5 uses of your Garden Summer House

Premium SummerHouseHere is how you can transform your garden Summer House into your little haven:
1. Hobby room – carrying out such activities in your own home can have restricted measures. A Summer House can give you the extra space to relax in a quiet.
2. Children’s play area– If you need your home back due to the children taking over with their toys, a separate space may be the answer!
3. Games room – If you are a ping pong or pool player, a garden summer house may be the perfect place to have one of these. Usually a ping pong or pool table can take up a whole room in your home, so a separate space for this is a good option.
4. Yoga or Gym room – if you carry out a hobby like yoga or want to keep in shape a yoga or gym garden room may be the perfect solution.
5. Home cinema – if like enjoying a film and your garden in the same time then a home cinema for your family and friends may be ideal for you.

The ultimate in build quality! Pick any building from our ‘Premium’ range for added strength and quality.
Our premium summerhouse is constructed with upgraded 50x75mm (3″x 2″) framework which makes the building stronger and far more rigid. This is exceptionally useful if you ever plan to insulate and line your summerhouse, as it will provide a bigger cavity enabling you to install thicker insulation.
Buildings in our premium range also feature a stronger floor. The standard floor is replaced by one that is constructed with 38x75mm (3″x 1½”) framing and sturdier 25mm (1″) tongue & groove floor boarding. This is great if you plan to furnish your summerhouse or store heavy items during the winter months.
In addition, our premium summerhouse is taller than our standard model. The external walls are 174mm (7″) higher to provide further internal headroom and a more spacious interior.

What should you consider when buying a wooden building?

Things tyo consider when you are buying a garden shed of wooden builgin –

1. Quality timber

The better the quality of the timber the  longer the building will last. Phoenix Timber Buildings use quality 4th redwood timber, which is a higher grade than most other manufacturers. It has minimal imperfections compared with its white wood counterpart, and all our wood comes from well managed, sustainable forests.

2. High specification & strength
If your building is built to high specification it will last longer – Our buildings are of the highest specification around. The uprights are spaced close together for added strength (no more than 450mm (1’6”) apart on the floor, and 600mm (2’) on the walls). The building boasts an extremely sturdy roof thanks to the use of substantial timbers and our unique roof design. All our buildings are constructed entirely from PAR timbers (planed all round) eliminating the use of sawn. Click here for further specs for Phoenix Timber Buildings

3. Gutter-ready roof design
Very often the gutter is dismissed or not installed to the correct specification – The side of the roof is finished with a flat fascia and drip rail for the easy attachment of guttering.

4. Heavy duty felt
Our buildings are supplied with heavier weight 38kg green mineral felt as standard, which can provide weather protection for in excess of 5 years.

Dealing direct with us the manufacturer
You not only cut out the middle man, ensuring more
of your money goes into the product, but you get the flexibility to alter virtually any aspect of the building design, just ask! (See a few of our custom designs on adjacent pages).
