National Shed Week: The Material Poll

Today's poll asks the question, is there more to shedworking than a timber frame? Do you prefer metal? Or fancy a glass shed? Maybe plastic works for you? Make your vote count in the poll at the top of the right hand column and please do add your comments below explaining your choice. 


  1. Ack! I went with 'wood' though I really wanted 'cob'

  2. You're absolutely right. Sadly I can't change the poll now since it's underway but I'll include your vote - and others for cob - in the final reckoning.

    I tried several materials in the past but for me nothing feels, looks and smells as nice as wood.

    Perhaps more interesting was the reconstruction of a Curtis stage show from 1911, The Indian Picture Opera (2006).

    A contemporary version of it was released on DVD and can be searched on Amazon.

    Original music was recreated, and combined with 36 minutes of E.S. Curtis narration. The production reveals Curtis's interpretation and demeanor from the era.

    It's thought provoking, and discussion provoking.
