Tony Rogers: Roman Temple - Shed of the Year winner

The Shedworking staff were very sorry to hear from Uncle Wilco of the death of Tony Rogers, the winner of the very first Shed of the Year in 2007 for his remarkable Roman Temple. It's still perhaps our favourite build and it sparked a huge new wave of interest in shedlife. Here's what he said about this iconic shed's origins:

I remember admiring a ruined temple one year at the Chelsea Flower show in a garden-stone display. Following on from my interest in all things Roman, I was standing at the kitchen window one day some time later when I casually suggested to my wife that the shed might look better if it was converted to a Roman Temple. She was not amused!
