Garden shed project underway

I'm pleased to report that our garden shed project is finally underway. We had to overhaul our entire back yard during renovation. My dream was to create a parking space and turnaround in the back so we could enter the house through the mud room door. That meant leveling our 1920s garage. We never parked in it, but it housed all of our crap stuff. Gone. I desperately need a place to put our stuff, as well as a cooler for flowers (and adult beverages).

Our landscape architect drew an 8x10 shed into the plans with a blue stone walkway, plantings and a pergola. Cocktails will be served on the patio area under the pergola. I'm thinking it will be a girl's retreat. No boys allowed. Here it is.

I fell in love with this garden retreat that was inspired by Virginia Woolf's garden room at Monk's House. Based out of the UK, Scotts of Thrapston carries the kit for this shed along with many others. Why is it that the UK and Canada have better products than we do here in the States?

This Boarder Oak bespoke shed is adorable. Boarder Oak is an award-winning, family-run business in the UK, of course.

Other fab garden shed images I've been collecting. None are suitable for our space. But, who cares. I love them! 

Stylish Sheds and Elegant Hideaways

Love the Gothic windows. We do plan to use reclaimed doors and windows.

From a different angle. Amazing how light can alter the look of things.

Cutest little garden shed/studio made from all recycled doors, windows, trim.

white garden shed - I will have this in a bigger version by next year.  (Of course, mine will have a secret satellite dish that only I know about and can watch HGTV and the Weather  Channel all I want without interuption)

Do any of these speak to you? I will keep you posted on our progress.
