Entries for #shedoftheyear 2021
Some great new entries for this year, including
A whole town of sheds - built by John Fitzgerald
This has been a Covid Lockdown Project and we built it specifically for our new Granddaughter and ourselves… We ar an events company, so we have been off work for over a year, but we had accumulated loads of “Stuff” from events and decided to see if we could do this concept on a zero budget and only using recyclable materials, stuff we had and old materials etc….it is part of a larger playground and outdoor garden, but this will be the centrepiece in relation to chill out, indoor play, Tea Room, arts and crafts and anything else that she and her new Brother/Sister (on the way) decide to do with it.

The Playhouse - "Built for Grand daughter during lockdown. Design was meant to be a mix of styles from log cabin to tin roof shed. All joins up to a multi activity experience " Lockdown - Limerick #shedoftheyear https://t.co/VSZS6qNQjh https://t.co/Wum0xmzlNj
Blinding Sheds
So we have 4 #PeakyBlinders inspired sheds added for #shedoftheyear 3 are from Merseyside what’s that about? I thought the show was set in Birmingham?
Some may Say - #NOTASHED but it’s used as a shed/studio and I think it’s great.

I love it when previous entrants add new photos especially interesting but exciting sheds like this!
I think every shed should have a dodgem parked outside, what do you think @CartersFair

Hey, friends, there's a ginormous pile of collapsed boxes in the way of one bookcase/ the extending of my desk, one box to go back to the house, and electrics/blinds to come, but: library shed! https://t.co/957CjYKZ5U
More musical sheddies - Cockney singers Chas and Dave - loved their shed

Outside Chas's garden shed 1978. Many C&D songs were written in this shed. https://t.co/KmkYgrhHxl
Your Builds
If you are starting a shed build in your garden, could be storage, office, pub, workshop & definitely if it’s a folly, then let me know as I would like to follow the progress and pass it onto the sheddies who are maybe looking to do the same.
