The basildon recorder reports on one of our sheddie and his hope in this years Shed of the year.
AN Englishman’s home might be his castle, but for one Southend grandfather it’s his shed that claims the title.
Reg Miller, 64, has spent the past 18 months converting his garden shed into a Caribbean pirate ship paradise, complete with dead man’s chest, rigging and the Jolly Roger.
The shed, which sails under the moniker the Lady Sarah Out of Worthing, is a firm favourite with Mr Miller’s five grandchildren and he has now entered it into the Shed of the Year 2009 competition.
Mr Miller, of Bournemouth Park Road, said: “The grandchildren love it. They think it’s their own captain’s cabin. It’s got everything from muskets, bones and rigging, to its own flag.”
