Pressure Treated Bearers and Tongue & Groove Floor Boards

There are no hidden costs, our summerhouses come with 19mm tongue and groove timber floor boards that sit on top of pressure treated floor bearers. We pressure treat our bearers to reduce the chances of rot and insect infestation, as these are constantly in touch with the ground. The pressure treatment allows us to provide a lengthy 10-year guarantee on the floor bearers. The foundation that the summerhouse is going to be built on is incredibly important. Therefore, the floor bearers come at no extra cost as stability and durability is a key priority for us.

The rest of the summerhouse does not come pressure treated. This is so you can personalise your garden building using our wide selection of treatment. Enjoy transforming and designing your summerhouse however you wish. Personalise and add your own unique touch, making it the perfect place for you and your family to unwind.

Easy to Build Panel System

We have made construction easier for you with our summerhouses as the shiplap walls come supplied in panels, meaning they are al cut to size. Theses panels easily slot in between the solid corner posts, ensuring installation of the summerhouse is simple and efficient. Additions to the summerhouse, such as windows and doors all come pre-assembled, meaning they only require slotting in.

Large Windows and French Doors

To add to the customisable design of the summerhouses, we provide sculpted Georgian bars for the windows and doors. It’s up to you whether you use the bars to create a traditional looking summerhouse or leave them off to create a modern, streamlined feature within your garden. The bars are easy to remove for maintenance, or if you decide to change the look of your summerhouse.

To keep your summerhouse secure, the doors come with a strong cylinder lock. For added safety, and to ensure enough light seeps through the summerhouse. all windows and doors use clear 4mm toughened glass. Our summerhouses all fit beautifully into the corner, or equally can sit in the heart of the garden, providing an enjoyable view from the main house or from the summerhouse. In order to avoid any intruders being able to force their way into your summerhouse from the outside, all windows are internally beaded.

Roof Features

Each of our summerhouses are under 2.5m in height, so it’s less likely that you’ll need planning permission. With a roof made using 19mm tongue and groove timber boards, a Dunster House summerhouse is robust enough to hold roof felt or roof shingles to finish off the summerhouse and create a weatherproof roof. The summerhouse has high internal eaves giving a spacious and airy feel inside.

Slow Grown Spruce

Our summerhouses are made from high-quality slow-grown spruce timber, a far better wood than pine or mixed timbers. There are many properties of slow grown spruce that outshine other alternatives.

Spruce is known to be more durable and stable as it expands and contracts a lot less than pine. Less expansion or contraction will minimise the gaps between the timber, particularly as timber changes throughout each season. Choose a summerhouse that is made to last! Slow grown spruce is more resilient to warps and splits compared to others. There are fewer knots and sap produced.

Due to the nature of the timber being a whitewood the likelihood of it discolouring is far less, making the overall look of the summerhouse a lot more attractive. Mixing timbers is less costly for the manufacturer, however, the summerhouse has a combination of redwood and whitewood taking away the high-quality standard of the product.

We dont use cheap pine

No need to worry about putting it together! We provide all the fixings and instructions you need.

All in all, we’ve done everything we can to create a heavy-duty, easy to build, stylish summerhouse that is perfect for use in any garden. Learn more about how to maintain a summerhouse.
