            Ways to Make the Most of your Barclay Summerhouse

            If you have a corner of your garden that is uninspiring at best and dull at worst, the Barclay Summerhouse is the ideal way to bring it to life and put it to good use. Certain to become a real talking point of your garden, the Barclay provides the perfect place to sit back and enjoy the wide-open views of your garden it gives you. Whether you are entertaining guests or just at home with your family, there are few better ways to enjoy some drinks or sit down for dinner than in the attractive surroundings of a Barclay Summerhouse. Alternatively, you may be dreaming of having a bright and stylish space to pursue your hobbies. Whether you’re a keen painter looking for an inspiring art studio or a musician eager to have a space to practice in private, a summerhouse could be just the solution. But the possibilities for how to use your summerhouse don’t end there, and we are certain you’ll love spending your time in the Barclay, however you decide to use it.

            Why Others Tell us they Love the Barclay

            Admirers of the Barclay are drawn to the elegant, contemporary exterior and the wide-open feel that the double doors and side windows provide. The generous headroom combined with the full-length windows and doors really maximise that bright and open feel on the inside, while providing panoramic views. The rounded effect to the summerhouse provides added charm to its appearance and contributes to those wonderful, open views from the inside of the rest of your garden. But that is not the only reason for this design. It is a design choice that is both attractive and practical, meaning that the Barclay will fit perfectly and look great in almost any corner of any garden. These reasons ensure that the Barclay remains a popular choice for customers looking for a stylish, quality summerhouse at a price that is hard to beat. Our customers often like to add their own personal touch by painting their summerhouses and they look fantastic in any colour. Shire recommends you use Protek Paint, available from elbec in a wide variety of colours. Using Protek, you can make the Barclay look exactly how you want while adding extra protection to the timber.


            The robust 34mm x 34mm framework used for the Barclay gives this Summerhouse a sturdy feel that you just don’t get with some other summerhouses. The tongue and groove floor gives a great finished look and provides a solid base for you to furnish your summerhouse without worrying about overloading. The slow grown timber used on Shire Summerhouses gives a tighter grain, ensuring extra strength and a longer life for the Barclay. The handcrafted, quality joinery on the tough, styrene glazed windows and doors really add to the excellent overall package. The shiplap tongue and groove construction will also ensure that the inside of the summerhouse is nicely sealed from the elements. The Barclay comes with a 10 year anti rot guarantee, and this combined with the other features mentioned means you can rest assured you will be purchasing a summerhouse that will last. We’re pleased to offer the option of booking our dedicated professionals who will assemble your summerhouse quickly and correctly. However, you can choose to use the comprehensive instructions included with the Barclay and construct it yourself.

            About the Timber

            You will be impressed by Shire's use of natural products and their environmental credentials. A high quality timber log cabin starts with high quality timber, so it is important to know exactly what timber is being used for your log cabin. The most commonly used timber for garden buildings is pine (pinus) as this is widely available for a very cheap price, however all of Shire's garden buildings are constructed using high quality spruce (picea) and is sourced from Scandinavia under strict FSC guidance. Spruce is more durable than pine and provides a higher quality finish. This timber is slow grown unlike fast grown British and Eastern Europe's timber, being slow grown timber means a tighter grain, less sap and with far less knots. The timber used on Shire's log cabins is therefore a more durable timber that will last much longer than other timbers used on log cabins. Spruce is therefore the timber of choice for companies such as Shire who always look to produce the best garden building.

Delivery is typically between 7am and 7pm. The delivery drivers are only insured to deliver to kerb side or driveway. We would not risk damaging your property whilst delivering a product. Unfortunately we will not be able to go through your property. Deliveries are hand-balled off by the driver.

            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.

Please be aware that the installation team will require full access to your garden, 18" clearance all around the building and a firm and level base. Shire's installation team will not bring a building through your home as they are not covered by insurance to enter a customer’s home.


            Please note: all imperial measurements are approximate, and the Shire Summerhouses are made from metric measurements. We would recommend that the base is at least 50mm bigger in each direction.

            Customer Reviews

            By MrEdwardMiddleton on 14th August 2020
            "Ordered the Shire 8x8 corner summerhouse in April 2020 and were given a 4 week delivery time which gave us plenty time to prepare the slab base. This was a task in itself during lockdown as open merchants were few and far between. Delivery came as promised on the day and was offloaded by a very courteous and polite driver leaving us to get on with the project. Took 2 full days to get it up and wind and watertight but the weather window was very kind with a warm dry spell for the whole week.Great quality materials, I elected to replace some of the facings with better timber but overall a high quality product. We love our new summerhouse and can highly recommend it to any prospective buyers thinking about using Elbec Garden Buildings or the Shire Barclay corner in particular. Oh,and buy the Protek exterior paint that is offered when buying your garden building, it's a good price and is a brilliant product."
