Description

Our 12ft x 8ft Wessex Summerhouse creates the perfect spot for entertaining family and friends or simply somewhere to relax with a good book during the summer. Featuring antique style hinges and fixtures and Georgian bars across the windows, this summerhouse offers a traditional and stylish look.

Made using 12mm Shiplap, also known as tongue & groove, the walls of this garden room are designed to keep water and draughts firmly at bay, while providing a robust and long lasting construction. With fully glazed double doors opening out onto the sheltered veranda, this summerhouse features a great place for enjoying the summer weather while being shaded from the sun. The vast interior is spacious with plenty of room for large furniture while four large windows allow the building to flood with light, creating a bright and welcoming space.

Thick 2” x 1” wooden framing provides support for the panels to attach to; this creates a solid structure that can comfortably withstand the British weather conditions! Hard wearing tongue and groove boards construct the roof and the floor of this building which offer a premium and heavy duty finish. The roof is covered with high quality mineral roofing felt which will give your building further protection from the elements. A lock and key are supplied as standard to keep your building and belongings securely locked away.

Important Information

Our dip treated summerhouses, once installed, will need treating as soon as possible and on an annual basis in order to receive the 10 year anti rot guarantee*. The summerhouse also includes a 1 year manufacturers guarantee* as standard.

Dip Treated Summerhouses

Our summerhouses are supplied flat packed as DIY kits with full instructions.

It is the customer's responsibility to follow the product instructions and the information outlined within the Manufacturers recommendations.

All of our summerhouses are delivered unpainted. The summerhouses are dressed for display, we don't supply any accessories or shelves featured within the product images.

Our factory applied dip treatment may differ in shade between components as it is simply a basecoat.

Exact product dimensions are supplied on the listing as we do round off the main size of the building in the title in order to make it easier for customers to find, so please be sure to check the item's specific measurements carefully.

Delivery times highlighted with an asterisk (*) refer to working days.

10 Year Anti-Rot Guarantee

Our dip treated summerhouses come with a 10 year anti rot guarantee. Anti-rot protection guards against fungal decay. The guarantee does not cover movement, twisting, warping or splitting of timber products over time.

during manufacture we apply a water based colourant for protection whilst in storage and transit. This treatment is not a preservative therefore the product will require a preservative and waterproofing top coat application as soon after construction as possible.

In order to keep your summerhouse in tip top shape and maintain the 10 year anti rot guarantee, it will need re-treating at least annually. Only high quality timber preservatives should be used and applied in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations. This must be done at least annually to preserve the 10 year anti rot guarantee. For more information please refer to the Waltons T&C's.

1 Year Manufacturer's Guarantee

Subject to the conditions set out in the T&C's (Section 8) the Seller warrants that the Goods will correspond with their specification at the time of delivery and will be free from defects in material and workmanship for a period of 12 months.

Planning Permission

Whilst we work hard to design all of our garden buildings to adhere to planning permission guidelines, we cannot guarantee that planning permission will not be required. Therefore we advise that it is always best to check with your local authorities before erecting a garden building.

Aftercare

We want you to enjoy the use of your new summerhouse for many years. To ensure this, it is important your summerhouse is protected at the start and maintained during its life. If you're planning a DIY project, please read our Self-Installation & How to Build a Shed advice pages before you start.

BASE

All long-lasting summerhouses will have been built on a solid and level base, either concrete, slabs, a wooden frame or ground level bearers. A flat, level base is essential, for more information go to our How to Build a Shed Base guide.

If your summerhouse is not level and square when built, it will twist and warp with the natural movement of the wood. The first signs of this are when the doors or windows stop opening and closing properly. You may get issues with the roof and potential gaps in the panels which will allow water in, there may be flex in the floor and probably creaking. Check your base is level in both directions and adjust prior to the build. It will be really difficult to adjust afterwards.

Glazing

Our styrene windows are protected using a clear film which will need to be removed after you've installed and treated the summerhouse. This can be removed easily by scoring round the edge of the window and peeling back the plastic covering.

All Waltons summerhouse windows are designed to fit well, but over time and with the movement of wood, small gaps can appear. Help to prevent this by sealing your windows with a silicone sealant. You can do this either when you build your summerhouse, or add it to an existing one. We've created this video Protect Your Shed - Silicone Window Sealant for guidance.

We've also created these handy Maintenance Guides to help you make the most out of your summerhouse, for years to come. Should you require any further advice, you can contact our Customer Service Team on 0800 029 1000 and select Option 3.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I choose a delivery slot?

We will contact you on the morning of your confirmed delivery date by email and/or SMS with a 2-hour delivery time slot. We aim to meet these delivery times but during busy periods, deliveries may take a little longer, however we always work hard to keep delays to a minimum.

What access is needed for my delivery?

Our drivers are only contracted to provide kerbside drop offs and deliveries. They will NOT bring any of our orders through your home. A driver may offer to take an order further; for instance a back garden but this is ONLY at their own discretion. If you have added our installation service to your order please be aware that they will require full access to your garden. Our installation team will not bring a building through your home as they are not covered by insurance to enter a customer's home. If you have any questions about access or you live in a restricted access zone please contact our sales team on 0800 029 1000. Our team will be able to provide you with more information and specific building information.

Will I need to help my delivery driver?

Our drivers DO NOT need your help during a delivery. They will not ask for your help and they can manage all the items themselves. We are not insured to cover any customer injuries and therefore we ask you NOT to help or try and help our drivers while they make a delivery.
