The humble garden shed is a very popular British obsession and is used for a massive amount of different purposes. Traditionally the shed is there for the storage of garden tools, bikes, barbecues, garden furniture etc but is quite often used for a home workshop where the house holder can spend time beavering away either making things for the house or by following their hobby.
Having a separate space away from the house allows anything you are working on to be left on the side in the shed ready for when you come directly back to it. You can also get a little bit of peace and quiet and some ‘me’ time which we all need in these stressful times. Many people share their sheds with others like minded people and they can bond over a model train, or some form of electronic hobbies. They can talk about the pros and cons of the various ways of looking at their hobbies. My wife has a garden potting apex shed which she uses to make greeting cards and quite often has friends down there so they can share their hobby.
Besides these sort of uses the garden shed can reign supreme as a garden office where the basics of your home business can take place. Very useful where you need a little space away from the house for your paperwork and maybe answering a phone. It does get to be a little more involved if you employ people as planning permission is likely to be required also you need to be aware of any Health and Safety issues because you do not want to get sued – do you?
Pauline Barnett, the pioneering fundraiser, who lived in West Bromwich actually set up one of the town’s first charity sheds in her timber garden shed over 30 years ago. She also believed that the garden shed was for more than just storing lawn mowers and other garden equipment. And over a period of 20 years she was able to raise £65,000 from her garden shed directly for the Williams Syndrome Foundation by selling second hand clothes from this resourceful garden building.
It was an novelty for a shed to be used like this and was called ‘The Shed Store’ – surprisingly – and attracted visitors from a great distance, Mrs Barnett’s daughter, Sue, said that people used to come from miles around and, in fact, one woman used to come over from Ireland with an empty suit case just to visit The Shed Store and fill it with bargains.
