    Shed Features

    Built 2 years ago using reclaimed material. I wanted something that looked as though it had been there for a long time. Our house is 1930's and part of the famous Bournville Village Trust and during the early development of the area George Cadbury championed many different styles of house. I wanted the shed to reflect that ethos.Also my wife wanted some sort of folly and as I wanted a shed; I decided to combine both wishes. I therefore used reclaimed bricks, old Welsh slate for the roof and genuine turn of the century ridge tiles and finials. The stone bay window structure is from a 18th century farm house. The timber is tantalised log- lap with a green colour wash to help it blend into the vegetation.

    It took about 2 months for me to complete the shed from start to finish.
