Members of our installation team have installed this Holkham Summerhouse
for a customer based in Clanfield, Hampshire, with the delivery and installation included in the overall price of the building. It was designed to order by our in-house CAD teams, who created the manufacturing plans ready for our skilled craftsmen to then handcraft the building from FSC® certified timber inside our Norfolk factory.
Our Holkham Summerhouse is available in a range of sizes. You could have it made to be as small as 1.8 x 2.4m or as large as 4.8 x 6.0m. Our customer has opted for the 2.4 x 3.6m size, with a set of double doors and two fixed windows in the side of the building, and an additional double opening window set in either gable. The Holkham Summerhouse has an apex roof, which our customer has decided to have covered in grey slate effect tiles. Our customer has also chosen to have guttering installed to line the roof and collect any excess rainwater run-off from the roof, which will deposit it away from the building and protect the bottom boards of the building.
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.

Another option selected by our customer for their Holkham Summerhouse is the leaded style windows, which give the building a traditional look. Our customer has also chosen to have them double glazed as extra, providing additional comfort. The Holkham comes unlined and unpainted as standard, with the shiplap clad exterior being treated with a Light Oak preservative to help protect the timber from fungi and woodworm, making it a great option if you would like to decorate and line and insulate the building yourself. You can, however, upgrade to have a painted exterior, with the choice of our Exterior Paint System or Farrow & Ball, and you can also have the interior lined and insulated to turn it into a year-round use building if you wish.
