The Malvern Arley Apex High combines both a summerhouse and garden office. Based upon our popular Malvern Arley Apex garden room, the building is double glazed throughout, with the option to add lining and insulation. This stunning garden room is perfect for all year round use.
The Arley Apex High stands higher at the ridge and eaves than the standard Arley Apex giving additional headroom for a more 'roomy' feel. Each building comes with 4 double glazed windows as standard and a double (double glazed) door. The floor of the Arley Apex High has pressure treated joists to ensure that it will last for many years without decay and an optional laminate floor is available in a choice of contemporary styles. To ensure this building fits into your garden space, you may specify the position of the doors and windows (some restrictions apply).
As standard, each Malvern Arley Apex High has modern chrome ironmongery, a five lever mortice lock for added security, 38kg bitumen felt roofing (red, green or black), rot proof pressure treated floor joists and a preservative treatment throughout. Our great range of optional extras gives you the ability to tailor your Arley Apex High to your own style. By adding either the patterned MDF or tongue and groove lining and insulation your Arley can be used all year round - keeping you warmer through the winter months.
Please take a look at our photo gallery which will show you various sizes of this building along with pictures of its construction and optional items.
Choice of Timber Cladding
Choose between redwood, pressure treated, cedar, heavy duty redwood or heavy duty pressure treated. The redwood cladding (both standard and heavy-duty), are pre-treated with a water based preservative inside and out before it leaves the factory. The pressure treated cladding (both standard and heavy-duty), has a long-lasting treatment forced deep inside the timber giving the timber an attractive green hue which complements gardens well. The Western Red Cedar is a beautiful and versatile timber which produces its own natural oils and preservatives making it a durable and rot-resistant species of timber, perfect for a garden summer house.
Double Glazed Windows and Doors
As standard, the Malvern Arley includes half-height, double glazed windows and doors with a single half-height window either side of the front gable end. This maximises light into your building - perfect for all uses!
Additional Ridge Height
With additional ridge height allows more creative possibilities - use as a home gym, for your business, playroom and many more.
All Malvern Arley and Studio range buildings are supplied with chrome window and door furniture, bringing a high-quality finish to your summerhouse.

Choose Your Colours
Customise your building with a range of beautiful countryside colours:
This 20ft x 12ft Malvern Arley Apex High site office is located at our Hagley branch. The office has been customised to our requirements and features an internal partition with painted door, two privacy vent windows (located in the back office), painted MDF lining and insulation (for all year round use), a hard wearing laminate floor and a stylish medium oak external finish.
Standard features include double opening doors, double glazing and as the name suggests, taller eaves for a comfier working environment.
Walls and roof can be insulated and lined either with tongued and grooved pine or with mdf as pictured. This enables the building to be used all year round with a minimum of heat loss. We heat our offices with a floor standing convector heater which can maintain a minimum heat overnight and a pleasant working temperature during the day.
The optional tongued and grooved pine lining inside the Arley Apex High is carefully fitted to provide a pleasant working environment. Because the walls and roof are insulated when the building is lined, the Arley Apex High will become suitable for all year round use.
We recommend heating the Arley Apex High with electric thermostatically controlled convector heaters. You can set these to maintain a minimum temperature when you aren't using the building so that paper and equipment remain at the appropriate temperature.
We are able to offer a selection of attractive laminate floors for our Arley range which, if you choose to have our bespoke fitting teams to install your building, will be fitted at the same time.

Pressure treatment is literally that: all components of the building are placed in a large pressurised cylinder which forces the preservative deep into the timber. The formulation of the preservative gives our pressure treated buildings their green / yellow hue which complements so many gardens.
Good looks and an extended lifetime are the main benefits of choosing pressure treated cladding.
Cedar is well known for its durability, good looks and quality. With its own natural oils, it lasts for many, many years without rotting although we would advise you to treat it with a good quality wood preserver every couple of years to help maintain its good looks.
Our cedar Garden Offices contain cedar doors, windows and external cladding and trims.
This picture shows the cedar slatted overlap roof finish available for the Arley Apex High. Laid over an inner felted roof this gives double protection to the building and is an attractive addition which will weather over the years to a silver grey colour.
Shown here on our Stanford shed range, the principle is exactly the same for the Arley Apex High.
The Arley Apex High roof can have pressure treated slats for an extra touch of style at an additional cost. These are laid over a felted inner roof which ensures that it is double weatherproofed!
Cedar slatted roofs are available too. Other options include felt tiles or cedar shingles.

All of our Malvern Garden Offices will be delivered and installed (where applicable) by our skilled team of fitters - ensuring that your garden office arrives in perfect condition and it is assembled to the highest standard.
Please be aware that you will need to provide a good, strong and level base constructed from either slabs or concrete. This will need to be completed prior to our delivery date, ensuring that it is set and strong enough for that building to sit on.
We will always confirm these details with you at point of order and we will provide you with base plans so that no detail is left out - ensuring that your garden office will be both delivered and installed without any inconvenience.
As with all of our garden buildings, we like to provide our customers with a suitable delivery time. We always give good notice of our arrival date, allowing you to be sure it is the right time for you. We always appreciate any helpful information regarding access to your pre-prepared base area and any details you may need to share with us about reaching you - so that the delivery process can run as smoothly as possible.
Our delivery times can vary from season to season, but typically you should expect to receive your building around 4-6 weeks from point of order. All of our buildings are made to order, so during the busy spring to summer seasons this may increase to 6-8 weeks - dependant on the building that you purchase. Please feel free to contact us on 0800 999 0123 to check our current delivery times.
