Crane 1.8 x 2.5m Summerhouse, FSC-Certified (Scandinavian Redwood), Cream

Product information

A smaller version of the original Crane summerhouse, this beautiful build offers a stunning focal point for your garden, and a tranquil place to work, study or relax. Large, leaded glass windows and doors allow natural sunlight to flood in for a serene atmosphere.

The summerhouse is handmade in the UK from high-grade FSC® certified northern Scandinavian redwood, and the exterior is coated in an attractive choice of either Cream, Sage green, Willow or Flint micro porous paint that protects the wood throughout the seasons.
With its high quality cedar shingle roof it has been designed to meet modern planning requirements.

Although all Crane buildings have timber floors, you need a ready prepared base before you take delivery. The base must be constructed of either paving slabs laid on mortar or a concrete base no less than 10cm thick. We recommend this base be the size of the building footprint.

Additional information

Although all Crane buildings have timber floors, you need to have a ready, prepared base that has been laid by a professional before you take delivery. The base must be constructed of either paving slabs laid on mortar or a concrete base no less than 10cm thick. It is also recommended that your base is the metric size of the building to help with water drainage.

It is necessary to stress the importance of having a solid, level concrete base for your building, as it is crucial to support the building structure. Crane are unable to install the building if the base is not level (when tested with a spirit level).

All buildings, irrespective of style, also require clearance around the structure to aid installation, maintenance, redecoration and air circulation, as well as to allow space for the roof overhangs and fascias. Therefore Crane require at least 30cm around all sides of your building.

Please refer to the concrete base plan in the Product Information PDF below and do not hesitate to contact Crane for further guidance.

Q & As

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Crane Summerhouse We were so pleased with the way our local Peterborough store helped when we had a problem. It was dealt with very efficiently. We have now had two years pleasure with our summerhouse and are looking forward to spring and the summer. The product is well built and excellent value when you compare it with others. Thank you Cranes and John Lewis. 30 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gorgeous in the garden We purchased the summerhouse earlier this year and it was delivered at the end of June. The installation by Cranes was efficient and completed in under three hours.We are delighted with the quality and the construction of the summerhouse. It is beautifully finished,painted, leaded styled windows and brass fittings. We now have a small garden room and have fitted it out with two easy chairs and can enjoy the garden whatever the weather. Thank you to both Cranes and John Lewis! 09 August 2014
