A few shed links to help you on your way there's so much well.... stuff on the internet its difficult to know where to start. I have selected a few sites that I really like on Sheds (of course!), Gardens and DIY.
I hope that you find them useful.
This is a classic site about garden sheds. Run by Uncle Wilco, the organiser of the UK's National Shed Week and Shed of The Year competition, you are encouraged to 'share your shed'. When you have finished your shed build remember to take a photo of the outside and inside of the shed for it to be entered in next years Shed of the Year competition. The competition is open to international entrants for the first time in 2009 - so go on 'show us your shed'.
This site run by the journalist and writer, Alex Johnson, is updated daily with shed news and comment. Alex collates the information from his wide contacts and has many stunning pictures of sheds of all types, styles and uses. Shedworking also focuses on the needs of those running businesses from their sheds.
At times it can be difficult to spot the difference between a shed and a 'Tiny House'. If anything I would say that Tiny Houses are a little more refined than the average shed. Either way I am sure you will enjoy a visit to Michael Janzens site he has a great view on life as well as shed building!
Sheds and Gardens go together like peas and carrots or strawberries and cream. Gardening is such a big topic and can be covered in so many different ways that I'm choosing a few sites that give great advice from several different angles the first of these is:
Alfred and Julia Stewart's site has detailed information on flowers, plants, pests, gardening advice and tips for your landscape, garden supplies and resources, seeds, bulbs, practical hands-on advice and public gardens.
This site is a great resource for anyone planning a green shed roof. Selecting drought resistant plants is important for creating a beautiful and low maintenance green roof shed.
Renate Hering-Shepherd has a first class honours degree from the Chelsea College of Art and Design. She is now creating a great site which may be of use when it comes around to decorating your shed. I have suggested a joint venture site "dream-shed-decorating.com"; however it may take a while for me to convince Renate that this is a good idea!
They say that a well constructed shed can add 5% to the value of your home. I believe that Colm Dillon at realestatedevelopmentcoach.com with his billion dollar development portfolio does quite a bit better than that! Take a look to see if you could be the next Donald Trump.
