    Shed Features

    This shed is built in the tudor style..from genuine 16th/17th century oak with plaster has a real flagstone floor. I built it as I love unspoilt old pubs which are becoming hard to find nowadays. I brew all types of beer particualy Strong dark ale and barley wine so this is in a way a brewery tap to sample the odd 15 percent grog. It cost me £70 to build..yes £70...All the materials apart from the roof timbers are scrap that people were throwing out..Including the ancient oak beams..and some of the furniture. It is the length of a darts dart..and at a squeeze you can (and have) had 12 people I built this in 2005...long before the shed of the year was invented.

    Other Shed info

    Just shows you what you can do...This was a dark and damp corner of the garden..from grabbing stuff friends didn't want it is now a really useful part of the garden. The cupboard and shelves were on a bonfire in the back field...the infill panels were in a derelict shed at a mates farm etc...have a look around see what you can find. i have 2 other sheds..please check them out if you like...CHEERS!!!!
