I get to see some lovely gardens in the course of my work, and this Nottinghamshire garden was certainly no exception. The sheds provides an attractive backdrop to this part of the garden, and helps create a barrier between the road and the garden.
This pretty little shed is set in a hidden garden, set behind the main garden of this former mill building in a coastal North Devon village. The Georgian style 9 pane window gives a traditional look that sits well with the stone walling that will surround it.
A lovely, traditionally styled shed with a jolly pink colour to brighten up these gloomy winter days. There are a pair of opening windows and patterned barge boards to complete the look. Set in a Victorian walled garden, this lovely shed will surely blend in once the garden renovations are complete.
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!
