Feedback: The service from the factory was very good, there was no hanging about on the phone, they had my details within seconds of giving my name and they delivered at exactly the time they said they would. Fantastic service and absolutely love the summerhouse. It looks great. I was amazed at how quick the two guys erected it. Very very happy
Response: Thanks for your feedback. The factory tend to be very efficient, mainly, and 'on the ball'. I delighted everything went fine for you. Thanks for choosing 1st Choice. Regards, Robin
The garden is a natural place for relaxing and enjoying yourself with it being detached from the home. This precious space is often treated as an extension of the home and with the long hot summer days we are having at the moment it's called into use even more. Whether it's for a barbecue with family and friends or socialising with neighbours the garden is the place to be on these precious and barmy summer days.
The garden shed is often an important link in this as the barbecue, garden furniture and many other related items are stored until required although these are often left out during the summer months. Provided care is taken to protect these items from rain and the occasional blustery wind there should be no problem.
If you are lucky enough to have a summer house then this is utilised even more as a place for socialising and will give protection against the hot sun. You will often find that during the winter the summerhouse can become a dumping ground for various items. However during the summer, when this building will meet its original intention, these items will end up back in the shed and this makes sense.
The children of the house can also enjoy the great outdoors if they are lucky enough to have a playhouse in their garden. These delightful buildings can be great for imaginative play with their friends where the children can re-enact and image their parent's lives - hopefully without the alcohol beverages. If you are thinking of a new summer house then 1st Choice has a range of suitable summer houses for London for this purpose.
Even a simple lean to or a sheet tacked to the fence can be a great adventure to children and by providing something as simple as this you are getting your children out into the open and away from the Playstations and Xboxes etc., which can only be a good thing.
Besides the above uses you will find that garden sheds are being used more and more for their owner's hobbies. This extra space enables them to be creative and to be inspired, which in itself, can help the inner soul to gain some peace of mind. This has got to be a good thing.
The garden shed or summerhouse can be adapted to be used as a playhouse but, obviously, the safety of your children are important so try to see the building through their eyes. Whilst it is good for children to try out new experiences, and they learn life lessons by doing so, we, as adults need to look after them.
When I think back to when I was a child in the 60's some of the things I got up to actually makes my blood run cold. I'm sure that other people from that generation had the same experiences. It makes me wonder if it's a good thing to allow children to get 'on with it' or should we ultra careful with them so they don't get into any danger at all. I'm not really sure what the long term answer is.
However the important thing is to enjoy our garden buildings and the out doors as they are important to the overall health and well being. And with the current spell of very hot weather which, according to my memory, was like all summer I enjoyed back in the 60's as a child.. Maybe this is the time we should be making the most of it as this spell will be gone before we know it.
