The Waltons 5 x 3 Overlap Apex Wooden Garden Shed offers the ideal storage space for those with smaller gardens. This small garden shed is ideal for storing everyday gardening tools, such as small lawn mowers, rakes and other gardening tools. Featuring overlap cladding, the walls of this wooden store have been designed to offer an attractive and rustic finish that prevents water ingress. Thick 28mm x 28mm interior framing offers structural support for a rigid build. A single door provides easy access to the building; braced ledging has been fitted to the inside of the door to add support.
To ensure that this building can withstand daily use, the floor and roof of this garden shed have been manufactured using solid sheet board; perfect for storing every day gardening and outdoor items. A windowless design means that all your garden belongings are out of sight, helping to prevent the chances of theft. A traditional apex style roof offers extra interior height that is ideal for storing tall gardening tools, such as ladders and brushes. Quality roof felt is supplied with this storage shed to protect from adverse weather for a long lasting build.
We manufacture this shed here in the UK, using FSC® certified timber, so you can be confident in the quality. The shed comes complete with robust fixtures and fittings as well as our detailed instructions and manufacturer’s recommendations, for an easy and stress-free build. This building benefits from our 10 year anti-rot guarantee as well as our 1 year manufacturer’s warranty. All we ask is that you treat the building upon construction with a high quality timber preservative and a waterproof top coat, and your guarantee will be good to go!
Our dip treated sheds, once installed, will need treating as soon as possible and on an annual basis in order to receive the 10 year anti rot guarantee*. The building also includes a 1 year manufacturers guarantee* as standard.
Dip Treated Sheds
Our sheds are supplied flat packed as DIY kits with full instructions.
It is the customer's responsibility to follow the product instructions and the information outlined within the Manufacturers recommendations.
All of our sheds are delivered unpainted. The sheds are dressed for display, we don't supply any accessories or shelves featured within the product images.
Our factory applied dip treatment may differ in shade between components as it is simply a basecoat.
Exact product dimensions are supplied on the listing as we do round off the main size of the building in the title in order to make it easier for customers to find, so please be sure to check the item's specific measurements carefully.
Delivery times highlighted with an asterisk (*) refer to working days.
10 Year Anti-Rot Guarantee
Our dip treated sheds come with a 10 year anti rot guarantee. Anti-rot protection guards against fungal decay. The guarantee does not cover movement, twisting, warping or splitting of timber products over time.
During manufacture we apply a water based colourant for protection whilst in storage and transit. This treatment is not a preservative therefore the product will require a preservative and waterproofing top coat application as soon after construction as possible.
In order to keep your shed in tip top shape and maintain the 10 year anti rot guarantee, it will need re-treating at least annually. Only high quality timber preservatives should be used and applied in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations. This must be done at least annually to preserve the 10 year anti rot guarantee. For more information please refer to the Waltons T&C's.
1 Year Manufacturer's Guarantee
Subject to the conditions set out in the T&C's (Section 8) the Seller warrants that the Goods will correspond with their specification at the time of delivery and will be free from defects in material and workmanship for a period of 12 months.
Whilst we work hard to design all of our garden buildings to adhere to planning permission guidelines, we cannot guarantee that planning permission will not be required. Therefore we advise that it is always best to check with your local authorities before erecting a garden building.
We want you to enjoy the use of your new garden shed for many years. To ensure this, it is important your shed is protected at the start and maintained during its life. If you're planning a DIY project, please read our Self-Installation & How to Build a Shed advice pages before you start.
All long-lasting sheds will have been built on a solid and level base, either concrete, slabs, a wooden frame or ground level bearers. A flat, level base is essential, for more information go to our How to Build a Shed Base guide.
If your shed is not level and square when built, it will twist and warp with the natural movement of the wood. The first signs of this are when the doors or windows stop opening and closing properly. You may get issues with the roof and potential gaps in the panels which will allow water in, there may be flex in the floor and probably creaking. Check your base is level in both directions and adjust prior to the build. It will be really difficult to adjust afterwards.
Our styrene windows are protected using a clear film which will need to be removed after you've installed and treated the shed. This can be removed easily by scoring round the edge of the window and peeling back the plastic covering.
All Waltons shed windows are designed to fit well, but over time and with the movement of wood, small gaps can appear. Help to prevent this by sealing your windows with a silicone sealant. You can do this either when you build your shed, or add it to an existing one. We've created this video Protect Your Shed - Silicone Window Sealant for guidance.
We've also created these handy Maintenance Guides to help you make the most out of your shed, for years to come. Should you require any further advice, you can contact our Customer Service Team on 0800 029 1000 and select Option 3.

Your item will be delivered by a flatbed vehicle to kerbside only, by one delivery driver. The delivery driver will unload the item piece by piece to prevent any damage, depending on the size of the item this may take a few hours. At no point will the delivery driver require assistance with unloading the item.
Your item will be delivered by a flatbed van to kerbside only, though at the driver's discretion they may be able to help you lift the building to a more suitable location outside your property. If you need to transport the building through your property, for example if you live in a terraced house, then please be mindful that you will have to make your own arrangements prior to delivery to do this, as our drivers are not insured to enter your property and will therefore only deliver to the front of your property.

Scroll through to learn more about the different cladding styles that are available for our sheds.
Our overlap cladding is manufactured using thick panels that are nailed to vertical, internal framing with an overlapping profile. Overlap cladding is the easiest and cheapest construction method, making it a cost effective option. This type of construction is great for those looking for a secure, dry storage solution but we would encourage those looking to spend a lot of time inside the shed to consider a Shiplap alternative.
We manufacture our shiplap cladding using thick, pressure treated 12mm tongue and groove boards that lock together and are then nailed to vertical internal framing. Featuring a protective lip, this cladding protects your building from the weather with a tight seal. This type of construction is great for those looking to spend lots of time within the shed or for a more robust and strong storage solution.
Our sheds are dip treated during manufacture as standard. This is the process in which we apply a water based colourant for protection whilst in storage and transit. This is not a preservative therefore the building will require a preservative and waterproofing top coat application as soon after construction as possible. This is required to validate your 10 year anti-rot guarantee.
Timber is cut ready for treatment.
Timber is dipped into a cylider containing preservative.
Preservative is absorbed into the surface of the timber.
Timber is removed from cylinder containing preservative.
Timber is left to airdry.
Pressure treatment is a high pressure chemical process designed to preserve exposed timber, by providing optimal protection against insect attack, fungal attack and decay. The pressure treatment process impregnates preservative chemicals deep into the timber fibres to protect it against the elements. This process provides your building with 15 years anti rot guarantee, providing you apply a waterproof treatment once installed and annually thereafter.
timber is loaded into a chamber & a vacuum empties timber cells of air.
Timber is flooded under vacuum with preservative.
Preservative is forced deep into timber using hydraulic pressure.
Another vacuum extracts excess preservative.
Timber is left to dry under a low pressure.
Our Roof &Floor Materials
Scroll through to learn more about the different roof and floor materials that are available for our sheds.
Solid sheet board is an engineered wood formed by adding adhesive and then compressing layers of oriented strands of wood to form a strong and robust panel. This material is perfect for everyday use and will form a strong base or ceiling to your building. If you require a more heavy duty flooring for holding large tools and equipment, you may want to consider upgrading to tongue and groove.
12mm Tongue &Groove Boards
Toungue & Groove boards make the perfect roof and floor for frequently used buildings as well as those that will be storing heavier items such as work benches, tools or furniture. The boards interlock to form a tight seal, helping them spread the load within the building. We'd always recommend upgrading to tongue and groove boards if you plan to spend a lot of time within the building or if you're storing heavier items.
Styrene is a lightweight product that offers a safe and shatterproof alternative to traditional glass glazing. Used as standard within our shed, summerhouse, playhouse and greenhouse ranges, styrene is ideal for those with busy gardens or young children.
Natural Wood Characteristicts
As wood is a natural material it may be affected by the following:
Shrinkage & Warping
The timber used in the construction of your garden building will have retained some of its natural moisture content. The moisture content of the timber will vary, depending upon prevailing environmental conditions, which will result in the components either naturally expanding or contracting. As the components dry out shrinkage may occur. A good waterproofing treatment from the start is the best protection to minimise the effect of moisture loss/intake.
Damp & Mould
During the winter months, cold and damp conditions can result in an increased amount of moisture within your garden building, especially when used infrequently. Condensation can form on the timber and other items stored within your garden building. If left this moisture is likely to cause mould and mildew. To prevent the build-up of moisture, we recommend leaving the door or windows of your building open from time to time, to allow the fresh air to circulate. We also advise against storing wet or damp items in your garden building as this will also increase the level of moisture in the building. If mould or mildew does start to form within your building we recommend using an anti-mould cleaner to remove it and to prevent it spreading, which if left untreated could permanantly damage your garden building.
Splits, Cracks & Knots
Small splits and cracks in some components or holes may appear where knots shrink and fall out. This will not affect the structure of your garden building however if you wish to fill them this can be easily done using any good quality wood filler
Sap is naturally occurring in wood and may appear in some boards of your garden building. If you wish to remove the sap, we advise waiting until it is dry and then using a sharp knife to carefully remove it. If the removal of the sap causes a hole in the timber, we recommend using a good quality wood filler to fill it.
Please be aware that these are natural timber characteristics which in most cases will not impact the structure or function of the garden building, therefore are not considered as product defects (as outlined within our Terms & Conditions). If you require further advise or information please contact our friendly Customer Services Team.
