Shed week could not end without a post about the great sheds from all over the world, we have had a hundreds of sheds added from overseas and even though we don’t have an offical International Shed of the year (It would need a sponsor so I could give a prize) but it’s wonderfull to see so many non UK sheddies sharing their sheds.
– not all the category had votes for International sheds – so here is the rundown of the top 5 this year a large (and by large I also mean massive) North American bias but hopefully the Europeans can fight back next time.
Congrats to all International sheddies your style and design is not everyone’s cup of tea (maybe us Brits are set in our shed ways) but you are creating big and small spaces and unique uses for your sheds.
Each week this summer, Inside&Out will feature some of the unique and cool garden sheds sent to us by Northeast Ohio gardeners.
If these two remind you of outhouses, that’s because one is an authentic outhouse, and the other is a replica.
Indoor plumbing was nonexistent for the Hazelton family living in Ashtabula. “I grew up with an outhouse, and there was no running water on our property,” says Shari Hazelton. “And that wasn’t long ago, because I’m 65.” So for her garden shed, Hazelton had an outhouse replica built from barn siding, and put in a few shelves for tools. “And that’s the beginning. I have some long johns that I’m going to put on a dummy, have the dummy seated inside and leave the door open,” she says, laughing. “You’ll be able to see it coming down the road. It’s just for fun.”
Of course if any of the sheddies from Ohio are reading this, then please Share your shed, it could be International shed of the year 2010.
