The Blickling Shed by Crane stands combines a classic form with unique features for the discerning user. A square window set lets light into the shed, while a recess at the end proves useful for storing all manner of garden items. Inspired by ages gone by, yet using modern techniques, Crane’s new range of low-maintenance garden sheds is both affordable and beautiful. They are real gardeners’ sheds, with traditional design features, such as vertical sawn boards, corrugated roofing and a choice of attractive colours to suit any garden. The inspiration for this range was taken from outbuildings situated at National Trust properties scattered across East Anglia. Crane visited and photographed many of the buildings, researching materials and construction and, in collaboration with the National Trust, designed this wonderful range. These sheds are constructed from FSC® certified Scandinavian redwood and made in Norfolk by skilled craftsmen. 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.
