This 7 x 5 summerhouse is an attractive alternative to the conventional garden shed, with a bright and airy atmosphere created by its half glazed double doors and two more fixed windows. This ambience is only heightened when the double doors are opened wide, bringing the outdoors inside while providing shelter from sun or rain. It is easy to see why this summerhouse quickly becomes the favourite place in the home to relax among its owners. With plenty of space to pull up a comfy chair, this summerhouse offers an ideal retreat from the stresses of modern living.

Then again, this garden building can be used for much more than leisure. What makes this summerhouse so versatile is that it keeps the more practical functions of any shed when unoccupied. In the colder months of the year, garden items you would like to keep outside the house can be stored safely behind the locked doors. Winter storage classics like unused garden furniture can stay locked up with ease.

The double doors offer easy access to the interior for any larger items you might want to store in your garden, such as bikes or lawn mowers. So, forget any notions of a summerhouse being impractical throughout the year, and start thinking about where it will look best in your garden.


A strong feature of this summerhouse when comparing it to many others in its price range is the high quality 12mm timber cladding used for its walls. This cladding uses a shiplap tongue and groove construction, with timber that tightly interlocks and is shaped to divert rainfall away from the building. As well as improved strength over the more basic overlapped timber found in many sheds, this cladding is low profile and can look especially attractive with an immaculate paint finish. A great way to achieve a more personalised look for your summerhouse is by exploring the expansive catalogue of wood treatments by Protek, available to browse and order through our website. If you add one of the Protek paint options shown on this page with your order, you can enjoy receiving the paint in the same order as your summerhouse, while saving on the paint’s original price.

All timber in this summerhouse is dip treated in advance to help shield it from the elements during transit and assembly, but further wood treatment offers improved protection against weathering – so we recommend its application as soon as possible, once your summerhouse has been assembled. Other features to aid protection against weathering are included, such as mineral roofing felt and an OSB roof. Assuming you follow the basic care guide provided by the manufacturer with your building, your building is covered by a 10 year anti-rot guarantee.  

Styrene is used in all four of the window panes featured in this garden building, and has shatterproof properties that will keep you at ease in a bustling garden environment – particularly if you plan to use your summerhouse for storing more cumbersome items.

This building is supplied flat packed with detailed instructions and all the fixtures needed to complete assembly by yourself. We recommend that you build your summerhouse with one or two trusted friends, or simply add the option to have your building professionally assembled by our team when you order.

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.
