Some of the recent entries to this year’s competition.
The Plotting Shed - Unexpected/Unique - "It is a hand built log cabin using logs from local woods 3 miles from home it is used as a home office, writing and chill out room." Cornwall #shedoftheyear owned by Angela King
The Bearcroft Arms - Pub/Entertainment -"I was furloughed for months during lockdown, only so much daytime TV I could watch, and with the pubs being closed, I decided to build my own! "

Simple But Effective -
"I needed a garden shed. We went out to look at pre-made sheds. And was disappointed on quality and my budget was not large, So I made my own,"
#shedoftheyear owned by Keith Ellis
The Stop's Gone - Pub/Entertainment - "
The Stop's Gone is a reference to my time in the London fire Brigade. "The Stop" was a message sent to control at the end of every incident. The Gone means that the message had been transmitted. When you retire, the same term is often applied as it is finally all over. The pub was completed just in time for my retirement.
What makes it special ? No clocks are allowed in the pub ! Leads to long, relaxed sessions of joy as no one is in a rush. "

Other shed stuff
The ten best sheds in the world ever!
OK according to me - Uncle Wilco - Head Sheddie and founder of Shed of the year, so yep it's my own view (so I'm biased!), but we have them all from workshops, Bars, Railway sheds, Writing sheds to the very first winner in 2007 - The Roman Temple and a lot of British eccentricity So here are some of my favourite sheds over the past 17 years of running shedoftheyear - well, 10 of them - I love all the sheds, so it was very difficult to get it down to ten :) So, In no particular order.
Ai Sheds made out of bubbles.
