Product Code: OPASUM86MHD

(4.7) Based on 14 Reviews


The largest version of the Oakley 8 x 6ft summerhouse enjoys the same features of other sizes in this style and is a remarkably charming structure that will be a welcome addition to your summer garden. 

Whether it's for relaxation or the opportunity to engage in a choice of leisure activities, the Oakley will not disappoint. With three-quarter windows and impressive headroom, there's plenty of well lit comfortable space inside.

Double doors with shatter-proof glazing open to take advantage of warm sunshine, as well as the large windows on either side. Inside under the high apex roof which is covered in mineral felt, there's a heavy-duty solid floor made from timber that, like all the wood, is FSC sourced and pressure treated to guarantee a long and useful life.

This is a perfect Summer House. The quality is absolutely fine, it is exactly as expected. Delivery was quick and friendly. Assembly was quite straightforward once we had checked it all over and knew what was what. Has stood up to a storm or two since we built it. Overall yes can recommend. Thank you.

Julie Walsh Asked:

Are the window frames strong enough to replace the acrylic with toughened glass?

We Replied:

Dear Julie Thank you for your question. The manufacturer can't recommend this as it would be a change that they haven’t tested and the frames are designed only to incorporate lightweight acrylic panels. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Andy

Karen Anderson Asked:

What size are the floor bearers?

We Replied:

Dear Karen Thank you for your question. The bearers on the pre-assembled floor sections of this Summerhouse are 58mm deep, so 58mm off the ground, 28mm thick and 2400mm long. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Lauren

Stuart Clacher Asked:

If the roof section comes in two halves, how is the joint sealed?

We Replied:

Dear Stuart Thank you for your question. Roof felt is included and this is used to overlap the joints on the roof in order to weatherproof it. You can preview the installation of the roof via the instruction manual here: As a personal preference and optional extra, you may also wish to use a sealant along joints throughout the summerhouse. The sealant can be purchased from general hardware stores and is similar to what's used around baths and sinks, although there are various outdoor variants available. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards, Gaby

Andrew McGurry Asked:

Does this come with a base or do I need to order one?

We Replied:

Dear Andrew Thank you for your question. The summerhouse comes as standard with a 16mm thick boarded floor along with bearers underneath. However, you will need a flat, hardstanding surface to install the greenhouse onto such as a concreted, slabbed, patio or decking floor, or alternatively a wooden or plastic base area. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Gaby
