    Shed Features

    The shed is inspired by the Empire Exhibition 1938 in Bellahouston Park very close to my house. The exhibition covered the whole park at compromises of Pavilions built in a modernist style as well as small kiosks on which my shed was built. As it has insulation and power it can be used all year round and has had several overnight stays. The interior is simply furnished with an old sofa and chaise longue from the house plus a slotted together plywood bar I made for its opening night. I discovered recently that kiosk is the Persian word for summer house!

    Other Shed info

    The shed was built from scratch based on a wooden frame. The starting point was the lucky purchase of three. Steel windows on Gumtree that fitted the style I wanted. The roof is mono pitched raising to the front and covered in thick roofing felt and insulated from underneath. The walls are clad on the outside with Coroline, a corrugated material usually used for roofing but giving a pleasing tin shed look when used on walls. Behind the cladding is a combination of breathable membrane, OSB board, insulation and plasterboard.I wanted Crittal style doors but couldn’t find any in Scotland when trawling through internet auction sites so decided to make my own. I bought a MIG welder and fabricated a frame with a lock box and installed tempered glass panels. I decided to have only one door and a glass panel as two doors would complicate matters.Finally I installed the electrics with the power running from my house via the garage incorporating ceiling lights and a socket circuit. The shed also has internet connection so can be used for working from if required. The build took exactly a year and on a he whole was very enjoyable especially working around problems. My son Oliver also helped with the build especially at the start when we put up the frame and sheeting.
