During our manufacturing process, we dip treat our entire range of playhouses. This involves applying a water based colourant to your garden building, protecting your playhouse whilst it is in storage and transit. However, it is important to note that this treatment is not a preservative. Therefore, your garden building will still require a high-quality timber preservative and waterproofing top coat as soon as possible after construction.
Before purchasing your new playhouse be sure to check the specific measurements of its size in the Specification section of the product listing. As often in product titles, we round up measurements just so it’s easier for you to find your perfect garden building.
Your new playhouse will be supplied as a flat-pack DIY kit with full instructions. If you’re taking on the project yourself, be sure to check out our Self-Installation advice page for plenty of helpful tips.
We strongly advise if you are planning on using a third party installer to construct your playhouse that you do not book their services until you receive and are happy with your garden building. As we do not cover any third party cost in the instance of a failed delivery or a damaged item preventing installation.
Please note that this playhouse has been dressed to look its very best in our product images. Any accessories or fixtures featured are not supplied with this garden building. Also, unless our Ready Painted and Installation Service is selected all of our playhouses are delivered unpainted.
As standard, this garden shed includes a 1 year Manufacturer’s guarantee, as well as a 10 Year Anti-rot Guarantee*. Just make sure to follow the product instructions and our manufacturers recommendations and your guarantee will be good to go.

Please note that our 10 Year Anti-rot Guarantee does not cover your garden building from the movement of timber that takes place over time. This includes; the twisting, warping and splitting of timber.

A flat, level base is essential when building your new playhouse. We recommend the following bases; concrete, slab paving, ground-level bearers or a wooden frame.
Prior to building your playhouse be sure to check your base is level in both directions. If the base of your playhouse is not level when it is constructed it will cause the building to twist and warp with the natural movement of the timber. Therefore, it is really important to adjust your base accordingly to achieve this before constructing your garden building.
For more information on how to build a suitable base take a look at our handy guide. - How to Build a Shed Base

A clear film is used to protect your Styrene windows. Once your log cabin is installed and treated this will need to be removed. This can be done by simply scoring around the edge of the window and peeling back the plastic covering inside and out.
The windows of our garden buildings are designed to fit well. However, over time due to the natural movement of the timber small gaps can occur. To prevent this from occuring make sure to seal your Styrene windows with a silicone sealant inside and out.
To see exactly how to do this, take a look at our Protect Your Shed - Silicone Window Sealant video.
