  • 4 x 4 (1.12m x 1.19m) Shire Playhut Playhouse£229.00


            An ideal first playhouse to start their journey in the world of make-believe, this Shire Playhut's smart and simple modern design is a great first step towards independent play. And with safety features included as standard at a wonderfully low price, the kids aren't the only ones who love it.

            Unlike other playhouses in this price bracket, the Playhut comes with a floor included, providing stability and extra insulation for your convenience. There's no compromising on the window either, as it opens and has joinery-style Georgian bars and a window stay for just the right temperature. Both the window and door openwith piano hinges, a great safety feature to protect little fingers. There's also environmentally-friendlystyrene window panes, shatter resistant and safer than traditional glass, for extra peace of mind.

            The Shire Playhut Playhouseis made from a high-grade shiplap pine in a sturdy tongue and groove construction, meaning it is better sealed from the elements, as well as making it more aesthetically pleasing. The floor and roof are constructed from solid sheet. Oriented Strand Board (OSB).

            This Shire playhouse is suppliedwith a dip-treated base coat as standard, with a top coat available as an option for a stronger andgolden brown finish. The Playhut does not come pre-painted, giving you a blank canvas to tailor to the children's desires. The manufacturer recommends applying a water-based top coat of your choice, preventing the timber from weathering and therefore making the playhouse last longer. We offer a range ofProtek Royal Exterior Wood Finishtreatments, available in a number of natural stains and colours, which is ideal for protecting your playhouse.

            The Shire Playhut Playhouse is supplied flat-packed for ease of handling and assembly. All fittings and felt are included in the price, with clear, easy-to-follow instructions, though you can choose to add assembly if desired.

            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 Playhouses are made from metric measurements. We would recommend that the base is at least 50mm bigger in each direction.
