I would like to thank to gentleman whom I spoke to on the telephone regarding difficulty in erecting the Lean-to Greenhouse 041.
After many hours of trying to understand the instructions and diagrams of the greenhouse, I spoke to the gentleman (who's name evades me) and he kindly sent several photos he had taken of the front section - door etc. - and I was a huge help.
I am pleased to say the said greenhouse is now up and running.
Thank you once again.

Dear Summer Garden Team
My sincere apologies for not writing sooner to thank you for the replacement window, the young man that delivered it was a very nice person and very helpful.
I didn't know if you would be interested to see the finished results of two old pensioners, who would like to thank you for all your help and advice during the build. We've never attempted anything like this before, and the decking was a challenge, but we got there in the end and are happy with our results.
We are very pleased with our purchase and hope to spend many happy hours in our new cabin. It's tidied up what was a rather untidy corner of our garden!
Thank you again.
Diana, Winscombe, Somerset, BS25, 8x8 Corner Log Cabin 200, 15th August 2015
Thank you for great service even with missing part all sorted quickly, greenhouse great

First of all, thank you for your phone assistance yesterday on the corner panel assembly. They are now ready to go. However, while sorting them out I took my eye (& the weight) off the assembly instructions which disappeared in a gust of wind.
I am sure I could complete it without them but if it's possible to e-mail me a copy it would be much appreciated.
Once again, thanks
We are very pleased with our new summerhouse which was erected yesterday.

I ordered a 10x6 pent shed at the beginning of June, although it took a long time for delivery I can only say it was worth it. No parts missing, Assembly needed two people and took about two and a half hours.The only criticism I have is it needed extra screws in roof and sides to make it solid. I have also the highest praise for the man who delivered it and carried it through to my garden on his own.
Anthony, Cobham, Surrey, KT11, 6x10 Pent Shed 128, 1st July 2015
I have just had my new greenhouse installed ( looks fantastic ! ) and my installer says that one of the 3 auto vents is not working . He beleives there is a problem with the cylinder .

I'm just writing to say that the young man who delivered our cabin was absolutely brilliant. So helpful and kind that he deserves a recommendation. What a shame there aren't more like him in the world!
There was a couple of minor breakages on the corner of a couple of the smaller roof sections, but I think we can rectify them. Other than that, I think the rest is ok, though we haven't managed to check everything yet.
We'll let you know if there are any serious problems.
Diana, Winscombe, Somerset, BS25, 8x8 Corner Log Cabin 200, 6th June 2015

Dear Summer Garden Buildings
Thank you so much for the efficient and helpful service from you fir the ordering and delivering of my new greenhouse. Everything was very smoothly dealt with from my initial query, ordering and delivery.
The greenhouse is now erected in my garden and already full of seedlings and plug plants. I thought you might be interested to know that I made very good use of the sturdy wooden packaging which the glass arrived in. With the addition of a few nails , use of a saw and hammer it has been converted into three useful planting trays for my potted up plug plants. I am sure you could use that on your advertising website. "How to easily upcycle a pallet"
Photo of upcycling attached.

Many thanks for your help.
Dear Summer Garden Buildings
Thank you so much for the service and supply of our Greenhouse. A mad rush to get it set up before I had to fly out of the country on a business trip, but all works perfectly well and it is now full of produce that is rapidly growing. However, I do have one problem, I seem to have misplaced the two catches that hold the window opening arm. Please could you send me replacements and advise cost so I can make payment.
Once again, I cannot rate you highly enough on your overall service, from ease of order to deliivery and then to quality of final product.
Tony, Calne, Wiltshire, SN11, 6x8 Greenhouse 014, 24th April 2015
I took delivery of the potting shed last week, and I'm very pleased with it.
However, the following items haven't yet been delivered:
1 x Hasp and staple with iron padlock
1 x Heavy duty T&G 3 tier shelf unit, 5' wide, 18" deep
I understand they come from a different warehouse. I rang the factory yesterday and they said they'd get back to me, but they haven't. Could you chase it up for me please?

Brilliant service, so VERY pleased with the shed, looks amazing and so easy to put together.
From one very happy customer!
Inga, Swadlincote, Derby, DE11, 7x7 Corner Shed 087, 14th April 2015
I have meant to write a review for ages but couldn't find an easy place to do so. We had the gazebo last June which my husband constructed over several incredibly wet days. The instructions were very clear but a cordless drill made life much easier. It is perfect and we have been so pleased with it. I have sat in it loads, even in the pouring rain but it allows me to watch our busy chickens. We spent a long time choosing your wooden gazebo but I am so glad that we did.
Jill, Birmingham, B29, 8x7 Wooden Gazebo 230, 10th April 2015
To Summer Garden Buildings
You deserve a 5 star review. The log cabin you supplied not only looks fantastic, a beautiful structure that has become the envy of my neighbours, but it is is also a high quality product and tremendous value for money. Good delivery service also included. Needless to say I am very pleased with the result. The fitter you recommended and his crew, also deserve 5 stars, they made a wonderful job of assembling the log cabin and were efficient, helpful, and polite.
Anyone who is contemplating buying a log cabin or summerhouse should use this company and this fitter.
Naomi, London, N11, 8x8 Corner Cabin 200, 7th April 2015

Many thanks for the greenhouse it was easy to erect and very strong. Filled with tomatoes and show leeks /onions keeping the heat very well and looking forward to seeing the end results
Anthony, Hexham, NE47, 6x8 Greenhouse 014, 5th April 2015
My husband has asked me to contact you and to offer his sincere apologies. It now appears that he misunderstood the advice that Paul was offering him.
He awoke early today and tried once again to erect the Gazebo by dismantling and reassembling the parts. This time he was successful.
I too, cannot say how sorry I am that you were put to such inconvenience and thank you very much for the professional way in which you dealt with the complaint.
p.s.Believe me, you would not want to be in his shoes now!
Mary, Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire, EN11, 10x10 Metal Gazebo 115, 28th March 2015
I hope you are well.
I have recommended you Gazebo to another school and they would like a quote for the same unit but 4m x 8m. Do you do one this size?
Can you please provide a cost for one closest to this size and include for factory preservative & installation.
The project is in Tottenham, N17.
I enclose a photo of the one installed at (SCHOOL).
