Style and Design
The Buttermere is designed in an attractive octagonal style to sit prettily in the corner of any garden, providing shade in summer, shelter in winter and a sure talking point all year round. A compact model, it will sit neatly in the corner of even the smallest garden. If however you are looking for something a little larger in the same style the Buttermere 8' x 6' octagonal log cabin is a tailor made alternative.
Please note that the Buttermere 6'x6' octagonal corner summerhouse is a variation on the Winchester 6x6 which we list separately. Both are essentially the same building but are marketed under a number of names, sometimes with minor variations. You can view the various versions via the sellers above and in our Winchester 6'x6' Octagonal Corner Summerhouse feature.
The summerhouse is constructed in 12mm tongue and groove planed cladding on 45 x 27mm framing with a tongue and groove floor on 27 x 32mm bearers and a 9mm plywood roof finished with heavy duty mineral felt. The windows, two of which can be opened, are styrene glazed in an attractive leaded style while the single two thirds glazed door is hung with antique style hinges and secured with a rim style lock (which may vary from supplier to supplier). The Buttermere also comes with window boxes for that delightful finishing touch.
Externally the building measures 5'11'' x 5'11'' (1.87 x 1.87m) with a maximum roof height of 8'7'' (2.62m) dropping to 6'3'' (1.9m) at the eaves. Internal floor measurement is 5'8'' x 5'8'' (1.75 x 1.75m). The door opening is 5'10'' x 2'1'' (1.78 x 0.64m).
Typically the Buttermere comes dip treated with a 10 year manufacturer's guarantee. Some suppliers may offer a free finish or basecoat if desired. If the summerhouse is delivered with only a dip treatment you will need to apply a final decorative/preservative finish at the time of assembly. This will preserve the structure and appearance of the building and, provided the finish is regularly maintained, will enable you to benefit from any applicable guarantee.
The Buttermere is a sectional building delivered flatpacked ready for assembly by two persons.
