An Update On Swaffham Men's Shed

By Rosie Floyd - 11th February 2022

You may have seen at the end of last year that we at Crane Garden Buildings embarked on an exciting project with men’s mental health group, Swaffham Men’s Shed. It has been a couple of months since we told you all about it so we thought we would update you all with the process of the build.

Since the last time we saw the group, its members have been very busy using their DIY skills to construct the individual panels needed for their new meeting place. We met up with them again at the end of January to help them start putting the panels of their new Superior Shed together and as you can see, the shed is really starting to take shape now!

Superior Shed created for Swaffham's Men Shed

Like last time, company partner Nick Crane, and Robert Kascak from our factory team, provided the team with guidance on the best way to connect the panels together, ensured everything was level and helped with the heavy lifting. A member of Swaffham Men’s Shed commented “We’re absolutely thrilled with the shed, it’s wonderful! It’s really nice to have a new home and we’ve got loads of plans for it.”

The Superior Shed isn't quite finished yet, but it is clad with smooth shiplap that has been painted in Sage from our Exterior Paint System. It also has our security pack installed, which includes stainless steel bars mortised into the window frame during manufacture.

We look forward to checking in with the group again once they’ve insulated and lined the interior of the shed and added all the finishing touches to their new meeting place.
