Holkham Summerhouse with Grey Slate Roof
This unique building was recently designed and hand-built in Norfolk for a customer based in March, Cambridgeshire who wanted an outdoor retreat that would double up as a work-from-home office. The timber garden building was delivered and installed as part of our exceptional service by the in-house installations team.
Measuring 1.8 x 2.4m, the building has an apex roof covered in grey slate composite tiles and was originally modelled from our Holkham Summerhouse but slightly changed to suit the needs and desires of our customer. The exterior is clad with smooth shiplap and painted in the opaque paint shade of Sage, which was selected by the customer from our range of external paint shades, including a Farrow & Ball palette and colour-matching service. There are four opening windows that all feature double glazing and supply a desirable amount of both ventilation and natural light.
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.

Internally, the building is fully insulated to allow year-round use and benefits from painted pine lining in the shade of Ivory for a contemporary feel. The floor has a natural lacquer applied for some protection and ease of cleaning, and an electrical pack has been installed so that appliances and lighting can be used, an essential factor when building a garden office.
