This 8 x 12ft (2.4 x 3.6m) Holkham Summerhouse has been installed in our customer’s garden to be used as an attractive storage shed.
The Holkham is an apex roof summerhouse, with the design capabilities of being as basic or complex as you wish. As standard, it is an unlined, unpainted summerhouse with felt on the roof, but it can be made into a year-round usage building with lining and insulation, double glazed windows, a wide choice of paint colours, an electric pack and either cedar shingles or slate effect tiles on the roof.
This customer wanted a simple building that looked pretty in their garden to allow them to store their garden furniture inside, among other things. On the apex roof, they chose to have our heavy duty, torched on felt, which offers durable, weather-proof protection, shiplap exterior cladding for a smooth finish on the timber, and the building has been painted in our light oak stain to help protect the timber from woodworm and fungi.
One of the extra features the customer did opt for are our leaded windows to add a bit of traditional style to the building. The double doors with half-glazed windows, and windows in the rest of the building will allow plenty of natural inside, meaning that if they decided they wanted to use their building as an actual summerhouse, they very easily could.
My wife and I would like to thank you for the smooth and efficient "creation" of our summerhouse. From the initial valuable discussion with Alan McGregor at our home and the erection of our Holkham garden building, the whole process went precisely according to plan.
The base was laid on schedule and we were impressed with the smooth arrival of the building on the low loader. The construction was done precisely, calmly, efficiently and without any fuss by the three members of staff who were a credit to the company. On completion they kindly moved a heavy exercise bike from the house and put it in the building. It is a pleasure to sit in the space and it serves our purpose well.

The inside of the summerhouse is unlined, but the customer chose to also have two extra windows to help to add more light inside.
