When the weather picks up, it is only natural that we want to spend as much time outdoors as possible. If you have a garden, you’ll be out there from the beginning of spring until things start to cool down again in October.
However, if you don’t want to sit in the hot sun, a summerhouse will allow you to enjoy your outdoor space with a little protection from the rays.

Things To Consider When Buying A Corner Summer House
When choosing your summer house, there will be a lot of questions whizzing around in your mind. After all, you will want to make sure that your final decision is one that you will be happy with. To ensure that you always make the right choice, check out our buying tips below.
One of the most important factors to consider when choosing your summer house is its size. You should look at whether the dimensions fit with your garden but more importantly that the summer house has been designed to fit into a right-angled corner as this is what we find in most gardens.
The interior of the summer house should be large enough to comfortably house seating and your family. You may also want something that has room for tables and other furnishings so that you have everything you need.
Almost all summer houses are made from wood although there are some very high end ones that have a metal frame and glass windows but these are usually permanent structures.
When choosing a wooden summer house, you should look at the quality of the wood and whether it has been treated to make it last longer. For the most part, the wood will not be painted but you might wish to look at whether it is ready to paint so you can put your own stamp on the design.
If the corner you want to place the summer house in has overhanging structures like tree branches, then you might want to consider getting a pent roof which is flat and won’t interfere with these. Alternatively, if you have more overhead space, you may opt for an apex roof.
In any case, it is important to check whether the roof comes with an appropriate felt covering. This will provide a good level of waterproofing and will prevent the structure from becoming damaged.
Do you require planning permission for a summer house?
In most cases, you will not need to apply for planning permission to build a summer house. However, if you plan to erect a large summer house then the rules will change. You will need to apply for planning permission for summer houses that either cover more than half of your garden or which exceed more than 3m in height for a pent roof and 4m in height for an apex roof.
How much does a summer house cost UK?
The cost of the summer house will depend on several factors. The size and quality of the materials will impact the overall cost as well as whether you decide to have it professionally installed or do it yourself.
That said, in the UK, the average price of purchasing and putting up a summer house can be anywhere between £3000 and £4000. However, there are some summer houses that are much more affordable and can be bought for less than four figures although they tend to be on the smaller side.
What direction should a summer house face?
Most people would agree that a summer house should be in the sunlight to make the most of the nice weather. When you consider that the sun rotates towards the south, this would indicate that the sun house should face south to make the most of this.
