The clients chose the colours for this lovely little children's playhouse, and I'm not sure they could have picked anything more suitable.
This deceptive shed has two rooms inside, one for the storage of the usual bits ad bobs, the second, a space for a running machine. \in oder to keep the areas separate, and to maximise storage space, a second 'hidden' door was put on the front of the shed.
Quite neat really.
I'm biased, but this one is a real beauty!
A synthetic slate roof was used, indistinguishable from the real thing, but lighter, meaning it's more practical for a garden shed.
Two small sheds, joined by a covered area under which the owners will put a bench.
Despite all that is happening in the world, life seems to struggle on in one way or another, and we have made some lovely sheds this summer, in fact, there's been no time, what with one thing and another to update the blog, so here is a sample of a few of this summer's creations.
It's rare that I revisit my sheds, but this week, when installing an additional shed for the same customer, I had chance to look around her original shed. I'm glad to say that it's looking even better than it did when it was brand new, the timber having mellowed nicely.
It's a fairly large step to go from building sheds to a garage for a Land Rover, but we think we've managed it quite well.
Next time maybe we'll make a full size one!
This useful garden store is now sitting proudly in a London front garden. The reclaimed slate roof makes it seem like it's been there for years, and perfectly compliments the Victorian house.
It just goes to show that sometimes less is more. This very simple, unpainted shed looks lovely sat in the top corner of it's Cotswold garden. The cedar shingle roof and high grade timber walls will mellow soon allowing the Carlisle Brass reeded door knob to stand out on an otherwise pretty blank canvas.
A customer in Goffs Oak wanted a woodland style shed for the 'secret garden' behind a wall at the end of their main garden. We both thought a cedar clad shed would blend seamlessly into the space available. The high level window in the gable end peeps above the garden wall, and the two windows to the main side give a stylish look, especially when painted a lovely dark blue. The beautiful rustic door looks super, and the bird box above finished the job off. The good news is that it won't be hidden behind a wall for much longer, the customer is taking it down so the shed can be seen from the house.
