After a brilliant last few months some amazing sheds and very talented and innovative sheddies – the time has come to announce the sheds that have made it to the final of Shed of the year 2012 – which of course is sponsored by our friends at Cuprinol.

I do hope you will join me in saying what a great effort the sheddies have gone to again this year and an amazing collection of garden buildings – a lot of quirkyness this year but with a practical edge.
Now it’s up to the shed judges (Sarah Beeny , Neil Gaiman, Alex from shedworking, Shed of the year 2011 Winner Jon Earl and my goodself) to make the difficult decision, who out of these sheds will be Shed of the year 2012 – The winner will be announced during Shed Week – which starts on July 2nd 2012
During Shed week I will also post the Top 5 sheds in each category so that the other sheddies can see how they did.
