Why Others Tell us they Love the Orchid

The Orchid is a popular summerhouse with those who are looking for something a bit different. With its stylish curved roof, an attractive and unique feature you are unlikely to find on many other summerhouses, the Orchid provides that special something that makes it stand out in the summerhouse crowd. The high quality joinery windows and double doors provide another wonderful feature of this summerhouse that you will struggle to find on other manufacturers’ products. Plus, the almost fully glazed front elevation and two side windows allow in buckets of natural light which, when combined with the generous headroom inside, make the interior feel spacious and airy. Two of these windows are also opening, meaning you can control the temperature inside in all weathers. Our customers often like to add their own personal touch by painting their summerhouses and, as you can see from our images of the Orchid, they look fantastic when painted. Shire recommends you use Protek paint, available from elbec in a wide variety of colours. By using Protek Royal Exterior, you can make the Orchid look exactly how you want it while adding extra protection to the timber. Whether you love bold, bright colours or a more natural wood finish, Protek have a colour to suit any taste.


The Orchid boasts a number of features that secure its status as a summerhouse of real quality. Its 12mm thick shiplap tongue and groove cladding will ensure that the interior is nicely sealed away from the elements. This construction also promotes the effective run off of water and ensures the Orchid is fully weatherproofed. The Orchid also boasts a 12mm tongue and groove floor, a high quality feature that provides an impressive load capacity, so you can adorn your summerhouse with heavier items of furniture. The roof is made from 8mm thick plywood which is protected by heavy duty green mineral roofing felt, all of which ensures protection against the weather, damp and rot. The building gets its strength from its sturdy 34x34mm framing, so you can rest assured that you have purchased a summerhouse that will last. With ¾ glazed double doors, two opening windows and two fixed windows as part of the package, loads of natural light floods into the Orchid and gives wide open views of your garden. The double doors open wide for easy access and can be securely locked with the mortise lock and key. This whole package is protected by a 10 year anti-rot guarantee, so you know it will be a feature of your garden for years to come. We’re pleased to offer the option of booking our dedicated professionals who will assemble your summerhouse quickly and correctly. However, you can choose to use the comprehensive instructions included with the shed and construct it yourself.

About the Timber

You will be impressed by Shire’s use of natural products and their environmental credentials. A high quality timber shed starts with high quality timber, so it is important to know exactly what timber is being used. The most commonly used timber for garden buildings is pine (pinus) as this is widely available for a very cheap price, however all of Shire’s garden buildings are constructed using high quality spruce (picea) and is sourced from Siberia and Scandinavia under strict FSC guidance. Spruce is more durable than pine and provides a higher quality finish. This timber is slow grown unlike fast grown British and Eastern Europe’s timber, being slow grown timber means a tighter grain, less sap and with far fewer knots. The timber used on Shire’s products is therefore a more durable timber that will last much longer than other timbers. Spruce is therefore the timber of choice for companies such as Shire who always look to produce the best garden building.

Installation option

If you are choosing the installation option after placing your order you’ll be contacted within 1-2 working days either by a text message or automated telephone message (the latter if a mobile number is not supplied). This message will supply you with the name of the website to go on to where you will be required to accept the terms and conditions for assembly. Any delay in accepting these terms and conditions may affect your timescale. Once you have accepted these terms and conditions you will be contacted during the timescale with a date for the delivery/assembly of your order. The installation option will extend your lead time by up to 15-20  working days. This may take longer during seasonal periods. Please be aware that the installation team will require full access to your garden. Our Installation team will not bring a building through your home as they are not covered by insurance to enter a customer’s home.

Anti-Rot Guarantee

All of the wooden garden buildings at Timberdise come with an anti-rot guarantee for peace of mind that your new garden building will be around long after we have supplied it. All buildings come with a 10 year anti-rot guarantee apart from the pressure treated range as these come with a 15 year anti-rot guarantee.

Most of the wooden garden buildings we supply come with a pre-coat of treatment that we like to call transportation protection. This protects the buildings from the elements as we deliver them to you and also gives you a small period of time from installation to actually getting the building treated yourself so that the building is not exposed during this crucial stage of its life (this does not include log cabins and garden rooms). Log cabins and garden rooms come without any treatment so make sure you treat these buildings within the first week of them being installed.

We at Timberdise will always advise you to treat your new wooden garden building as soon as you possibly can and ask that you continue to treat the building at least every 12 months there after. This is to ensure you get the maximum life span out of the building and prevent any premature rotting. We also advise you that to keep your guarantee valid you do have to treat both inside and outside of the buildings as most buildings don’t come with any damp protection.
