Garden sheds are traditionally a man's thing looking after all their tools, garden equipment and valuables. In years gone by the man often would set up a chair in the shed and with a can of beer, a newspaper and maybe a radio to listen to would be free from the worries of the world.
At time as gone by ladies have also been taking over the garden shed, increasingly even having their own garden sheds for their own pursuits. Their thoughts (if I brave enough to say it) is if a man deserves a place of quiet and solitude then they do as well. Who am I to argue with that sentiment, certainly if it helps the sales of garden sheds.
Children who like to be like their dads (and mums) have looked down at the garden shed with wonderment and enviousness. They have seen their dads being masterful and in control of their world and they wish to make their parents proud of them. Dads being good dads realise this and are often buying a small garden shed for their children. Often giving them a little piece of the garden as well so they can plant some flowers or vegetables so they can appreciate the garden.
To meet this demands many forward looking garden shed companies such as 1st Choice Leisure Buildings have a purpose built range of garden playhouses, play dens and wendy houses. In essence these are miniature garden sheds designed to appeal to the younger members of the family.
Recently it was reported that a playhouse for a young boy was made from a garden shed by adapting the shed in a military style. This clearly appeals to the young man around the home. Dylan, a four year boy, from Magor is Wales was clearly delighted with his new building as the styling makes it look like an army base.
Prior to the shed being converted to an army style building this building was used as a wendy house and enjoyed by his elder sisters. However, with the addition of camouflage paint as well as netting on the veranda Dylan can enjoy his time out in the garden.
The idea to change the wendy house was because the playhouse had become a little shabby and with young Dylan wanting something just for him the idea evolved to convert the little garden building..
Rob, Dylan's father threw a few ideas about, including trying to make it look like the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars, before he decided on the army themed idea. Another obstacle in transforming the shed to the Millennium Falcon was the lack of timber and the fact that the thrusters would have been hard to come by.
In the end the army style was opted for with Dylan loving his new creation. His dad was so pleased with the end result he entered the shed in the Shed of the Year. This just goes to show what a little thought can do creating a great play building for his son to use his imagination rather than relying on the latest computer game.
