Summer is a great time to get out and enjoy the garden. If you’re spending much of the summer at home, it’s a great time to do some DIY renovations. So if you’re in the mood, why not experiment and have a go at one or more of the following:
- Renovate your garden shed
- Create a summerhouse
- Build a gazebo for your BBQ area
- Create a tranquil hideaway
- Create a playhouse for the kids
- Build your own home office
Renovate your garden shed
The garden shed can take a lot of weathering over the year. Rain, wind and even sunshine can impact the structure, leaving it leaking and looking very weathered and tired. Here’s some tips for renovating your shed this summer
Create your own summerhouse
Creating your very own summer house is a garden job that really is worth taking the time to get done. Summerhouses can be used as a tranquil hideaway to relax and unwind with some ‘me time’, or if you are a socialite, your summerhouse will be the perfect spot for hosting your social gatherings. Whatever the requirement, a summerhouse will help to give your outdoor space the best chance of looking fantastic this summer.
Build a gazebo
Gazebos can be a great addition to your garden and whilst it’s hot, the summer months are a great time to renovate or build a gazebo to create your perfect outdoor seating area or BBQ area.
If you have an old gazebo or pergola in your garden, why not spruce it up by installing Onduline’s lightweight roofing systems. BARDOLINE roof shingles from Onduline are available in a choice of colours and are easy to fix and install plus they are AA fire rated making them the versatile roof system for all kinds of roofs.
Create a children’s playhouse
To keep the kids entertained this summer, have a go at creating their very own garden playhouse to encourage hours of imaginative and inspired play. Not only will this keep the children busy and safe, but it’s much more fun for them to invite their friends into their own little house rather than bring the mess in to your space.
Our ONDULINE EASYLINE compact sheets have been developed specifically for smaller compact roofs and are the perfect covering for a child’s playhouse. Available in a choice of intense colours to add a splash of colour to the roof.
Build your home office
Create the perfect home office space by renovating your garden shed into your perfect workspace.
A garden office not only adds additional space to your home, but can also provide the perfect hideout for work, leisure, or relaxation.
Our range of lightweight roofing solutions are perfect for covering your new space. We have eco-friendly corrugated sheets and roof shingles available in a choice of colours and a range of building plastics to create watertight rooflights for windows.
