Another unique use of a shed, A Dad’s Army museum and from a young sheddie, great potential if he keeps up his sheddie ways.

Selfbuild or off the shelf shed?

Both, The first shed is built by a shed making company somewhere near GT Yarmouth, Norfolk.

But the second (shop and living room/kitchen) is built by my dad and our neighbour.

Why have you got a shed? uses etc

To open it as a world war two/Dad’s Army museum to members of the public and occasionally news crews and newspaper reporters to come and look at my collection during the summer season.

I even lend some off my items to television, film and theatre companies.

Who are your shed inspirations?

My Grandfather whom gave me my first collectable and was the one who introduced me to dad’s army just under thirteen years ago. and of course i couldnt have done anything without all the cast and crew of Dad’s Army. In particular David Croft who has so much support in the museum and my own future.

Future Shed plans

Just keep collecting more and more and to get bigger and bigger.

How did you find out about our community?

Someone thought i had a good chance of winning shed of the year and it would also be good publicity!
