    £250 to £499


My shed is made from 99.9% upcycled materials. My son makes natural play areas for schools as a living and he gives me all the off cuts or if he is taking down any old sheds then anything decent I save and reuse. Recycling and up cycling is key for me and my projects. Im a retired gardener with a love of the outdoors and creativity. My shed is a hub for all my hobbies. It enables me to do my model making and potting up my plants.

Ive kitted it out with electricity and log burner which comes in handy in the winter. The overall look of the shed has evolved naturally into a bodgers paradise.

My eight grandchildren love it, they instantly want to make something when entering and seeing my array of vintage tools and rustic materials, from the minute they enter my shed they have no interest in their gadgets such as phones its back to basics playing and creating. Thats whats important to me. I dont want a perfect polished shed I want something that sparks the imagination and forms memories.

Other info

The only materials Ive bought to build my shed are the roofing felt and tacks. Even the floor I made from old notice boards from a school.
