What our judges said.
“what a inspiring bunch of sheds this year, congratulations to the winner, let me know when England are playing next” Sarah Beeny
This looks like great fun, and those trapezoidal windows in the roof! not an easy thing to do, and the builder provided the best description. Great job, I want to have a drink there. – Lloyd Alter (treehugger)
Like the ceiling fan idea. If I had a shed like this with a bar in it I’d never leave. – Tony (Last years shed of the year winner)
“Pubs and sheds. It feels like there’s a natural link between them, two of the world’s greatest building concepts which are far more than the bricks and mortar (or timber and felt) from which they’re constructed. As soon as you step inside a great shed, you immediately have a warm and comfortable sensation, and that’s exactly how you should feel in a great pub too. Bring the two together and – BINGO! – you’ve got a very worthy winner indeed.” – Alex from Shedworking
I would like to thanks everyone involved this year for Shed of the year 2008, the judges, the main sponsors – Garden Buildings Direct, our other sponsors – the “cheese shed” and “Make mine a builders tea” and of course the biggest thanks go to all the sheddies who took part, without you readersheds.co.uk is nothing.
