Modern techniques infused with inspiration from ages gone by form the Orford Summerhouse. This striking and versatile building can add an invaluable dining or work space, or simply a quiet spot to relax in, and its unique design allows it to fit neatly into a corner of your garden.
Constructed in Norfolk by skilled craftsmen, the Orford design is inspired by outbuildings from several National Trust properties across East Anglia. Crane visited and photographed many of these buildings to research the materials and construction, and consequently drew their designs in collaboration with the National Trust.
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.
