We have installed one of our summerhouses in Hitchin, Hertfordshire for a customer wanting somewhere to relax and enjoy their garden from. Our customer selected our Holkham Summerhouse
from our wide range of high quality summerhouses. It was designed to our customer’s specifications by our CAD engineers and hand-crafted to order from FSC® certified timber inside our Norfolk factory. This wooden summerhouse was then delivered and installed at our customer’s address by our installations team, which we include in the price of all our summerhouses as part of our end-to-end service.
The Holkham Summerhouse has a traditional design with an apex roof. It is available in plenty of sizes, with our customer opting for a 3.0 x 3.0m wooden summerhouse. The Holkham benefits from having plenty of glazing, giving it a light and airy feel inside. Our customer has opted for plain windows, with a single fixed set placed on either side of the glazed double doors in the front, and an additional double opening window set installed on either side of the summerhouse. The pitched roof of this wooden summerhouse is covered in heavy duty felt and the exterior is clad with shiplap, offering a smooth exterior finish. Our Holkham Summerhouse comes treated with a light oak preservative as standard, but as our customer wanted their summerhouse delivered and installed with a painted exterior, they upgraded to our Exterior Paint System finish. The colour they opted for was Ash, which is a dark-neutral shade that will stand out in any garden setting.
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 Holkham is designed as a summer-use building with an unlined interior, but as our customer wanted a year-round use building, we have tailored the design to meet their requirements. Our customer has opted to add full insulation, lining and double glazing to ensure comfort inside their wooden summerhouse in every season. They also chose to have electrics installed so that their summerhouse could be supplied with power and lighting. Our customer has opted to have the walls and ceiling lined with solid pine natural matchboard, but for an alternative look, you may want to consider having painted matchboard lining and one of our engineered or lacquered flooring options.
From traditional summerhouses to more modern summerhouse designs, we have plenty of styles for you to choose from in our summerhouses collection. If you would like to see our wooden summerhouses for yourself, we warmly invite you to visit us at one of our UK show centres where you can take a closer look at our display models.
