Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is a summer house?

    A summer house is an outdoor structure designed to enhance your outdoor space. Typically designed in timber, a summer house is flexible to provide a cool, shaded place to retreat from the summer heat, or a cosy hideaway for chilly spring and autumn days. With a multitude of different uses, our buildings are flexible contemporary spaces; ideal for use as a craft room, yoga studio or gym, or even as outdoor bar, our garden buildings provide a unique and beautiful space for an idyllic garden upgrade. You can also add supplementary security and aesthetic features. Choose a glass fibre effect or cedar shingle roof, additional windows, or glazed doors to create a light-filled space.

    Scotts garden buildings are designed in a range of shapes and sizes. Small and traditional, the Balmoral offers the perfect fit for a garden of any dimensions. Or you might want to make a splash with a sophisticated Newhaven corner summer house.

    Whatever the season, our luxury garden buildings can be enjoyed comfortably all year round enabling you to spend more time relaxing in your own, personal garden paradise. Store your garden furniture inside it during the winter and set it up again when summer returns and you are able to spend more time outside the house.

    All Scotts garden buildings are built with craftsmanship using premium high-quality sustainably sourced hardwood which means they are exceptionally durable and hardwearing. Our range of garden summer house designs, colours, shapes, and sizes.

  • Planning permission for Garden Rooms and Summer Houses

    Are you wondering about the necessity of planning permission for your dream summer retreat? Typically, summer houses and garden buildings fall under the category of ‘permitted development,’ eliminating the need for planning permission. However, certain criteria must be met. While we can offer general guidelines, each situation may vary.

    Please note that regulations can change, and what applies today may differ tomorrow. For tailored advice, it’s best to reach out to your local planning authority. They can provide specific guidance based on your location and project details.

  • Does Scotts deliver?

    Yes, all our summer house models, with the exception of the Balmoral, can be delivered to you wherever you live in the UK, and will be installed by our expert team. We have clients all over the country and can reach them with ease via our centrally based Northamptonshire headquarters. When you place your order, we will contact you to let you know the approximate timescales for production and agree a delivery date that is convenient for you.

  • Will Scotts install my summer house?

    Designed and manufactured with precision using high quality materials, the individual elements of your summer house will be delivered and erected on a stable pre-prepared base. Our team takes a pride in its work and every element of your build will be overseen by installers that have worked with Scotts for many years. We check that doors and windows fit together with a perfect seal and make sure you are happy with the completed build before leaving your premises.

  • Essential foundations for your Garden Building

    It’s crucial to establish a sturdy foundation for both stability and durability. We recommends constructing a firm base on a level surface to ensure the longevity of your structure.

    Before proceeding, it’s advisable to acquire the base plan specific to your chosen garden building. This ensures that the dimensions and size align perfectly with your project requirements.

    Alternatively, we offers an innovative solution with their ground screw base, ideal for supporting garden buildings on uneven terrain. Discover more about this convenient option to provide optimal support for your structure.

  • Where is the perfect spot for my Summer House?

    Here are some factors to consider before making your decision:

    1. Sun or Shade: Decide whether you prefer your summer house to bask in sunlight or nestled in the cool shade.
    2. Garden Placement: Choose between a central garden spot or a space-efficient corner for your retreat.
    3. Height Considerations: As all Scotts’ standard garden buildings exceed 2.5m in height, ensure compliance with planning regulations by positioning them at least 2m from your boundary. More info here.
    4. Orientation: Opt for a garden-facing view or position it to overlook your home.
    5. Rotating Base Option: Enhance flexibility with Scotts’ rotating base, allowing you to adjust the orientation of your summer room to follow the sun or alter your view. Available for select models.
    6. Power Supply: Consider installing a convenient power supply for added functionality.
    7. Year-Round Views: Keep in mind how the scenery changes throughout the seasons, ensuring your summer house remains visible or strategically positioned for year-round enjoyment.

    By carefully weighing these considerations, you can select the perfect location to create your ideal outdoor retreat.

  • Scotts' Choice Timber for Premium Outdoor Structures

    We pride ourselves on using top-quality materials to ensure the longevity and beauty of our outdoor structures.

    For the external cladding, wall framing, roof, doors, and windows, we utilise Red Grandis—a stable, durable, and dense hardwood timber. This premium-quality material is sustainably sourced from well-managed forests, offering both environmental responsibility and exceptional performance.

    Additionally, the flooring is crafted from high-quality European Redwood, certified by PEFC® for sustainability. To enhance its durability, it undergoes a vacuum pressure impregnation process with Osmose Naturewood.

    At Scotts, every piece of timber is carefully selected to guarantee a maximum lifespan and to create an outdoor living space of unparalleled quality.
