8 x 8 Chelsea Corner Summer House – Our first impressions
This delightful building has a wonderful amount of light and warmth due to the styrene windows in the sides. These add light overall, and are a very useful feature of the 8’ x 8’ corner summerhouse.
12 mm interlocking tongue and groove cladding brings a lot of stability and strength to the building, so that you have protection against the elements and wear and tear in general. A tough lever sash lock also protects the door, so you get plenty of security too.
If you haven’t the space for a regular shaped summer house but do have a spare corner in your garden then the Chelsea Summer House could be the summer house that you have been searching for. Whether used as an outdoor dining area or a studio, the large windows will provide a wonderful view out into the garden all year round.

Exterior: The Chelsea Summer House is modern in design yet traditional in the use of 12mm tongue and groove cladding that provides both a sturdy structure and protection from the elements. The high quality timber has a nice natural colour that will blend effortlessly into your garden.
Interior: The 8x8ft summer house interior is medium sized, however due to the triangular shape of the building, allowing it to fit into a corner, it may be more difficult to plan a conventional room. The summer house is multi-purpose and could be used for a variety of activities from relaxation to dining and hobbies.
Windows & Doors: There are two large windows to the front of the summer house either side of the double doors. Both the double doors and windows have full length glazing which allows a huge amount of light into the summer house as well as providing wonderful views into the garden.
Security: The Corner Summer House comes complete with a lever sash lock which keeps the double doors shut firmly and locked securely when not in use.
