            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.

            Why Others Tell us they Love the Avance

            Lovers of a stylish, modern summerhouse look are often drawn to the Avance. With its simple yet eye-catching design complete with ¾ length glazed double doors, you are given a contemporary feel that so many of our customers love. Its slightly overhanging roof is another striking feature, adding extra charm to the summerhouse as well as a handy little bit of shelter or shade. The generous roof height and the glazed double doors provide an interior that feels airy and open, ensuring that spending your time relaxing in the Avance is a real pleasure. It is also hard to beat the attractive timber finish of a wooden garden building and there is no doubt you will notice the quality of your summerhouse as soon as you step inside. Our customers often like to add their own personal touch by painting their summerhouses and they look fantastic in any colour. Shire recommends that you use Protek paint, available from elbec in a wide variety of colours. By using Protek Royal Exterior, you can make the Avance look exactly how you want it while adding extra protection to the timber.


            Shire products are known for their quality, and the Avance is no exception. The walls of the Avance Summerhouse are constructed from 12mm thick, shiplap tongue and groove cladding. This gives you a strong, sturdy building with an interior that is weather resistant and protected from the elements. Plus, the Avance has a stand out feature in its 12mm thick tongue and groove floor, a high quality specification you will struggle to find on alternative summerhouses in this price bracket. This also ensures a high load capacity, meaning you can adorn your summerhouse with the furniture of your choice without worrying if the floor will be up to the task. Robust 34mm x 34mm framing adds to the sturdiness of the summerhouse and supports an 8mm oriented strand board (OSB) roof that makes sure the interior is well protected. Mineral felt is also included for extra weather resistance and protection against damp and rot. This is all protected by a 10 year anti-rot guarantee, so you can purchase your summerhouse in the knowledge you will be buying a high quality garden building that will last. Featuring wide opening double doors with high quality joinery that are glazed in environmentally friendly styrene, a safer alternative to traditional glass, you have a summerhouse package that is sure to impress for a price that will not break the bank. We’re pleased to offer the option of booking our dedicated professionals who will assemble your summerhouse quickly and correctly. However, you can choose to use the comprehensive instructions included with the summerhouse and construct it yourself.

            About the Timber

            You will be impressed by Shire's use of natural products and their environmental credentials. A high quality timber summerhouse starts with high quality timber, so it is important to know exactly what timber is being used. The most commonly used timber for garden buildings is pine (pinus) as this is widely available for a very cheap price, however all of Shire's garden buildings are constructed using high quality spruce (picea) and is sourced from Scandinavia under strict FSC guidance. Spruce is more durable than pine and provides a higher quality finish. This timber is slow grown unlike fast grown British and Eastern Europe's timber, being slow grown timber means a tighter grain, less sap and with far fewer knots. The timber used on Shire's products is therefore a more durable timber that will last much longer than other timbers. Spruce is therefore the timber of choice for companies such as Shire who always look to produce the best garden building.

            About Shire

            The image gives an example of how you could make your summerhouse look once painted. All Shire summerhouses are supplied pre-treated with a base coat to both sides in a golden brown water based industrial product for protection during manufacture and transit. You must apply a water based top coat of your choice. Shire recommends Protek wood treatment, available from elbec in a wide variety of different colours. This will protect the timber from weathering, making it last longer. The timber treatment will need to be repeated periodically in line with the manufacturer's instructions.

            The Avance also has a more classic, traditional-looking, sister summerhouse: the Lumley. If you think this may interest you, see related products below or click here.

            Customer Reviews

            By Mr M Rugg on 18th September 2014
            "Excellent service, product and prices: A good web site, plenty of choice for any budget. Purchased a Shire Avance summerhouse, we were kept fully updated with the ordering and delivery process by phone and by email. The product was delivered on the morning of the specified day, the chap who delivered it was most efficient, courteous and helpful. The whole thing was polythene wrapped and contained everything needed to erect onto our prepared base. The instructions I found to be very clear and concise. Having painted it and furnished it with a table and a couple of cane chairs, my wife is delighted and we have had encouraging comments from various neighbours. We could not have asked for more. I would recommend Elbec to anyone."
