Didn't think much of this weeks episode except for the American style log cabin
Do any of you guys have such amazing sheds? would love to see pics
I dream of building cabin/summer house But can not make up my mind on design
I have to say I was rather surprised that the Caribbean one won it's section, but hey ho that's what the voters liked. Unfortunately my shed was inherited from my Landlord, has a dodgy roof and bottom and a rather intimidating family of giant spiders inhabiting it ..........
That's what we said "hey ho" ish too
Oh no not intimidating spiders! That's a whole new thread
Results are a mystery to me too. That video shed the other week was bottom of my list, just a cheap house extension.
Think it's a boy thing as my OH loved it
Could well be a boy thing... My favourite on that programme was the teapot-shaped one. Totally whacky! And the idea of an eco shed just seems so sensible - why spend thousands if you can build it for next to nothing?
Unfortunately since my house is in a conservation area I have to conform with my shed... hence it's boringly small and dark brown.
Oh I loved the Eco ones too Liri, and especially that tea pot!
I thought the winner of that section was well deserved though and agreed him being the winner but if I could have one it would have been the lovely one where the guy lets cyclists stay the night for nothing! Tempted me to borrow a bike and cycle past
I had no idea that in conservation areas that they dictated on your sheds too! Can it be seen from the roadside then or do they send helicopters over?!!
My son has just built a pub in his garden - most of the bits and bobs came off ebay and car boots
Oh lilylouise that is fantastic! I bet you are round your sons all the time now
When is opening time?
This little brown shed is from B n Q cost approx £130 . It's the best little shed I've ever had. Doesn't leak, everything in there is bone dry, and if you use the plastic outer packaging you have an insulated floor. It does come with a floor though.
This is an old summer house I 'acquired' . As you can see it needs tarting up which I will get around to when I've finished my pebble garden. I know a man who can but he's not available at the mo.I already have the blinds for windows (from old kitchen) the paint and cushions for the seating. We have already sat in it on a wet afternoon and had a cup of Tomatoe soup and cheese sarnie. Better than the Ritz. (Nearly)
Love em both! Is the first one molded plastic RB? Hmmm need something for OH tools as all over the house!
as for the second one! Why can't I acquire something so brill! Can't wait to see when you have done up , far better than the ritz any day
BM. Yes it's moulded plastic but sturdy. Mine is the small size there is a larger size but I didn't have the room. My laughingly called 'summer house' is the butt of jokes with family and neighbours but just you wait. Seriously, it wobbles, leaks , has no door, windows are plastic and rattle about but I love it. I might pop in it tonight for a 'sit down' and cogitate on my own about absolutely nothing. I'm good at that
Wish I could join you as I'm good at that too!
Yes, BM, we're on a steep slope so my shed can be seen from quite a way away... And 7ft x 5ft is the maximum size allowed, which once you've stuffed the mower in, doesn't leave a great deal of room for anything else!
Love you to join me, we could,do nothing together. With tea n cakes of course.

Thanks Beaus Mum The pub is open all day
What does Liri mean ?
