The Summerhouse is an eye-catching, traditional summerhouse perfect for any garden. This characteristic building is a great feature to have in your garden, as well as serving many purposes throughout the year. Offering fantastic features the Summerhouse is well designed, giving you great value for money.

Featuring Georgian windows and double doors on the front of the building, this allows plenty of light to flood throughout the building, giving you an ideal place to relax and enjoy the summer months in your garden. Adding style to this traditional building the doors have a stylish antique handle which adds a little extra touch to the exterior of the building and a 3 lever lock which adds extra security to your building. You can use The Summerhouse even in the cooler months, as there is a generous amount of space for you to sit within the building with a blanket and a book, and you can even store away your garden furniture when it is not in use, making it accessible to you as and when you need it.

This well-established Summerhouse comes with a 6 pane window on the front of the building and also features a 9 pane window on both sides of the garden. Making it an ideal place to relax, a great place to sit and enjoy the produce in your garden. It’s also ideal for those hot summer days when you need to circulate air throughout the building to cool off.

You can make a feature of this building by adding planting outside, in planters or pots or even hanging baskets. This building is also ideal for entertaining guests, with wide opening doors giving a generous amount of space to sit and eat. An additional optional extra includes a 2'6" and 4' verandah, which adds more space and a fantastic place to have extra seating.

By purchasing a bitumen paper waterproof membrane lining, which is fitted between the framing and cladding whilst the walls are being manufactured helps to act as a damp proof membrane. This impervious layer ensures that the inside of your building is drier and is ideal if you want to insulate and board your building.

We recommend that you use bearers to protect the most vulnerable part of any garden building, the floor. The bearers 3"x3" (75mmx75mm) timber tanalised posts, guaranteed against rot for 15 years. They completely raise the building of the floor completely allowing the air to circulate underneath to prevent any damp from entering the building from the floor.
