The charming 7 x 10 Badminton Summerhouse from Shire is certain to add a touch of class to your garden. Its traditional look is right at home in a real range of gardens and it provides a wonderful spot to relax during the summer with loved ones. Alternatively, it could be just the space you need for your hobbies, allowing you to concentrate in the quiet, calming setting of the outdoors. However you decide to use your summerhouse, we are certain the Badminton will help you to make the most of your garden.

A ¾ glazed door and two large windows to either side make the front almost entirely glazed. This allows plenty of light to flood the interior, which makes the it feel extra bright and spacious. Those who are drawn to the Badminton are most often those who prefer the traditional look. The Georgian-style glazing of the windows and doors in addition to the ring latch really set off the classic good looks of the summerhouse too. This is why customers who purchase the Badminton are those who have been won over by its traditional appearance, and there’s even the option to add a veranda for an even more elegant and traditional look.


The Badminton is built to the high standards you can expect from any Shire summerhouse and includes many features you would not normally find in a garden building of this price. The windows and doors have proper, handcrafted joinery, instead of the glued on Georgian glazing bars you will find elsewhere. The glazing is 3mm horticultural glass which can be relied upon to keep its clarity compared to plastics, like styrene, which are often used to glaze garden buildings. All glazing is retained by profiled beading which is pre-mitred, meaning there are no awkward corners to be cut. It also boasts a tongue and groove roof and floor, whereas many garden buildings will use uglier alternatives like OSB. Using tongue and groove also gives a more durable floor and a more weather-resistant roof.

The Badminton has shiplap tongue and groove cladding. This means the individual boards close together tightly to act as a great barrier to the elements. The shiplap profile gives a slight, overlapping “lip” which aids water run-off and increases the summerhouse’s weather protection. The framework on the Badminton, which really gives the building its strength, is a robust 34mm x 34mm, which is as much as 20% thicker than the framing you will find on many alternative garden buildings in this price bracket. The timber used is a continental slow grown timber. Slower grown timber means a tighter grain, extra strength and a longer life.

The Badminton is supplied with detailed instructions and all the fixings needed, including roofing felt, to complete assembly. Alternatively, an assembly service is available if you would like your summerhouse built for you quickly and professionally.


This Badminton Summerhouse is pressure treated. Pressure treated timber is the top of its class when it comes to long-lasting timber products that will resist rot, fungus, insect and weather damage. This building is protected by a 10-year anti-rot guarantee. This includes using an appropriate product to treat your building and carrying out periodic re-treatment. Shire recommends Protek Paint, available to purchase from elbec for a fantastic price. Protek have an excellent range of colours and stains while providing probably the best timber protection you can buy.
