Why It’s Never Too Late for a Summer House

A quality summer house offers a beautiful, secure, and comfortable way to enjoy anything that the British weather throws at us – whether that’s a bit of shade in the heat, or reading your book as you listen to the (inevitable) summer rain in your garden.

The beauty of a summer house is the privacy you get in your garden, as well as the extended use throughout the year. They almost act like a conservatory, allowing you to enjoy the outdoors and your garden with some shelter and wind breaks so you’re not completely exposed to the elements.

As the summer weather starts to wind down, this is exactly when you can make the most of your summer house – rather than going indoors as the evenings get chillier, you can enjoy the light evenings comfortably. Our customers have done amazing things with their summer houses, from creating miniature pubs with bars, through to home offices where they can work in peace and privacy without being disturbed by the rest of the family.

An August/September installation means that you can make the most of the cooler months towards the end of summer or even set up a space where your children can do homework or relax with friends separately from the rest of the house – ready in time for the new school year.

If you are not confident in your ability to install the summer house, we offer a professional installation service that can be booked for the same day as your delivery. This way, you can get your new summer house up and running with minimal fuss and effort – you just need to think about whether you want to decorate it, extend WiFi to it, or even start furnishing the interior.
