Trees are slowly grown to make the timber more dense and ensure a high quality, close grain that’s less susceptible to dead knots. Two-tone painted finish The timber is protected through the year by a fully opaque micro-porous paint in the colour Steel. The internal walls, as well as the underside of the roof overhang, is painted in the paler colour, Storm. These two colours work well together, offering an attractive contrast.

Delivery and assembly Delivery and assembly in your garden, anywhere in the mainland UK, by Crane Garden Buildings is included in the price. Their in-house Installation Team of experienced fitters liaises with customers to meet expected delivery times. Base construction and clearance 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’s also recommended that your base is the metric size of the building to help with water drainage. It’s necessary to stress the importance of having a solid, level concrete base for your building, as it’s 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. Want to see it first?
