Garden Summer Houses in Devon by Shields Garden Buildings
Garden Summer Houses

Enjoy the summer in your very own Summer House and savour the peace and tranquillity whilst being sheltered from the weather. Garden Summer Houses are on a lot of peoples’ bucket lists, so they need to be perfect. We work with you to design, build and install a Summer House that surpasses expectations with a superior finish throughout. 

There are 2 Summer House designs in the Shields Buildings range: the Salcombe, which is a super example of a cosy garden room with an attractive apex roof and the Sidmouth, which is a versatile Garden Summer House in a range of sizes with a robust pent roof. 

Both buildings come unlined as standard, keeping the wood cladding visible, which gives a lovely rustic feel, or you can choose to have your Summer House lined with tongue and groove pine lining. Your building can be painted or stained to give it a contemporary look, ideal for blending into your garden setting.

The Base - with a floor

If your building comes with a timber floor built in, then all you’ll need is a level site for it to sit on.  We can discuss this when we do a site visit. Don’t worry about getting your spirit level out though – our trained installers will deal with that when they arrive to install your building.

The Roof

Unless you love getting rained on, a roof is pretty much a must, and the good news is that you’ll be well catered for – you can choose from natural finishes of cedar shingles and slate, through to long-lasting plastisol steel sheeting, all in a range of colours.

The Interior - Flooring

Our oak engineered wood flooring is ideal for garden rooms, giving a floor that will withstand heavy footfall and offer many years of usage. Made from 3 layers of wood in a cross-gain lamination, it’s resistant to expansion and contraction.

Windows and the Doors - non insulated buildings

However many windows you want, your wish is our command.  Your windows can either be fixed, or opening, depending on your requirements.  Many customers opt for removable security shutters to ensure security when they’re not there.

Quality & Luxury

You may like to add a solid wood floor in oak, ash or walnut, giving an affordable feeling of permanent luxury in your building.

Why not make the most of enjoying longer evenings in your Summer House by adding lights and a power point?

All the external timber we use is northern European redwood, from sustainable and managed sources. Your bespoke Garden Summer House will be given extra protection against the weather with two coats of water proofer, or if you prefer, you can have it painted, or stained in a wide range of colours giving that personal touch.
