This traditional-looking Summerhouse is one of our classically-shaped Holkham Summerhouses
that has been delivered and assembled in Plumpton, East Sussex by our expert installations team. Measuring 2.4 x 3.6m, it was designed by our in-house CAD engineers before being hand-made to order by the skilled craftsmen and women inside our factory at our HQ in Narford, Norfolk.
Our Holkham Summerhouse comes with windows in three out of the four sides, as well as in the double doors, to offer a light and airy feel inside. The windows are all made using 4mm toughened safety glass, with our customer opting for single opening windows either side of the door, a double opening window set in one end and a non-opening double set in the other. It also has a pitched roof covered in heavy duty roof felt, which is applied with a propane torch to increase its longevity.
The Holkham comes unlined as standard for purely summer use, but as our customer wanted to be able to comfortably use their building all year round, they have opted to add full internal lining and insulation on the walls, floor and ceiling as extra. They have chosen our highest-grade tongue and groove natural matchboarding on the walls and ceiling and our heavy-duty floorboards (ex 38mm thick) to cover the floor.
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.

The building has been clad with our rustic-cut weatherboard cladding and finished with a Light Oak Preservative, which will give the timber a nice sheen while also protecting it from fungi and woodworm.
