This pretty garden building is our Blakeney Summerhouse
, and it has been installed in our customer’s courtyard garden in Gloucester, Gloucestershire to enjoy a bit of alfresco dining in style from.
The customer liked the chalet style of our Blakeney Summerhouse with its roof overhang, but they also liked the doors and windows of the Cley Summerhouse, so they asked if we could put the Cley doors and windows in their Blakeney, which we happily agreed to.
The windows are leaded in style for a traditional feel, and there are two double sets on each side, as well as a fanlight window in the back wall, to allow plenty of natural light inside. To help protect these opening windows, the customer also opted to have white guttering fitted along each side.
To finish off the outside, there is weatherboard cladding, which offers a more rustic look than the standard shiplap, there are terracotta slate effect tiles on the roof, and the summerhouse has been painted in two colours: the walls have been painted in Pebble, and the doors and windows in Ivory, both of which are in our exterior paint system.
I just wanted to let you know that we have been delighted with our Blakeney Summerhouse and it is getting a lot of use despite the appalling weather we have had since it went up on 13th June. The specification we eventually worked out with your help is exactly what we wanted and fits the site perfectly. Communication with the factory worked well and the team who came to install it did a very professional job. We will have no hesitation in recommending Crane to our friends.

Internally, the customer has made sure that their new summerhouse will be comfortable to use throughout the year, as they have chosen to have painted matchboard lining, full insulation, double glazing, a heavy duty floor, and a Light Oak lacquer on the floor.
The customer is also getting their own electrician to fit an electric pack inside for them.
