Shed of the year


You may not have noticed, but this is National Shed Week! We’re showing you our favourites from the dozens of entries for the Shed of the Year 2012 competition sponsored by Cuprinol.

The Water Shed

The owner of ‘The Water Shed’, Geoff Hill, describes this as ‘a floating pavilion of all things sheddy’!

New England style shed

Really pretty at night, this New England-style shed belongs to Pauline Carlisle in Comber, Co. Down.

boatcrash shed

This ‘Boatcrash’ shed owned by Jo Candy is built on a frame of four wooden tripods, framed with oak and silver birch saplings, with green oak weatherboarding on the roof and straw bale walls. It’s still evolving apparently, and totally dry inside!

recycled shed

And this is just the perfect shed for any use. Built by ‘Shedi Master’ (!), it’s in Malmesbury in Wiltshire, and got planning permission in the garden of a grade 2 listed building in a conservation area. Apart from the featherboard clapping, it’s made entirely out of scrap materials.

To see all the entries and the winner go to

Waltons have a huge range of sheds and log buildings you could customise yourself, and Garden Affairs supply some very smart garden offices, studios, log cabins, workshops and summerhouses, from their range or bespoke.
