Garden sheds and Summer Houses have a range of windows. You will find that on garden sheds they are normally functional where as on summer houses the windows are a little more fancy. The type of material used in these windows varies from the decent and top end garden buildings down to the cheap mass produced sheds and summerhouses. On the better buildings you will find that proper glass has been used and the reason for this is that it is very stable. This means that it does not discolour, so you can see clearly through it all the time, nor does it move, meaning that you won't hear it moving in the wind.
On the cheap garden sheds and summerhouses you will find quite often that they will use plastic, perspex or acrylic.

As soon as water gets into the shed floor it will be absorbed into the chips making the board swell and then disintegrate.

Sophie and her wealthy husband, Jamie Cullum, a jazz star, are aiming to raise this enormous sum so the 1950's built garden shed contents can be moved to the nearby Roald Dahl museum.
However actor and writer, Nicholas Pegg, wrote on Twitter 'Top model (& Jamie Cullum's wife) Sophie Dahl wants us to raise £0.5 million to save her best selling grandpas shed. Am I'm missing something?' I tend to agree with him. He later went on to post 'A preposterously wealthy family pleading for cash for its legacy? It sounds like a lost Dahl story'. Another Twitter user also angry tweeted 'Roald Dahl's shed needs to be renovated - Sophie could earn that on one modelling job. The Big Stingy Giant'.
