This 2.4 x 3.0m Holkham Summerhouse
is a bespoke design to best fit the customer’s narrow garden, and it has been installed here in Arbrury, Cambridgeshire to be used as a year-round craft room, giving the customer a dedicated space to work on her hobby in.
The standard design for our Holkham Summerhouse is to have double doors and two windows sets in the front side, and to have double windows in the gables, but due to the shape of her garden, they asked if we could put the double doors in the gable to allow for easier access, which we happily agreed to.
Cedar shingle tiles have been used to give a natural look to the roof, and there is white guttering with a downspout on the front side to protect the windows underneath from excess rainfall. The paint colour chosen by the customer to finish off the outside appearance, is a green colour called Lichen from our Valtti paint range, which blends in very well with the greenery already existing in the customer’s garden.
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.

To make this a garden room suitable for year-round use, rather than just a summer house, the customer opted to have double glazed windows, full insulation, painted matchboard lining on the internal walls in Ivory (to give a light, bright feel), and she also chose our electrical pack with a heater, so they are sure to be very comfy inside, whatever time of year it is.
Other features also include a Natural lacquer on the floor to give it a nice sheen and a protective layer, as well Georgian style windows, and polished brass door and window furniture.
