The 'Ashfield Wing' garden cabin is a delightful and stylish building and with its 'wings' and overhanging roof will become a much loved feature in your garden. You will be able to enjoy those warm summer days with your family in its spacious interior. Included and enhancing its appearance are the Georgian double doors with black antique hinges and the two opening Georgian windows on the front as well as the Georgian opening windows on both sides. This alpine style summerhouse is available in a range of sizes to suit.
These 'Ashfield Wing' Garden Cabins are clad in T&G redwood deal SHIPLAP for long life and NOT the cheap, less durable whitewood normally found on the 'cheap end' summerhouses found elsewhere. Strong internal vertical framework which is 50mm x 38mm (nominal) is standard. This gives the building the strength to resist the extreme weather we sometimes get. Proper T&G wooden boards are used on the floor and roof rather than the chipboard, OSB or 'sheet' materials used on the 'cheaper' summerhouses available elsewhere as that is unsuitable.

How To Guide:- Fixing and Types of Shed Summerhouses Windows
The windows on sheds and summer houses rely on the windows to let light in so are crucial to your enjoyment of your new garden building.

The reason for this is so that you don't end up with leaking windows which can be a nuisance.
There are various ways as to how the windows are secured into place. You will often find that they are 'dry fixed' using timber beading. This is a very good way of keeping your shed or summerhouse dry provided the beading is pushed up tight against the glass.
