This 7 x 6ft (2.1 x 1.8m) Blakeney Summerhouse has been installed at our customer’s property to be used as a craft room for use throughout the year.
This Blakeney is a bespoke size at 2.1 x 1.8m. As standard the smallest size we make is 2.4 x 1.8; however, this was too big to fit in the available space in our customer’s garden, so we found out the size that would fit, and our in-house team redesigned the building to make it the correct size for our customer.
The Blakeney is a chalet-style summerhouse, and it has a roof overhang to give it its beach hut feel. A single door, and three sets of windows have also been included in the design. The window in the left side can be opened, which is also positioned where the customer’s crafting desk will be set up to allow easy access to fresh air on warmer days.
The roof of this summerhouse has been covered in our heavy duty felt, which is heat-bonded onto the roof to increase longevity. Externally, the customer chose shiplap cladding for a smooth finish, and the building is painted in our Exterior paint range in the opaque colour, Sandstone.
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.

The customer wants to be able to use their building in comfort throughout the year, so they chose to have double glazed windows, floor insulation, and the breathable paper lining in the walls and ceiling to allow the customer to line and insulate the building themselves.
The final touch to this lovely craft studio is the polished brass door and window furniture to enhance the traditional charm of the building.
