wife asked him not to place it against the skip but lay it on the front lawn his response was “it’s not my job!” and “it’s a two person lift” maybe in the future it would be a good idea to have two people delivering. I have pictures of the way it was left if you would like to have for reference. (ONE GARDEN COMMENT: Thank you for your feedback. Strictly speaking the Shire driver may well have been delivering within his remit as defined as "Unloading will take place at the kerb-side or your adjacent driveway", if for example a driveway wasn't available he could pull onto. Please accept our apologies that the manufacturer's driver didn't explain this or go beyond his remit more readily. All of our garden building manufacturer's operate a 1-person delivery profile, as they all strive to maintain a free delivery service whenever possible, without the financial burden of a 'paid passenger'. Please forward the pictures, we will share these with the driver's employer.)

    Fairly sturdy apart from the floor being a bit thin so it flexes a bit much when it's walked on. Hasp also a bit small.
