The 'Stoke' garden studio is a neat, welcoming retreat which you can share with your family in your garden. Besides the 6 pane Georgian door with black antique hinges & handle and 4 pane Georgian opening window on the side there is a delightful and attractive Georgian bay window on the front which transforms this building to the next level. Adding to the appearance is a 1ft roof overhang as standard or you can add a 2ft 6in or 4ft veranda which adds further charm to the building. Choice of sizes to suit.
These 'Stoke' Garden Studios are clad in long lasting redwood deal T&G SHIPLAP and NOT the cheap and less durable cheap whitewood normally found on other internet sites. There's a sturdy internal vertical framework which is 50mm x 38mm (nominal) in size. This ensures the building will stand up to the worse of our weather. 'Proper' T&G timber boards are used on the roof and floor rather than the cheap and unsuitable chipboard, OSB or 'sheet' materials used on the 'cheaper' buildings available elsewhere. Also for your family's safety toughened glass is used as standard rather than the dangerous (potentially) horticultural glass used on cheaper summer rooms.
The Sapphire 'Stoke' Chalet will be erected for you free of charge and should give you the confidence that it has been installed correctly. This is important for the durability of these buildings. Where it could be possible to save a few pounds elsewhere why take chances with this important job? Just sit back and let our experts take care of it.
We have a summer house display site conveniently located close to the M25 near Guildford. And we normally have at least 2 or 3 examples of the Sapphire summer buildings on display as we believe you should be able to view the quality of our buildings and not just risk looking at a brochure or computer screen. UNLIKE most of our competitors who DON'T give you the opportunity to view at all. WHY?
Started in 1979 our background in garden chalets manufacturing 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'.
