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.
We received this photo on Friday from one of our customers who bought a shed last year, with the accompanying text,
"Hi, shed is looking a bit more home now, we love it!"
Always nice to hear our work is appreciated, and to see how they look as the garden wraps around them.
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.
........you'll spot this lovely cedar clad shed. At almost 4 metres square it certainly is imposing and being entirely clad in cedar will blend into it's surroundings very quickly. A much larger than average door means easy access for large lawn mowers and the like. Beautiful and practical.
This beautiful building is going to be a workshop in this lovely Winchester walled garden. The brief was to blend with the existing rather lovely house, which had an extremely well designed extension with a lot of lead detailing to the facade. We incorporated lead panels to the base of the front elevation of the shed, used a reclaimed front door and copied the style of the house windows. The end result is a pleasingly traditional looking shed which will last for many years to come.
We built this lovely looking shed with one wall almost entirely from toughened glass, separated by our trademark posts, to give a bright and light interior. This "airyness" was further enhanced by a skylight in the roof to the rear giving plenty of natural light all day long. This one will be used as a potting shed, but a summer house, home office or hobby room all spring to mind as alternate uses.
With the rise in home delivery of parcels, it is becoming important to offer a secure and dry place in which to store all the deliveries when you're out. This 'sentry box' store is dual purpose, and was designed to compliment this lovely cottage in the Lake District, complete with reclaimed slate roof.
