The Flat Top


Our handyman Nic kept the Flat Top  as a simple design to keep the costs down and give you the ultimate creative freedom to dress it up in a style that suits your street.  This build is ready to paint and mount (at such stage some basic carpentry skills may be required). Painted copy shown on front page…The item you purchase is not painted…(hint: that’s the fun part!!)

Finishing your library.

The library is not yet weatherproof and must be protected with at least two coats of paint or varnish to ensure it lives a long and generous life.
(Models shown may be painted - your library is NOT painted!)

We recommend securely fixing your library to your property ensure it does not topple and to hinder would be thieves and advantageous mischiefs.
