We love watching George Clarke Amazing Spaces on Channel 4 and more recently Shed of The Year. We follow all of the guys behind the scenes of Amazing Spaces and we were thrilled to hear that Shed of The Year competition had been picked up by Plum pictures and commissioned by Channel 4 with Geirge Clarke heading up the show. Not many people will appreciate that Shed of The Year was founded by just one chap in Cardiff, called Andrew Wilcox or Uncle Wilco as he is more commonly known. (You can follow him on Twitter – @UncleWilco)
It’s fantastic to see what people create in their back gardens. There is something extra special about creating a personal retreat in your garden, often a tranquil space to work or play that you just couldn’t create in a room in the house. This years winner is no exception. Joel Bird from London won the competition with his eco shed. A rustic and charming bespoke garden room with an allotment on the roof! Joel is an artist and uses his garden roof as a studio to produce his work and ultimately make his money. Follow Joel on twitter – @MrJoelBird.
Joe’s winning shed is pictured on this blog but take a moment to check out the official Shed of The Year blog and Joel’s winning shed – http://www.shedblog.co.uk/2014/08/07/2014-shed-year-winner-revealed/
