Customer story: Danni's summerhouse

20th March 2019

Here at Waltons, there’s nothing we love more than seeing how our customers choose to decorate their garden buildings. So you can imagine how happy we were when Danni got in touch to tell us all about her summerhouse!

Danni opted for the 10 x 8 Helios. Take a look at how Danni transformed it!

Why did you choose this particular summerhouse?

This particular summerhouse stood out to me as I wanted something which was symmetrical from the outside, the size was perfect for what I wanted, and the reviews were brilliant.

A lot of love has gone into the decor.

What extra work did you do to customise it?

I've done quite a lot of extra work to the summerhouse, due to using it for work purposes. I'll be in it for quite a few hours at a time, so I wanted something that looked and felt like it was more than a wooden shell; from insulating it myself, to having it plastered, to being fully kitted out with heating, alarm system and electricity.

A lovely tasteful interior.

What inspiration did you have for decorating it?

I use my summerhouse as a nail bar so I wanted the decor to be classy, on trend and stylish, and rose gold and glittery is definitely that! I spent a lot of time looking through the internet, decor mags and social media for ideas on how to finish the summerhouse and I'm so pleased with what I came up with.

A fantastic colour scheme.

What are you hoping to use it for?

I use the summerhouse as a base for my business as a nail technician. I'm a single parent to a little boy, aged 10, who has mitochondrial disease and special needs, this means I struggled to find a job that would work around his needs. I've always wanted to be in the nail & beauty industry so 2 and half years ago I decided to become a qualified nail technician, build a nail bar in my back garden and be my own boss so I can work around my son. This summerhouse has given me the ability to do this. I moved into it 4 months ago and I've loved working from it ever since.

The perfect space to work from home.

What do you think of the finished product? Are you happy with the results?

I'm over the moon with the finished project. It's my pride and joy and I'm so proud of myself for doing this for my son and I. I love the overall finish of the summerhouse and I'm so happy with the quality of it. Thank you Waltons for this fantastic product!
