Relax and enjoy your garden in this traditional style summerhouse. It has ¾ glazed styrene double doors and the Shire Avance Summerhouses' lovely characteristics make it suitable for any type of garden hence why this summerhouse is a great addition to any garden.

The tongue and groove floor gives this summerhouse a finished look, making it much sturdier, so it won't be a problem to keep items like tables and chairs inside the summerhouse.

The Tongue and Groove floor makes the Shire Avance Summerhouse stand out from other summerhouses in this price bracket as it is unusual to find such a floor included at this price.

Manufactured in the UK, Shire's summerhouses are renowned for their quality and probably manufacture the best value for money summerhouse in the UK today. This 7ft wide (door side) and 5ft deep summerhouse is great for those that want a place to relax but which does not take up too much garden space.

All the timber used to manufacture the Avance Summerhouse is from sustainable sources, so that you can feel good about buying this summerhouse. Shire garden buildings are made from a high grade ship-lap tongue and groove construction. Tongue and groove construction means the building is better sealed from the elements. The timber used is a continental slow grown timber. Slower grown timber means tighter grain, extra strength and longer life. The Avance Summerhouse comes factory treated in a golden brown and we recommend this is treated again upon arrival.

Supplied flat packed for self assembly.

Framework: A robust planed 34x34mm (1 1/2' x 1 1/2') framework (walls and floor) that gives the building strength.

Floor: The floor is manufactured from high quality 12mm planed tongue and groove matching pattern boarding.

Roof: The roof is constructed from 11mm Oriented Strand Board (OSB) with included roofing felt.

Walls: The walls are constructed using high quality 12mm thick softwood planed tongue and groove shiplap pattern boarding.

Doors: Proper Joinery ¾ Styrene Glazed double doors.

Please Note: The Avance is supplied factory treated, the picture shows how the Lumley Summerhouse could be achieved if painted.

Customer Reviews

"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."
