Shed Box of Delights: The Grand Designs Shed Project

Waltons and Grand Designs Live have been running a transformative shed competition at Grand Designs Live this year to test five designers' skills at furnishing a 10ft x 8ft Tradesman Storage Shed. The winner was Rebecca Jones’ reading snug pictured above. Here's what Kevin said to Waltons:
Storage is important, but I think what The Grand Shed Project shows is that you can use even the humblest of spaces. I think it’s important not to be too plugged in and a shed is a place to unplug. All the contents of the sheds are so different, it’s like looking into different worlds, expressing both the imagination and desires of the designers. But it also teaches you that the shed should be a place for the imagination, not for storing tins of paint, but for retreating to or from the world in order to pursue a hobby, or mix a cocktail or have a sleep.
Shedworking's favourite was the 'Bringing the outdoors in' shed by Liam Sapsford, pictured below.

You can see the other sheds - a South Miami Beach inspired cocktail shed, boutique guest bedroom shed, and a crafter's haven - at Walton's blog.
