Description

Forest 4Life Summerhouses are attractive, contemporary takes on classic summerhouse designs. Pressure treated and supplied with an extraordinary 25-year guarantee, they are the best overlap summerhouses the company has ever made. This particular model is the 8 x 6 Double Door Reverse Apex Summer House (2.42m x 1.99m), so provides an idyllic space in which you can relax and unwind in the garden.

A Fully-Modular Summer House

Beautifully built here, in Great Britain, this garden summerhouse features a fully-modular design. This means it’s delivered in smaller sections of interchangeable panels, but you get more overall wood, so you'll find it much easier to assemble and far stronger than other wooden summerhouses. This fully-modular design also allows you a market-leading choice of door/ window placements, helping you customise the summerhouse to your exact requirements.

Supported by a sturdy 28mm x 28mm frame, the 7mm overlap cladding allows for the natural movement of the wood over the changing seasons, while ensuring excellent rainwater runoff. These overlap boards have a straight-cut design for a smarter, more stylish finish.

14mm Solid Wood Floor and Weatherproof Roof Covering

Made from 14mm solid wood boards, the floor is perfectly equipped to house your heavier summer house furniture. It is fitted with pressure-treated bearers, which promote good air flow underneath the summer house and prevent the floor from getting damp, so providing a further layer of protection against rot and fungal decay.

The 8mm OSB roof features an eye-catching reverse apex design, diamond-shaped finials, and a green mineral felt cover to give you complete protection from the elements.

Double Doors and Extensive Glazing

You can gain very easy access to this summerhouse via partially-glazed double doors, which come with sturdy handles, a tower bolt and turn buttons to keep them securely in place.

Thanks to 5 additional large, fixed windows, this garden summerhouse enjoys an abundance of natural light - perfect if you're relaxing inside with a good book or dining with your loved ones. All of these windows are made from lightweight PET, making them completely shatterproof and far safer than conventional glass - ideal for a busy, family-orientated garden.

Ethically Sourced, Maintenance Free and a Market-Leading Guarantee

The wood used to build this 8x6 summerhouse is FSC® certified, which is the world’s most-trusted mark for sustainable forestry. It is pressure treated and delivered with a market-leading 25-year anti-rot guarantee, so further treatment against rot is never required, saving you money on expensive wood preservatives and leaving you more time to relax in your garden.

White Glove Delivery Service

Free delivery is available to most UK postcodes using Forest's White Glove Service. This means the summer house is delivered straight into your garden, with all of the product packaging removed.

A full set of fixings and clear instructions are included to help you achieve a straightforward assembly.

Optional Upgrades

If you'd rather the professionals assemble the summerhouse for you, we offer a competitively-priced installation service as an optional upgrade.

You can purchase a pressure-treated wooden base as an optional extra too.

PRESSURE TREATMENT PROCESS EXPLAINED

 

The Pressure treatment process for timber has been applied to products for a number of years; the key benefit of this process is that the preservative is forced under vacuum pressure right deep into the heart of the wood and the grain structure. The preservative becomes an integral part of the wood; giving a long life and protection against rot.

 

This process also means that you never have to apply preservatives to your garden summerhouse, and it allows the natural colours of the timber to show through and so your summerhouse blends easily within your garden. Surprisingly, our pressure treated summer houses are only slightly more expensive than dip treated alternatives.
