PUBLISHED: 10:21 18 July 2013 | UPDATED: 10:21 18 July 2013

Harveys, located at the Woodside Garden Centre in Rayleigh, is an established family-run business that has been supplying quality garden buildings to Essex and beyond for many years. Its show site has more than 40 buildings on display where the customer can actually see and feel the quality of the building they are buying. There are sheds, summerhouses, barbecue cabins from Finland, gazebo’s (thatched and tiled), cabins, workshops and much more, including a range of Home Office buildings as technology allows remote access to important office-based information. As the cost of travel becomes more expensive, the trend for the Home Office gathers pace and you can buy a bespoke Home Office fully lined and double glazed, saving you the cost of your rail season ticket. And with the expense of moving still very high, many families have decided to increase space and the value of their existing home by adding an additional room in the pleasant surroundings of their garden.

Another popular design is the sloping wall barbecue cabin for entertaining your family and friends. We have all invited people around for a barbecue and had it rained off! Well, not anymore! The Harveys Barbecue Cabin – with its central barbecue and seating for 12-15 people – assures you a good time whatever the weather. The very attractive design with unique sloping walls makes the Barbecue Cabin a ‘Tardis’ inside, with even the facility of three beds – for those guests who will not leave! The barbecue can double as a heater during colder months, which when combined with the double glazed windows becomes truly an all year round building. To add a Scandinavian feel, all BBQ cabins come with reindeer skins for the seats and are fully equipped with utensils and cups etc, so you can start enjoying the building from the moment it arrives.

Harveys’ buildings are treated, delivered and assembled on your prepared base, or a base can be installed if required, providing a hassle-free service for customers.
