Quality Bespoke Garden Sheds

A quality garden shed is widely considered an essential for homeowners across the world, and has been an emblem of the back garden for hundreds of years. Read More

Benefits of a quality bespoke garden shed

Customisation

The primary advantage of a bespoke garden shed is that you’ll be able to call the shots on all aspects of the design, ranging from the size of the shed to what roof covering you prefer. This will enable you to select the shape, style and materials that are best suited to your garden, lifestyle and even your geographical location. 

Premium Materials

Bespoke garden sheds are typically handcrafted by skilled artisans or experienced carpenters who pay close attention to detail and take pride in their workmanship. Each component is carefully constructed and assembled to ensure structural integrity, stability, and longevity. Quality craftsmanship not only enhances the appearance of the shed but also contributes to its overall performance, durability and longevity. Our bespoke garden sheds are made from sustainably sourced FSC© certified Scandinavian Redwood timber which is known for its natural beauty and resilience to decay and insect damage.

Long-Term Value

While high-quality bespoke garden sheds may require a higher upfront investment compared to standard prefabricated models, they offer excellent long-term value in terms of durability, performance, and aesthetic appeal. A well-built bespoke shed can last for many years with proper maintenance, providing a valuable and versatile outdoor space for storage, work, relaxation, and leisure activities.

Our shed features & considerations

Additional Features

At Crane, we are proud to offer an entirely bespoke and carefully-considered service that walks you through each different design option to ensure that the shed is going to be perfect for you. Once you’ve selected the ideal size, you can then explore the different design and placement options of windows, cladding, interior features such as partitions, workbenches and flooring, and roofing types. There’s also a variety of paint systems to choose between, including a selection of Farrow & Ball shades and Sikkens preservative stains

Enhanced Security 

During the design process of your bespoke garden shed, there are a range of additional extras that you can opt to include which we have explored above. For customers where security is a particular concern, we have developed our own three-step security pack for complete peace of mind. Consisting of integrated window bars, anti-theft bolts and a seven-lever mortice lock, the Crane security pack can easily be added to your garden shed, ensuring that everything inside is kept safe and secure. 

Professional Installation

Each quality garden shed that we craft is made entirely by hand, before being carefully prepared and loaded for delivery. Every single delivery is carried out by our friendly and professional fitting team who also erect the shed on your property and ensure everything is as it should be. This includes pouring a level concrete base should you need one and the complete installation process. Professional installation to our exact specifications ensures that the shed is safe, secure, and built to last.

An insulated garden shed is a popular choice with anyone who will also be using their shed as a workshop or to store valuables that could be damaged by damp and mould.

The size of your garden shed will be based on your individual needs, and thus there isn’t a ‘minimum’ size of a garden shed. Our models, however, start as small as 1.2 x 1.8m. 

In most cases, planning permission is not required for garden sheds, as they fall under ‘permitted development’. However, there may be certain size and location conditions to meet. If you would like to speak to one of our knowledgeable team about planning permission, please get in touch. In the meantime, take a look at our guide to planning permission.

Bespoke garden sheds can certainly be used all year-round for storage. If you’re planning to use your garden shed as a workshop or hobby room, we advise you opt for an insulated model to ensure you will be able to comfortably spend time inside throughout the year.

We offer double-glazing options for our sheds, providing additional insulation and noise reduction.

Please note, we are unable to connect your shed to your mains supply, this will need to be carried out by a qualified electrician.
