Feedback: Freindly and patient advice and fairly quick responces to questions. Overall I was very satisfied with the service I received. Looks good and was quickly errected. Only when sun came out several days later could I spot that the back wall had a slight gap at the top but nothing major. Overall I am very satisfied with the service and product.
Response: Thanks for your feedback. It's good that you are satisfied with your new shed. Pleased we were able to offer you advice in choosing the building to suit you. Regards Robin
Garden sheds are extremely versatile buildings and are used for a vast amount of uses. Normally for storage or as garden workshops and many are used for hobbies or craft rooms. It's even been the case that big sheds have been converted into pubs so their owners can share some quality time with their friends and 'chew the cud' so to speak.
Another garden shed was called into use as a practice room for the Scottish group, The Streams, and they have done so well they now play at King Tut's Wah Wah Hut where their appearances are sold out. In the beginning they were learning their craft in this shed with one of their favourite songs being White Stripes songs just to practice. They never really expected their career to take off in this way. Besides learning the guitar, they had a keyboard which was used a drum machine in the early days. They must have had very good neighbours.
Another novel use for a garden shed was in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, where a play was being performed in people's garden sheds. Marcus Moore and Jo Boulsfield performed their two man play about getting old called, Still Kicking, with people being able to enjoy this in a very unusual location. This play was first performed at the Everyman theatre's studio before they started touring garden sheds.
Marcus said that as the shed is a place away from the house, away from the hubble and bustle of daily life and where people can contemplate the world this makes it a great location and is one of the main attractions of their shows. Three Cheltenham garden shed owners were happy to have this play performed for them
The summerhouse of Matthew Holland's in Cheltenham was one of the locations and he said that he was excited to be working with Cheltenham's art scene in this unusual way. Roses Theatre Bar, who also was hosting this play, described Still Kicking as an amusing look of life after turning 60. Beware the play contains 'song, sex and surprise'
Well after being in the garden shed business for over 33 years I was certainly surprised that a garden shed could be used in this way. However I'm sure there are many other uses for these wonderful British garden buildings. If you know of any novel uses for garden sheds or you are using your big shed for such strange use please let us know. You may give other people some inspiration and they may become the next big band or the latest play to hit the West End.
