The Blakeney Summerhouse
With its sloping roof and widely overhanging eaves, a Chalet is a much loved style of building up and down the gardens of Britain. With its many glazed panels you can bring the outside in. A real classic design finished to the highest of standards.
These buildings make perfect settings for alfresco dining or indeed just as extra space.View Video
Our Blakeney Summerhouses are available in a range of sizes:
2.4 x 1.8m (8 x 6ft) to 6.0 x 6.0m (20 x 20ft)
The Blakeney Summerhouse comes in a rang eof sizes to suit all types of gardens. You can then choose the doors and windows to suit you. One of the great services that we provide is that as we make each building to order we can produce none standard sizes and designs whenever and wherever required.
The Blakeney Summerhouse does not come lined and insulated as standard. We do offer lining and insulation for this range if you require it.
To have your building lined and insulated means that you can use it all year round, it enhances the look and feel of the Summerhouse as well as decreasing noise and increasing comfort.Show More
The Blakeney Summerhouse comes with an extreme-wear, heavy duty, 35kg green mineralised felt roof covering. We can also offer Cedar Shingles or Slate Effect roof tiles.Show More
The Blakeney comes with a 400mm roof overhang as standard, for both attractiveness and to protect the façade of your Summmerhouse.
The Blakeney Summerhouses come treated with a light oak wood preservative. This protects the timber as well as adding a light stain. We can also offer other paint systems as Crane Sheds and Summerhouses have worked closely with SIKKENS and VALTTI to make available the best possible coatings systems for your building. Choose from the following optional paint systems.
Crane Sheds and Summerhouses have worked closely with SIKKENS to create a coating system which provides long lasting protection for your building yet still allows the grain to be seen, enhancing the natural beauty of the timber. SIKKENS was shown to be the best translucent wood stain in trials carried out by TRADA (The Timber Research and Development Association).Show More
Our Valtti system is proven to be the best possible protection for exterior timber. Valtti is fully opaque and gives an exceptionally durable, extremely low maintenance, solid 4 coat finish. Our extensive colour range is inspired by nature and the soft neutral tones of traditional colonial buildings.Show More
Within our workshops, we house our own Joinery Works so we make the double doors for our Summerhouses. This ensures that the high quality that we demand is met and we can offer a bespoke service. Our doors are constructed from hemlock, which is a timber particularly suitable for doors as apart from being durable it is far less susceptible to movement and warping than other timbers traditionally used in doors. They are fully glazed consisting of 4 panes, using 4mm toughened safety glass and finished with the finest brass fittings.Show More
We make our own windows within our Joinery Works. The windows are made up of large, square panes featuring 4mm toughened safety glass and finished with solid brass furniture. It is possible to add further sets if you desire.Show More
Our timber cladding is machined from very high quality Redwood grown in North Sweden, close to the arctic circle. These slowly grown trees produce a much more dense and stable timber than others. Our buildings are clad in shiplap as standard but we also offer weatherboard cladding for a more rustic finishShow More
Our standard and robust floorboards are set on closely spaced tanalised floor joists. If you are storing particularly heavy items or machinery we would recommend our heavy duty floor or should you be spending long periods of time in your building then we would advise on our underfloor insulation.Show More
Make your building multi-functional by sectioning and separating the space. Add storage to the back or side of your summerhouse for outdoor furniture etc.Show More
