We asked you to show us a sheddie picture and tell us why you love your shed. Over 100 of you did just that, and here’s the winning entry, along with a few special mentions.
The winning photo in the competition is this fine entry from Clare, with her much-loved garden building. She loves her summerhouse because:
“...it's a haven to us all where we can play music, games, read, paint or have a coffee with friends. We all put so much work into it. It has electricity, with a little fridge and heater so we can use it all year round. It's the perfect place to escape to for a little peace and quiet.”
They’ve won the garden store, which will be winging its way to them as we write! Well done Clare, and thanks for taking part.
Of course, there were dozens of wonderful entries, and it was hard to choose a final winner. We have to give an honourable mention to some of the other entries. These guys win a Waltons ‘Shed load of tea’ mug:
Mark’s bespoke storage shed
Kev’s decked playhouse
Alasdair’s punky playhouse
Some entrants wanted to enter the patch of garden where they’d put a shed, rather than a picture of a shed. Here’s a couple of our favourites, who also win a Waltons mug:
This shed-ready space...
Phil’s ‘proposed site of shed’ deck
