Reasonable product but poor materials and design., 12 April 2012
review by Brij Sharma
Rowlinson Ryton Octagonal Summerhouse 8x8
The instructions that arrived did not match the summerhouse that had been delivered. As a result spent the whole weekend with two friends trying to put it together. One of the doors was warped and the instructions for the roof were incorrect so there was a hole in it. Complained to Jacks and to be fair they sent someone out with some extra bits and a replacement door. Took the team of two people over six hours to replace the roof and felting. The floor is particularly flimsy and always feels as if it will break when walked on. The new door has warped and a couple of the windows. There is a lot of mould buildup in the summerhouse which affects mainly the inside of the roof as well as any contents. For an item costing around £1200 this is not acceptable.
Good looking and well built, 5 April 2012

Rowlinson Ryton Octagonal Summerhouse 8x8
Bought this product because of how it looked and some of the reviews. The parts were delivered in good condition with no damage or missing items. I chose to protect the individual sections before assembly which I think is advisable especially with the floor and wall base members. The roofing material is quite lightweight and I chose to overlay this with shingles bought from the local Wickes store which has improved the look and durability of the roof considerably . I am very pleased with the final Summerhouse both for its look and design, especially the large number of windows giving great views of the garden. I would recommend it to anyone.
Service and product very good, but one design quibble., 4 April 2012

Rowlinson Ryton Octagonal Summerhouse 8x8
Service and delivery were both excellent. A couple of window batons were missing, but after one quick phone call the replacement was prompt and efficient.

Good basic design, waterproof and solid. Love the shape, spaciousness and visibility from inside.

However, there is a design fault with the top window hinges. The screws which hold the hinges into the top of the window frame, actually screw into the GAP between the frame and the external panel cladding. i.e. not into a solid piece of wood. That means that the windows tend to drop, making them fiddly to open and close properly.

I have overcome it by filling the gap with a sawdust & glue mixture and pinning the cladding to the frame with extra screws. It wan't difficult, but I shouldn't have had to do it.

Otherwise happy with it, I spend quite a lot of time in there.

Yours, Mike Valpy
Excellent product., 4 April 2012

Rowlinson Ryton Octagonal Summerhouse 8x8
We purchased this summerhouse as it looked good and was perfect for the area of garden it was going to be placed. The service and delivery were excellent. The only light criticism was the roofing felt - we decided to put a heavier product on as the one supplied was a bit flimsy. All in all we were really pleased with it and have used far more than we thought and would highly recommend it to anyone.
