            Why Others Tell us they Love the Orchid

            The Orchid is a popular summerhouse with those who are looking for something a bit different. With its stylish curved roof, an attractive and unique feature you are unlikely to find on many other summerhouses, the Orchid provides that special something that makes it stand out in the summerhouse crowd. The high quality joinery windows and double doors provide another wonderful feature of this summerhouse that you will struggle to find on other manufacturers’ products. Plus, the almost fully glazed front elevation and two side windows allow in buckets of natural light which, when combined with the generous headroom inside, make the interior feel spacious and airy. Two of these windows are also opening, meaning you can control the temperature inside in all weathers. Our customers often like to add their own personal touch by painting their summerhouses and, as you can see from our images of the Orchid, they look fantastic when painted. Shire recommends you use Protek paint, available from elbec in a wide variety of colours. By using Protek Royal Exterior, you can make the Orchid look exactly how you want it while adding extra protection to the timber. Whether you love bold, bright colours or a more natural wood finish, Protek have a colour to suit any taste.


            The Orchid boasts a number of features that secure its status as a summerhouse of real quality. Its 12mm thick shiplap tongue and groove cladding will ensure that the interior is nicely sealed away from the elements. This construction also promotes the effective run off of water and ensures the Orchid is fully weatherproofed. The Orchid also boasts a 12mm tongue and groove floor, a high quality feature that provides an impressive load capacity, so you can adorn your summerhouse with heavier items of furniture. The roof is made from 8mm thick plywood which is protected by heavy duty green mineral roofing felt, all of which ensures protection against the weather, damp and rot. The building gets its strength from its sturdy 34x34mm framing, so you can rest assured that you have purchased a summerhouse that will last. With ¾ glazed double doors, two opening windows and two fixed windows as part of the package, loads of natural light floods into the Orchid and gives wide open views of your garden. The double doors open wide for easy access and can be securely locked with the mortise lock and key. This whole package is protected by a 10 year anti-rot guarantee, so you know it will be a feature of your garden for years to come. We’re pleased to offer the option of booking our dedicated professionals who will assemble your summerhouse quickly and correctly. However, you can choose to use the comprehensive instructions included with the shed and construct it yourself.

            About the Timber

            You will be impressed by Shire's use of natural products and their environmental credentials. A high quality timber shed starts with high quality timber, so it is important to know exactly what timber is being used. The most commonly used timber for garden buildings is pine (pinus) as this is widely available for a very cheap price, however all of Shire's garden buildings are constructed using high quality spruce (picea) and is sourced from Scandinavia under strict FSC guidance. Spruce is more durable than pine and provides a higher quality finish. This timber is slow grown unlike fast grown British and Eastern Europe's timber, being slow grown timber means a tighter grain, less sap and with far fewer knots. The timber used on Shire's products is therefore a more durable timber that will last much longer than other timbers. Spruce is therefore the timber of choice for companies such as Shire who always look to produce the best garden building.

Shire recommends that you apply a water based top coat. This will protect the timber from weathering on your summerhouse making it last longer and will need to be repeated accordingly in relation to the manufacturer's instructions. Shire recommends Protek Royal Exterior wood finish, available from elbec in many different colours. This is also a great way to refresh the look of your summerhouse over time or personalise it to your liking.
