Forest 6' x 8' (Nominal) Apex Overlap Timber Shed with Base (2161K)

Traditional-style overlap shed with apex roof giving an attractive appearance. Manufactured from square-cut overlap timber boards, helping rain water run off the building and allowing flexibility and movement. The felted roof is constructed from weatherproof, durable sheet material. Sturdy door is braced with double-Z framing for added strength and security and can be hung on either side. Safe and secure hidden hinges with a plate hasp and staple latch. Strong polycarbonate glazing allows extra light in, is fitted with security screws and will not become brittle or yellow over time. Hardwearing sheet material floor. Timber is dip-treated and guaranteed against rot and fungal decay for 10 years, provided the shed is isolated from ground contact and is regularly retreated with timber preservative.

Can the left side of the shed be swapped to the right so the windows are on the opposte side?

Can the windows be moved to the opposite side. With the picture above if this was in my garden the windows would end up facing a 6ft brick wall but if they were located on the other side they would face out into the garde.

Good Afternoon, thank you for your recent enquiry. This item is delivered flat-pack and can be installed with the windows on the opposite side. Many thanks, Colin Price.

It states it comes with a base, what does it mean by this? what kind of base is provided and whats its purpose

Asked by: savva06
Good Afternoon - thank-you for your recent enquiry. All of our sheds are provided with an integrated floor which has bearers underneath. If the shed is to be sited on a solid base, i.e. concrete, slabs or decking the use of a base is not necessary. If the shed is to be sited on to soil or a soft surface the use of a base is necessary to raise the shed slightly off the ground so that air can circulate and prevent the shed from rotting from the ground up. The base we would supply is a wooden structure with metal spikes, the spikes are attached to the underneath of the base and pushed down into the earth and the shed is then built on top of this structure. I hope this answers your question, many thanks, Colin Price.
