Sheds, Bunkies, Tiny Houses, Workshops – I Love Them All
Years ago I started a blog feature called The Garden Shed Hall of Fame because I had shed envy. I had a small garden without a shed and envied all the beautiful sheds I would see on garden tours. Besides providing much-needed storage, sheds can add wonderful character to a garden.
For fun, I started asking blog readers to share photos of their sheds, which you will see here along with shed photos I have taken while visiting other gardens.
Ironcially, I actually have a shed of my own now —but it’s not very nice to look at and dearly needs a makeover, which I hope to do before too long.
I hope you enjoy this collection of favourite sheds—there’s every style from rustic and more traditional, to some more modern looking designs, including one with a living, succulent roof.
If you are going to build your own shed, this should help determine which type you would like in your garden.
If you would like a book on great garden sheds, I highly recommend Stylish Sheds and Elegant Hideaways: Big Ideas for Small Backyard Destinations by Debra Prinzing.

This next one is my shed – you can see how I gave it a makeover and painted the vinyl siding here.
Need Building Plans for a Shed?
Most garden sheds are variations on just a few classic designs. You can find plans (free or paid) online, your local library, and bookshops.
Living roofs are not such a new invention:
I hope you found some ideas for your garden.
