Pod installation An area of 310cm diameter is required to locate the summer house, along with a hard-standing base no less than 190cm2 to ensure the sphere remains firmly located in position. The pod can be installed on to a level paved area. If you are preparing a new concrete or paving area for your summerhouse, an overall depth of 30cm is recommended, allowing 7 days for the ground to settle prior to the installation team’s arrival. Summerhouse care The wooden structure of your sphere is made from pressure-treated wood laminates. As the seasons come and go, you may see some cracks opening and closing in the timber, which is a natural and normal occurrence. To change the exterior colour or protect the wood, you may wish to apply a wood stain or wood preserver. To extend the lifespan of your sphere, aim to apply a wood preserver at least once a year.
