Play Houses

Painted Buildings

Painted Buildings - Your Play House can be supplied factory spray painted in a choice of 30 different colours. The components are fully dipped first in a base coat and then are factory sprayed (2 coats) in a choice of up to 3 colours per building.

Log-Lap Cladding

Log-Lap Cladding - Specify Log Lap / Barrel Board wall cladding on you Childrens' Playhouse to give an attractive log cabin effect building.


Playhouse Verandahs

Playhouse Verandahs - Enhance the appearance of your building by adding a 2ft verandah to the front.  Some of the playhouses have verandahs as standard.


Felt Roof Tiles

Felt Roof Tiles - Available in 4 different colours, this is a popular addition for playhouses and summerhouses but is available on all buildings. Colours - Black, Red, Green and Brown.

Cedar Clad Roof

Cedar Clad Roof - A lovely addition, cedar-clad roofing will enhance the appearance of any building.


Tanalised Bearers

Tanalised Bearers - Prolong the life of your shed by raising it up on tanalised bearers. These 3" x 3" pressure-treated timbers allow additional air circulation under your building thus protecting your floor joists and floorboards during wet weather.

Heavy-Duty Felt - Up-grading to thicker green mineral felt on the roof, ideal to prolong the life of your building.

18mm Heavy Duty Floor - A really popular optional extra, ideal for buildings that are used regularly or if heavy items are to be stored inside.

Extra Height - Increase the height of your building as required.

Building Made To Go Through Doorway - Some of the sections of the larger playhouses, particularly the 2-storey ones, will not fit through a standard height doorway.  If access to the back garden is restricted, these larger buildings can be manufactured in smaller components if necessary.

This is just a selection of the optional extras that are available. Please see the price list for the complete range.

Play Houses

What is included in the price?
All prices include delivery, installation and VAT. Delivery restrictions apply.  Please click on which building you would like and then click "Prices & Delivery" for more details.

Can you provide an installation service?
Yes, it is included in the price.  There are sometimes discounts available for "delivery only" or even further savings if the building is collected from our show site.

Are the play house dimensions internal or external?
The dimensions given are external and in most instances are full Imperial measurements.  When measuring, please allow for roof overhang.

What base do I need for my play house?
A flat, level slab base, concrete base or wooden decking, the same size as the building as a minimum or ideally, slightly larger.  Please ensure that your base is layed slightly away from any obstructions such as fences or trees as all playhouses have roof overhang to the sides and rear that make them slightly larger than the sizes specified on our website.

What kind of access do I need into the back garden?
Please consider the dimensions of your play house when ordering. Some of the larger buildings require 8ft height access for some of the sections to be carried to the base.  We do not take buildings over garage roofs, high fences, walls etc. If necessary, buildings can be custom made in smaller components so they can fit through a restricted access.  This normally carries a surcharge.

What is the delivery lead time?
Approximately 10 - 14 days locally or 3 - 4 weeks if you aren't in the Birmingham / Midlands area.  We keep some standard Apex sheds in stock if you require a shed urgently.

What are the payment terms for play houses?
We take a small deposit and the balance is payable to the installers either in cash or by credit / debit card.  (There is no extra charge for cards).

What guarantee do I get with my building?
A 12 month guarantee against leakage, door sticking, lock failing etc.  As timber is a natural product we recommend that you treat your shed within 3 months of installation and once a year thereafter.

Can you do "made to measure" buildings?
Yes we can, within reason, as long as the building is square or rectangular.  If you require a 9'x 4' or 10'x 5' for example, please refer to the next standard size up - 10'x 6'.  This will give you a rough idea of price.  For an exact price, please contact us.  We cannot supply buildings that taper from front to back or that do not have 90 degree corners.
