The 8 x 6 Forest Oakley Apex Summerhouse adopts the modern aesthetics of summerhomes with a more airy design in mind. The apex roof and wide-opening double doors make you feel closer to nature and an open feel to the summerhouse. The contemporary look and sizeable design make it perfect for the average garden.

This comfy summerhouse is a great fit for a variety of gardens, giving a quiet space for relaxation. Furniture pieces like tables and chairs would fit comfortably in the summerhouse, giving an excellent area to have guests. The straight-cut timber wall cladding overlaps to help with water runoff, the ergonomic design makes the building of the summerhouse simple. As Forest sheds and summerhouses use additional timber, you can rely on them to weather any bad conditions.

The apex roof and wide-opening doors allow you to bring the outdoors inside of your summerhouse. The four long windows allow an abundance of light to permeate throughout the summerhouse giving sufficient lighting, they can be configured in 3 different locations on the depth, and the wood is pressure-treated to provide long-lasting enjoyment. The double doors are excellent for ventilation, allowing you to open up the summerhouse for fresh air. As the weather gets colder, you can close the doors to transform it into a cosy glazed garden room for entertaining your guests.

With the Forest Oakley, you get high-quality tongue and floorboards, this is an optimal upgrade that gives the summerhouse a better feeling of comfort. This would also make the floorboards much more reliable as they will be sturdier and be able to hold a lot of the heavier furniture pieces.

Make the Most of Your Summerhouse:

The Forest Oakley 8 x 6 is an accommodating summerhouse that can be the centrepiece of any garden. However, making use of the space can alter how often you would use it. A table and some chairs would be an amazing place to have guests over, or exercise gear to have a calming outdoor workout area. Give your summerhouse a taste of what you would use it for! No matter how you use it, this cosy summerhouse will be an amazing addition to your garden.

About Your Order:

The Oakley is a UK-made summerhouse that features FSC® certified timber. Pressure-treated timbers are used throughout the construction of the summerhouse. The treatment gives you a 15-year guarantee against fungal damage and rot. The simple design makes it easy to assemble, and all the fixtures and fittings required for assembly are provided.

The summerhouse includes hard-wearing fixings, high-quality roof felt, and easy-to-follow assembly instructions. The pressure-treated, straight-cut overlapping boards are fixed to sturdy internal framing for strong, weather-resistant panels.

Please note: Images may show the summerhouse painted, may depict furnishings and accessories; these are for illustration purposes only and are not included with your order.

Summerhouse Aftercare:

The summerhouse is made from pressure-treated timbers to excel in durability and preservation. Pressure treated products do not require annual re-treatment. These products have the anti-rot solution in the timber structure, giving them improved rot resistance. The treatment may leave a greenish tinge on the wood; this is normal and will grey over time. Forest Garden Pressure Treated products come with a 15-year Anti-Rot guarantee. The manufacturer advises that if you do want to personalise your summerhouse with a different colour ensure the treatment you choose is recommended for pressure-treated timber. What our manufacturer would recommend for even more longevity and extra protection, is to apply a water repellent product to your summerhouse.

elbec recommends Protek wood treatment. Browse our Protek Royal Exterior Wood Finish Paint range to find the best summerhouse paint colour to add your own finish.
