Your kids will love the high quality Shire Hobby playhouse; the beautiful traditional design will give your children or grandchildren a special place to play and learn. The canopy comes as standard and gives this summerhouse added appeal, making it a good addition to any garden. 

Please note - Due to the high quality of the playhouses they are quite large, this means they will not be able to fit through a house. Please ensure you have access available around a side passage or alternative access to the desired area where you intend to build it. Delivery will be kerbside unless assembly is chosen as an option.

Treatment: All Shire playhouses are supplied pre-treated with a base coat to both sides in a golden brown water based industrial product (colour can vary from the picture shown). Shire the manufacturer recommends that you apply a water based top coat of your choice. This will protect the timber from weathering on your shed making it last longer and will need to be repeated accordingly in relation to the manufacturer's instructions.

Supplied flat packed for ease of handling and assembly. All fittings and felt are included in the price with clear easy to follow instructions.
