My shed is just the right size for my garden tools but not big enough to become another storage location for household junk. It has nice proportions and make a pleasing feature for the size of garden. The design also incorporates a loft storage feature which further utilises the space. The rainwater from the roof is collected in a storage system for use on the allotment.
Lots of recycled materials used which include welsh slate and leaded windows from a reclamation yard. The door was scrounged from a friend who was throwing it out and parts from a double bed are in there too. The base was constructed using surplus slabs from a friends greenhouse mounted on concrete piles. The shed consists mainly of 4 X 2's joined using some very ingenious brackets that I found in a tooling catalogue and clad in shiplap. Finally the whole shed was given a coat of Seagrass and Country Cream Garden Shades paint. The latest addition is an internal light powered by a solar panel on the roof.
