    Shed Features

    Hi my name is Rosie, the Hideaway started with the idea of a bird table in a small wooded area of the garden as l enjoy bird watching and feeding the birds so much. This progressed initially with the addition of an area of up cycled decking where we intended to have a bench seat but our plans became a little more ambitious with the Hideaway our retreat amongst the trees. This is a very modest studio style bird hide where we can sit and watch birds feeding ,view nest boxes and store bird food and supplies. The Hideaway was constructed by my husband David largely from up cycled scaffold boards and timber. Its modelled on a National Trust vertical planked shed with a galvanised tin roof, large viewing windows to the front and a stable door. It is lightly insulated and lve painted using Cuprinol inside to reflect a Moroccan theme.

    Other Shed info

    Despite this being a small redundant area of ground in the woodland garden we have been able to create a magical, tranquil hideaway where we can escape and connect with nature. The project has been a pleasant distraction over the past 6mths of confinement and only now can we see the benefits to our well being that such a small space can bring into our lives. We hope to see plenty of bird life from the Hideaway and l recently counted some 30 species of birds in the RSPB survey and there some 10 nest boxes currently occupied. The Hideaway is quite modest but we hope to spent many hours relaxing, picnicking and possibly sipping Prosecco in there in the times to come... Kind Regards Rosie. XX
