Not only offering you a wonderful place to relax but a generous garden storage facility too, the Shire 12 x 8 Aster Summer house Combination is handmade to order in the UK exclusively from premium materials, making it the ultimate garden building. This superior garden office is built from slow-grown, high-grade, FSC-certified timber. Supported by a sturdy 44mm square frame, the 12mm shiplap tongue and groove clad walls are extremely robust, while the 12mm tongue and groove floor is designed to withstand years of frequent use. The pent roof is also constructed from premium 12mm tongue and groove and enjoys a mineral felt covering, so will effectively keep you and your prized possessions sheltered from the rain.

Featuring 4 fully-glazed, bi-fold doors, which open out onto a beautiful 2-foot deep decked area, the 8’6 x 5’7 summer house section boasts 2 additional full-length windows, so whether you’re relaxing with a good book or working from home, you will enjoy an abundance of natural light. All of these windows are built from near-unbreakable styrene, which is reassuring if you have young children or enjoy playing ball games in your garden The Aster has been dip-treated to provide a 10-year anti-rot guarantee, when supported by annual retreatment. To increase the weather-resistance of your summer house, opt for our Top Coat upgrade.
