Rated 1 out of 5 by Rose12 Not as expected
This summerhouse was described as self assembly. It did not say it would take 48 minutes to unload from the lorry and would be in hundreds of pieces. It came with no screws or fixings and some of the wood was split or broken. We have had to put it together though as it was so late arriving and we did not want to wait another 5 to 6 weeks for another one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bob Excellent quality
Really pleased with this item. 19mm roof and floor as standard, normally pay extra for these, and the doors and windows came ready assembled. Still not finished but I don't work as quickly as I used to. Disappointed there were no felt nails or nails for the floorboards, but great, for the money, all the same.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jo Jo Good Item. But like a huge jigsaw puzzle
The item itself is great. Comes in just planks or wood and a roll of felt. The planks are not numbered and you have to work which is which and they are not the same as on the picture.
The instructions well worse than flatpack. The felt for the roof was poor so we have brought some more.
We are not experts but the instructions are poor to say the least the pictures do not match the log cabin we have brought. The wood is not the same as the wood they show in the picture you have to measure each peice to check which is meant to be which. They dont tell you about overhangs on roof or floor so you have to guess.
We have managed to build it but have some bits left over. The cabin has two doors not the one stated and has two windows. It is a great item when build.
We have one broken part but have managed to fit this ourselves.
I found it useful to put pencil numbers on the end of the wood and lay them out together. It took about a week to build but we do work full time. We are just painting it now.
I would recommend but you do need patients and a lot of extra space to lay out the parts. I would also recommend treating the wood before you build we didnt but I would if I would have thought about it. Despite the instructions saying to paint when completed.
