            Make the Most of Your Summerhouse:

            About Your Order:

            The Shire Orchid Summerhouse is a British-made garden building made from FSC® certified timber. You will get a low-carbon footprint summerhouse made from ethically sourced materials. The practical design makes it straightforward to assemble. It comes with a 10-year anti-rot guarantee and a 12-month manufacturer's warranty. 

            Superior fixings, high-quality roof felt, and optional assembly from the manufacturer is available.  The timber boards attach to a solid internal framing to make hard-wearing and sturdy panels. The Orchid is flat-packed for easy handling and assembly.

            Please note: Images may depict furnishings and accessories; these are for illustration purposes only and are not included with your order. The summerhouse does not come painted.

            Summerhouse Aftercare:

            The summerhouse has timbers that have been dip-treated to protect them during transit. You must apply a preservative and waterproofing topcoat immediately after installation. Using the treatment after installation, followed by consistent annual treatment of the garden summerhouse, will maintain the high-quality finish and is a requirement of the 10-year anti-rot guarantee. A 1-year manufacturer's warranty is included as standard.

            To treat the summerhouse, elbec recommends Protek wood treatment. Browse our Protek Royal Exterior Wood Finish Paint range to find the best paint colour to add your personalised finish.  In the options section, we’ve also included popular colours and a Wood Preserver+ for use underneath your colour choice.

            Upon Delivery
            Delivery is made by Shire the manufacturer. Delivery of this item is typically made by a 17 ton flat-bed (similar size to a council refuse lorry). Delivery is typically between 7am and 7pm. The delivery drivers are only insured to deliver to kerb side or driveway. We would not risk damaging your property whilst delivering a product. Unfortunately we will not be able to go through your property. Deliveries are hand-balled off by the driver.

            We would recommend against arranging for a third party to install the building before it's been delivered and checked that all parts are present, as we cannot be held liable for any third-party costs.

            Installation option
            If you are choosing the installation option after placing your order you’ll be contacted within 5 working days by Shire the manufacturer either by a text message or automated telephone message (the latter if a mobile number is not supplied). This message will supply you with the name of the website to go on to where you will be required to accept the terms and conditions for assembly. Any delay in accepting these terms and conditions may affect your timescale. Once you have accepted these terms and conditions you will be contacted during the timescale with a date for the delivery/assembly of your order. The installation option will extend your lead time by up to 15-25 working days. This may take longer during seasonal periods. Please be aware that the installation team will require full access to your garden, 18" clearance all around the building and a firm and level base. Shire's installation team will not bring a building through your home as they are not covered by insurance to enter a customer’s home.


            Please note: all imperial measurements are approximate, and the Shire Summerhouses are made from metric measurements. We would recommend that the base is at least 50mm bigger in each direction.
