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.
Well, just one actually, Farrow and Ball 'Downpipe'.
This grandiose shed was designed to match the rather grand house it sits beside, from it's decorative pillars and a large Georgian style window to the reeded beehive style door knob. The owner wanted to get involved, so painted it himself, a super job.
There is an oak bench to go beneath the window, so the owners can sit under the shed's verandah and admire the view, whatever the weather.
This beautiful classic shed has vertically mounted tongue and groove cladding coupled to a galvanised roof, giving it a traditional feel. The customer wanted to add contemporary look so we painted the main body dark grey whilst choosing a lovely blue for the windows, door and window boxes.
Whilst we bask in the glorious English summer weather it is hard to believe that winter will once again be upon us in a few months.
Get ready now and get your log store ordered, just like this customer near Gloucester has!
This beautiful shed is going to form the focal point of part of a wonderful garden under construction, which is undoubtedly going to look fantastic as the paving is laid and the planting matures. The windows match those found in the main house, with the door being the same as those inside the house. All in all the shed really suits it's surroundings, and the steep pitch roof gives it a grandiose look.
This pretty little shed has just been delivered to Somerset, and fulfils a dual role, somewhere to store garden furniture, as well as a log store for the fire pit. We added ventilation to the shed to allow the logs to continue to season without a buildup of moisture inside, a reclaimed cast iron vent completes the job!
The shelf on the gable end is somewhere to rest a glass of something whilst enjoying a BBQ on the deck.
This beautiful little shed sits in the immaculately kept garden of a wonderful Georgian house overlooking the city of Bath. The customer wanted a traditional shed that would blend into it's surroundings, yet provide sturdy and practical storage. The shed is decked out internally with hanging hooks and shelves to maximise the space available.
Vertically mounted tongue and groove cladding and a 12 pane Georgian style window mean this shed could have been made 150 years ago.
One more delighted customer, and hopefully the birds will move into the bird box above the door next spring.
