Summer Houses

At Jacksons we have a great selection of quality wooden garden summer houses. We have around 85 buildings on display, including many summerhouses at our show site in Birmingham.

Our wide range of quality timber summer houses and sheds include as standard; delivery, installation, timber treatment and a full tongue & groove construction.

There are various optional extras available such as a 2'6" or 4ft verandah, log lap cladding, cedar cladding, heavy duty floor, heavy duty felt, felt roof tiles and tanalised timber.

In addition we offer made to measure summerhouses.




Summer Houses


2'6" Verandah - Most of the Summerhouses can have a verandah added to the front.  This will enhance the appearance of your building, includes extended deck floor area and side sections.

4ft Verandah

4ft Verandah - This verandah has front returns in order to support the additional roof overhang.  This gives a nice large seating area or somewhere to shelter form the occasional Summer shower!

Tanalised BuildingsTanalised Buildings - to complement our range of factory treated buildings we offer a tanalised timber option using genuine Tanalith E product which gives an anti-fungal rot guarantee of 15 years.  We strongly recommend having the 3x3 Tanalised Bearers when specifying a Tanalised Summerhouse.  N.B. Tanalised buildings still need a coat of timber treatment ideally once a year to protect your building from the elements.

Painted BuildingsPainted Buildings - Your Summerhouses 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.

Cedar-Clad Buildings

Cedar-Clad Buildings - cedar wall cladding is offered as an option on most of our buildings.  Cedar prolongs the life expectancy of buildings as well a being aesthetically pleasing.

Log-Lap Cladding

Log-Lap Cladding - most of the sheds, summerhouses and playhouses can be built from Log Lap / Barrel Board wall cladding to give a log cabin effect building.

Cedar Clad Roof

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

Felt Roof TilesFelt 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.


 Lining Paper

Lining Paper - The interior of the walls are lined with a building paper. This is both practical and aesthetically pleasing.                                                                             

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 Shelving - 18" deep shelves can be fitted into most buildings at a height / length to suit you. Supplied un-treated.


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.

18mm Shiplap Wall Cladding - Standard on the Ryton Shed but can be added as an option to most buildings.

Rear Partition - Add a full height partition to combine a summerhouse with a storage shed. Price includes an additional door to the partitioned area either from within the summerhouse or from outside.

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

Building Made To Go Through Doorway - Some larger buildings, when build as standard, will not fit through a 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.

Summer Houses

What is included in the price?
All prices include delivery, installation and VAT. Delivery restrictions apply. Please 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 Summerhouse 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 Summerhouse?
A flat, level slab or concrete base, the same size as the shed as a minimum or ideally, slightly larger.  When laying a base close to a boundry fence, wall or trees, please bear in mind there is approx 6" of roof overhang on either side and 3-4" to the rear of most summerhouses.  If you require exact roof overhang deimensions please ask for details.  Timber garden decking also makes an ideal base as long as it is flat, level and of sufficient size.

What kind of access do I need into the back garden?
Please consider the dimensions of your Summerhouse 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.

Is a Tanalised Summerhouse maintenance-free?
No it's not.  A tanalised summerhouse will still require on-going treatment, probably not as much maintenance and care will be required compared to the standard dipped treatment though. Our tanalised buildings are made from timber that has been pressure-impregnated with a chemical called 'Tanalith E', also known as the tanalising process.  This gives the timber an anti-fungal rot guarantee but the timber will still need to be protected from inclement weather, ideally once a year with a good quality shed / summerhouse treatment.

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 Summerhouses?
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 building 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.
