The Ashby is our basic Summerhouse that will still give you lots of relaxing time in your garden.
Most buildings will come with (Ex15mm) 12mm finished tongue & groove matching on 47mm x 47mm pressure treated floor joists with an option to upgrade to a Heavy-duty moisture resistant 18mm v313 Caberboard flooring. All buildings over 8’ in each direction e.g. 8’ x 8’ but not 9’ x 7’ are upgraded as standard.
All buildings come with (Ex 19mm) 15mm finished tongue & groove matching on 47mm x 47mm & 47mm x 22mm roof bearers, although some larger buildings will have these bearers upgraded where necessary. There is a 0.38m (15”) roof canopy over the front of the building as standard on the Ashby. A Heavy-Duty Polyester based roofing felt is used as standard on all buildings. On all of our buildings there is a ventilation gap along the back of the roof. Apart from on the Pent style, there is the option to upgrade the felt-to-felt tiles or Cedar Shingles.
All buildings have (Ex15mm) 12mm finished tongue & groove shiplap fixed to 47mm x 47mm & 47mm x 22mm finished framework. We also offer an (Ex19mm) 15mm finished Tongue & groove loglap upgrade on these buildings.
The Ashby has a pair of doors 0.6m (24”) wide by 1.76m (70”) tall that have 3 panes of toughened glass in each door. The doors open to give a 1.2m (4’) opening. They are hung on silver hinges and come with a 5-lever lock & silver handle.
The Ashby has fixed windows alongside the doors in the front of the building only as standard, but windows can be added to the sides as an optional extra. The amount of windows depends upon the size of the building, a guide for this can be found at the bottom of this page. All the glass that we use is 3mm toughened for safety.
A 2’, 3’ or 4’ Veranda can be added to the Ashby as an optional extra. The 2’ Veranda has an open front whilst the 3’ & 4’ Verandas have spindles across to the doors on the front.
The Pent Ashby has a generous internal eaves height of 1.82m (6’) rising to an internal ridge height of 2.06m (81”).

Extra height can be added to the building as an upgrade. Please add an extra 7” on to these heights for the external dimension. The buildings complies with the 2.5m maximum height restriction imposed when erecting a building under Permitted Development.
Our buildings are treated both internally & externally with a spirit-based preservative that helps to protect the timber from fungi, woodworm & blue stain. We do recommend that buildings are retreated within 3 months unless painted and then every year for continuous protection.
All of our buildings can be upgraded to a painted finish.
