Choosing a shed - Anglo Igloo

Perhaps you have a mug of coffee in your shed. Maybe a sandwich. But how about a barbeque? What you need is The Anglo Igloo, created by Richard and Sara Whittall who were inspired by a trip to the Arctic Circle in their motorhome. As they quite rightly say: “Whatever the weather or time of year, the Anglo Igloo creates a unique ‘inside outside’ atmosphere.”

The Deluxe model, built from their Hampshire workshop, is individually handcrafted from weather treated pine, coloured to the client’s spec. It has two opening windows built into the side walls and a skylight above a secure locking door. Inside there’s plenty of room to work not to mention seating for 15 people on luxury fitted cushions around the central Ultimate Barbeque, with three fully adjustable rotating grill plates. It has a static chimney hood to draw the smoke away from the fire and a roof finished in colourful felt roof tiles, not to mention a telescopic chimney.

Normal optional extras on a garden office shed usually include extra windows or desks. If you buy an Anglo Igloo you could also choose a Lazy Bones Spit Roaster, seats which can be converted into beds, and a fridge. There is also an Anglo Inglet option, an annexe building with internal locking doors connecting to the Igloo as well as a door giving access to the garden. Plus benches which turn into a bed platform.

Anglo Igloo also appeared on BBC's excellent Working Lunch programme recently and you can see them and find out more about their business here.
