Summer Houses

Garden Summer Houses

Summer houses have a variety of exciting uses. Make it a place to enjoy beautiful summer days with family and friends or a quiet space of relaxation to escape the hustle and bustle of the family home. Available in a variety of shapes and sizes and with all manner of extras including porch steps, verandas or even canopies, here at Cedar Garden Rooms we have a summer house for all gardens and budgets. All of our summer houses are fully insulated and built with Canadian cedarwood, which also provides natural insulation of its own, denying damp and providing protection against the elements. All the materials used in the construction of our garden rooms are of the highest possible quality and are sourced from leading suppliers all over Yorkshire.

Corner Garden Summer House

It can be tricky to find an appropriate plot in your garden for a summer house. Challenges in where best to position the door or simply around the shape of the building itself are commonplace, which is why corner summer houses are so popular. Designed with your garden’s contours in mind, corner summer houses enable you to make the most of your garden’s space whilst experiencing panoramic views.

Contemporary Garden Summer House

Designed with modern-day living in mind, all summer houses come with fully furnished skirting, door architrave, flooring, electrical sockets and lighting. We are also pleased to offer additional extras to enhance both the interior comfort of our garden rooms as well as the external appearance. We work with trusted partners in the areas of: flooring, heating & cooling systems, landscaping, paving & garden design, telecoms & audiovisual set up, sound-proofing, and kitchen & bathroom installation.

Traditional Garden Summer Houses

There’s no better addition to a garden than a traditional summer house. Apex roofs and Georgian style windows are a common feature for those who want their summer house to reflect the traditional appearance of their home. Use this traditional garden building as a garden office or a stylish place to enjoy your garden and unwind during the summer months.

Can You Use Garden Summer Houses in Winter?

Far from being chilly and drafty, our summer houses are fully insulated, which when combined with additional heating will make your garden room the cosiest part of your home in even the coldest weather conditions. Use it as a place to enjoy a coffee on a bright winters morning or decorate it with tinsel and fairy lights during the festive season. You could even install a small fireplace and spend the evenings inside reading a book or watching a film, as the nights start to draw in.

If you’d prefer to only use your summer house when the weather is warm, that does not mean your summer house is rendered useless during the winter months. As a result of the natural insulation of the Cedar Wood and the in-built insulation, a summer house provides great security against the elements during the autumn and winter as garden storage for items such barbecues, golf clubs or even garden furniture, making it a more attractive alternative to traditional garages, once the spring and summer months pass.

Do summer houses need planning permission?

In the majority of instances, planning permission is not required for a summer house. Permission is only required for a summer house that covers over half the garden and isn’t intended for domestic use – or is over 3 meters high with a pent roof or 4 meters high with an apex roof. Because all our summer houses are bespoke, we can ensure yours is built to the specifications that fit your requirements.

Can a summer house add value to my property?

Summer houses are a great investment as not only are they stylish and practical addition to your home, they can also boost the value of your property when the day comes that you decide to sell. Furthermore, unlike other methods of increasing the value of a property such as an extension or loft conversion, planning permission is not usually necessary.

What else can I use my summer house for?

If your interest is in making the most of your storage space, then consider a summer house garden shed that combines a convenient storage area with a relaxing area to escape by using half the building as a traditional shed and the other half as a cosy retreat. Use the garden building as a cosy retreat as well as somewhere to store garden power tools, outdoor furniture or bikes.
