    Shed Features

    The Green Dragon was built during lockdown and inspired by the Hobbit pub in Lord of the Rings. Complete with fascia timber beams, bar, fireplace and a round hobbit style window, it's a place for us to share with family and friends, host a barbecue, or just a quiet corner to chill out away from the household. We've had a few visitors but lockdown means it hasn't been shared as much as we'd like, though myself and my other half have had occasional movie nights and the odd intimate meal by candlelight.

    Other Shed info

    Created during lockdown, the building was a shell with a locked but rotting door, missing window and was full of junk from previous tenants. Fortunately, the structure was in good nick, apart from a rotted section along the edge of the roof and we were chuffed to find it had working electricity. Carrie (my other half) had been wanting to use the space for years and as a project to occupy me whilst furloughed, suggested converting it into a pub from Middle Earth. She had the nominal idea of just fitting a few bits of pallet wood to the ceiling, painting the door and fitting a window, but once I got hold of the idea, it soon became evident it would be a bit more than that.
