            Upgrade your garden with the Cali 16 x 8 Pent Garden office, a sleek, modern summerhouse with versatility and style. Its pent roof and fully glazed double doors provide a bright and spacious interior, making it a perfect choice for a chic office space.

            This high-quality wooden summerhouse offers ample space that can be transformed into an office area, a relaxing seating area, or a gym space with ease. Its fully glazed double doors provide excellent ventilation and natural light. At the same time, the engineered wood board with a cedar finish ensures superior resistance to damages like buckling, peeling, cracking, and chipping.

            The summerhouse is also treated with advanced formulas of adhesive resins, water-resistant waxes, and zinc borate to provide resistance against fungal decay and insect damage. The interior cladding comprises a moisture-resistant MDF board with an Oxford profile finish. At the same time, the walls and roof are insulated with YBS Airtec Double insulation to keep the interior at a comfortable temperature.

            The tongue and groove flooring comes with 25mm Celotex insulation and a herringbone vinyl finish for added strength and a high-end look. The summerhouse also features handcrafted joinery on the windows and doors, with an option to choose UPVC or aluminium windows and doors in anthracite grey, black, or white. Choosing this option will extend the delivery time. These options will reduce the door height slightly, and prices are available on request.

            With all these features, the Cali 16 x 8 Pent Garden office is a wise investment for any garden. Professional installers will handle the installation but prepare a firm and level base before delivery. Experience a high-end garden room that's not only stylish but also safe and comfortable to use.

            Your Dream Space: Luxurious Building with Exquisite Pre-Painted Finish

            Choose a mix of your favourite colours or select hues that complement each other. The Cali is supplied factory painted internally and externally in one of these available colours: Aegean, Anthracite, Champagne, Coastal Blue, Dark Brown, Green Tea, Gull Grey, Lime Green, Rustic Brown, Sage Green, Silver Birch and Vanilla Cream.  You can choose a different colour for the inside and outside. Choose a mix of your favourite colours or select hues that complement each other.

            Gorilla Ground Screws

            Unlike conventional foundations, ground screws, typically 1050mm and 1200mm in length, offer a quick and clean installation process. By eliminating the need for digging and concrete, ground screws avoid the associated mess and disruption, while also being a more economical option. For more details, please refer to the 'Choose Additional Options' section above.

            About Your Order:

            The Shire Garden Office Pod is a British-made garden building made from FSC® certified timber. You will get a low-carbon footprint summerhouse made from ethically sourced materials. It comes with a 10-year warranty. 

            Price includes assembly by Shire’s professional fitting team. You’ll need a firm and level concrete base. Our manufacturer’s assembly team will contact you requesting images of the base.  Occasionally, they may visit the site to confirm the base is suitable for assembly. Once they have confirmed the base is appropriate, you will be given a delivery/assembly date (delivery and assembly are on the same day).

            Please note: Images depict the summerhouse pre-painted and with furnishings and accessories; these are for illustration purposes only and are not included with your order.

            Garden Office Aftercare:

            The home garden office has been treated using a proprietary zinc borate-based process.  As this is an advanced treatment, it makes it a maintenance-free garden building. If required, you can repaint the building to keep it looking new.

            We provide FREE delivery to most mainland UK postcodes; however, certain regions might have an additional surcharge, and a few postcode areas are outside our coverage. To verify availability and potential surcharges, please use the 'Delivery cost checker' tool above with your postcode.

            Delivery and Installation Timeframes

            We offer same-day delivery and installation services. While we strive to complete the installation on the same day, larger buildings may require more than one day for installation. You can find the estimated delivery and installation lead time for this product on the product page above. Our lead times are calculated in working days (Monday - Friday) and do not include Bank Holidays. These estimates are sourced from the manufacturers and serve as a general guideline, subject to fluctuations in demand. We provide this information in good faith to represent the expected delivery during that period. Please note that some remote areas might experience slightly longer lead times.

            Booking Delivery and Installation

            By entering your postal code in the ‘Pick a delivery day. ENTER POSTCODE’ Box above you can select a delivery/installation date.

            Delivery and Installation Procedure

            Within 5 working days, Shire, the manufacturer, will reach out to you. This communication will be via either a text message or an automated telephone message. If a mobile number is not provided, the latter method will be used. This message will include the necessary website link where you can review and accept the assembly's terms and conditions. Prompt acceptance of these terms is crucial to avoid any potential delays. Once you've agreed to the terms and conditions, Shire will contact you within the specified timeframe to arrange the delivery and assembly date for your order. Please note that this process might take more time during peak seasons. Keep in mind that the installation team will require unobstructed access to your garden, a minimum of 18" clearance around the building, and a solid, level foundation. It's important to know that Shire's installation team cannot bring the building through your home, as they lack the insurance coverage for entering a customer’s property.

            Delivery Day

            The manufacturer, Shire, handles the delivery process. Typically, this item will be delivered using a 17-ton flat-bed vehicle, similar in size to a council refuse lorry. Deliveries are scheduled within the time frame of 7 am to 7 pm."


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