This lovely bi fold summer house has a series of folding doors along the front, as well as two 800mm x 800mm windows to either side, to create an open and airy space to relax or work.
Design and Features
Built around a solid 45mm x 70mm frame, this summerhouse is also fully lined and insulated helping to regulate the temperature in all weathers. The exterior is finished in pressure treated shiplap, with all fixing points and screw heads filled and sanded, giving a smooth finish this was given a splash of colour and extra protection, using Sadolin Supadec in a warm mushroom colour.
The interior is finished with 9mm treated far eastern ply, painted in a clean bright white. The roof is covered with felt shingles, an attractive alternative to traditional felt which is just as hard wearing as traditional felt sheeting.
Construction and Installation
Built in sections in our Devon workshop, we installed a concrete plinth to provide a sturdy base before installing this summerhouse at the customer’s home. Electrics were installed, including spotlights and sockets ready to be connected to the main power supply after installation. All of our summerhouses are hand built by our team of carpenters. All of our doors and windows are built by us with the highest attention to detail throughout.

When we moved into our bungalow, we had a vision of the summerhouse we wanted at the top of a very boring grassy slope. We came to see you and tried to explain what we wanted. With your woodworking talent you were able to create our dream. The summerhouse exceeds our expectations and we are so glad that we were introduced to you.
You and your team worked through horrendous weather and long hours to achieve the finished summerhouse. The humping of bucket loads of concrete up to the top of the garden in the cold wind and rain for the base was a feat in itself. Getting the parts up to the top was a huge effort. The whole experience must have been a nightmare for you, but your persistence paid off. The enjoyment we are going to have in the coming years is yet to be seen, but we can assure you we will enjoy!!We cannot thank you enough or express how pleased we are with our summerhouse.
