    Shed Features

    The Smuggler's Notch, named for a mountain pass in Vermont in the US, has a bar under a canopy facing onto the garden. Behind the bar is the traditionally styled 'Snug' with a collection of books and artefacts, some of which used to grace my father's home bar. The wood burning fire in the hearth is a simulation, as is the fish tank.

    Other Shed info

    The shed is mostly constructed from reclaimed materials. The external walls, canopy soffits and 'fireplace' are all pallet wood laid flat in layers. The roof is one sheet of rubber under artificial grass. The roof, floor and walks are well insulated. The electrics, lighting and sound are all controlled from phone apps. The only part not home made was the deep button upholstery.
