Why You Should Choose This Ashby Summerhouse for YOUR Garden

Why You Should Choose This Ashby Summerhouse for YOUR Garden

Summer Houses Designed for the Life of Today

The Ashby Summerhouse is a stylish summerhouse with his elegant deep windows on the front complemented with the double doors which can be thrown open when our wonderful summer arrives (well we can dream!). Very well constructed using redwood deal T&G shiplap cladding, with an option for loglap effect, and built on a very strong frame.

These Ashby summerhouses will stand 'the test of time' unlike many of the 'cheap' summerhouses available elsewhere which use the cheap inferior whitewood. With the roofs being made from 'proper' T&G timber boards and not the cheap and nasty OSB boards, chipboard or wafer board (often described as 'sheet' materials to mislead you) used on the cheap summerhouses. Covered in heavy quality green mineral roofing felt for long life. There are also options for verandas to extend the usability of these lovely buildings

FREE Assembly is Standard - Saving you Precious Time for more Interesting Pursuits.

Besides the high spec of these summer houses, which comes as standard, you will find that to make your life even easier we will assemble these buildings free of charge. No struggling with large summerhouse panels and hoping you don't hurt your back or pull any muscles. No laying the felt out hoping you do a good job and that the roof won't leak - this is all taken care off for you. You can be confident that your new summerhouse will serve its purpose of providing you with a pleasurable place to spend some time away from our busy world.

View at our Summerhouse Display Site for Peace of Mind

The internet is a great place to find garden buildings but you will find that not many summerhouse firms allow you to see their products before buying. This can be a little worrying (at the least). Until your new summerhouse arrives you are relying on the summerhouse company to deliver what they display on their web site. And I think we are know that brochures, leaflets and web pages can look brilliant but the 'proof of the pudding' is what is important.

We have a large garden building display site near Guildford where you can see a large range of buildings, including summerhouses. Whilst we don't alawys have the Ashby summerhouse on display we do normally have a Waendal summerhouse as well as a Barton or Wilbye summerhouse. By examining these you can view the attention to details and can see how well made they are, backing up what you see on our web site.

'Peace of Mind' comes as standard with these Ashby Summer Houses. We believe that you should be able to view the quality of our summerhouses and not just rely on a brochure or computer screen - UNLIKE most of the competitors who DON'T give you the opportunity to view at all.

Bespoke Summerhouse to Meet Your Needs and Garden

These Diamond Summerhouses are available in a massive range of sizes to suit YOUR needs and not just a few set sizes with most makers offers. You also have the option to move the doors & windows or add extra windows for a small extra charge so you can see that a quality summerhouse can meets your exact needs at a very good price. With the addition of a veranda or balcony this will throw up new uses for your summerhouse. Add in a partition and a side door and it can combine to be a summerhouse and storage shed - how good is that?

Our background in summerhouse manufacturing, starting in 1979, gives us the know how about the quality of materials which should be used. Our Ethos is 'Make to a Standard - NOT down to a price'.

We also can supply large summerhouses as well as contempory, modern and bespoke buildings.

Metal sheds, steel buildings, storage boxes, caravan tidies and galvanised bike storage How To Choose A Garden Shed Door

It may seem a strange subject how to choose a garden shed door but this humble object is vital to your new shed or garden building. If you think about it the shed door is the only part of your garden building which is designed to move, there may be many parts on cheap sheds that move as well but they are not meant to, and so must be made to resist these moving forces for years on end.

In the most basic form the shed door is planks of wood nailed onto a frame. Hinges are attached and then the door is hung on your shed or garden building however you will find the weight of the planks of wood pulling downwards by gravity. This is why it is crucial that the frame has proper bracing designed into it to stop this happening.

There should be a minimum of three ledges, timber batons which are horizontal, and in between them there should be two diagonal braces. The braces help to carry the load of the shed door from the outside of the shed door to the side where the hinges are. - Continue reading -- Delivery of metal sheds and steel buildings throughout the UK, England, Wales, Scotland
