The design of the 'Swansea' garden cabin lend itself for 'working from home' as it gives you a designated working area and a room away from the rest of the house. Solidly constructed it features a Georgian door with attractive arched top and black heavy bolted hinges. Also included are 2 Georgian opening windows and 2 fixed windows - also with arched tops - so there is plenty of light available for work. Adding to the appearance is a 1ft roof overhang which further enhances the look of this building.
These 'Swansea' Garden Cabins are clad in long lasting durable redwood deal T&G SHIPLAP and NOT the cheap inferior whitewood normally found on other internet sites and will last a long time. The strong internal vertical extra thick framework is 75mm x 50mm (nominal) framework which ensure that the building will stand up to the worse that 'Mother Nature' can throw at it. Proper T&G timber boards are used on the floor & roof rather than the cheap & unsuitable chipboard, OSB or 'sheet' materials used on the 'cheap and nasty' summerhouses available elsewhere. For your family's safety toughened glass is used as standard rather than the potentially dangerous horticultural glass used on other cheap garden rooms.
FREE erection is included with this Sapphire 'Swansea' Garden Room as standard. This is very important 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 why take chances with this important job? Just sit back and let our experts take care of it.
Conveniently located just off the M25 near Guildford our garden house display site is available for you view examples of the Sapphire garden buildings range. There is normally at least 2 or 3 examples of these summer 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.
