If you want to make your garden more appealing for enjoying the 'great outdoors' you can do a lot worse than investing in this 'Oakwood' octagonal summerhouse. This is the perfect answer and is a place to relax and unwind in the garden away for your busy life. There is a choice of doors and windows so you can choose Georgian, diamond leaded or square leaded windows - it's your choice. There is also shingle roof tiles in a range of colours so again you can decide which colour is right for you. Two sizes and a 'stretched version'.
These 'Oakwood' Octagonal Summerhouses are clad in durable, long lasting redwood deal T&G SHIPLAP and NOT the cheap inferior whitewood normally found elsewhere and will last a long time. The internal vertical strong & thick framework is 50mm x 38mm (nominal) ensures that the building will stand up to the worse that 'Mother Nature' can throw at it. T&G 'proper' timber boards are used on the roof & floor and not the cheap & unsuitable chipboard, OSB or 'sheet' materials used on the 'cheap and nasty' versions available elsewhere. To ensure your family's safety toughened glass is used as standard rather than the potentially dangerous horticultural glass used on other cheap garden rooms.
FREE assembly is included with this Sapphire 'Oakwood' Summer Room as standard. This is even more important on an octagonal building and provides the confidence that it has been erected correctly. This is crucial for the long life of these buildings. It may be possible to save a few pounds elsewhere buying a 'cheap' summer house but these are specialised buildings and very hard to build correctly. Don't take chances - just sit back and let our experts take care of it.
Conveniently located just off the M25 near Guildford our garden buildings display site is available for you view examples of the Sapphire garden buildings range but we don't normally have this model on display but you can see least 2 or 3 examples of the Sapphire buildings on display as we believe you should be able to view the quality of our buildings. Don't risk just buying by looking at a brochure or computer screen. UNLIKE most of our competitors who DON'T give you the opportunity to view at all.

What Everybody Ought to Know About Garden Buildings Floors
As garden sheds and summerhouses floors are very important to the life of your new building you need to be very careful in your choice of garden sheds manufacturers. Besides the type of materials used, many of which are NOT suitable for outdoor use, you need to consider various other things to ensure your new garden shed will stand the test of time.
