The Billyoh 4000 Tete a Tete Tongue & Groove Summerhouse – Our first impressions
A superb compact summerhouse with wide opening glazed double doors and feature, functional glazed windows. Ideal for a small garden space or if you want something compact but still with beauty. Constructed from long lasting and hard wearing wood with tongue & groove cladding for extra strength and durability this piece will stay the distance. The higher grade felt on the apex roof gives this summerhouse extra weather protection and we believe this to be the ideal place for some R&R not to mention practising your favourite hobby. The tongue and groove texture of the timber gives a nice, natural finish to the summerhouse enabling it to blend into its natural surroundings however it would be possible to paint your summerhouse to give it more character or to match other items within your garden. The 8x8ft interior space provides enough room to hold a small table and chairs, other garden furniture, hobby items or of course gardening projects.
