The Classic Summerhouse is a simple, octagonal summer-use garden building that is hand-built in our Norfolk based factory.
Octagonal in shape, it is available in 1 size, 2.4 x 3.0m, with a choice of 6 paint colours.

Our Classic Summerhouse is available in 1 size:
2.4 x 3.0m (8 x 10ft)
There are windows in four out of the eight sides, as well as in the double doors to provide plenty of light inside this octagonal den.
The windows are all made from 4mm toughened safety glass. They are fixed as standard, but you can choose to have the two side windows opening. Opening windows will be finished with polished brass furniture.
The windows are plain as standard, but you can choose to have leaded windows to add more style and character to the building.
There are six paint colours to choose from our Classic Paint range: Seagrass, Moss, Cotton, Stone, Smoke or Coal, which give an opaque coverage and will add a splash of colour to your building.
The Classic Summerhouse is an unlined summer-use building; however, we have added an option to allow our customers to paint the inside of their summerhouse.
As standard, the inside of your Classic Summerhouse will be unpainted, but you can also choose to have it painted in the same colour as the outside of your building. If you choose this option, the interior walls and ceiling will be painted.
All our buildings require a level, solid concrete base of the correct size.
The single most important part of installing a garden building is the base. Bases must be:
- Level within a 6mm tolerance to ensure the longevity of your building
- Of the correct size (please follow the base plan we send you)
A concrete base supports your building in the best possible way, adding longevity, as well as creating a substantial distance between your building and surface water.
We can supply a 100mm deep reinforced concrete base ready for your building, laid by our professionals, in advance of your building being installed by us. The site must be clear and level within 100mm for us to do this.
The base should always be a minimum of 50mm out of the ground to prevent surface water or puddles affecting your building i.e. rotting it.
The base you have must be made to the plans we give you when you order your building, whether we install the base, or you get a trusted builder to do it for you.
Bases for larger buildings, and in particular garages, need to be built to exact dimensions - we create special base drawings for our garages, since they sit directly on the concrete base and must be anchored into place.
Please note: If you intend to fully or partially surround the building base with hard paving we strongly suggest the installation of a French drain between the paving and base to prevent rain bouncing off the hard surface and driving up under the building, which in turn could cause damp and rot. A French drain is a simple small trench, dug around your building and filled with aggregate that will allow surface water to drain away.
Always get your garden building base laid by a professional, whether that is us, or a local builder you trust.
We constantly strive to ensure all our materials and techniques are the best that we can source and provide. We lead the market in producing exceptional quality timber buildings. Couple this with our personal and bespoke service and you will be totally delighted with your building.

As our business is very much dependant on our reputation in providing an excellent product and service, our customer care is exceedingly important to us and you will find that we very much pride ourselves on this. From the design stage, right through to installation, providing the best possible service is our number one priority.
Each building we make is designed and built to order, which means that we can make the building in such a way that it will fit through restricted access areas and be installed exactly where the building is required; however, if you have any concerns about the access to your garden, please contact us and we will be able to advise you.
Please also note that our installation team requires a flat, solid and level base to install your building on. If you have any questions about this at all, we will be more than happy to help if you call us on
