Like some of the best sheds, this one has evolved rather than being built in one go, or as Chris puts it, "This shed was obviously lovingly made from odds and ends and over the years she has had several more layers attached to her as she has slowly mellowed into her environment." I was delighted to hear that a Freecycler had supplied a cottage-style latch door for this old lady, and Chris, who only took the shed over last year along with his plot, has plans for "a patio area, pergola, climbing roses and grape vine" too!
I like this shed. It's an allotment building with a history, maybe a chequered past - a shed with a bit of an attitude, some chutzpah - the corrugated roof jutting out over the doorway says as much. Its narrowness and depth brought to mind the shotgun houses of New Orleans, while the cottage-style door screams shabby chic - eat your heart out Cath Kidson. It definitely deserves an 8 out of 10.
