Tool shed inspired by Studio Ghibli film

Here's an incredible timber build by Daniele de Paola which I would suggest will be a hot contender for the upcoming annual Shed of the Year competition (sponsors Cuprinol will be delighted too that the walls are painted with its White Daisy range).

Built in his Hertfordshire garden (so not too far from Shedworking HQ), it is a homage to the multi-awardwinning animated film My Neighbour Totoro from Studio Ghibli which follows the story of two young sisters in Japan and their discovery of friendly forest spirits. The shed is a scale replica of the house which features in the film and is used to house garden tools, although it also features an attractive window to allow inconspicuous observation of wildlife in the field which backs onto the garden.

The video below is a charming look at how it was made.
