I know what you mean, Brettski! The weathered look adds a certain charm! I rather like the idea of a "living roof" such as one planted with specialist mosses or sedums.

This gives some good advice and information.

Yor shed is very 'posh' Brettski, it is bound to mellow with time.Ours has been there for over 30 years, which is why it looks weathered It is actually OH's work shop, he makes (& flies) model radio control planes.
This is our 'proper' shed where the tools etc are compost bin to the left.

Love the sheds here

Kits your interesting choice of designer Sheds is great fun. Love the lighthouse effect one.

Kits your shed looks homely and old world charm, hiding amongst the climbing plants.

Brettski: That is a shed on a grand scale. I would consider it more like a wooden garage here in the UK. Well done for creating it all yourself, and it looks smart too.

Val: The sheds you have are interesting. One looked very formal as it looks although there is some serious gardening going on. The other looks homely, like a Waltons house on the hill. As you say it is used as an extra room for hubbies hobbies.

Love those sheds-I thought mine was quite "posh" till I saw those. Mine needs a jolly good clear out ready for the summer gardening, I can't wait to get started now!

Urlybird....you are soooo close to the truth.
That 10' x 12' shed is planned to serve a couple critical needs. First off, as shed are supposed to do, it will house maintenance utensils and various items to be stored at our development project. Secondly, as it is our only enclosed structure, it will also serve as a retreat from inclement weather; the cold, the heat, and whatever Mother Nature might dish out. So.....we gotta do what we can to make it somewhat habitable....right? Maybe some cabinets....a workbench.....a couple of chairs to sit down....a place to wash our hands off before lunch.....a porta-potti ....a portable camping stove to make the coffee. Stand back....I'm outta control!
