Available in a range of designs and sizes, Forest 4Life™ Overlap Pressure Treated Sheds are beautifully handcrafted here, in Great Britain. Packed full of premium features, they are the best range of overlap sheds Forest has ever made. This particular model is the 7x5 Double Door Pent Shed (2.26m x 1.7m), making it perfectly suited to people requiring stylish, easy-to-access garden storage.

Fully Modular Design, Pressure-Treated Wood and 4Life™ Guarantee

This garden shed is expertly designed and built by Britain's leading manufacturer of wooden sheds. Pressure treated and supplied with an extraordinary 25-year anti-rot guarantee, which is the longest guarantee on the market, the wood will never need retreating, sparing you the inconvenience of costly, time-consuming maintenance and providing you with an unbeatably durable shed. You'll only ever need one shed with a 4Life™ Shed!

Now featuring an improved fully modular design, this 7x5 shed is delivered to you in smaller sections of interchangeable panels, so you'll find it much easier to assemble than other wooden sheds. This fully modular design also allows you market-leading flexibility on door and window placements, helping you customise the shed to your exact requirements. What's more, with 30% more framing, this garden shed isn't just easier to assemble and more versatile than other wooden sheds, it's far stronger too.

Smart Overlap Walls, Extra-Thick Floor and Contemporary Pent Roof

The walls are constructed from 7mm overlap cladding, which allows for the natural movement of the timber over the changing seasons and ensures excellent rainwater runoff. These overlap boards are straight cut, giving them a much smarter finish than standard overlap cladding.

The extra-thick 14mm solid wood floor is 40% thicker than standard shed flooring! It is supported by pressure-treated bearers, which provide a further layer of protection against rot-causing ground moisture.

The roof is built from tough 8mm OSB and fitted with a green mineral-felt cover for complete weatherproof protection. It comes with a contemporary pent design to nicely round off the shed's exceptionally stylish appearance.

Security Doors and Shatterproof Glazing

You can access this shed via wide double doors, which are ledged and braced for extra strength and to prevent dropping/ movement. Hidden security hinges plus a padlock-ready hasp & staple plate give you peace of mind that your valuable tools are safe (padlock not included).

The 2 PET-glazed windows provide plenty of natural light – perfect if you're storing important equipment or working on DIY projects. Far more secure than conventional glass, these windows are completely shatterproof, made from recycled materials, and will neither discolour nor fade over time. You can install them in a variety of positions – the choice is yours. (Please see the floor plan for further details.)

Free Delivery

Free delivery is available to most UK postcodes, using Forest's White Glove Delivery Service, who will drop your new shed off wherever you like in the garden, with all of the packaging removed. This overlap shed comes with a full set of fixings and clear instructions to help you achieve a straightforward assembly.

Optional Upgrades

If you'd rather the professionals assemble the shed for you, we offer a competitively-priced installation service as an optional upgrade.

You can purchase a pressure-treated shed base as an optional extra too.

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 212.1cm (w) x 147.1cm (d)



Plastic Shed Base

Plastic Shed Base Kit

Quick and simple to install, the 7x5 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 15 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. A helpful video of how to install this plastic shed base can be found here. You must prepare the base yourself, in accordance with the supplied instructions, in advance of the installers' visit. Laying the base straight onto grass will not be suitable and the installers will not be able to assemble your garden building.

"We're proud to be the largest and most trusted manufacturer and distributor of garden timber products in the UK" - Forest Garden

Making British Gardens Great


At Forest, we know a fair bit about fences. And sheds for that matter. In fact, we've been one of the UK's most trusted manufacturer and distributor of quality wooden garden products for over 50 years.


With two sawmills in the UK processing locally-sourced timber, and a Head Office in Hartlebury, Worcestershire, you’ll find our range of garden buildings, fencing, decking and decorative structures for sale across many sites online and in over 3,000 retail stores. From the forest to the doorstep, we are involved every step of the way to ensure we bring you the best product and service.


Well made in Britain


The majority of the timber we use is grown and felled from managed UK forests across Scotland and Wales. After felling, the timber is cut and processed in one of our nearby sawmills and taken to our manufacturing operation in the heart of Britain. It is here our skilled workforce proudly produce the widest range of garden buildings, fencing and structures available in the UK.


All of the products that we sell are dispatched from this site. The final part of their journey is managed by our dedicated delivery department who are responsible for distribution direct to customers' homes by our fleet of vehicles.


Home Grown


We're proud to say that the majority of the timber we use is cut in our very own sawmill from trees grown in the UK.


Not only that, but our range is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council and the majority of our products carry the FSC logo - so you know that our timber is ethically sourced from well-managed, sustainable forests that are replanted for future generations.
