Outdoor Reading Room in Abingdon
This attractive octagonal summerhouse
was recently installed for a customer based in Abingdon, Oxfordshire. After approaching Crane Garden Buildings for a quote, the customer worked with our design team to create their bespoke summerhouse before it was built entirely by hand at our Norfolk HQ. As with all our luxury garden buildings
, the 3.6 x 3.6m Wiveton Summerhouse was crafted using FSC© Certified Scandinavian Redwood sourced sustainably from Sweden. After that, it was carefully loaded onto one of our Crane vans before being delivered and installed onsite by our friendly and professional fitting team.
Intended for use as a reading room, the interior of the summerhouse benefits from panoramic views due to its octagonal shape. Perfect for making the most of the garden, the summerhouse has double doors which can be pinned open by the polished brass door furniture on a warm sunny day. Each window features an attractive leaded design and can also be pinned open, allowing the lines between indoors and outdoors to be beautifully blurred. Fully insulated, the interior is lined with painted matchboard in the shade of Ivory, allowing light to travel around the space nicely.
I'd just like to say how great our Wiveton Summerhouse is. Both my wife and I think it looks great and fits beautifully into the garden. We were most impressed with your fitters and the electricians.

Externally, this pretty garden building sports a beautiful octagonal roof with grey slate composite tiles and crowned with a decorative finial. Our customer opted for smooth shiplap cladding painted in the Cream shade of our opaque exterior paint range. Further customisation options across our summerhouse range include Farrow & Ball interior or exterior paint, an electrical pack with optional heater or air conditioning and engineered flooring.
