    Shed Features

    Relaxing unusual interior, my friends love coming over they say it makes them feel like they are on holiday. The shed was built just before lockdown and has had a few makeovers but the latest one I designed after coming back from safari in Kenya and, having nowhere to put my photographs, decided to change the summerhouse into a safari hut. To begin with I lined the walls and ceiling with bamboo garden screening giving it a real safari look. There are photographs on the walls, and I have also collected masks and tables from antiques markets, charity shops and car boots, keeping the costs low. I luckily already had directors chairs, bought from an antique emporium in Lancaster. It really feels so relaxing.

    Other Shed info

    The summerhouse was bought online just before lockdown and put up on site. I had it put on quite a high concrete base as, due to the next door's gardens being higher, my garden tends to flood especially with the current weather. However as I have planted water loving plants, and put a pump underground, my garden still looks great.
