Why Chose Western Red Cedar…

Why Chose Western Red Cedar… All of our summerhouses are handcrafted using Western Red Cedar which is known for its durability and resistance to the elements. Western Red Cedar is ideal for use in the construction of summerhouses and garden rooms as it is slow grown and naturally durable, with one of the longest life spans of any of the timber species. It is naturally resistant to rot, decay and insect attacks, which means anything you build with it will last longer and require less maintenance.

Summerhouse Insulation

Many people purchase a summerhouse and love spending time in it during the warm spring and summer months, but, once autumn arrives, barely step foot in it again until the next year. We believe that summerhouses or garden buildings should not be restricted to use only during a few months of the year, but should be enjoyed the whole year round, whatever the weather. Insulation works in two different ways – it keeps heat out during hot summers and keeps it in during the winter, helping to create a more consistent temperature throughout the year. It can also help to reduce noise transmission – both from the inside out and the outside in. Our range of summerhouses have the option to ...
