Where do the most imaginative shedworkers live?

According to a new YouGov poll, shed owners in the South East of England are the most innovative when it comes to using their shedlike atmospheres.Around 9% of people from the South East said they would convert their sheds into mini gyms, one in twelve would use theirs as a creative area for hobbies, while 4% would use it as a space for practicing music. One in twenty would use it as a private space to escape for a while and 30% would use it as storage of non garden items.

The same poll revealed that shedowners aren't good at maintaining their garden sheds despite using them to store expensive equipment. The poll, commissioned by waterproofing manufacturer Marley Waterproofing, found that despite a high proportion of people keeping expensive garden tools in their sheds, as few as one in five people consider repairs a priority.
