Who are your Shed inspirations

All the sheddies on readersheds, There are lots of great sheds,something for everyone,sizes,shapes,colours you name it its there somewhere, and I hope my shed is now part of the ever increasing family,and that its also an inspiration for others to follow.

Future Shed plans

Still got plans to add to it – things around the outside have been planned for a long time, ponds, planters, bird boxes, dovecott, gables over doorways etc.It’ll probably be another 4 years til i get that done and then there’ll be something else, but i love it.

How did you find out about our community

Couple of years ago was an article in the local paper, I was thinking of entering last year but i just was n’t ready but boy am i glad i did, the whole thing has been a whirlwind.

What word or words would you use to sum up Sheds
