The 7 x 8 Mercia Shiplap Traditional Summerhouse with Veranda creates a picturesque retreat for anyone who finds themselves wishing they could spend more time in their garden. This summerhouse has a traditional and attractive design, including a set of double doors and veranda, which evokes memories of summer garden parties and brightly-coloured beach huts. The inclusion of a veranda covered by the overhanging roof creates an open but sheltered place to sit and unwind on a clear day.

As the biggest in its range, the 7 x 8 offers a generous amount of room inside that would be perfect for a table and chairs. Its size also makes it ideal for garden storage through the cooler months of the year. The shiplap tongue and groove cladding used means that the summerhouse is well protected from the elements and an excellent place to store garden items throughout the wetter seasons.


This cladding makes use of FSC Certified 12mm timber, which closely interlocks and is shaped in order to divert rainfall away from the building. All timber in this summerhouse has been dip treated prior to delivery, which ensures its protection during transit and assembly. We advise our customers to apply further wood treatment when your summerhouse is assembled, providing your building with excellent protection against weathering. This is an essential first step in following the manufacturer’s care guide and ensuring your building is covered by the 10 year anti-rot guarantee.

A great option for future-proofing your summerhouse while adding your own personal touch to the overall appearance is to use paint from the Protek brand, available in a huge range of colours. For a striking impression, experiment with combining more than one shade. 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 delivery as your summerhouse, while saving on the paint’s original price.

Much of this summerhouse’s charm comes from the thoughtful details included in its design. These include matching handles on the double doors, a finial on the apex roof, and the slatted timber floor of the veranda. Alongside the half glazed double doors, two additional fixed windows fill the interior of this summerhouse with sunlight.

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 ordering.
