This 6 x 10ft pent roof shed is from our range of FSC® certified timber Superior Sheds. Our customer selected our Superior Shed as they wanted a shed that was built entirely to their specification to home their model railway layout. It was designed to meet our customer’s requirements by our CAD engineers before being hand-built to order by skilled craftsmen inside our factory at our HQ in Narford, Norfolk.
Our Superior Shed range is available in a wide variety of sizes, meaning we are able to tailor your shed to be however big or small you require. Our customer opted for a 6 x 10ft shed with a single door in the gable and a double-glazed triple window set in the side. This Superior Shed has been designed with a pent roof that features a charming overhang to the side, covered in torched-on heavy duty roofing felt and lined by guttering. To give the exterior a smooth finish, our customer has chosen to have the outside of the building clad with shiplap style cladding, which has been treated with a Sikkens wood stain in the colour Mahogany. The Sikkens stain gives a high-quality colour while also allowing the grain to be seen through.
The inside of the building has been fully lined and insulated to ensure that it remains comfortable inside while our customer works on creating his railway layout. They have opted for an electric pack with heater to be installed to supply the building with power, lighting and heating, and they’ve also chosen to have heavy duty flooring added so that the weight of the layout is properly supported.
I’ve been meaning for the last week to write praising Cranes to the skies and telling you just how thrilled we are with our beautiful new building... ...We are SO impressed with all the members of staff we've had the pleasure of meeting over the period we've been planning this - without exception everyone in Cranes has been helpful, considerate and cheery and nobody told us that to try and get a top of the range biuilding into a space without proper access was foolhardy - they just made sure it happened. It's truly wonderful in this day and age to encounter such superior, faultless and courteous organisation and implementation. Many congratulations and thanks to you all.

To give the trains inside added protection, our customer has opted to have our security pack installed as extra. Our security pack consists of stainless-steel bars mortised into the window frame, non-returnable security screws on the door hinges that are impossible to unscrew, and a fully steel encased seven level lock that is anti-sawing, anti-picking, anti-cropping and anti-prising.
