This summerhouse is one of our Holkham Summerhouses
, and it has been installed in Chilwell, Nottinghamshire, for a customer who wanted a summerhouse with storage space. They opted for our Holkham as they liked its traditional design with its pitched roof. Like all of our garden buildings, it was designed and hand-made to order by the skilled CAD engineers and craftsmen inside the factory at our HQ in Narford, Norfolk. It was delivered and assembled at our customer’s address by members of our expert installations team, which is included in the price of the building as part of the service we offer our customers.
Our Holkham Summerhouse is available in a range of standard sizes from 1.8 x 2.4m to 4.8 x 6.0m. Our customer opted for a 2.4 x 4.8m summerhouse, which fits perfectly at the bottom of their garden. To afford a light and airy feel inside, there are windows in the front and the side of the building, as well as in the double doors. The windows are made using 4mm toughened safety glass, which this customer has chosen to have leaded in style to give their building a more traditional look. It also has an apex roof, which has been covered heavy duty roofing felt, applied with a propane torch to increase its longevity.
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.

Our customer has also opted to their Holkham finished in a Light Oak Preservative, which is what we offer to our customers as standard on this building. The Light Oak Preservative will ensure the timber is protected from fungi and woodworm while also giving it a nice sheen.
