This 2.4 x 3.0m Holkham Summerhouse
has been installed in our customer’s garden in Windlesham, Surrey to be used as attractive storage shed. The customer wanted a simple building for garden storage, but because it is in full view of their house, they wanted a building that also looked nice, as opposed to a simple shed. Like all our garden buildings, it was designed to order by our in-house CAD engineers before being handcrafted from FSC® certified timber by skilled craftsmen inside our Norfolk factory.
Our customer opted for our Holkham Summerhouse as they liked the look of the building. Our Holkham has a pitched roof with windows in three out of the four sides, as well as in the double doors, to give the building a light and airy feel inside. As our customer is going to be using the building as a storage space, they have chosen to have it unlined, which is the standard option on our Holkham Summerhouse.
To achieve the look that they wanted for their new summerhouse, they chose to have Georgian bars fitted to the windows and cedar shingle tiles on the roof, with the terracotta colour of the cedar shingles naturally weathering to a beautiful silvery-grey shade over time. The smooth shiplap that this building is cladded with as standard has been painted in the colour Twine from our exterior paint system at the request of our customer.
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.
