Lifestyle Timber Buildings



Summerhouses are often personal buildings that someone has dreamed of owning for a long time. We work with you to design, build and install a Summerhouse that not only meets your requirements but surpasses them with a superior finish throughout. 

There are 2 Summerhouse designs in the Shields Buildings range. The Salcombe, which is a super example of a cosy garden room with an attractive pyramid shaped natural cedar roof and the Sidmouth, which is a versatile Summerhouse in a range of sizes with a robust pent roof. 

They look super inside, being unlined you can see the wood cladding, which gives a lovely rustic feel, or you can choose to have your Summerhouse 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.

Hand crafted garden buildings made by experts.
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 Summerhouse by adding lights and a power point?

All the external timber we use is northern European redwood, from sustainable and managed sources. Your bespoke timber Summerhouse 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.

Product options

Your timber Summerhouse is designed for you, to suit you, with a cedar shingle pyramid apex roof, or if you need to keep the height below 2.5m the pent roof version with a plastisol steel roof may be your best option. The interior can be kept natural, or lined with tongue and groove pine lining – giving you a bright, natural garden room to enjoy all year round.
