Style and Design
The larger version of the Buttermere 6x6, the 8' x 6' model features the same attractive octagonal style but with double doors and an increased internal area. If it's a little large for your needs check out the 6x6 version.
As at 2019 the Buttermere 8x6 is being phased out and replaced by the Waltons 8x6 Octagonal summerhouse
The summerhouse is constructed in 12mm tongue and groove planed cladding on 45 x 27mm framing with a tongue and groove floor on 27 x 32mm bearers and a 9mm plywood roof finished with heavy duty mineral felt.
The windows, two of which can be opened, are styrene glazed in an attractive leaded style while the double two thirds glazed doors are hung with antique style hinges and secured with a rim style lock (which may vary from supplier to supplier). The Buttermere also comes with window boxes for a particularly attractive finish.
The building measures 8' x 6' (2.46 x 1.87 m) in area. Height is 6'6'' (1.96 m) at the eaves rising to 8'9'' (2.67 m) at the apex of the roof. The double door opening measures 5'10'' x 4'1.5'' (1.78 x 1.26 m).
Typically the Buttermere comes dip treated with a 10 year manufacturer's guarantee. Some suppliers may offer a free finish or basecoat if desired.
The Buttermere is a sectional building delivered flat packed ready for assembly by two persons.
