Make the Most of Your Playhouse:

The Mercia Sunflower Playhouse is a traditional wooden playhouse that your kids will instantly love. The compact design will fit nicely on a small patio and can be tucked into a corner of the garden or placed in a prominent position. The garden playhouse is unpainted, so you can make it even more fun with your colour choices for the finish. Let the kids pick colours for the inside, and you can decorate it with colours that complement each other for the cladding, trim, and railings. However you finish it, the playhouse will be something that will create lots of happy memories.

About Your Order:

The Mercia Sunflower Playhouse is a UK-made playhouse made from FSC® certified timber. You will receive a high-quality wooden garden playhouse with a low carbon footprint. It’s made from ethically sourced materials, and the practical design makes it easy to assemble. It will take two adults to build, so elbec recommends enlisting the help of a friend. The playhouse comes with a 10-year anti-rot guarantee and a 12-month manufacturer's warranty.

Hard-wearing fixings, high-quality roof felt, and the manufacturer's assembly recommendations are all included. Premium Shiplap boards are attached to the solid internal framing to make hard-wearing and weather-resistant panels.

Please note: Images may depict furnishings and accessories; these are for illustration purposes only and are not included with your order. The Mercia Sunflower Playhouse is only suitable for children aged 36 months or above and must be sited outdoors

Playhouse Aftercare:

The Sunflower playhouse is unpainted and has a water-based base coat for protection during transport. You must apply a preservative and waterproofing topcoat to protect your playhouse immediately after installation. These treatments will maintain a high-quality finish and are a requirement for the 10-year anti-rot guarantee. A 1-year manufacturer's warranty is included.

To protect and treat the playhouse, elbec recommends Protek wood treatment. Browse our Protek Royal Exterior Wood Finish Paint range to find the best wooden playhouse paint colour to add your preference to the finish.

Booking Delivery

You will be required to book your delivery date at the time of placing your order (except for Metal Shed). Our 'Request a Delivery Date' service is available to the majority of areas and you'll find that the majority of the UK postcodes are FREE but some areas may incur a delivery surcharge and some postcodes are not covered at all. Select a 'requested delivery date' by entering your postcode in the 'Request a delivery date' section above. You will also be notified at this time if your area incurs a surcharge or delivery is not covered in your area.

Prior to Delivery

On the morning of your delivery date, you'll be sent an update by text with an estimated 2-hour delivery slot (this update can only be provided where a mobile number has been supplied on the billing address section at the time of checkout) together with a link to the manufacturer delivery portal where you'll be able to track your order.

Please note: Mercia Metal Sheds ONLY - your order is delivered by a courier you will not be notified prior to the delivery. If you are not in on the day of the delivery you will be carded and asked to contact the courier to arrange a new mutual delivery date. The estimated delivery lead time for Mercia's Metal sheds is identified on the product for the metal shed. Lead times are on working days (Monday - Friday) excludes Bank Holidays. These estimated lead times are provided by the manufacturer. Some remote areas will take a little longer.

Upon Delivery

Your order is delivered either kerbside or driveway and will be delivered on either a 3.5T, 7.5T or 18T Lorry. Unfortunately due to health and safety and insurance liabilities the driver will not be able to take your goods around to the back of your property but may upon request place the product at the side of the house if there are no access or restriction issues. We would not risk damaging your property whilst delivering a product to an unsafe location. Unfortunately, we will not be able to go through your property.

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.


Orders with Assembly 

The lead time for our installation option is around 12 weeks from the date of order. With the installation option, the majority of orders will have their delivery and installation on separate days; there will be a small number of orders which will have delivery and installation on the same day. You will be advised by the manufacturer's installation team which category your order falls into.

Depending on the installation option for your order, you will be contacted within the delivery timescale and given a date for either delivery/assembly on the same date or a separate date for delivery and assembly.
