On one of the lifestyle daytime tv shows I caught recently, there was a couple who were supposed to be downsizing from a 5 bedroomed detached house down to a medium sized house or bungalow. The discusions at the programme outset were clearly based on the words down and sizing. However, every time the host […]Continue reading . . . The Tale Of The Shed And The Picky Purchasers
A family day out the other week took in a heritage property of some note. It had been at the top of the ‘must do this Spring’ list for the last two or three springs and at last we were there. I had regularly visited this place many years ago when many of the artefacts […]Continue reading . . . Cherishing A Heritage Sheds For Living Theme
Oh how I really need to get into my garage and note everything lining the walls, the floor, every cabinet and even off the ceiling. It’s true about having so much space but you always fill it. I know that getting to gips with the amount of stuff that has found its way into the […]Continue reading . . . A Shed Could Be The Bringer of Calm
I have recently become very friendly with a lady in our walking group – it’s one of those friendships that you can pick up and leave off as time permits. In the months since I joined in this healthy walking m’larky, I’ve chatted to other participants and then this one lady asked me about a […]Continue reading . . . A Shed Can Be Designer Heaven
On a recent trip to an ancient relative’s house, there was an urgent need to clear the place and make good for renting as the relative had recently been installed in a nearby care home – with horrifying fees to be paid each month. The idea was to simply strip each room one at a […]Continue reading . . . A Shed Full Of Life And Memories

Living Her Dream With A Shed By Design

When you moved into that gorgeous new house all those years ago, just the two of you, it probably seemed as though you had acres of room each. Then along came the children and by heck, it suddenly became a scramble to […]Continue reading . . . A Shed Is Not Just For Gardening – It’s For Life!
For the short month of December – if you take out all the Christmas activities, it is a very short month indeed. There is very little connected with day to day living that goes on at the moment. The children are all getting frantic about the imminent arrival of Santa, or Mrs. Santa if we […]Continue reading . . . Time To Revaluate The Outdoor Space
There is something truly magical about the approach to the Christmas period. After all the fuss and bother of school holidays, the fact of the matter is that summer has gone, autumn has whizzed in and been blown straight out again with the sudden and unexpectedly arrival of a gusty and wet winter. Now is […]Continue reading . . . Where Would Mrs Santa Be Without Her She-Shed?
One of the most challenging things a family has to achieve these days is keeping a controlling hand on all the junk that gradually takes over all the spare living space a house can offer. The garage, once the pride and joy of the man of the house, with his Rover or Humber proudly residing […]Continue reading . . . When The Garage Has Been Taken Over And A Shed Is The Way Forward
