            After putting up a Larkspur Summerhouse from Shire on our showsite in 2018, it quickly became one of our most popular garden buildings among visitors. With its distinctive overhanging roof, space-saving corner design, roomy interior and quality construction, we soon had customers flocking to purchase a Larkspur as a fantastic new space to spend their leisure time.

            At elbec, we believe there are few better ways to make the most out of your garden than a summerhouse, and the Larkspur will allow you to enjoy the outdoors in comfort and style.

            Ways to Make the Most of your Larkspur Summerhouse

            If you are looking for a great way to increase your enjoyment of the outdoors and a fantastic space to relax in your spare time, look no further than a summerhouse. With a Larkspur Summerhouse, you can achieve this in considerable style. Although it tucks away neatly in a corner thanks to its space-saving design, the Larkspur still has what it takes to catch the eye immediately and become the focal point of your garden. As a beautiful spot to enjoy dinner and drinks against the stunning backdrop of your garden, nothing beats a summerhouse. Alternatively, for a livelier gathering of friends and family for a BBQ or garden party, the charm of the Larkspur makes it the ideal backdrop for any get-together. Many of our previous customers have also purchased a summerhouse as a space for their hobbies. If you are looking for a quiet and inspiring spot to do some painting or a stylish music practice room, a Larkspur Summerhouse is the perfect solution. Whatever use you have in mind, we have no doubt that you’ll love spending time in your new summerhouse.

            Why Others Tell us they Love the Larkspur

            The Larkspur immediately catches the eye of visitors to our showsite and many of our previous customers because of its distinctive roof design and pointed roof overhang. Whereas most corner summerhouses have a flat or pent roof, the Larkspur stands out, and this charming roof has seen it become very popular among customers. The full-length glazed double doors and two side windows let in buckets of natural light, as well as offering open views of the rest of your garden when inside. Combined with the generous roof height, the interior feels spacious, airy and bright, making spending time in the Larkspur a real pleasure. The wide opening double doors will also allow easy access, for large items of furniture for example, and can be thrown open to make the interior breezy and cool. Many of our customers choose to personalise their summerhouses to suit their style and tastes. A great way to do this is to paint the Larkspur in the colours of your choice. Shire recommends that you use Protek Paint, available to purchase from elbec in over 50 different colours. By using Protek, you can make the Larkspur look exactly how you want while adding unbeatable protection to the timber.


            The Larkspur boasts a number of excellent features that make it a summerhouse of real quality. Its 12mm thick tongue and groove walls ensure a sturdy building with an interior that is well weather protected. Tongue and groove cladding gives fantastic protection against the elements and is a real sign of a quality summerhouse. Plus, the Larkspur has a 12mm thick tongue and groove floor and roof, a further indication of its quality when many summerhouses in this price bracket will use cheaper, less robust and uglier alternatives. The use of tongue and groove boards for the roof and floor also seals the inside tightly away from the elements and gives you a floor that can withstand heavy loads. Grey roof felt is supplied as standard to provide extra weather resistance plus an added barrier to damp and rot. The building is supported by 44mm x 44mm framing, which gives the building great strength and ensures it will stand up to the test of time. The double doors open wide for easy access and feature a mortise lock and key, meaning you have extra peace of mind when leaving items in your summerhouse overnight. With a 10 year anti-rot guarantee completing the package, you can be certain that you are purchasing a summerhouse that will become a feature of your garden for years to come.

            About the Timber

            You will be impressed by Shire's use of natural products and their environmental credentials. A high quality timber building starts with high quality timber, so it is important to know exactly what timber is being used. 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 fewer knots. The timber used on Shire's products is therefore a more durable timber that will last much longer than other timbers. Spruce is therefore the timber of choice for companies such as Shire who always look to produce the best garden building.

            This summerhouse is 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 recommends that you apply a water based top coat. This will protect the timber from weathering on your summerhouse making it last longer and will need to be repeated according to the manufacturer's instructions. Shire recommends Protek Royal Exterior wood finish, available from elbec in many different colours. This is also a great way to refresh the look of your summerhouse over time or personalise it to your liking.
