Summer Houses

What Is A Summer House 


Garden Summer Houses, sometimes known as cedar summer houses,  are more often than not wooden outdoor structures with a tiled or sometimes felted roof. One of the most attractive features of a summer house is the many windows and beautifully glazed doors that make up their exterior, letting in more natural sunlight than any room in a standard house could.

Garden summer houses are becoming an increasingly popular garden feature for those with the space and affordability to do so. When it comes to value for money, the investment you make in a summer house will undoubtedly be made back in the amount of use and enjoyment you get from it.

What Is A Summer House Used For?


A garden summer house can be used for a number of purposes and are quite often built with mixed-use in mind. These buildings are a beautiful extension of your house and provide a space that can be both practical and enjoyable. Ideas for your summer house include: playroom, workspace, garden parties, studio space, yoga studio or just plain and simple storage space. The opportunities really are endless and one of the beauties of a garden summer house is that it’s use can be changed from one year to the next, there is no reason why it can’t be a party space in July and craft room by the time christmas comes around. Despite what the name might suggest, garden and cedar summer houses can in fact be enjoyed year round, with our double glazed summer houses offering both security and insulation to keep the space cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Invest in a summer house and you might just find yourself spending more time there throughout the year than in your own front room.
