We bought the shed as a stable around 30 years ago. Then it bacame a shed for our childrens bikes, lawn mowers etc. When they all left home their furniture was stored in there with various tins of paint etc. Already owning a holiday let here in the Black Country we decided to turn it into a one bedroom holiday let. We obtained planning permission, as we live in an old farmhouse bordereing onto the green belt and we began the renovation in early summer last year.
It was early spring when I asked my husband to cut back the bushes that had engulfed the wooden shed. I wanted it to be done before the birds began buildibng their nests. When he began he realised just how rotten the timbers were and the windows were broken. That was the lightbulb moment. It has been a fabulous project.
