Totally delighted with everything. The quality especially. Everyone who visits agrees and in fact they will be buying similar for themselves.

Absolutely shocking summerhouse,,as my joiner whom I paid to erect said, it was like a cheap shed!
Arrived damaged, admittedly when I contacted the shire I was offered replacement parts but I would have to wait on them being delivered,
I was left with no option but to have it built and repaired from my joiner at extra cost to me,
Also asked the shire about a part that is missing ( A TRUSS that supports the roof and I have had no reply,,)
Poor show from a company that promotes great customer service.

I love it! This has to be the simplest thing we have ever put together. It took about 4hrs tops. We did have to shorten the facia boards but that was simple. One tip, don’t over screw in the screws because they will come through the frame. I only gave the sun house 4/5 because the plastic windows are dreadful! They mark easily and don’t clean very well. However, given the price I can’t grumble. Overall, this is a great buy.

Simple to construct,as long as you or the second persin has basic diy skills...
Instructions very clear...just make sure everything is fitting and square before screwing it all into place

Took 2 of us about 4 hours to install. Helps to have additional helpers when first flipping the 2 conjoined floor panels, and when lifting on the roof panels...oh and when we were first positioning the panels in place. Surpisingly, it went up quite smoothly. Instructions would be better if each step had a picture..ended up roughly sketching my own just to help plan in advance .....just for the panel drill/screw sequence. But instructions were fairly accurate. I chose the 10 x 10 ....and there was a final 150 mm piece that is supposed to go right at the top across the join for the 2 front upper cover strips....says centre of the building.....but i didnt have one....but to be fair i had this in the garage for a year before putting up! So i might have mistakenly discarded this odd small piece as packaging! Though its not in the picture on the website either. Roof front overhand was a bit too long, by ~ 20 mm.... as mentioned by another reviewer.....but was covered by felt and didnt need cutting back to size Final result looks very nice ...almost like website pic ! Plenty of fixings. Highly recommed ..good value product.

Shire Highclere Summerhouse 10X8 Size: (W) 10ft x (D) 8ft, Assembly Op

Arrived well within the time frame and on the first day of the 3 day window.

Assembling the house took around 4 hours, I would suggest at least 2 person job, 3 handy (for holding walls).

Instructions fairly straightforward to follow, just take your time. Plenty of screws and nails supplied.

Finished product, well the wife loves it and she can be seriously picky with things. As for me... well, the bar is built, optics fitted, bar stools in place... job done!

Now that it's completed this is a lovely medium sized summerhouse. But, and like other reviiewers, it took two deliveries to have the complete assembly kit. The initial delivery arrived without the 6 pieces of glazing. Delivery driver wss unaware of the incomplete order and as the delivery was last Saturday I was unable to contact the company until Monday morning to arrange 2nd delivery. Without the glazing (which, incidentally is perspex and not glass) i had been forced to buy some tarpaulin to protect the structure during recent bad weather.
Also, similar to other reviewers, the structure does need some 'tinkering' with a saw to cut some oversized pieces.
However, now it's completed it's a great summerhouse. Very sturdy and attractive. A small bar is the next thing to grace Highclere Summerhouse.
One tip, clear silicon is very useful to seal some joints and plug any gaps in the wood frame.

Shire Highclere Summerhouse 10X8 Size: (W) 10ft x (D) 8ft, Assembly Op

A very sturdy summerhouse. Well made but there were some quality control issues. It took three deliveries to get all the parts. Some of the parts were over sized and had to be trimmed, in particular the porch rook which was 30mm too long. Now that its built it is a popular place for all family members with a bar area at one end and an office working area at the other and plenty of room in between to store cycles overnight. It is very airy with loads of light and good headroom.

Shire Highclere Summerhouse 10X8 Size: (W) 10ft x (D) 8ft, Assembly Op

Good quality product, now it's up it looks exactly how it is pictured. It went together really easily and the instructions, though not always perfect, were certainly good enough to put the building up. All the parts fitted together as expected. What drew us to this is the distinctive shape with the small overhang at the front - and it doesn't look like a shed because of that design consideration. Overall very happy and satisfied, all we need now is a little more sun.
