We recommend that you review these Terms before every purchase that you make.

2.3 Once we receive your order, will send you an initial acknowledgement; and once we have checked whether we are able to meet your order, we will either send you an order confirmation (at which point your order will become a binding contract) or we will confirm by email that we are unable to meet your order.
3.1 We may periodically change the products available on our website, and we do not undertake to continue to supply any particular product or type of product.
3.2 All our products are made to order and most products are sent out for self assembly.
3.3 As products are manufactured from natural materials they may contain natural defects for example, knots in wood. Any cracking, swelling, wrapping and splitting in wood due to adverse weather conditions will not construed as a defect from poor design, workmanship or manufacturing faults.
3.4 A suitable pet safe timber treatment should be applied at the time of first build and then applied every 12 months to maintain the appearance of the timber. The application and/or mixing guidelines provided by the manufacturer of the timber treatment should be followed.
4.1 Our prices are quoted on our website for standard products, but we will notify you of the price for any customized or product made to your specification.
4.2 We will from time to time change the prices quoted on our website, but this will not affect contracts that have already come into force.

4.4 In addition to the price of the products, you will have to pay a delivery charge and you may choose to pay an installation charge. Prices for installation are subject to change if we are unable to install the product because of a lack of access, area and/or the ground is not level; see Section 5.7 for further information.
4.5 You may pay for your order in full or by a payment option which lets you pay a deposit and the rest in installments. If you are a business, (a) we may accept a smaller initial deposit; and (b) you agree that the initial deposit is not refundable. We will not deliver any products until payment has been made in full. Whether you are a consumer or a business, if you order customized products or products made to your specification you agree that the initial deposit is not refundable.

For the avoidance of doubt, if you fail to recognise or fail to remember the source of an entry on your card statement or other financial statement, and make a charge-back as a result, this will constitute an unjustified charge-back for the purposes of this Section 4.6.
