This shed is Shed of the year 2007

The Roman Temple is a Folly. All the best stately homes can look across their estate and see a temple in the distance. It's just that this one is a bit nearer to the house, that's all !

Additional Info:

I remember admiring a ruined temple one year at the Chelsea Flower show in a garden-stone display. Following on from my interest in all things Roman, I was standing at the kitchen window one day some time later when I casually suggested to my wife that the shed might look better if it was converted to a Roman Temple. She was not amused! Three years passed during which time I produced a computer- simulated view of the garden with the proposed shed / Temple, and I continued to promote the idea at every opportunity. Then, on 23rd December 2004, I was at home when a parcel lorry arrived with my Christmas present, four (very big 2.2 metre) plastic/fibreglass Roman columns. I assumed this meant that I now had "Official Permission" to go ahead. Thank you to my wife and sons for my best ever Christmas present. Also featuring - Roman window bars / Amphora / Grape lights / Blue LED mood lighting / Alarm and CCTV / Roman cushions / Interior mural panels / Mosaic table / Roman statue / Two time zones (Britannia and Rome time)(The Tardis can only exist in ONE time zone). Future projects - scale model of the Baths of Caracula.
