This National Trust Ickworth Summerhouse
has been installed in our customer’s garden, very close to the beach in Lossiemouth, Grampian. It was hand-made by the skilled craftsmen and women at our Norfolk factory before being delivered and assembled at our customer's address by members of our trusted installations team, which is all included as part of the service we offer.
The Ickworth is a traditionally styled summerhouse with an apex roof and a charming roof overhang which provides the building with protection against wind and rain. It also features double doors fitted with cross leaded glass and two cross leaded opening windows, which makes it perfect the admiring the rest of the garden.
An old outbuilding at Ickworth House in Suffolk was the source of inspiration for our chalet-style Ickworth Summerhouse, which also features an overhang and apex roof.
The external features of this summerhouse also add to its charming character, with its black corrugated sheeting on the roof and the cast iron Fleur-de-Leys style door and window furniture. The cladding is made from roughly cut, vertically sawn boards which help to give the building a more rustic look.
I don't think you could have done anything else to improve my experience with you. The two guys that came to install my Ickworth Summerhouse were friendly. I was particularly impressed with the two guys that came the previous week to lay the base. I have a very sloping garden and they had to build the back of the base up a bit. Excellent staff and service. All four members represented Crane very well. We are really enjoying our Crane Summerhouse. It was even tranquil watching the heavy rainstorm yesterday!
