Please note the playhouse is not supplied painted and does not come with felt roof tiles - these are available as optional extras above.

This playhouse is made to order and therefore the delivery lead time is slightly longer than the smaller Shire playhouses.

An installation service is available for this playhouse together with an optional top coat treatment - see Accessories list above for details.
Should you opt for an installation with roof tiles, please note there is an additional charge for this - please see Accessories list above.

The Shire Cottage Playhouse 6x8 is supplied with an industry standard base coat for protection during transit. We recommend it is treated with a suitable decorative wood finish within 3 months of assembling.  The playhouse should then be treated at least annually thereafter to extend its life.

All Shire playhouses have safety glazed windows, safety hinges, roofing felt and a preservative base coat.
