As outside projects go, this one was frustrating. What should have been a straight forward two day build stretched out into several weeks due to the bank holiday showers and then the general change in weather. Ironic, after the excellent and consistent sunny summer.
These pictures were taken over several weeks as the summerhouse went up in stages:-
|Three part floor.|
The foundation was pre-made in three parts that just needed to be joined.
|Up it goes|
The next stage was screwing the panels to the floor and to each other. The panels are made of Redwood tongue & groove. The windows are made from Liteglaze acrylic sheet which is 8 times stronger than glass and is covered with protective covering which can be peeled off.
|Four walls and the door opening|
|Without a roof|
|On goes the roof and roofing felt.|
|Shutting up shop|
There is still a great deal of work to be done with installing door handles & locks, the guttering, roof facias, and several coats of paint to protect it from the elements during winter. More to follow in the next few weeks.
