Budget pallet Hobbit House

Among the entries for this year's Shed of the Year competition which have caught the Shedworking staff's eye is the rather impressive Hobbit House built and owned by marketing manager Julie Twydell in Bromley, Kent. It is largely built from reclaimed materials, including a bed base for the door. 

"I pretty much just made it up as I went along!," she say. "My neighbour helped me when I need another pair of hands and all in all the build took about four weekends - the only expense was the roof and the windows. Nothing is really straight, correct or perfect and that's what I love about it. I like its rustic charm! I didn't want to build anything that had mains power. It's more a place to kick back and get creative!

"The wall lights are solar-powered so that I can still work in there at night. During lockdown the shed has been the best thing for me. If I didn't have it, I'm not quite sure what I would have done instead. I can read in there, have a glass of wine, watch tv with the cinema screen, do craft and building projects. It's great!"
