This months Shed are all the Finalists for Shed of the year 2013
The 2013 finalists are
Best Eco Shed: Eco bike høøse
Eco bike høøse owned by Camden Town resident Marcus Sheilds has won Best Eco Shed for his brightly coloured, sustainable eco-shed, complete with a pretty wildflower ‘green roof’ and recycled yogurt carton cladding which houses his and his wife’s 11 bikes.
Best Garden Office: Nest Design Studio
Sheddie Jonathan Sullivan of Modbury, Devon has been awarded a place in the final for his beautifully built Nest Design Studio. Positioned overlooking stunning views of Dartmoor, Sullivan uses the light and warm space as a place to work from.
Best Cabin/Summerhouse: Cabin Habit
This quirky and industrial style cabin owned by Abigail Walker of Pangbourne in Berkshire has drawn influence from a Nissen hut. Combined with her love of vintage style and all things mid-century, this corrugated steel den is fully insulated and lined with an airy feel.
Best Workshop/Studio: The Stencil Shed
Retired Guerilla artist Luke Hollingworth, otherwise known as ‘Syd’, from Malmesbury in Wiltshire was a finalist in last year’s competition and has resubmitted his new and improved Stencil Shed after working solidly on it over the past year. His whacky creation is used as a space to house his art work and features a smiley face optical illusion, a cider bar as well as a full sized gorilla that guards the entrance!
Best Unique Shed: Boat Roofed Shed
This creative and unusual shed owned by Alex Holland has a roof that consists of an upturned boat. Positioned in the Cambrian Mountain range near Machynlleth, mid-Wales, the shed houses a refrigerator, gas cooker, sink and sound system well used for parties.
Best Pub Shed: 3 Steps Bar
3 Steps Bar owned by Garry Logan of Ayrshire looks like a normal shed from the outside until you step inside. Having spent a fortune, the pub shed is complete with pub paraphernalia including a brass footrest, a last orders bell, a fruit machine, dartboard, sound system, optics, sky sports and wi-fi.
Best Tardis Shed: Tardis
This replica of the Tardis from the popular sci-fi TV series is owned by talented sheddie David Lifton from Chelmsford. Built for his Doctor Who mad son Rhys, the slightly scaled down version of the original took five months to create.
Best Normal Shed: Queen Emma Galleon
Winner of the Normal Shed category is the Queen Emma Galleon, a boat shaped shed modeled on the HMS Victory and the HMS Warrior. Owned by Southampton based Clare Kapma-Saunders, the impressive creation is complete with a top deck, rigging, skull and cross bones, hammock and captains quarters.
