Spend more time in your garden

If you've ever thought about building an extension or conservatory, an outdoor room offers a less costly alternative as well as being unlikely to put you to the trouble of applying for planning permission.

We sell sheds and summerhouses from Crane, a Norfolk family business which prides itself on the quality of workmanship and materials in its outdoor rooms. They may not be the cheapest garden buildings on the market, but they're beautifully made from high-density FSC timber, and designed to last for decades. The price you pay includes delivery and installation, and the way they're constructed means they can be disassembled and taken with you if you move house.

Crane has designed a range of buildings in several colours exclusively for us; the collection includes summerhouses, an outdoor studio, a gazebo, a greenhouse and proper garden sheds, including a range designed in collaboration with the National Trust. In these videos you can see how they look in detail, and we also offer some tips for dressing your outdoor room. Managing Director James Crane also explains why, if you love your garden, their products really are worth the investment if you want to spend more time in your outdoor space.
