Shed News

So long and thanks for all the sheds….

No I am not locking the shed door for the last time and dissipating from the shedspace (shame I hear some of you say)

When I first saw this shed on Flickr it was title Douglas Adams’ Shed that grabbed me, then of course the great shed.

It got me wondering & searching the web, I did not know that “Douglas Adams” had a shed, of course contacting the photographer Carl – he explained the errors of my thinking.

Although my grandfather was indeed Douglas Adams, he was not THE Douglas Adams of the Hitchhikers Guild To The Galaxy and many other great written works.

My grandfather Douglas however was an engineer and designer and worked his whole life in this shed.

It’s a wonderful looking shed – in fact one of the most perfect workshop sheds I have seen for a while – everything in it’s place but with a personality of a great sheddie- summing up the shed I wanted when I started all those years ago – and I have never achieved.

Thanks for Carl for allowing me to Share his grandfathers shed with you and I hope it inspires other sheddies to get down the shed and make something.
