Influenced by the Malvern Tudor, the Countryside Hipped summer house is a truly elegant and handsome building that’s immediately eye-catching and inviting to all. With a spectacular hipped roof, it is the perfect garden room for relaxing, working or catching up with your favourite book.
The Countryside Hipped is supplied with ¾ length opening and fixed windows, a preservative treatment throughout, 4mm toughened safety glass, a solid timber felted roof and 3-lever mortice lockable double doors. You can truly make this building your own and as you choose the cladding, roof, windows and doors styles. These superb optional extras allow you to tailor your building to suit your style.
The Countryside range also offers a choice of cladding profile. Choose from traditional shiplap, as featured prominently in the Malvern summer house range, or square cladding - a contemporary and stylish cladding profile.
At GBC, we are continuously striving to improve our products, methods and materials, which means we may change the specification of a product or range from time to time, but we will not make any significant changes without your agreement
Please look at our image gallery which will show you various sizes and styles of these buildings along with pictures of their construction and optional items.
Choice of Timber Cladding
Choose between 12mm redwood, 12mm pressure treated redwood, premium cedar, 19mm redwood or 19mm pressure treated redwood. The 12mm and 19mm redwood are pre-treated with a water based preservative inside and out before it leaves the factory. The 12mm and 19mm pressure treated redwood has a long-lasting treatment forced deep inside the timber giving the timber an attractive green hue which compliments 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.
All Countryside range buildings are supplied as standard with a green, red or black colour felt roof.
Black Antique Ironmongery
The Countryside range includes black antique japanned ironmongery as standard
Lockable Double Doors
Just like the Malvern Tudor summer house, a 3-lever mortice lockable double doors are included with every Countryside Hipped summer house for your safety and security.

The roof is finished with Canadian cedar shingles in this example which are available to special order only. They are laid over the standard felt roof.
The 8ft x 8ft Countryside Hipped is shown here with optional diamond leaded windows and a red felt roof : the cladding is redwood.

The Countryside Hipped comes in a choice of three different timbers : Cedar or redwood cladding or pressure treated construction throughout. This demonstrates a couple of other features too ... full length glazing in the doors and side windows (two top-opening lights are included), a pressure treated slatted roof, brass door and window fittings, and floor bearers.
All glazing is with toughened safety glass.
This is the Countryside Hipped constructed with pressure treated timber. There's a description of the benefits of this type on construction further down the page but good looks come high up the list!
This particular display model has the optional pressure treated slatted roof and brass window and door fittings.
This 10 x 8 Countryside Hipped has our standard large window format which makes the building light and airy. To create even more daylight an additional window is included on each side of this display model.
All of our summerhouses are glazed with toughened safety glass for peace of mind.
The Countryside Hipped is roomy and good looking, purpose built to provide a focal point in your garden.
This example is 10ft wide and 8ft deep. It is constructed with redwood cladding and has standard long line windows which are glazed with toughened safety glass. It features four optional upgrades ... Firstly the floor bearers which keep the floor joists up off the ground and therefore extend the life of the building considerably. Secondly it has a cedar overlap roof fitted over the normal felted roof: this is attractive but also protects the felted roof beneath. Thirdly the brass pack. Finally, if you look very carefully, you will also notice two windows fitted each side whereas one is standard
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 summerhouses their green / yellow hue which complements so many gardens.
Good looks and an extended lifetime are the main benefits of choosing pressure treated construction.
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' summerhouses contain cedar doors, windows and external cladding and trims. They have preservative treated redwood framing, floors and verandahs ( where fitted ).
There are 5 window styles available with our summerhouse range.
From L to R these are Plain, Square Lead, Diamond Lead, Georgian, and Full Length Glass.
The exact layout, numbers of windows, and positioning is discussed on the pages relating to each product but for a general overview this is a useful comparison.
