Alton have now taken garden buildings to a new and sophisticated level, with a superb range of sylish, cedar clad summerhouses, allowing you to enjoy your outdoor leisure time, no matter the weather.
From conception, through design to manufacture, every care has been taken to make these stunning outdoor living spaces easily assembled. As well as being delivered in pre-assembled panels, all the doors and windows are ready glazed and fitted, so you won't need comprehensive joinery skills, as the hard work has already been done for you.
Quality is at the heart of each summerhouse; from the choice of timber, the satin chrome and stainless steel fixings, to the toughened safety glass. All of the cladding, windows, doors and external trim are made from 100% Canadian Western Red Cedar, having been selected for its natural resisitance to warping, twisting and decay. Despite this, all of the timber is treated with a clear, oil-based preservative, which not only gives additional protection, but also brings out the warm and varied hues of the timber itself: from near white, to light straw, pinkish orange and rich reddish-brown. The appearance is further protected by the use of stainless steel screws, which won't rust over time and cause unsightly discoloration. Protection and durability run from top to bottom, from the pitched, red felted marine ply roof (which can be upgraded further, with optional cedar slatting), to the 19mm thick tanalised pressure treated redwood floor.
Alton summerhouses come in a range of sizes, aimed at suiting every budget as well as every garden size.
For the smaller property, we have the 6x6 Shipton which, whilst more compact, has a deceptively roomy feel, due to the four 3/4 length glazed Georgian windows, and glazed single door to the front.
Slightly wider, at 6x8, is the Chatsworth, which has the addition of two hinged lockable doors, and as with all Alton summer house doors, has stainless steel hooked catches to stop the open door from being blown in the wind.
The 8x8 Tetbury, whilst more spacious, has a cosy and tranquil feel. It is fitted with a single lockable hinged door, and is an ideal building for a home office or craft space; the perfect, peaceful outdoor haven, for any aspiring artist or writer.
Entertain even more friends, with the wider 8x9 Mickleton. Open the double doors and all four of the hinged Georgian windows, and enjoy this wonderfully airy and spacious building.
If you seriously like to entertain, and can't bear to leave anyone off your guest list, the 10x10 Broadwell makes for the ferfect outdoor venue. The sense of space is further enhanced by the 8 hinged Georgian windows, and the glazed double doors to the front.
Please remember, you aren't simply buying a summerhouse, you are buying an outdoor lifestyle, which you can enjoy all year round, safe in the knowledge that the superb quality and beautiful finish of your Alton summerhouse will endure the hottest summer as well as the wettest winter for many many years.
