Shire Lela 12x8 Summerhouse

£1,299.99
Tax included

Description

The stylish Lela Summerhouse is a valuable addition to your outdoor living - this modern garden room is perfect for summer dining and relaxing.

With an eaves height of around 7 ft high, the Lela provides a very comfortable, spacious interior.

The joinery made double doors are fitted with a mortice lock and, like the fixed windows, are glazed with styrene safety glazing.

The building is constructed on mighty 44mm square framing and clad with planed shiplap tongue and groove boards made only from the highest grade, slow grown, FSC approved, slow grown pine.

The floor and roof are 12mm matching T&G boards and the roof comes with mineral felt supplied.

The summerhouse is supplied with a honey brown dip treated base coat preservative ready for you to top coat to your choice immediately on installation; this could be a paint or a stain.

When siting, allowance should be made for the roof overhang and access for painting and during installation.

Care information

MAINTENANCE
Your timber building will need to be treated prior to assembly (except log cabins which should be treated following assembly) and at least annually thereafter, but as instructed by the manufacturer of the treatment used. We would recommend that your building is treated prior to assembly and again within 3 months of assembly.

TREATMENTS
Almost all buildings need to be treated to protect the timber from the elements, mould and insects. This can either be a solution applied to the surface of the timber or the timber can be pressure treated.

Treatment applied to the surface of the timber will need to be retreated annually to protect the timber. Pressure treated timber doesn’t need to be retreated to protect the timber but you may decide to treat anyway for aesthetic reasons as pressure treated timber will turn grey over time.

Shire recommend that floor joists are not in contact with the ground. This can be achieved by using a damp proof layer between the base and the joist or alternatively construct a base from pressure treated timbers so that the floor of the building lays across.

Care should be taken to ensure floor joists are treated properly.

Shire do not recommend the use of Pressure Treated tongue & groove cladding as this has a tendency of excessive shrinkage as the impregnated timbers dry. Shire Log Cabins are not treated as treatment prior to construction causes the timber to expand resulting in the boarding not fitting together properly. The floor joists are, however, pressure treated.

Most buildings will need to be treated prior to construction in a good quality preservative. Shire also offer a ‘top coat’ option to save you the job (not available for Log Cabins). On top of the base coat we apply a layer of good quality wood preservative in honey brown.

WHAT TO BUILD ON
The base onto which the building is to be placed must be absolutely firm and level. If it isn’t the doors and windows will warp and not open or close as they should. Also an uneven or base that is not level will put strain on panels that could lead to long term damage.

There are several options you may consider to create a firm, level base – concrete or paving slabs. Pressure treated bearers may be laid on top of the constructed base to lift the building away from surface water, although pressure treated bearers are not suitable for large buildings.

Alternatively, adjustable bases are available for some building sizes which level out a slight slope and keep the floor joists away from standing water. This method is suitable for use on firm soil or lawns.

Whichever method you decide upon you should leave a minimum of 18” or 450 mm all around for access whilst assembly the building and maintenance work. You should also remove any overhead obstructions that could interfere with the assembly of the building or damage it during use. If using bearers, ensure that they run in the opposite direction to the floor joists in the building.
