Mark's Folly

This is Normal Shed of the year 2012

..more

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.
