Enjoy a popular British classic with a traditional summer house. With apex roof designs and quaint verandas, these Waltons summer houses add elegance and style to your garden.
Whether you want a space to relax alone, or a place to entertain, these buildings can be a perfect addition to your garden. Our customer, Trace, from Ferryhill, said: "I waited over a year to order a summerhouse and I was not disappointed. It looks lovely and I am using it as my very own craft and reading room. Highly recommend Waltons, an excellent company and service to match".
To insulate a summer house, first, make sure it’s in good condition, fix any rot or damage and make sure windows and doors fit correctly; fix any draughts. Apply insulation to the walls and inside of the roof, choosing from cheaper options like bubble wrap or foil-backed bubble wrap, or go for rock wool, sheep’s wool, or highly insulating materials like PIR boards – also called Kingspan or Celotex. Next, fit panel boards to lock in your insulation material. Choose from hardboard, plywood, plasterboard, or tongue and groove timber. Apply your preferred finish.
How to furnish a summer house
When furnishing a summer house, remember a garden building is subject to extremes of temperature and humidity, which can be particularly tough on fabrics. Think patio rugs made from ultradurable woven polypropylene; outdoor cushions designed to be water-resistant; source an old armchair and cover with throws which you can bring indoors or store away when not in use. For curtains and tablecloths, opt for waxed cloth or oilcloth, which resists mould and can easily wipe down.
How to get wifi in a summer house
Check the range of your current router and consider extending its reach by moving it nearer, installing a signal booster, and removing plants and branches which might impede the signal. You might also contact your ISP to see if you’re due for a free upgrade; a new router might provide a larger area of coverage. For a more dependable connection, run ethernet cables alongside your main cabling, or use a powerline adapter to send the signal from your router through your shed’s electricity supply. If all else fails, consider using mobile tethering for a connection anywhere, provided there’s a strong enough signal.
