    We manufacture this wooden summerhouse here in the UK, using ethically sourced, certified timber - so you can be confident in the quality of your new garden building. The walls are constructed using 12mm Shiplap tongue and groove cladding to form strong, hardwearing and premium panels. The roof and floor are cut from quality tongue and groove boards. The roof is covered with heavy-duty mineral felt for added weatherproof protection.

    Robust fixtures and fittings are all supplied as standard, alongside our detailed instructions and manufacturer’s recommendations, to ensure a simple and stress-free assembly. This building comes with a 10-year anti-rot guarantee, alongside a 12-month manufacturer’s warranty. Preservative and waterproof treatment are required to maintain your building and the anti-rot guarantee. You must construct this garden building on a firm and level base.

    Let us do all the hard work for you. This building is available ready painted and installed, just select the option before you add the building to your basket. Choose your favourite colour from one of our serene shades, and your painted garden building will have a stylish and eye-catching look, with a great quality finish.  

    We use premium, fully opaque paint that offers exceptional durability with a low maintenance finish. The paint not only looks great, but also acts as a preservative to protect against weathering, UV degradation, mould and fungal attack.

    Important Information

    What does Dip Treated mean?

    During our manufacturing process, we dip treat all our entire range of summerhouses. This involves applying a water based colourant to your garden building, protecting your summerhouse 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.


    Where can I find the exact measurements of my garden building?

    Before purchasing your new summerhouse 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.


    How will my new summerhouse arrive?

    Your new summerhouse 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 and How to Build a Shed advice pages for plenty of helpful tips.

    We strongly advise if you are planning on using a third party installer to construct your summerhouse that you do not book their services until you receive 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 summerhouse 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 summerhouses are delivered unpainted.


    Does my new garden shed come with any guarantees?

    As standard, this summerhouse 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.


    What does my 10 Year Anti-rot Guarantee cover?

    All of our Dip Treated garden buildings benefit from our 10 Year Anti-rot Guarantee. This will cover your garden building against fungal decay as long as the conditions of the gurantee have been followed.

    These conditions include treating your new garden building with a high-quality timber preservative and waterproof top coat.Treatments of this sort should be applied as soon as your garden building has been constructed, and reapplied annually thereafter. This will enable you to maintain your 10 Year Anti-rot Guarantee and will keep your summerhouse in tip-top condition!

    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.

    For more information on our 10 Year Anti-rot Guarantee please refer to our Terms & Conditions.


    Does my new summerhouse require planning permission?

    We work hard to design all of our garden buildings to adhere to the planning permission guidelines. However, we cannot guarantee that planning permission will not be required. Therefore, before constructing your garden building we advise checking with your local authorities.


    What base do I require for my new garden shed?

    A flat, level base is essential when building your new summerhouse. We recommend the following bases; concrete, slab paving, ground-level bearers or a wooden frame.

    Prior to building your summerhouse be sure to check your base is level in both directions. If the base of your summerhouse 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


    How do I care for my new summerhouse?

    To ensure your summerhouse stands the test of time it’s important to follow the guidance outlined in your building’s product instructions and Manufacturer’s Recommendations.

    We have also created these super handy Maintenance Guides to help you take care of your summerhouse. They are full of our expert advice and useful tips so you can enjoy your summerhouse for years to come!

    However, if you do need any further support, don't worry we are on hand to help. Just give our friendly Customer Service Team a call on 0800 029 1000.


    How do I care for my summerhouses Styrene windows?

    A clear film is used to protect your Styrene windows. Once summerhouse 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. "
