This imposing garden building sits high on a hill overlooking the wonderful Georgian city of Bath. The challenge here (apart from the 70 steps from trailer to site) was the roof, since the shed sits below the house and garden deck. This meant the appearance from above was more than usually important. The brief was a shed as low as possible, with a slate roof, and flat roofs and slate are not happy bed fellows. We solved this by putting a durable waterproof roof under the purely decorative slate one. Job done, poshly!
This extremely practical shed has a multitude of roles, it has to be attractive, durable and adaptable. An unusual feature is the fold away work bench to the front which allows the lucky owner to work outside. When stowed the bench becomes a shelf, enabling the front to be brightened up with a few flower pots or the like. To the rear is every child's dream, a garage for their electric ride on toy Land Rover. Finished in tantalised timber with a cedar shingle roof this shed will soon look quite at home in the corner of this lovely informal garden.
