This 2.4 x 1.8m chalet-style building is our Blakeney Summerhouse
, and it has been installed in our customer’s garden in Knaphill, Surrey to use as a pretty writing room, away from the hustle and bustle of their house.
The customer’s garden is sheltered, with several trees surrounding it, so for this reason, they asked if we could remove the standard roof overhang of the Blakeney to allow more light into their summerhouse. We were happy to do this, especially since it means that the customer will get more enjoyment out of their new building.
To help brighten up their garden with the summerhouse, the customer chose to have cedar shingle tiles on the roof, and the building has been painted in the colour Cream from our Valtti Paint Range. This light, bright feel has been carried on inside the Blakeney, as it has matchboard lining that has also been painted in this light, neutral colour.
I just wanted to let you know that we have been delighted with our Blakeney Summerhouse and it is getting a lot of use despite the appalling weather we have had since it went up on 13th June. The specification we eventually worked out with your help is exactly what we wanted and fits the site perfectly. Communication with the factory worked well and the team who came to install it did a very professional job. We will have no hesitation in recommending Crane to our friends.

As well as the matchboard lining, the customer also chose to have full insulation inside the summerhouse to make it comfortable to use through the year, as well as having a Natural lacquer on the floor to give it a protective and attractive sheen finish.
