This traditionally attractive garden building is a Holkham Summerhouse, and it has been installed in our customer’s garden in Lostwithiel, Cornwall, positioned to get a good view of the river that flows past their garden.
The customer chose a neutral colour scheme for their summerhouse, which allows it to blend in nicely with their garden. Grey slate effect tiles have been used on the roof, and the paint colour they chose is Ash, which is a neutral, grey colour from our exterior paint range.
At 2.4 x 3.0m in size, this is quite a small summerhouse, but the customer will be able to make it very comfortable inside, and they will be able to use it throughout the year, as they chose to have double glazing, full insulation, painted matchboard lining in Ivory, and an electric pack with a heater.
When I first wanted to look at the Crane display at Burford, Andrew was wonderfully helpful. He instantly understood what I was looking for, although I was not sure myself, and persuaded me to look at sheds which were cheaper than I originally thought I wanted. As a direct result of this, I decided to order a Holkham Summerhouse as well as a couple of sheds! When Andrew came to my house to advise on where the sheds should be sited, he again suggested solutions I had not thought of; he pointed out that my original idea involved unacceptably pruning a tree. By the end of it, I felt that Andrew was a personal friend, and later when I spoke to Robert on the phone, it was clear that everything I had discussed with Andrew had been passed on so I did not have to explain anything and felt that he too was a friend. It was a very professional operation.

To give an extra bit of style, the finishing touches to this garden retreat are the Georgian windows, and polished brass door and window furniture.
