  • Designs tailored to your needs 
    At Crane, we champion the idea that crafting your ideal garden building should be a collaborative process. To facilitate this, we offer a multitude of customisable features for you to choose from to create a finish that is designed by you and crafted by us. Discover the myriad options available for customisation as you navigate through our unique online building configurator tailored to each building style.

  • High quality sustainable timber
    All of our garden buildings are made from certified Scandinavian Redwood sourced from our timber mill partner in Northern Sweden. The Redwood has slowly grown for more than 130 years at latitude a above 65 degrees north. These conditions encourage slow growth to form a close grain with fewer knots signifying the strength and superior quality of the wood.

  • Handmade to order 
    Every structure we offer is meticulously crafted through a personalised process. Designed by our in-house CAD engineers, our buildings are manufactured to order, allowing us to leverage our extensive expertise to tailor standard designs according to your specific requirements. Within our Norfolk workshop, skilled craftsmen bring these designs to life, hand-crafting each element from the framing and cladding to the doors and windows. This ensures that every aspect adheres to the elevated standards that define our brand. By marrying modern design with traditional craftsmanship, we not only meet but exceed the expectations that we proudly set for ourselves.
