Designed and made to order at the Crane Garden Buildings Norfolk HQ, this 8 x 16ft Superior Shed was recently installed for a customer needing a practical and attractive workshop space. As with all of our luxury garden buildings, the shed was handcrafted using FSC© Certified Scandinavian Redwood Timber sourced from our partnering timber mill in Sweden. A versatile addition to our customer’s lovely garden, the shed also serves as a safe storage space for gardening equipment and tools.
Selected by our customer from our range of Superior Sheds, (selected styles of which can be seen at our various show centres around the UK) the building has a pent roof design with a small overhang. This gives the windows and single-access door some protection from the elements while the torched-on, heavy-duty roofing felt ensures optimum longevity. There are five opening, double-glazed windows with an attractive Georgian bar design, and the door is equipped with durable galvanised hardware. The exterior design of the shed is finished in traditional weatherboard cladding in a subtle Light Oak natural stain.
Peter was extremely helpful and a pleasure to deal with. He is the sort of person who makes buying something that's a big-ticket item (and a Superior Shed was a big-ticket item for me) enjoyable and worry-free. His knowledge of the product and helpfulness in unhurriedly guiding the choice of specification was most impressive. The two fitters were both extremely polite, accommodating and very efficient.

Internally, despite its pent roof design, the shed has an interior height of 2.0m and has an insulated floor, which is pivotal for retaining and expelling heat during the appropriate seasons. In this case, our customer worked with the design team to add breathable paper lining to allow them to finish off the interior themselves, adding things like electrics, custom lining and other interior features. They could also have opted to add our electrical pack, which consists of four double sockets, an eight-way consumer unit, indoor lighting, an externally mounted socket and an optional heater.
