This is a basic summer house. The wood is quite poor quality. Some sections were damaged or not straight. It was fairly straight forward to construct but there were a number of gaps and the handle on the door is awful. It is however a good size and once painted it looks nice in our garden. It is safe to say you get what you pay for.
Good summerhouse. Would recommend

Good comms from the supplier, delivered at the agreed time. Easy to assemble. Seems good quality.
Not perfect, but good value for money.

Delivery was more like 5 weeks than the 2 promised, but it arrived at 1930 on the given day. Some of the external finished parts were rough, or fell apart due to the excess of knots. I used far more, and larger screws, than those supplied, but thats my choice. Roofing felt is not robust, so used my own 10 year rated. One roof panel had a chamfer in wrong direction, 30 seconds with a jigsaw fixed that. Doors do need the "constraints" supplied to limit warping. Thats the negative part.
Now the good parts Easy to assemble, instructions fine. Everything fitted . One man job with use of temporary external struts. Good basis for easy customisation- I have added vapour barriers, insulation, Pine panelling, electrical power & network, and an extractor fan-orient it towards the sun and even when overcast it gets warm. Overall, good value for money, just dont expect perfection for just over £500
Lovely bright and airy space.

Had to wait a little longer than the advertised time and actually got the review email before I had received the Summer House. Well made and easy to put together. Only downside was the window beading was cut too long and was very flimsy.
Good buy at just over £500

Great delivery and on a Weekend, perfect. Pleased with the overall finish. Went together really well, done most of it on my own and my wife held the odd panel or so when required. Instructions easy to follow, looks overwhelming at first but soon goes together with quick results. Treatment to wood from supplier looked a bit hit and miss in places but I gave it 2 good coats of Cuprinol which took longer than to build the shed! Couple of little splits here and there and wasn't as solid as I thought it would be but it's a wooden building at the end of the day so will expand and shrink with the weather anyway. As I said, pleased for just over £500 on the offer, that's why we bought it but wouldn't be to happy at nearly £800.
