The Hampton Premium Summerhouse is an attractive building which is particularly spacious and fits perfectly into the corner, wasting no space.

Manufactured in the UK, Shire's summerhouses are renowned for their quality and is probably make the best value for money summerhouses in the UK today.

A great space to relax in and enjoy the outdoors even on those cooler evenings. Two large opening criss-crossed windows combine with the matching double doors to provide a bright and airy atmosphere inside.

There is no extra cost for our opening windows. Produced to the highest standards using quality timbers from sustainable sources. Shire buildings are made from a high grade ship-lap tongue and groove construction.

This is distinguished from fast grown type timber used on cheaper sheds from other manufactures. Tongue and groove construction means the building is better sealed from the elements. The timber used is a continental slow grown timber. Slower grown timber means tighter grain, extra strength and longer life.

Frame -  A robust Planed 35x35mm (1 1/2' x 1 1/2') framework (walls and floor) that gives the building strength.

Floor -  manufactured from high quality 12mm planed tongue and groove matching pattern boarding.

Roof -  constructed using 11mm Oriented Strand Board (OSB), Roof felt supplied.

Walls -  are constructed using high quality 12mm thick softwood planed tongue and groove shiplap pattern boarding.

Treatment -  all Shire buildings are supplied with a factory applied first coat treatment in a honey brown water based product. The summerhouse will require a second coat wood preservative to be applied.

Windows -  are properly morticed and tenoned. They are opening, profiled, and weather resistant. The window has a unique profiled 'lip' that covers the aperture of the opening in the panel making it weather resistant. Casement stays have 2 levels of opening. The glazing is 3mm horicultural glass. All glazing is retainedby profiled beading which is pre-mitred (no awkward corners to be cut).

Doors: Joinery double doors with 3mm horticultural glass glazing.

Treatment: All Shire garden buildings are supplied pre-treated with a base coat to both sides in a golden brown water based industrial product (colour can vary from the picture shown). Shire the manufacturer recommends that you apply a water based top coat of your choice. This will protect the timber from weathering on your shed making it last longer and will need to be repeated accordingly in relation to the manufacturer's instructions.

Supplied flat packed for ease of handling and assembly. All fittings and felt are included in the price with clear easy to follow instructions.

"Very happy with this Hampton corner summerhouse, we’ve had many happy times, used it all through lockdown, We have had our summerhouse since 30/06/2017 and this year maybe next it will need another coat of stain to spruce it up. Left out for four winters and will probably need to have new felt put on before this winter. Some nice little extra’s with house was a few spare panes of glass and two spare window latches..Overall no complaints, well made easy to put together, will definitely need two people due to the weight of the pieces."

"Ordered this at Covid was "coming to an end". I cannot believe the cost of the similar products out in the market. Quality is as expected and O loved the images to give me an idea of how to make it look more expensive. "

"Purchased this summer house March 2021. From ordering to delivery it was easy . Polite staff provided us with a delivery date and it arrived bang on . The quality is good value for the cost of the summer house . We did choose to paint the summer house before assembly which we would highly recommend to preserve its life. We used Cuprinol which painted and covered well. Assembly is straight forward with easy to follow instructions we had all the components nothing was missing . We had toughened glass and opening windows as it can get rather warm inside .
All in all we think it will be a well used extra room in the garden we are very pleased with the purchase . "

"Easy to assemble, no major problems, came with two extra toughened float glass window panes, in case of any breakages doing construction, unlike those cheaper plastic ones that come with other company's sheds/summer houses, also extra wooden quadrant pieces to hold panes in, nice thoughtful touch in both cases! Finished product admired by all who thought that it cost me £1000+. Struggled to find fault with it!! Thanks a great deal!"
