Features of the Everett 6 x 8 ft Shed

The features capturing my attention encapsulating this Everett shed are the modernistic approach expressed through stylish molding, not only acclaiming to high attraction through the wondrous aesthetic appearance, it’s the weather-resistant credentials harboured within the resin make-up that’s worthy of inspection.

High pitched roof allows for efficient rainwater drainage, twin lockable doors simplify the entranceway, skylights in the roof plus windows in the doors escape the predicament of rummaging around in the dark whilst a free flow of fresh air circulates internally through the air vents creating a fresh ambience rather than a sweaty atmosphere, an environment we find keeps storage in prime condition too.

A built in floor serves the purpose of maintaining a clean environment thus protecting storage however Suncast floors are purposely designed tough making them resilient to strenuous storage pressures.

Overall, this medium storage facility is straightforward to assemble however once constructed the #1 priority is outdoor storage protection and this durable resin manufacture delivers.

What does feedback say regarding this Everett model?

“Great Shed” “Perfect for us” “Solid storage shed” “Best shed ever” are the waves of delight expressing this Everett model through feedback in reviews.

Purchasers adore the features detailed above, whilst the charming appearance along with the quickie good fun hose down to maintain the clean appearance rather than the ongoing hassle wooden structures represent result in the allurement.

However there’s always a slight crux to anything that seems too good and this regards the instructions. Sounds like they should be redesigned as many do find the assembly process somewhat confusing however once built floods of positivity shine through.

We were slightly taken aback on delivery of our chosen resin shed, the instructions stipulate solid level foundations must be prepared for the shed to sit on yet non of the websites selling these sheds specified this in their advertisement.

We were delayed for a week whilst preparing the correct foundations. Conforming to the rules becomes apparent once you start to construct. These shed are tall, if your out of cinq on the base the lining up procedure is exaggerated once you reach the roof. So glad we payed attention here.

Seriously, to put this in a nutshell, those who conform to the precise base procedure find all the panels line up at ease for an efficient build. These people provide excellent feedback however those who disregard this stipulation grapple with frustrations simply because the sheets struggle lining up.

Sturdy features of Everett Sheds

We turned our attention away from insubstantial single walled compositions and headed down a more robust route to what the makeup of these Everett sheds entail.

Once constructed, the finish results in a shed as sturdy as it is stylish. The dual walled resin sheets interlock with each other securing to the metal roof framework that’s further bolstered through additional supports by virtue of a metal truss system increasing strength and stability of the overall structure.

The double door entrance includes stylish metal hardware resulting in a quality finish and entryway however once inside there’s no scrimping on the built-in floor either, this is fortified through a thick resin manufacture designed for tractor support and utilising heavy demanding storage pressures.

Everett 6 x 8 ft Facade

The Everett’s attractive facade comes in sheet form, a series of panels that interlock with the floor delivering a truly build-in base whilst interlocking with the next sheet, securing with screws and so forth concluding the build.

The manufacturing process is blow molded technology where the resin is formed into dual walled sheets providing a sturdy construction yet molded on the outside to represent wooden panelling with a subtle sandy warm glow that merges gracefully with the chocolate coloured doors.

Mixed into this resin mix however are the vital ingredients critical for storage preservation. UV inhibitors prevent the process of cracking and fading in the sun whilst this resin is impervious to water resulting in a facade that’s weather-resistant and durable.

This type of resin doesn’t rot or rust, it’s effortless to clean and stress-free, the yearning desire wood can only dream of. I quite enjoy the quick hose down, it’s done in a flash.

Everett’s Waterproof Topping

With respect to Suncast, they have designed the most effective high pitched roofs on this Everett range, destined for rainwater to flow off immediately upon impact.

The beauty of a high peaked roof apart from an excellent drainage system is the non occurrence of water puddling and the internal dimensions are increased enabling walking around inside without being crouched over. Although there’s a structural beam spanning the apex internally, it’s over 6ft high generating oceans of additional space up in the rafters.

Another positive is the prevention of water seeping in at the top of the walls, overcome by the creation of eaves due to the generous overlap the roof has with the walls.

The roof is resin based harbouring waterproof credentials whilst molded into an attractive slate effect, topping the roof off with style. The resin sheets are molded into a double walled construction providing a sturdy finish yet secured around a metal framework that’s further shored up by a metal truss system providing additional strength for snowier times.

Due to the weather-resistant advantages resin purveys there’ll be no future re-roofing involved as rot is a non issue as far as resin is concerned.

Everett’s Built-In Floor

One particular aspect that diverted our attention towards the quality plastic variety as opposed to metal was the built-in floor. Metal sheds rarely include this built-in feature yet we simply didn’t want to deal with any problems associated with puddles of water appearing inside the shed.

We’re pleased to bits with the clean internal atmosphere delivered by this true built-in design, storage is kept so clean due to the fact that there’s no admittance for the outside environment to sweep under the walls creating dust and so forth.

Everett’s built-in floor comes in thick sheets of heavy duty resin, reinforced for storing weighty items and wheeling in heavy duty equipment like lawnmowers and the likes.

The floor sheets interlock into place constructing the shed base whilst the walls interlock with the floor creating a sealed unit. It’s recommended that the shed is anchored down into the foundations for protection against the storms.

It’s worth noting that the endurance capabilities of the hardwearing floor will only suffice if the shed sits on solid level foundations, it’s purposely designed to be tough and will serve this way if the base rules are adhered to.

Other popular uses are for storing gardening equipment & tools, barbecue paraphernalia, parking bikes & lawnmowers, patio seating & accessories and due to the wide double door access, this masters one quick tidy-up for the kids toys.

Internally it combines the dimensions into 45sq/ft yet include the height and there’s 306 cu/ft storage capacity.

Although additional accessories for hanging and shelving can be purchased separately consider the option of installing free standing shelves banked down one side or at the back. This enables using the generous height for a whole plethora of storage possibilities.

Installing stand-alone shelving is what we and many others have done to increase storage options further.

Skylights and Widows in the doors allow for daylight to enter

Daylight is allowed to bask the interior through the skylights embedded within the roof and windows in the doors whilst a fresh internal environment is created by the superb feature of air vents situated front and rear resulting in a fresh air current circulating around inside.

We don’t find any sweaty atmosphere, rather a fresh ambience that preserves storage.

Everett 6 x 8 ft Access

The access derived by this Everett 6 x 8 ft is fab, they’re 6 ft in height whilst the doors open the near width of the shed making the carrying of storage items or wheeling in heavy equipment easy.

The doors are manufactured from weather-resistant resin through a molding process, creating a dual walled conformation with a semblance of wood paneling containing a wood grain effect whilst harbouring 8 square windows per door, designed to project a divine chocolate colour.

Easy grip handles provide a quality entrance whilst a built-in clasp designed for a padlock enables securing the shed. A padlock is not supplied.

Want Shut of future upkeep duties?

We decided to place all the maintenance issues associated with our last wooden shed firmly behind closed doors by moving into the resin world. It’s been a great decision on our behalf, this small duty of a quick hose down to expose its shiny exterior is a job I get satisfaction from, beats the heck out of re-staining year on year.

There’ll be no rust or rot with this kind of facility as resin doesn’t deteriorate. No future re-roofing duties either, so throw away the old stain, paint and varnish and get prepared for enjoying outdoor living.

Most of us find a quick hose down is sufficient to bring back assembly days pristineness however we find a couple of cups of white vinegar into a bucket of hot soapy water removes anything ingrained using a soft brush however this is only once in a while.

Everett 6 x 8 ft Shed Assembly

We decided to obey the plastic shed foundation stipulations and prepare solid level foundations for our shed to sit on. A perfect base for this size is either concrete, wood or paving making sure it’s perfectly level. Are we glad we obeyed.

You find all the panels line up at ease and this really does aid construction plus the floor serves just as the brochure says, heavy duty increasing its longevity for demanding storage pressures.

2 people are required to build this Everett 6 x 8 ft shed, one holding the panels whilst the other secures with screws. A step ladder is required whilst movement is essential around all sides of the shed for fitting the roof.

Suncast have developed a system called easy bolt technology for their sheds assembly, a quick process of securing the panels once lined up. They do warn however not to over tighten the screws in fear of stripping the thread, just tighten up tight.

We took the advisable measure of reading through the instructions the week before assembly took place to become acquainted with the build. Throughout that week we installed the hardware on the doors and sorted the windows etc whilst Tracy, my wife placed all the parts in order to the step by step instructions.

We rolled assembly like clockwork, very organised and this is the key to quicken the project. Construction always takes longer for us novice DIYers to construct to what the manufacturers predict but who cares, do a great job and enjoy the build.

We were impressed with the how the overall structure ties together, from standard panels into a satisfactory sturdy structure.

Once completed we anchored the shed down into the foundations for protection against the wild weather but we had to purchase the correct anchor screws as these are dependant on the base material and not included.

All the best, make a great job.

    Hi!

    I’m glad I found this post. We have an outdoor shed built with wood and zinc, and we sometimes have to go through the perils of replacing rotten wood and leaky zinc-sheet rooftops. I have one concern, though. Considering that I live in an area where it rains at least 6 months in a year–and I’m talking about heavy rainfall–I’m wondering whether a plastic shed would be our ultimate solution for outdoor storage.

    Thanks!

      Hi Princila,

      Thanks for calling in and reading.

      I’ve been through the hassle you’ve gone through with regards to maintenance issues on garden sheds, it can be a nightmare.

      I decided to have a complete change and opted for resin rather than wood due to the fact that resin is weather-resistant and waterproof. Resin doesn’t rot, rust or decay and that’s what caught our attention.

      We did have a look at metal sheds too but they seldom have built-in floors and I didn’t fancy having problems with rainwater flooding the shed floor. Some metal sheds say build a wooden floor for the shed but that doesn’t get rid of the rotting problems on the shed floor, so we opted to try plastic.

      There are loads of single walled plastic sheds but I had my worries whether they would stand up to adverse weather conditions so we decided on a dual walled version like this shed review.

      We live in the Uk and get wet weather most of the year including a lot of heavy rainfall and we’ve had no issues due to preparing the correct solid level foundation for the shed to sit on, this is imperative to the proper construction of the shed.

      If you take a look at the full selection of shed ranges in the top menu you will see the varying sizes of all quality plastic sheds within their ranges. Keter are huge in the Uk, lifetime and Suncast are very well established and extremely popular in the USA, most of the reviews on this website are hugely popular resinsheds.

      Hope this helps and good luck with your decision,

      Simon.

    Thanks for putting this together, lots of great information! Great way to compare different sheds.

    I’ve got one question for you. It looks like most of the sheds are made of panels so do any of the larger (8×12 and up) sheds allow for adding a second door in the rear?

    • Simon

      Hi,

      Thanks for calling in and reading, glad you like the website.

      Yeah, most of these sheds are 1 set of double doors however next week I shall be writing a review on a large Lifetime shed. This one is a dual entry system, a shed consisting of 2 sets of double doors. The size is 15 x 8 feet.

      Call back in towards the middle to end of next week and hopefully I will have created the review, it will be displayed towards the top of the home page.

      Hope this helps and thanks again,

      Simon.
