Summerhouse in Dorchester, Dorset
We have installed this Cley Summerhouse
in the garden of a customer residing in Dorchester, Dorset as a relaxing room. Our Cley has a classic shape with a hipped roof and windows in 3 out of its 4 sides, which is why it was chosen by our customer, as they wanted a traditional-looking building. It was handcrafted by skilled craftsmen inside our Norfolk factory before being delivered and installed at our customer’s address by members of our installations team, which we included in the price of all our buildings.
From as small as 1.8 x 2.4m to as large as 3.6 x 4.8m, and plenty of sizes in between, our Cley is available in a range of standard sizes. Our customer has opted for our 3.0 x 3.6m size, with the shiplap clad exterior painted in Cream and cedar shingle tiles laid on the roof. Our customer chose to have leaded windows on their Summerhouse, and they also opted to have them double glazed as extra. These exterior design options are only just some of the features available. For your building you could choose plain or Georgian windows, you could also opt for a slate effect tile option for the roof, and you may even like to upgrade to a Farrow & Ball shade for your exterior paint colour.
Everything was well explained and communication was constant and timely. The sales team at Hilliers Hermitage went out of their way to come to our garden and show us how our ordered Cley Summerhouse would fit. The installation team - Craig and Mark - were wonderfully helpful with their suggestions for how to position internal fittings, as was the electrician.

Our Cley Summerhouse benefits from having the walls and ceiling lined and insulated so it can be used throughout the year. You may also want to consider having floor insulation added for additional comfort, just like this customer has. Our customer also chose to add electrics to their building so it could be supplied with power and lighting. To give the interior a cosy, warm feel, the walls are lined with natural matchboard.
