A wide variety of garden sheds and workshops play an important role in thousands of British gardens. They’re used as storage space, chillout areas, and even offices. Some shed enthusiasts take their love and use of sheds to the next level. They’re affectionately referred to as “Sheddies”.
Websites and blogs run by Sheddies can be found across the internet; they’re often filled with photos, facts and anecdotal tales about shed-based activities, custom sheds and the variety of functions that these useful garden buildings can be used for.
