We installed this Blakeney Summerhouse in Nottingham for a customer who is a keen crafter. Our customer makes lots of bags, aprons, and cushions, but her biggest passion is hand-crafting teddy bears. She started making the bears after losing her husband to Alzheimer and decided to start selling them to raise money for Alzheimer’s Research UK. Her passion project “Together We Can for Dementia” has raised over £10,000 since it started.
Our customer’s Blakeney Summerhouse turned craft room is 2.4 x 1.8m in size. The Blakeney has an apex roof design with an attractive overhang. Our customer has painted her building herself after installation in lilac, but it came treated with our light oak preservative as standard. If you would prefer to have your garden building delivered and installed already painted, we offer a choice of colours from our Exterior Paint System as well as a range of specially selected Farrow & Ball shades that are professionally sprayed on and have a long redecoration cycle.
Our Blakeney Summerhouse is unlined as standard, so our customer can enjoy working on her crafts comfortably during the summer months of the year. While our customer has not opted to have her building turned into a year-round use summerhouse, we can add full internal lining, insulation, and double glazing to make it suitable for use in every season. Electrics and a heater can also be installed if you wish to have a building supplied with lighting and power.
During our 40+ years of making garden buildings, we have seen many customers looking for a garden building to use for crafting. Whether you are looking for something traditional, like our Blakeney Summerhouse, or something modern, like one of our studios, we have many garden buildings that would be suitable as a craft room.
