Sheds of the Year


West Wing - Kevin Herbert from Berkshire

A family-friendly labour of love, built over eight years, The West Wing has three separate sections including a spacious loft, which as an area to sleep and wind down, a large workshop space for 'shedworking' and a secret bookcase that reveals a hidden room for the kids to enjoy.

An eco-friendly shed, made from 90% recycled material, this quirky getaway at the bottom of the garden took out the top honour in a nail biting season finale.
