Selfbuild or off the shelf shed?

larch clad selfbuild.

Why have you got a shed? uses etc

Predominately for storage of timber and lawn mower although i do have 3 seats in there and a fridge full of beer, hopefully one day ill insulate it and put in a small log burner. The shed is also a great backdrop to the garden it ties everything in around it and without it the garden would be very drab.

How would you describe your shed?

Quaint, sturdy, honest, pretty, tactile, maintenance free, and long lasting.

Who are your shed inspirations?
I worked for 2 years on EDENHOPE a SELF BUILD of an ENVIRONMENTALLY AND FINANCIALLY AFFORDABLE HOUSE IN S.W SCOTLAND. The owners Andy and Sarah were of great influence to me.

Other influences, the god we know as Conran! and Trada timber cladding info.

No Title

Last year, TRADA merged with the Timber Trade Federation to form the new organisation Timber Development UK (TDUK). For many years BM TRADA, part of the Element Materials Technology Group, has provided technical and administrative services to TRADA and its members. The formal managed services contract between TDUK and BM TRADA ended on 31 January 2022.

Future Shed plans
Fully insulate and winterise
