A neat and simple yet attractive design, it is sure to look great in your garden as well as providing you with just the room you may have been looking for to turn into a stylish getaway in which to pursue your hobbies.
Ways to Make the Most of your Garden Studio
There are few better ways to get the best out of your garden than by purchasing a summerhouse. With the Garden Studio, you have the perfect way to add extra useable room to your home to pursue all those leisure time activities that you can’t find space for in your house, all set against the beautiful and calming backdrop of your garden. Plus, with its two opening windows as well as the wide opening double doors, you can make the most of your summerhouse in any weather. Throwing open the windows on a hot day, or the windows and double doors on those extra sunny days, will give you a cool, breezy spot to spend your time. Alternatively, having the windows and doors shut should see you nicely sealed from the elements when inside and give you a pleasant place to spend your time in all but the coldest of weather. Whether you see yourself turning it into a great place to practice a musical instrument or into your very own art studio to paint in the inspiring surroundings of your garden, the Garden Studio could give you just the space you need. However you decide to use your new summerhouse, and with larger sizes available if you think you need more space, we are certain you will love making the most of your Garden Studio.

The Garden Studio has a number of fantastic features that make it a summerhouse of real quality. The walls are constructed from 20mm thick rebated bevel cladding to help keep the interior nicely sealed from the elements. This is a wall thickness you would not normally find on a summerhouse and is a real sign of the extra quality of the Garden Studio. The building gets its strength from a robust 44x70mm framework which ensures it is both durable and stable. This framework supports a high quality, 12mm tongue and groove roof that gives great protection from the weather, rot and damp. This protection is enhanced by the heavy duty green mineral roofing felt that is also included as standard. The Garden Studio boasts an impressive load capacity due to its 16mm tongue and groove floor, meaning you can adorn your summerhouse with heavier furnishings without worrying whether your floor will be up to the task. The two opening windows and double doors feature tough double glazing as standard. This is an excellent feature that few other summerhouses can match and ensures you will be snug when inside. The double doors are supplied with a mortise lock and key, giving you extra peace of mind when leaving valuables inside your summerhouse. Alongside all these excellent features, the Garden Studio is protected by a 10 year anti-rot guarantee, meaning you can be confident that you will be purchasing a summerhouse that will be a key feature of your garden for years to come.

About the Timber
You will be impressed by Shire’s use of natural products and their environmental credentials. A high quality timber product starts with high quality timber, so it is important to know exactly what timber is being used for your summerhouse. 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 range 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.
Established in 1945, Shire is the country’s leading, and one of the oldest established, manufacturers of garden buildings. Shire benefit from being adjacent to the Port of Wisbech, through which Shire discharge timber into their warehouses. Shire is the proud manufacturer of the largest timber garden building range produced in the UK. At peak times they produce thousands of buildings a week. Their range includes Garden Sheds, Log Cabins, Eco Homes, Home Offices, Sheds, Workshops, Summerhouses, Playhouses, Arbours, Storage units and Pet houses. Their production facilities cover some 23 acres and include huge undercover stock holding facilities for many of their ranges, an advanced high speed timber planing mill, modern well equipped joinery production facility and semi-automated production lines. All Shire garden buildings are manufactured in the UK using the finest spruce timber, imported directly and machined through the most up to date machines to ensure the best quality and best value for money products in the UK.
