International Shed 2017 winner #ShedOfTheYear

This year we officially took entrants from international sheddies, and our team have decided on the winner, after a tough decision.

It’s the glasshouse – I expect calls of the now usual #notashed – but I loved how a simple idea and recycled materials have made a lovely looking space, like a posh bnb but in the forest.

It’s owned by Susan and Norbert Calnin from Wisconsin

Built in just 3 months from recycled glass door panels and a tin roof rescued from a local salvage yard, Susan and Norbert built their shed to offer weary travellers a few home comforts in a natural setting.

The shed comes complete with a real bed with a headboard, mattress and linens and glass walls to bring the “bedroom into the forest, or the forest into the bedroom”.

Other amenities include a full bathroom with freestanding bath, kitchenette and ipod dock.

Hope to see more innovative sheds entered next year from all over the world.
