Alternatively, you may be dreaming of having a bright and stylish space to pursue your hobbies. Whether you’re a keen painter looking for an inspiring art studio or a musician eager to have a space to practice in private, a summerhouse could be just the solution.

Why Others Tell us they Love the Barclay

Admirers of the Barclay are drawn to the elegant, contemporary exterior and the wide-open feel that the double doors and side windows provide. The generous headroom combined with the full-length windows and doors really maximise that bright and open feel on the inside, while providing panoramic views. The rounded effect to the summerhouse provides added charm to its appearance and contributes to those wonderful, open views from the inside of the rest of your garden. But that is not the only reason for this design. It is a design choice that is both attractive and practical, meaning that the Barclay will fit perfectly and look great in almost any corner of any garden. These reasons ensure that the Barclay remains a popular choice for customers looking for a stylish, quality summerhouse at a price that is hard to beat. Our customers often like to add their own personal touch by painting their summerhouses and they look fantastic in any colour. Shire recommends you use Protek Paint, available from elbec in a wide variety of colours. Using Protek, you can make the Barclay look exactly how you want while adding extra protection to the timber.


The robust 34mm x 34mm framework used for the Barclay gives this Summerhouse a sturdy feel that you just don’t get with some other summerhouses. The tongue and groove floor gives a great finished look and provides a solid base for you to furnish your summerhouse without worrying about overloading. The slow grown timber used on Shire Summerhouses gives a tighter grain, ensuring extra strength and a longer life for the Barclay. The handcrafted, quality joinery on the tough, styrene glazed windows and doors really add to the excellent overall package. The shiplap tongue and groove construction will also ensure that the inside of the summerhouse is nicely sealed from the elements. The Barclay comes with a 10 year anti rot guarantee, and this combined with the other features mentioned means you can rest assured you will be purchasing a summerhouse that will last. 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 Barclay 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 log cabin starts with high quality timber, so it is important to know exactly what timber is being used for your log cabin. 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 less knots. The timber used on Shire’s log cabins is therefore a more durable timber that will last much longer than other timbers used on log cabins. Spruce is therefore the timber of choice for companies such as Shire who always look to produce the best garden building.

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.

Please have a look at the aftercare details we have available on this site by clicking here Aftercare for Sheds, Summerhouses & Playhouses and Aftercare for Log Cabins for further information.

If you have any further queries please do not hesitate to contact us.
