Alternatively, why not turn it into somewhere to pursue your favourite hobbies? Whether you are a keen painter looking for an art studio or a passionate writer looking for somewhere quiet and inspirational, your summerhouse could give you what you need to clear your head and get down to work. However you decide to use it, we are confident you'll love passing the hours in a Vermont summerhouse.

Why Others Tell us they Love the Vermont

The Vermont boasts a striking, contemporary design that really draws in any onlooker who enjoys the rich look of high-quality timber. The full length bi-fold doors are a very popular design choice on summerhouses, because they offer an easy way to open up the interior without taking up too much space. Along with two fixed side windows, they also let in plenty of light for a comfortable time occupying the summerhouse. The elegant wood finish provides the final touch to this stunning summerhouse, with the quality timber adding to its charm. Our customers often like to add their own personal touch by painting their summerhouses, and they look fantastic in any colour. Many manufacturers recommend that you use Protek paint, available from elbec in a wide variety of colours. By using Protek Royal Exterior, you can make the Vermont look exactly how you want it while adding extra protection to the timber. Whether you love bold, bright colours or a more natural wood finish, Protek has a colour to suit any taste.


The Vermont has a number of features that make it a summerhouse of real quality. With 12mm shiplap tongue and groove cladding, its interlocking design ensures a robust, sturdy structure that is resistant to the elements. The Vermont boasts a 12mm tongue and groove floor too, which ensures a strong and stable base. This is perfect for supporting heavier items, if you had any concerns about adorning your summerhouse with larger items of furniture. The windows and doors are glazed with styrene, an environmentally friendly choice that is a shatterproof and safe alternative to traditional glass.

The bi-fold doors are lockable by an included key, giving extra peace of mind when leaving items in your summerhouse. The use of a rugged solid sheet board for the roof gives you a coverage that is both durable and resistant to water. High quality mineral felt is supplied for the roof of your summerhouse, providing a further barrier to the elements. This also helps to prevent wood rot and weather damage. The Vermont comes with a 10 year anti-rot guarantee, so you can be sure you will be receiving a high quality summerhouse that will last. We’re pleased to offer the option of booking our dedicated professionals, who will assemble your summerhouse quickly and correctly. Alternatively, you can use the comprehensive instructions included with the Vermont and construct it yourself.

Feel free to email us to discuss the Vermont Summerhouse, or better still, give us a call so we can find the perfect summerhouse to suit your needs and answer any queries you may have.

Here, you can sit down with one of our helpful advisors who can guide you through your order or offer advice on the rest of our range of products.

Additional Details about Your Order

All our summerhouses 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) for protection during manufacture and transit. You must apply a water based top coat of your choice in order to receive the full 10-year anti-rot guarantee. Many manufacturers recommend Protek wood treatment, available from elbec in a wide variety of different colours. This will protect the timber from weathering, making it last longer. The timber treatment will need to be repeated periodically in line with the manufacturer's instructions.

Upon Delivery

Your order is delivered either kerbside or driveway and will be delivered on either a 3.5T, 7.5T or 18T Lorry. Unfortunately due to health and safety and insurance liabilities the driver will not be able to take your goods around to the back of your property but may upon request place the product at the side of the house if there are no access or restriction issues. We would not risk damaging your property whilst delivering a product to an unsafe location. Unfortunately, we will not be able to go through your property.

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.


Orders with Assembly 

The lead time for our installation option is around 12 weeks from the date of order. With the installation option, the majority of orders will have their delivery and installation on separate days; there will be a small number of orders which will have delivery and installation on the same day. You will be advised by the manufacturer's installation team which category your order falls into.

Depending on the installation option for your order, you will be contacted within the delivery timescale and given a date for either delivery/assembly on the same date or a separate date for delivery and assembly.
