    I'm sans shed at the moment, had 4 at the last house including a 12 x 18' bohemoth what I made. I have plans for more sheddery but all in good time.
     
  2. I have four sheds, two at home and two at allotment, each of them has been moved at least twice, some many more times. I'm building the next one on wheels.

    When I say 'mine' they're my wife's really :smile:

    My Dad, who got a workshop in the basement as part of the granny flat, took over my shed as a second workshop!

    I converted my front room, with big bay window, into my shed/workshop, and then did likewise with the front room of the basement. We now have two 'man rooms' each!:thumbsup:

    I will be converting one of the guest rooms into a design studio for Arch so she gets a 'shed' too.

    My wife is actively encouraging me to buy another shed purely for the bikes :she's a keeper :biggrin:

    Nice one lads ^_^^_^. In reality the house and the shed should not be combined, the place for the shed is at the bottom of the garden, and it should be the place for storing the stuff you will never use again, your bikes, your gardening stuff and of course it should be your retreat and your place to fettle, combining house and shed has drawbacks and should only be done by those that live alone. ^_^

    My garden is smaller then some of the rooms in the house so space for a wooden shed. Even my 'shed' is a lean to in the side passage of the side of the house.

    There are no drawbacks to an in house shed if one has keys to the doors though!

    Don't tell Mrs A. but my barn conversion is my shed! Unfortunately that could change as she has been measuring up for curtains and buying stuff like that :angry:

    Never mind, I shall take over the 50m2 garage, already it is well insulated and has a fridge, a kettle and a sink. Two bikes are hung neatly on the wall with space for more. I think she'd like to use it for the car but I tell her there is no room.

    Strategy may be to periodically put the car in as SWMBO may get ideas on a conversion sirrah.

    I've never had a 'proper' shed due to being a nomad and never being settled down long enough to invest the time and effort in building/buying one.

    But I dream of the day when I have what I want (and I know what I want: that feeling has been inside me since falling in love with my grandad's sheds when I was a nipper, many years ago).

    Found this site on the link slowmotion put up: http://myshedplanselite.net/

    I almost can't wait getting old to enjoy my shed somewhere. :smile:

    Yes, even got the Beau Brummels LP of the same name! Owen Bradley was a bad man though as he was anti steel and fiddle, the cad.

    Sheds are just places spiders get together to plan there world domination. I say end the spider threat and destroy all sheds.

    One day you will go in and wake up straped to the cealiing (and not in a good way) being sucked to death.
