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.
Garden Summer Houses have glazed doors and deep windows giving you a bright, natural garden room. Our most popular size is 2.5m wide x 2.5m deep with an attractive apex roof, giving plenty of room and height inside.
With a beautiful landscaped garden, Helen wanted a timber garden building to use as an extra room and enhance their enjoyment of the garden. They had an attractive stained-glass window they wanted to incorporate, and we included this in the design of the back window for them.
I would like to thank you and all the team who worked so diligently and professionally on our summerhouse and more recently our carport. Both buildings are a pleasure to look at and the standard of workmanship is excellent. The finished results are everything we hoped for.
Very many thanks for all you have done.
Whilst this may look like a typical Summer House, we were in fact asked to design the timber building to provide somewhere suitable for the customer to work from home as well as enjoy the garden setting. Therefore, the building benefits from insulation and has full height double glazed windows, making it an ideal home office; warm, dry, comfortable and light.
Thank you for the very professional and efficient way Beverley's garden room has been designed and put up by John and all the team. We are very pleased with the building and your service and will definitely recommend you.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
