Where to buy a revolving summerhouse or garden office

 I am writing a column for a future issue of The Idler magazine about rotating/revolving sheds and summerhouses. For those interested in these marvellous builds, here are a few currently on the market. Above is a 1930s revolving summerhouse in good condition from Symond's Salvage (£8,500 plus VAT) which also has a lovely floor. Below is a classic revolving Boulton & Paul Summer House from UKAA at £8,750. It has a new roof and is currently painted in French Grey although they'll repaint it any colour you like as part of the price.

This charming Edwardian revolving summerhouse (£16,500 from LASSCO) is octagonal with rusticated cladding on a refurbished cast iron turntable. The leaded and coloured glass windows and door are original as too are the floor and roof timbers. It's nearly 3m high and just over 2m wide.

And finally, this from Chris Holmes Antiques another lovely Boulton and Paul revolving summerhouse from the 1930s and in excellent original condition. POA.
