Description

The popular 7 x 7 Buckingham Pressure Treated Summerhouse from Shire is a stunning, traditional style summerhouse that is certain to add a real touch of elegance to your garden. A place to relax when the sun is shining with a drink or two, or perhaps a space for your hobbies, the Buckingham is sure to enhance your enjoyment of your garden.

Wide-opening, ¾ glazed double doors and a large opening side window allow buckets of light to flood the interior of the Buckingham, making it feel bright, airy and spacious. Plus, you can throw the window and doors open on an extra-sunny day to spill out into your garden or let in a cool breeze. Customers who purchase the Buckingham are won over by its traditional appearance. The elegant, Georgian-style glazing in the window and doors, the traditional apex roof and a charming, scalloped facia cement the Buckingham as a real favourite of lovers of the traditional. You can add an optional veranda too if you want to add a beautiful finishing touch to the Buckingham's classic good looks.

Features

The Buckingham 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. They are properly morticed and tenoned and the window also has a unique profiled “lip” that covers the aperture of the opening in the panel, making it extra weather resistant. Casement stays have 2 levels of opening. 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 Buckingham 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 Buckingham, 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 Buckingham 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.

Treatment

This Buckingham 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. Please be aware that the colour will be lighter and can vary from teh colour shown in product images.
