More than just a summer garden building

Given the amount of light flooding in, why not multi-purpose this building. In addition to it being a place to relax and unwind, it's also the perfect choice for a hobby room. Quality features include triple pane full height double doors. These doors are hung using antique hinges and ornate handle with a 3 lever lock. There are 2 types of window in the Daylight summerhouse - 2 x triple pane non-opening windows on the front. Then at the front of each side wall another 2 triple pane windows, but these have top openers as well.

Veranda option

The standard version of this summer house comes with a 305mm (1 foot) front roof canopy. But we also offer an option to increase this to 762mm (2ft 6") which comes with a matching veranda and side balustrading as well. This really does increase the aesthetics for this garden summerhouse to become the quintessential traditional framed summerhouse.
