Shire Stork Playhouse Including Platform

Shire Stork Playhouse Including Platform

What are the necessary ingredients for long-lasting memories of a happy childhood? We’ll all suggest different things but my list includes the ability to use one’s imagination, best friends, favourite toys, chocolate and a playhouse.

The Shire Stork Playhouse from elbec is the best place ever for stirring the imagination. Just think of all the things you could do in such a wonderful space. You could invite your best friends to tea and entertain them in sumptuous surroundings. You could stand on the platform and scan the lawn for the pirates hiding on the other side of the flower borders. You could sit in splendid isolation and wait for someone special to climb the stairs and rescue you. You could store enough chocolate to feed an army. You could …

From an adult’s perspective the Stork playhouse is ideal because it’s well made with safety hinges and styrene glazed windows and doors. The ladder can be positioned at the front or on either side of the verandah and the cabin means the children can play safely out of the sun in the summer months or be sheltered in the cooler months.

This enchanting playhouse is available in two versions:

Large Log Cabins for Tiresome Teenagers or Moaning Mums

Large Log Cabins for Tiresome Teenagers or Moaning Mums

Much as you love your teenagers, you wouldn’t be normal if you didn’t admit that there are times when they and their friends get under your feet. It’s not that you want to banish them completely - after all, they’ll leave home for good soon enough - but if only there was a room where they could go so that the rest of the family could get on with everyday living.

The perfect answer could be a log cabin sited at the bottom of the garden and elbec has a number of models which would fit the bill.

Shire Kingswood

The Kingswood is big enough to take a tribe of teenagers who could either spread out inside the building or lounge around on the verandah while they put the world to rights.

Shire Elveden

The Elveden would work well as a den for teenagers, and with two rooms, it’s a really versatile building.  With space for messy hobbies, you’d never have to keep reminding your teenagers to tidy up at the end of the day. The second room would work well as a quiet or a noisy area, depending on mood or the time of day. Having two rooms is a real advantage and could be one of the reasons why this model is being used as a cricket pavilion in some parts of the country.

Shire Sherwood

The Sherwood is an attractive log cabin and, with its pretty verandah, would look good in any garden. Although the windows are made from toughened glass it is possible to upgrade them and have double glazing fitted which could be a useful addition if your teenagers are into noisy music. It’s such an attractive building that you may find that you prefer to leave your teenagers in their bedrooms while you and your partner enjoy some peace, quiet and quality time at the bottom of your garden.

So whether you want your children to temporarily vacant the house, or want to escape yourself, a log cabin will provide you with all the peace and quiet you need.

Suncast storage solutions for small gardens

Suncast storage solutions for small gardens

Leaving garden tools or toys such as scooters and doll’s prams outside during the summer months may be fine, but it’s not such a good idea during the winter. But finding somewhere suitable for those smaller bits and pieces can be a problem, especially if you haven’t a lot of storage space. Have a look at the Suncast range of garden storage from elbec - there are lots of good ideas which are practical and cost effective.

Suncast Java Plastic Small Deck Box with Seating

The Suncast Java seat is easy to assemble, holds a surprising number of small objects and would look good on a patio or tucked into a corner of any style of garden.

Suncast Plastic Kensington Six Garden Storage

The Suncast Kensington range of garden storage is ideal for slightly bigger garden items such as larger tools, hoses, barbecue equipment or even your wheelie bins. The Kensington range is made from UV-resistant durable resin which doesn’t need any maintenance.

Playhouses for boys! Whatever next?

If you associate playhouses with girls you really should think again because there’s an adventurous range of playhouses available which have been designed with lads in mind.

The Shire Command Post playhouse is another excellent buy for boys at only £319. The Command Post has plenty of room, three fixed windows to spy out the land and two ports which open just in case the enemy (such as a sister) has to be kept at bay.

Whether for boys or girls, all wooden playhouses from elbec are built to a rigorous standard with lots of safety features and will last for years.

Light up your garden with a Shire Highclere summerhouse

Light up your garden with a Shire Highclere summerhouse

Daylight may be getting shorter as the winter approaches, but keen gardeners know that October is often the ideal time to begin planning for next season. And where better to work out next year’s crops and colourful creations than relaxing in a summerhouse in your garden?  Especially as the ever popular Shire Highclere summerhouse from elbec is currently on offer.

One of the key features of this well-constructed contemporary summerhouse is the amount of light that floods in through four, full length environmentally-friendly styrene windows and two doors. This makes the summerhouse an ideal place for activities such as entertaining or carrying out a hobby which benefits from plenty of daylight.

With so many full-length windows and doors, it’s important to have a robust framework to give the summerhouse strength. That’s taken as standard, along with well constructed walls, a sturdy tongue and groove floor and felt roof.

Available in two sizes, the 10x8 Highclere summerhouse is currently on offer at £879.88 giving a saving of over £230. The slightly bigger version (10x10) is £999.88 which means you save almost £500.

The summerhouse is pre-treated with a base coat, it comes flat packed for ease of handling and assembly and is delivered free to most parts of the UK mainland within 15 to 25 working days.

So, don’t let the diminishing daylight dampen your spirits. If you’re interested in enjoying you garden all year round from the comfort of a Shire Highclere summerhouse, then you’ll need to hurry, because the offers ends soon.
