One of the best eBay purchases ever made. It was previously used as a horse feed storage shed for several decades in Ilkley before we saved it from rotting away, and gave it a new lease of life. Its a true multi use space that provides us with additional valuable space to either work, relax, tinker with projects or just entertain. We love our small cottage, but small comes with compromises and this shed has made our lives so much better, especially in 2020. As there arent many examples of these VanWide ventilated goods wagons about, we wanted to make sure that we didnt alter the exterior too much, as well as any interior modifications could be reversed. We like to think weve preserved its history, whilst also giving it a new life and future as a multi use space.
