Year of the Shed says the Telegraph

Elspeth Thompson writing in the Telegraph describes 2007 as the "Year of the Shed", ahead even of the sustainability theme at this year's RHS Chelsea and Hampton Court Flower shows. She does a runthrough of the main shedlike structures on display at the shows' show gardens but since it's Shepherd's Hut Tuesday, let's concentrate on what she says about today's topic.
"And who could forget the charming corrugated iron shepherd's hut in the Daily Mail Darling Buds of May pavilion? I first saw a shepherd's hut used as a shed at Sticky Wicket, Pam Lewis's beautiful garden near Dorchester, Dorset, and have hankered after one ever since, so it was sobering to learn that restored huts can fetch upwards of £5,000 and reproduction ones even more (The Shepherd's Hut Company)."
