Brighton Flat



The Brighton is one of our original Summerhouses and it still remains just as popular today. To accommodate the doors & windows the front has to be a minimum of 12’ wide.


Most buildings will come with (Ex15mm) 12mm finished tongue & groove matching on 47mm x 47mm pressure treated floor joists with an option to upgrade to a Heavy-duty moisture resistant 18mm V313 Caberboard flooring. All buildings over 8’ in each direction e.g., 8’ x 8’ but not 9’ x 7’ are upgraded as standard.


All buildings come with (Ex 19mm) 15mm finished tongue & groove matching on 47mm x 47mm & 47mm x 22mm roof bearers, although some larger buildings will have these bearers upgraded where necessary. There is a 0.38m (15”) roof canopy over the front of the building as standard on the Brighton. A Heavy-Duty Polyester based roofing felt is used as standard on all buildings. On all of our buildings, there is a ventilation gap along the back of the roof, there is the option to upgrade the felt-to-felt tiles or Cedar Shingles.


All buildings have (Ex15mm) 12mm finished tongue & groove shiplap fixed to 47mm x 47mm & 47mm x 22mm finished framework. We also offer an (Ex19mm) 15mm finished Tongue & groove loglap upgrade on these buildings.


The Brighton has a pair of doors 0.6m (24”) wide by 1.76m (70”) tall that have 3 panes of toughened glass in each door. The doors open to give a 1.2m (4’) opening. They are hung on black antique style hinges and come with a 5-lever lock & black antique style handle.


The Brighton Flat has a 12-pane window with the top two central panes opening in the front, whilst the Brighton Bow has a 12-pane fixed bay window in the front of the building instead of the flat window. Both the Brighton Flat & the Brighton Bow have a 6 pane fully opening sash in each side panel as standard.


A 2’, 3’ or 4’ Veranda can be added to the Brighton as an optional extra. The 2’ Veranda has an open front whilst the 3’ & 4’ Verandas have spindles across to the doors on the front.


The Brighton also has an internal eaves height of 1.82m (6’) rising to an internal ridge height of 2.31m (91”) on all fronts.

Extra height can be added to the building as an upgrade.

The buildings complies with the 2.5m maximum height restriction imposed when erecting a building under Permitted Development.


 Our buildings are treated both internally & externally with a spirit-based preservative that helps to protect the timber from fungi, woodworm & blue stain. We do recommend that buildings are retreated within 3 months unless painted and then every year for continuous protection. All of our buildings can be upgraded to a painted finish.
