This shed comes with the floor included.
The Walton’s Value Overlap Shed (8’ x 6’) is a great value storage space for your property. The apex roofs have a high roofline ideal for storing longer or taller items and helping to provide additional headroom on the interior. They also allow rainwater to drip from the top of the building rather than collect in puddles.The extra low price of this shed is due to the construction which is assembled through overlapped Timber. This shed also utilises rigid, interior 28mm x 28mm framing which makes the build all the more durable. The floor and roof are built from solid sheet materials for added stability. This type of flooring gives the shed a secure feel. The foundation of the shed includes numerous bearers to ensure that your floor is not sitting on damp ground.
Please note: In order to receive the full 10 year anti-rot guarantee, it is necessary that you treat the garden building with a high quality preservative shortly after construction. Please see After Sales FAQ's for further information.
Delivery is FREE to most UK postcodes- Please see the Delivery Page for details.

Cheap & Cheerful!
The Company: First time dealing with Walton's. I've got no complaints. The website is decent, the woman who phoned to arrange delivery was pleasant and e-mail communications have been good.
Delivery: As promised, the delivery driver called to confirm delivery approx 30 minutes before arrival. He was helpful enough to assist in carrying the shed parts into my garden, and to the approximate area where I was planning to build the thing. He didn't even complain about the torrential rain that day.
The Shed: It's not the best shed in the world, but I paid less than £220 for it including delivery, so I wasn't expecting the best shed in the world. All the bits are there, it all fitted together pretty well, and the instructions were clearer than those you get from IKEA. If you're looking for a cheap basic shed, then this will do the job nicely.
Thanks to the crap weather, it took us about 5 hours over three days to completely assemble and weather-proof the shed. We made a couple of basic mistakes along the way, probably caused by inexperience and impatience. Bear the following in mind when building:
1. Make sure you get the doors the right way round. The batons on the back are not symmetrical. The reason for this only becomes apparent towards the end of the build, and meant I had to remove and re-hang the doors.
2. If the instructions advise pre-drilling a hole, then pre-drill it. Trying to skip this step WILL result in split wood.
3. The screws that hold the hinges to the walls & doors stick out quite a lot (on the inside of the shed). It is worth having a few extra bits of wood handy to screw these into - it also provides additional strength to the hinges. Luckily, the shed comes with packing strips on the bottom of the walls (you have to remove these prior to assembly) which are ideal for this purpose.
4. Weather proofing is bloody difficult if you build the shed too close to a wall or fence. The employment of children (for ice-cream) can help, but it's probably best if you leave enough space.
Walton's were great to deal with. The shed is decent quality for the price. What more could you want?

Satisfied except for the doors.
The order was despatched promptly.and the driver was very helpful..
The shed is well made except that I thought there should be supporting members at the centre of the roof to prevent any saggin. In fact installed supports myself.
The instruction booklet was clear except that it ommitted any reference to fitting the doors. For example, the overlap structure of the shed meant that I had to cut and fit wedges to underpin the centre screws on each of the upper hinges,
The doors were about 9.5mm too wide for the opening even with the gable liner removed, and I had to plane one door accordingly. This made a simple job problematic and time-consuming.
Overall, I am pleased wioth the shed and were the above points addressed I would then award it 5 stars.
