The Kempsford Shiplap Summerhouse is a modern and versatile garden building that sits well in any garden setting.

The Kempsford is made from FSC certified timbers which have been pressure treated with Osmose Naturewood preservative, an internationally trusted name in wood preservation. Osmose is an effective method of preserving wood against fungal decay and insect attack and thus reduces annual maintenance costs and time. As an added bonus, the Kempsford Summerhouse comes with a 15 year guarantee against rot.

The large styrene glazed windows and double doors give the interior of the summerhouse a light and airy feel; this is further enhanced by the apex roof which maximises headroom.

You can apply a decorative colour or stain if you want to change the external appearance of your summerhouse.  We recommend that you use a water based treatment such as Protek’s Royal Exterior Finish and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.

The Kempsford Summerhouse is supplied flat packed for ease of handling and assembly. All the fittings and felt are included in the price and it comes with clear easy to follow instructions.
