Size Guide and DIY

Size Guide

Choosing the right size Wendy House is crucial to ensure that it meets your needs and fits seamlessly into your available space. Here is a list of things to consider when making this decision.

1. What Is The Purpose Of The Wendy House?
Are you going to be using your wendy House for storage, as a playhouse, a guard house, a home office, a classroom, a workshop, or an additional living space? The intended use will significantly impact the required size. If you are unsure about what size would suit your use best, please contact us and we will be happy to advise you.
2. Measure Available Space

Measure the area where you plan to install the Wendy House. Consider factors such as width, length, and height restrictions. We require a minimum of 400mm clearance on the width and length of the Wendy House to allow us to install the unit. The minimum installation area based on nominal roof dimensions are in the sizing guide table below.

Wendy House Size (Front x Side) Minimum Install Area(Front x Side)
1.2m x 1.2m 2.0m x 2.0m
1.8m x 0.9m 2.6m x 1.7m
1.8m x 1.8m 2.6m x 2.6m
1.8m x 2.4m 2.6m x 3.2m
1.8m x 3.0m 2.6m x 3.8m
2.4m x 2.4m 3.2m x 3.2m
2.4m x 3.0m 3.2m x 3.8m
2.4m x 3.6m 3.2m x 4.4m
3.0m x 3.0m 3.8m x 3.8m
3.0m x 4.2m 3.8m x 5.0m
3.0m x 6.0m 3.8m x 6.8m
3.6m x 4.8m 4.4m x 5.6m
3.6m x 7.0m 4.4m x 7.8m

3. Foundation Requirements
We install our Wendy Houses into bricks, which is included in our delivery and installation price. However, if the gradient of your ground exceeds 300mm from corner to corner where the Wendy House is going to be installed, a brick install is not suitable. In this case, you can either level the ground before installation, pour a level concrete slab, or opt for a stilted base as an optional extra.
4. Future Growth
Anticipate future needs. If your family or business is likely to grow, consider choosing a size that accommodates potential expansion or increased usage.
