Octagonal wedding ceremonial summerhouse

Some four years ago we were commissioned to design a summer house for a client who had just installed a new lake to the rear of their property. The design we came up with was the octagonal summer house now sited at Polhawn Fort. The commission did not go ahead due to a planning stipulation so we kept the design for future use. We then built the summer house to exibit at our local country shows. We ventured to many shows in Dorset installing it at The New Forest Show and the Dorset County show to name but a few. After the show season was over we decided the building needed a forever home and that is when Polhawn Fort came forward to purchase it.
It now sits in a wonderful spot and will be enjoyed by many on their special wedding day and other events.

This section of the website displays more unique buildings we have created for our clients over the years. If you have something different in mind and would like our help please get in touch. Anything is possible and we love a challenge!
