Luxury in every detail
Lugarde offers high quality for a fair price. We have our own manufacturing and in-house design & drawing department, making us completely flexible and able to offer outstanding quality even for bespoke designs. Did you know several famous Dutchmen already own a summerhouse or log cabin made by Lugarde? Our Dutch royal family and other European royal families trust our products and have Lugarde products in their gardens. This is an acknowledgement of our outstanding quality that we are rightfully proud of.
At Lugarde we offer both standard and bespoke products. Our bespoke design service is also fairly priced. Our price-performance-ratio can be described as outstanding. Furthermore, Lugarde offers various key features free of charge, such as double glazing fitted as standard, roof shingles included, free delivery (to the mainland), easy assembly and several other options. Providing a quality service is top priority for us at Lugarde. Additionally, we offer a 5 year guarantee on Lugarde products for manufacturing or construction faults.
Lugarde uses first class pine from the northern countries where the climate is cold and thus the trees grow slowly. The growth rings are closer together which makes the wood more stable and significantly denser. All our wood is kiln dried in special drying rooms to approx 14-16% moisture content to reduce wood shrinkage.
Bertus Wuestman, the founder of Lugarde worked in his early years as a thatcher for his father. Soon his customers wanted not only a thatched roof but were also interested in buying summerhouses. In 1978 Bertus developed a booth with a thatched roof. That was not the end of the story but the beginning. Many other summerhouses were to follow – with other types of roofing materials. In the meantime, Lugarde expanded to a business offering dozens of summerhouses along with other products.
Bertus is still working within the family business. His daughter Andrea and his son Thomas now work for Lugarde. Since 2016 Andrea Wuestman is the director-owner. The summerhouses Prima Andrea and Prima Thomas are named after them. Today around 65 people work for Lugarde in administration and production, whose primary objective is to make every single customer completely satisfied.

In 2001 Lugarde invented the 'Prima 3=1 system'. This system’s side walls consist of milled wall sections which fit precisely into the corresponding corner uprights. This is made possible with aluminium strips. These are fitted on the inside of the corner uprights. This system enhances the strength and durability of our summerhouses whilst still allowing movement. The walls are put together without any nails or screws. Due to the 'Prima 3=1 system' our summerhouses can be simply assembled.
The new Pro-system designed and manufactured by Lugarde has robust laminated posts of 14 cm x 14 cm in which the wall elements easily slide into. Our Pro-system products provide a very robust and modern look. Lugarde currently is working on a 3D-Configurator design system. From April 2016 you do not have to imagine how your future bespoke summerhouse or log cabin will look – you can view it from any desired angle with a 360° viewing option.
