THE GARDEN BUILDING CENTRE, CHESTERFIELD
In Britain we love our gardens. From the Highlands of Scotland to the Home Counties and South West, and from Wales to the Wash few things occupy our minds, our time, and our leisure budgets so much as our gardens.
And what could be more pleasant than to watch your garden grow, entertain friends, answer your emails, or even relax in your Jacuzzi, from the year round warmth and comfort of a stylish and weatherproof PVCu summerhouse?
At the Garden Building Centre we have the products and the experience to help you enjoy your garden to the full, whatever the British climate throws at us. Our superb range of PVC garden building provides summer houses for every purpose - whether you want a free-standing conservatory, a home office, or just a place to relax in comfort. And because our high quality summer houses are manufactured in PVC, unlike timber summerhouses they are completely weatherproof and maintenance free.

Visit the Garden Building Centre
Should you wish to pay us a visit to see one of our PVCu garden building, or to chat through the options, you will find The Garden Building Centre at the heart of the Midlands, just 2 minutes drive from Chesterfield town centre at the junction of Sheffield Road (B6057) and Hazlehurst Lane. We are open from 10am-4pm, 7 days a week, and a trained professional will always be available in person or on the phone to help with the choice of garage model or with any issues concerning the choice and size of summer house, base preparation, or the provision of electric power.
Summer House Flexibility
Because our summer houses are robustly built in PVCu - essentially in the format of a free-standing conservatory - they are significantly more flexible in use than traditional summerhouses. When planning your summer house, you can think of it as a remote extension to your house, or as a part of the house that just happens to be in the garden! Our summer houses are warm and comfortable throughout the year and make an excellent home office, a weatherproof seating area, an outdoor dining area that laughs at a change in the weather, a quiet haven for reading, listening to music, or studying, or even a stylish home for your hot tub, Jacuzzi, or sauna. Some customers even use their summerhouse as an occasional guest bedroom for summer parties! Could you do that with a traditional summer house?
Three standard designs of PVCu garden building are offered in a range of sizes: the Langley Altea (square), Kensington Malaga (rectangular), and Coniston Marbella (octagonal), giving a wide choice with options to suit any type of garden, from a country cottage to a modern townhouse.
High Quality Summer Houses
All our Langley Altea, Kensington Malaga and Coniston Marbella summerhouses are built in the UK by leading manufacturer K2 and offer all the benefits and build quality of a conservatory from a high quality supplier. Furthermore, K2 is renowned for design innovation, and if you choose DIY installation, you will quickly appreciate why professional installers love to work with K2 systems, which feature a high number of clip in / slot in components to make installation quick, simple and trouble-free.
Not only is K2 a highly successful business in its own right with operations as far afield as the USA and Russia, but it is also part of The Burnden Group Ltd, providing additional resources of a £multi-million, international business. With a background like this, and superb quality products, a Manufacturers 5 Year Warranty is provided with ease and complete confidence.
Why a PVCu Summerhouse or Home Office?
All the benefits you would associate with a traditional PVC conservatory attached to your house, are there to enjoy with a PVC summer house. These buildings are made to last and last, and are virtually maintenance free. No draughts, no timber to treat, varnish or paint, and a perfectly respectable location for a small office-based business so that you can have a visitor without feeling as though you're entertaining them in the shed! Furthermore, our buildings are as secure as your house, with high security multi-point locking - an essential feature for any home office.
Our conservatory-style summer houses also provide a 360 degree view (if you chose to go for a fully-glazed option), so there's plenty of light at all times of day, and because the building is as robust and weatherproof as any other part of your house, you can easily add electric lighting to provide a truly 24-hour environment for business or leisure.
Installation is Simple
The advanced design features of these fabulous K2 buildings mean that installation to a high standard can be achieved by any reasonably competent DIYer. Each panel is supplied pre-glazed, so that none of the potentially tricky work of glazing is left for you to do. Simply click fit two panels into the sill and then join them using an aluminium strip which pulls the two panels rigidly together. This is repeated all round, and then the joints are covered with click fit trim strips to provide a really professional finish. The roofing system is unique to K2 and has many features to provide an easy installation - and, of course, all the roofing panels are pre cut for you.
Comprehensive installation instructions are supplied, and you will also have us to fall back on for any advice you may need. Alternatively - sit back and let our installation team do all the work for you! (See the Installation Service information below.)
If you're interested in summerhouses, you'll probably have seen many different designs at garden centres in your area. However, because our PVC summer houses are made to the highest conservatory manufacturing specifications, you can ask yourself the following questions:
How many summer houses have you seen with full glazing?
How many summer houses have you seen with high security multi-point locking?
How many summer houses have you seen with multiple opening windows?
How many summer houses have you seen with the latest thermo-efficient glass for superior heat retention?
How many summer houses have you seen that could truly be used all year round?
How many summer houses have you seen that will still look as good after five British winters, without major refurbishment?
How many summer houses have you seen with a 5 Year Manufacturers Warranty?
And a final question... shouldn't you be giving us a call?
Our Langley Altea, Kensington Malaga and Coniston Marbella summerhouses are all supplied as standard in stunning white PVCu, but, since many people may prefer a timber-effect finish for a garden building, we are also able to supply in a rich, textured Golden Oak finish which blends in beautifully with your existing garden and provides a very natural look - especially when complimented by your planting.
For those who prefer it, glass roofing panels are available using the latest, thermally-efficient glass, pre-cut for easy fitting. This option can be useful in a home office as it will be quieter during heavy rain.
As long established suppliers and installers of every type of garden building, from garages and sheds to greenhouses and conservatories, as well as our superb range of summer houses, The Garden Building Centre can offer every sort of back up you may need as you make a choice about this valuable addition to your garden. Although the Langley Altea, Kensington Malaga and Coniston Marbella summerhouses are all equally simple to fit, our nationwide installation service will be delighted to take on the work for you should you prefer.
