Japanese Summer House


Our elegant Summer houses for Japanese gardens are designed and pre-fabricated in our own UK workshops and can feature all the authentic detail such as a Shoji windiw and Shoji lattice handrail details.

We make them to order so that they are the ideal size and proportion for your project.  Our range of Japanese styles buildings are not light weight, flat-pack structures, but made from fully insulated floor, wall and roof panels,  timber trim (either treated softwood or Iroko hardwood) and Canadian Cedar shingles to clad the roof.

The modular panel walls are finished externally in a durable textured masonry paint, usually Sandstone colour, to contrast the decorative timber trim.  The choice of timber can be treated softwood finished in a quality dark brown stain, or Iroko hardwood that is oiled.  Please note that hardwood adds to the overall cost of the building.

The charm of our Japanese style buildings lies in the attention to detail such as the generous overhang of the roof and the natural granite ‘pad-stones’ that appear to support the building off the ground.

Summer houses are all custom built to suit your project, so expect to pay from £25,000 for a pre-fabricated Japanese Summer house kit. We are also able to offer a delivery and installation service at extra cost.  Please contact us with your enquiry.
