I developed an appreciation of sheds when I had to downsize from a spacious metal shed to a more compact wooden one. We needed the extra space in the backyard so the change had to be made. Although I didn’t have enough room to do all I did before, I packed as much as I could into the new shed and was pleased with the result.
It was used for so much: small woodwork projects on the worktop I’d made; winter housing for a pair of elderly ferrets we inherited who gave us so much fun and enjoyment; storing garden furniture, hand tools, wood oddments, seeds and pots, a multi-purpose ladder and a pair of step-ladders, together with all the usual detritus of an afternoon’s gardening session.
Although I never went to the extreme of installing an old armchair with cooler, wine and a few beers, there have been many times when the quiet of the place, together with the smell of wood resin, turpentine, and potting compost lured me in to mull over problems that needed thinking through, with the help of a mug of hot coffee.
Even when it was chucking down with rain, there was a certain satisfaction to being undercover in that shed. And it’s not just a ‘man thing’ either. A few lady friends who use their sheds for craft-work and as an artist’s studio would say something similar.
Your backyard shed is your own domain, your castle, your bolthole. Not just a storage place or workshop. It’s somewhere you can blot out everything else, de-stress if you need to, have some quiet time, work on a project, relax and potter!!
