We all know how important sheds are – we even created a competition about them!
Now a new book from Henry Cole is shedding light on The Life-changing Magic of Sheds
Henry Cole, host of Shed and Buried, Junk and Disorderly and Find It, Fix It, Flog It, professional motorcyclist and shed aficionado, introduces readers to the joy of sheds. A shed is a place to sit, a place to fettle and a place to stash, a spiritual refuge and a state of mind. From construction to maintenance, from foundations to roof to damp-proofing in between (“nobody wants rusty nuts”), here is all the practical information you need to start your own shed odyssey, delivered in Henry’s inimitable style.
“Your shed is your refuge. You need to make that pilgrimage to the bottom of the garden. Whether you’re walking down a muddy track or crunching along a gravel path… Breathe in the fresh air. Then pull open the door, grapple for the light switch, fire up the heaters and turn on the kettle. You’re the king in there.”
Henry covers everything from achieving that musty, oily shed smell (if you know, you know) through shed security and style to socialising (is it a one cuppa shed, or are you happy for invited mates to linger?) Sheds are about endeavour. They’re about restoration and preservation: spiritually, mentally and physically.
