1 in 10 planning to build a shed this Easter

According to Nationwide Building Society nearly half of Brits are planning to spend at least some time this Easter doing DIY. And while 52% are painting/decorating and nearly four in ten are landscaping the garden or doing something to the fence, lawn or patio, a big 9% (ok, nearly 1 in 10) say they'll be putting up a shed or outhouse.

Graham Pilkington, Divisional Director Banking, Insurance and Investments at Nationwide said: "Easter has traditionally been a favourite time for DIYing, and this year is no different with over half of us planning to break out the paint brushes and filler. The number of people moving house over the last few years has declined, so the increase in the number and size of personal loans suggests that homeowners are spending more to maintain and upgrade their current property rather than moving on." -------------------------------------------------------------------------
