Fancy your very own girl shed or man cave? Jo Ridout can help you with that
The Nottingham Post has teamed up with The Halifax and Gem 106 to find out what home means to the people of Nottinghamshire and why we love living here. We'll be celebrating the special places in people's lives and sharing those stories of home with #HalifaxLoveYourHome. Every week between now and Sunday 24 June 2018, one lucky person will be chosen by the judges to win £500 for sending in the best story.
When you’re thinking about your home, you should include the outside space in your plans.
Call it a man cave or a she-shed, you can make it totally your own.
Super sheds these days are more likely to have wifi and luxurious sofas than be a dumping ground for whatever you don’t want in the house. These are serious spaces where you can flex your interior design muscle and put your own creative stamp on it.
Here are some ideas on how to transform yours into an effective room, whatever you want to use it for - just like Tim Ball from Keyworth who's set the bar really high with his creation. You can read his story below.
If life is chaotic and you need a space to call your own, then it's time to claim a shed for yourself.
If you've inherited a shed with your new home that looks like it's been there for many years, it might not even be watertight.
So don't forget to check that and its stability – you don't want your shed to take off with the first gust of wind with all your Beyonce memorabilia or football programmes you inherited. Limited only by your imagination, and possibly budget, this shed is calling out to be saved from storing just spiders (unless that’s your thing of course!) and rusting spades – it needs to be transformed into your personal space and made the centrepiece of your garden.
It’s also the perfect place to relax, indulge your obsession or be totally creative.
You could dedicate it to your favourite team, making it the best place to watch the match uninterrupted – and you get to ban away fans!
It's your shed, it's your space, so you decide and you make the rules. READ MORE
