This rustic summerhouse has been installed as an additional work area for a customer running an antiques business based in Petworth, West Sussex. They opted for a pretty, yet rustic looking, Holkham Summerhouse
as they wanted a building that had a similar aesthetic to their shop. To create the tailor-made summerhouse our customer had been dreaming of, our CAD engineers drew the manufacturing plans to order before it was hand-made from FSC® certified timber at our factory in Narford, Norfolk and then delivered and assembled at our customer’s premises by members of our expert installations team.
From 1.8 x 2.4m to 4.8m x 6.0m, our Holkham is available is a range of sizes, with this one measuring 3.0 x 3.0m. It has a traditional look with Georgian bars fitted on the windows, as well as the double doors, grey slate effect tiles added to the pitched roof and a painted exterior in the shade ‘Pebble from our exterior paint system.
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.

To enable our customer to work comfortably inside throughout the year, the walls and ceiling have been lined and insulated with natural matchboard, the windows are double glazed and an electric pack with heater has been installed too. The Holkham comes unlined purely for summer use as standard, but our customer has chosen to add those additional extras onto their building so that they can have warmth, lighting and power inside their garden office.
