We have a summer house in our back garden (just bought house). We have replaced the felt root and sanded and treated all wood; inside and out, the summerhouse.For aesthetics I'd like the roof to be wooden likt this. But having gone to B&Q and Wickes people (ie. spotty teenagers) keep telling me no such wood exists and that I'll have to use a sheet of ply.So, does anyone know what wood I need to do this? Thanks!
cladding?shiplap cladding?Nail some batons onto the roof, and tap the wood slats to the batonsIf you're just using plain planks of wood - start at bottom - overlapping as you work up.
I don't know now....have a look around this
Paisleyleaf thanks for that. I was hoping the end of the wood would be curved (like a lolly pop stick) and I could buy it ready curved but am confused now
Oh, do you mean the wavey shaped bits of wood at the front of the roof?I think it does only come already cut like that when you buy the whole kit to build a play/summer house
