Crane Garden Buildings
Crane Garden Buildings is a family run business and we have been making timber buildings in Norfolk for over 40 years. We are a market leader in producing high quality timber buildings of all types.
We are proud to acknowledge that much of our trade is built around our reputation. We firmly believe that this is because we provide a personal service from design stage to installation, where the customer always comes first and is delighted with their building.
Our buildings are exceptional and unrivalled. We are always in the market place ensuring that any improvements in products, techniques and components are implemented by us straight away. We employ skilled craftsmen and a well regarded installation team to finish your building to the very highest of our expected standards.
We manufacture all our buildings to order so if our standard buildings are not quite what you have in mind then we are very happy to discuss your requirements. These are just some of the reasons why we are better:
Timber - We are an FSC® certified company and we partner a timber mill in North Sweden who are also FSC certified thus ensuring a constant supply of high quality certified timber managed in a sustainable way. Read more about how and where we source our timber.
We use Scots Pine that is sourced from an area of forest that has often been growing for more than 130 years at latitudes above 65° North. In these conditions the trees are slowly grown making the timber more dense which ensures a high quality, close grain less susceptible to dead knots.
The thickness of our timber in terms of the walls, floor, roof, framework and the general quality of our construction means that our buildings are exceptionally strong and robust and we strongly recommend viewing them.
Joinery- We hand make our buildings in our workshops. Skilled carpenters make the doors and windows for all the buildings that we produce. This ensures that the high quality we demand is met and that we can make bespoke doors and windows to our customers requirements. Watch this short video to see how we make our garden buildings:
Roof Coverings- We offer a variety of roof coverings from extreme wear, heavy duty felt to Cedar Shingles, Slate Effect tiles and Green Living roofs.
Lining and Insulation – We offer and some buildings have as standard, a 3 stage lining and insulation process which means that you can use your building year round and it looks beautiful too. The finish can be painted for a light and airy look or left natural for a warm feel. View our video to see the differences between lining options:
Paint Systems – We offer our unique Valtti paint system which has an unrivalled longevity and protection and is available in many beautiful colours to compliment your surroundings. Read more about our opaque Valtti Paint System, or our transluscent Sikkens Paint System.
Security Pack-For our exceptionally strong and robust Sheds and Workshops we offer a 3 step Security Pack consisting of window bars mortised into the window frames, non-returnable screws used on the hinges and a heavy duty, 7 lever sliding bolt (anti-sawing, anti-picking, anti-cropping and anti-prising).
Bespoke-We offer a comprehensive range of buildings as standard but as we build each building as it is ordered you can have yours exactly as you would like it. Use our online Building Planner Tool to design your own garden building and tailor the door, window, roof, interior and exterior to your exact requirements.
Delivery and Installation -Our experienced and professional fitters deliver and install all our buildings free of charge.
I had to put pen to paper or rather finger to keyboard and email you. After 12 weeks wait and a big bill, My shed arrived Tuesday 10th September. What can I say, this is not a shed it is a vastly superior model railway building. Well worth the expense and wait. Roger and Steve arrived on time and although having to navigate down the overcrowded cul-d-sac to My house, were both cheerful and efficient. The shed is more than expected even after visiting Narford to view the sheds. From the first phone call, through dealing and ordering with James to the final payment over the phone everyone at Cranes has been both friendly and professional. Although there was a small problem it has now been sorted in your usual friendly manner. Once again thank you all for your wonderful service and a shed to make the neighbours jealous and modelling an even bigger pleasure.

I should also like to thank the two fitters for their excellent work. I am looking forward to installing my model trains.
Mr W - Lowestoft
I just had to write to you to say how happy we are with our beautiful new Wiveton Summerhouse. I also wanted to let you know how courteous, polite and efficient your construction team were. Nothing was too much trouble, they wanted to be sure that I was happy in every way with the summerhouse. I believe their names were Scott and Lee and I would be most grateful if you could pass on my thanks and congratulations to them for how they dealt with the construction work, how tidily they worked and how they even explained about the windows, door locks etc. I also want you to know what fantastic ambassadors they are for your company.

I am writing to congratulate you in having such a wonderful team of employees. I am now a proud owner of a Crane Shed and from beginning to end, experienced fantastic service. I have been in contact with Peter who has been excellent, Tom and your Burford team also. And all of them have been attentive, even when i have bombarded them with 101 questions.
I have never written such a letter as this before but i have been so impressed. So, well done...and you have one happy customer who is recommending you.
Mrs K - Oxfordshire
Just a short note to say how pleased we are with the Garden Room, and how impressed we were with the team that laid the concrete foundation and the second team that erected the building. Both were led by Cliff who was hardworking, effective, efficient and, above all, competent. I had every confidence in the on-site workmanship. Thank you.
