    Shed Features

    It is specifically designed for little people, where they can escape from interfering adults and play to their hearts content. There is no wi-fi, no electronic distractions, they just need to bring their imaginations.

    Other Shed info

    Having recently acquired six grandchildren within 3 years, I thought we might be needing a safe place for them to play together in the garden. The mini cottage was designed and built at my work, in such a way that it could be easily transported and assembled. Each section was painted in the back garden before building it. Internally there is a kitchen, table and chairs, and various battery powered lights. Toys, games and books are kept in there, and in. the winter it doubles as a storage facility for all the garden toys and equipment. As the surrounding plants and shrubs grow, so it will settle in and seem a natural habitat.
