    Shed Features

    My shed is great for soirees and get togethers with friends. There's is room for 7 to 8 people.
    I wanted a space that was more of a 'Winter House' rather than a 'Summer House' and it's always Christmas at 'Deborah's Dacha'. It's a warm cosy space on 2 levels and the perfect space to relax and work on Textile craft projects which is my hobby.

    Other Shed info

    My shed is inspired by Russian culture. Since visiting Moscow on a school trip in the 1970's, I have been fascinated by the Art, Music, Literature, History and Folk Tales of the country, and so I have tried to re create a space which reflects not just the style of Russian culture but a period from the past. I have also created the interior so that it seems there is no electricity (although there is)
    It is a double glazed building in my garden that was derelict for years.
    I have kept the cost of decorating and styling my shed to a minimum, by finding things in charity shops, recycling things and making things myself
