Selfbuild or off the shelf shed?


Why have you got a shed? uses etc

I’ve got a shed because I work from home in a rural part of Aberdeenshire and I wanted my office to be separate from the house.

How would you describe your shed?

Wooden shed constructed on stilts (well, four large pieces of granite roller). Nordic design with painted door and windows. Small deck in front. Really well constructed and insulated to protect me from the weather up here – we are very exposed! Laid out inside with fitted desk, shelves and sofa for the odd snooze. Wooden panelling and sisal flooring.

Who are your shed inspirations?

My neighbour down the road, who built an outbuilding in this style, and in fact built my shed.

Future Shed plans


How did you find out about our community?

A colleague at work sent me the details.
