The Pinnacle 6ft x 6ft Gazebo Summerhouse is one very smart, classy and elegant looking small summer house. This summerhouse will give you a fun space to have a nice meal, play with the kids, work from home or even just to kick back and watch TV in peace. This is a lovely looking structure with two opening windows so if the weather is good and it is a little too hot, you can just crack them open and let a flow of air inside. They have used a very stylish looking door that is also a decent size. This door has a very old school looking mortice lock that really does finish off the front of the structure perfectly.
While this is a small summer house that has a great look it is also very, very strong. 12 mm thick tongue and groove shiplap cladding that is backed up with a 35 mm x 35 mm frame is what they have used. This makes the summerhouse something that is going to last for 20 or more years. Tongue and groove boarding is also used for the roof and the floor which go well with the style of the summerhouse, but also means they are very strong. The windows on the sides and the door are made with some very robust, 3 mm thick horticultural glass.

Let's Take a Closer Look...
Summerhouse Type And Roof Size
The Pinnacle 6ft x 6ft Gazebo Summerhouse is a truly incredible small summer house that has a very stylish and classy look to it. So for those of you who want something that little more special in your garden this is it. You could have a lot of fun eating out here, using it as an outdoor office or even as a space for the kids to play. This is over 6 feet in both its width and its depth and the height is a very impressive 8 feet at its highest point right in the middle. Even at the lowest point this summerhouse stands at over 6 feet tall so there is a very nice amount of headroom inside of here. We know this is not the largest summerhouse on the market, but we do feel that the space this offers can go very far if you plan things out just right.
The roof is just flat out awesome. Actually it is not flat at all as it is a apex/conical style roof and it just has such a great look to it. The roof has a very slight overhang which will help keep the rain running off the roof and down the actual structure. The roof on the inside is also very attractive as they have used tongue and groove boarding. This boarding is 12 mm thick and is supported with a very strong framework that we actually feel has a pretty sharp and smart look to it. Covering this is some strong and long lasting roofing felt which we feel just finished off the roof perfectly.
Cladding, Frame And Floor
Even from the first glance you can tell that the Pinnacle 6ft x 6ft Gazebo Summerhouse is one very smart looking building. A huge part of this is not just that conical style roof, but the fact they have used 12 mm thick tongue and groove shiplap cladding. This cladding has a very smooth look to it and the way those boards interlock means that there is no way rain can get inside.
This small summer house has some very smart cladding, but behind this cladding stands a frame which is a very impressive 35 mm x 35 mm which makes it thick and robust. The frame may sound like the most boring part of the summerhouse to talk about, but this frame is going to be one of the main reasons that even 20 years down the line, this summerhouse is still standing as strong as the day it was built.
Under your feet is the same kind of boarding that is used for the roof. This is a design decision that we are very happy to see. First of all this kind of boarding is very strong so will take tables, chairs, a big TV and even yourself getting down to some of Michael Jackson’s greatest hits. Also the flooring they have used goes with the style of the rest of the structure very well.
Treatment Requirement And Warranty
This is a lovely looking small summer house and while we really do feel that the Pinnacle 6ft x 6ft Gazebo Summerhouse is simply gorgeous. We must warn you that this will come to you with a very basecoat of treatment, so this means that shortly after you have installed it you will want to give it a coating of wood treatment. As long as you give it a fresh coating once a year, you will have no problems with rot or decay.
You will get a one year manufacturer’s warranty with this summerhouse. While we do feel that this is made so well the chances of there being any problems are quite slim, we have seem other summerhouses that come with a warranty that is as long as ten years.
Doors And Windows
They have used a fantastic looking door on the Pinnacle 6ft x 6ft Gazebo Summerhouse. It is a single door, but that is to be expected with a small summer house. The door has a great look to it and we love the vertical cladding they have used at the bottom. Most of the door is made up with a strong horticultural glass window which we really like. The door is 5 feet 5 inches high and 2 feet 1 inch wide which is right around what we would expect in a structure of this size.
One of the biggest surprises of this summerhouse were the windows. There are two good sized windows on each side and they both can be opened. This means you can get a good flow of fresh air inside here on those really hot summer days. The windows are made with 3 mm thick horticultural glass which was great too see.
Security And Privacy
If you look closely at the pictures you will see that giving this small summer house some extra style is the old time mortice lock they have used on the door. We really do like this, but suggest that if you do plan on putting something expensive like a TV or stereo in here, that you consider adding some kind of padlock or extra lock to give it that bit more security.
The Pinnacle 6ft x 6ft Gazebo Summerhouse gives you just as much privacy as any other similar sized summerhouse we have seen. If privacy is something that you are concerned about, be it because you do plan on putting expensive things in here or you just want to strut around in the nude, then you could easily add in a set of blinds or curtains.
Customisation Options And Extras
They do not give you any customisation options with this summerhouse. To be honest though we really do not see what they could add or change. Although as you are required to treat the wood, you could always use a coloured wood treatment to give it just a little bit more personality.
They do offer a few extras with this small summer house. The first one is an installation service. £353 is how much the installation service would cost you and honestly that is just insane and we would not recommend paying that much for an installation service. That is over half the price of the actual summerhouse! For £22.99, you can get a 5 litre tub of Protek Wood Protector. This is a fair price, but if you do want to go for a coloured wood treatment then you may not want to go for this standard coloured wood treatment. The last extra they have is a Pro Shed Base which is something to consider if you are not too sure about the ground you will be installing the summerhouse on. This is priced at £49.99, which we actually feel is a fair price.
So, How Does It All Stack Up?
This is one very impressive summerhouse and had there been a slightly better locking mechanism included, we may have scored this a ten! This is high quality all the way through. They really have done an amazing job with this.
Longevity Of Materials9/10
The wood will need to be looked after by you. But as a structure this has been designed to last for many years. We can see you getting a lifetime of use out of this easily.
This is one of the smaller summerhouses we have seen, but we are sure for some people that makes it just perfect. For smaller gardens this is ideal and actually that 6 X 6 of space it offers can go much further than you would think.
Ease Of Installation8.5/10
We would stay away from that overpriced installation service if we were you. But this is actually not all that hard to install as long as you have a person to help and you do not take too many snack breaks. Then you should have this up and ready for pizza and beer in 6-8 hours at the very most.
Value For Money9/10
Over six hundred pounds may sound like a lot for a summerhouse of this size, but actually this is made with very high quality materials all throughout and it is going to last you for a very long time. So in this regard we feel that the asking price is very justified.
Final Thoughts: If you are in the market for a small summer house then you will just fall in love with the incredible Pinnacle 6ft x 6ft Gazebo Summerhouse. The conical roof and that smooth tongue and groove cladding make this something you will be proud to have standing in your garden. It is not just trying to get by on its looks either, as they have used some of the best quality materials. The frame and the cladding will make this structure stand strong for many years. The size may be a little on the small side, but we feel this just makes this the perfect choice for those with a small garden.
