Here at Bakers, we are redefining the "Summer house" no longer does it mean a spider-filled glorified shed. Whilst we still offer traditional uninsulated buildings, why not consider having an all year round summer house by adding insulation, double glazing and installing electrics.
Enjoy the summer in style and cosy up on dark winter nights in one of our beautiful tailor-made summer houses, designed to your specifications for all year round use and comfort - a true extension of your home.
Our project management service ensures that the process is efficient and stress-free, from planning permission to internet connection, we are committed to creating a space for you to love. We provide ground clearance services and base work and will take care of all plumbing and electrical installation once the building is completed, including Sky and internet connections.
Each summer house is tailored to you, planned to meet your size and budget constraints. We design every house, not just for comfort, but to maximise space and complement the surroundings, so whether you are interested in a contemporary and sleek design or a more classic look, we can promise a beautiful summer house to fit your garden.
Enjoy the British summertime in the comfort of your own garden in one of our tailor-made summer houses, designed with your every need in mind. We are proud to offer a wide range of building options and service packages to ensure that your summer house is a beautiful, light and warm space to relax in. All of your requirements are carefully catered to, so whether you need a space to pursue hobbies, or you would like a cosy room to relax, we will keep your wishes in mind at every step.
Bi-folding doors are doors that concertina. Bi-folding doors offer seamless living, where the indoor and outdoor meet. Runners can be laid on the floor to support the doors so that the wooden floor can continue on the outside meaning that when the doors are opened, the outside becomes an extension of the living area. It opens up your living space allowing indoor and outdoor living so you can make use of the good weather. Equally the doors can be built in such a way that when the doors are closed the summer house is fully insulated, and therefore energy efficient in the colder months.
Our summerhouses are fully lined and insulated. The walls can be timber and painted as per specification. The colour of the bi-folding doors can be painted to match the interior design of the summer house. Another option is to use tri-folding doors, which offer the same as bi-folding doors in terms of living spaces except they come in panels of 3.
Our tri-sliding doors also create elegant, bright spaces. More glass and less frame allows the maximum amount of light into your home. The effect gives you an impressively clean open-space with vast individual sections of glass.
Some clients like to use their summer house as a hot tub room. However, we can also split the garden room in such a way that it becomes a multi-purpose building with an indoor liveable area, which can be used as a gym, a swimming pool or a sunroom. And then outside next to it is a sheltered hot tub area with a canopy over it, meaning it can be used all year round.
If you are looking to extend your living space without going outside, we can also provide lean-tos or attached conservatory porches, instead of summer houses. These can be integrated into the house and by using high-glass windows, that can bring extra light into your home.
Entertain family and friends or enjoy a peaceful space to relax alone in a bespoke timber-built house. We provide a tailored service to ensure that your summer house fits perfectly with your spatial and functional needs, allowing you the finish you want and the room to express yourself and your individual taste. We provide a personal service that carefully draws together your exact specifications and requirements and our expertise.
Our comprehensive range of summer houses even offer you seasonal choices, from year-round houses designed for use in all weathers to the more traditional summer house ideal for spending warm days and light evenings relaxing with family and friends
We offer three principal constructions in our garden summer houses:
• Traditional single skins
• Four walls lined only - in timber or painted finish
• Fully lined, insulated and double-glazed
All fully lined, insulated and double glazed houses are designed for year-round use and comfort, built to be warm and functional spaces, ideal for all weathers and requirements. Traditional single skin houses are ideal primarily for summertime use, providing a haven to while away hot days in an elegant and stylish space.
Our services include dismantling and removing old buildings, ground preparation and a range of landscaping options.
We designed and built a contemporary summer house with bi-fold doors in Sussex. The aluminium bi-folding doors were colour matched to the exterior wall colour. The doors are made out of top-of-the-range planitherm, with argon bio coolight glazed units, which means they retain heat when it's cold outside, and prevent the UV rays from entering when the sun shines to stop the greenhouse effect. In this particular build, we installed state of the art home entertainment system and lighting where the summer house has a TV, phone line and WIFI bubble, and mood lighting which all can be run off a tablet device or smartphone.
