The 'Hatfield' is the starter summer building and its sturdy design enables it to fit neatly into your garden and is a perfect choice for use as a storage building as well as a place to relax. You could also consider this as a playroom for your children as they won't outgrow it unlike many playhouses. It comes complete with a strong ledged & braced door with strong, long lasting zinc hinges as well as two windows on the side as well as two on the front enabling light to pour in. Adding to the appearance is a 1ft roof overhang which adds further charm to the building>
These 'Hatfield' Summer Houses are clad T&G redwood deal SHIPLAP for long life, NOT the cheap and less durable whitewood normally found on 'cheap' summerhouses found elsewhere. The sturdy internal vertical frame is 50mm x 38mm (nominal) in size. This gives the building the strength to stand up to the worse that 'Mother Nature' can throw at it. 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.
This Sapphire 'Hatfield' Summer Room will be erected for you free of charge giving you the confidence that it has been assembled correctly. This is vital for the long life of these buildings.
