The Best Summerhouses For Sale

On days when you don’t want to stay at home, a summer house offers the perfect escape haven. From the moment the UK welcomes the sunny days until they turn fireside reds and gold. Or when the wintry sun has taken centre stage and greets the dawn of spring later.

All this proves that garden summer houses aren’t only bound for warmer months. Investing in one is a sound financial decision. In this post, we’ll look at the best range of summer houses to help find you the perfect garden space hideaway!

Why Invest in Wooden Summerhouses?

Garden summer houses offer the opportunity to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. This doesn’t set them apart from other garden buildings like log cabins. Year-round use is also part of their fantastic advantages. But what makes them incomparable from the rest is their “hits close to home” structure.

A summer house gives an outdoor living space feel – not just a mere storage-like outbuilding. And that’s the point! It takes the indoor “hygge” outdoors and thus makes it feel homey as if it’s your second home – in your case, a garden house.

Besides being an extra living space, the possibilities are endless for transformation ideas. A stylish summer house also makes a unique office space. This allows you to separate home life from work with the luxury of relaxation in between. A larger model, like a 16×8 summerhouse, is perfect for an office environment.

And, of course, there’s the ‘instant focal point’ it gives for your outdoor space. Plus, the added value it can provide to your property. You can enjoy having a garden summerhouse for now and reap the benefits when it’s time to sell.

Note: Additional insulation is also worth considering. Your wooden garden house will be able to keep more warmth in the winter months, keeping it cosy inside. And when the mercury soars, the insulation will hold the coolness so you can relax cosily.
