Get your votes in for Shed of the Year!

This year’s shortlist has been revealed, and there’s still time to show your support.

For centuries, the shed has served as a refuge from the modern world. A place to tinker about, reflect with a cuppa, or something stronger. Most gardens have one for storage, but in recent years some people have taken sheds to the next level.

Since 2007, Shed of the Year has celebrated the extra effort shed owners have made to create an extension of the home. There are six categories in total and the most impressive builds are put to a public vote.

The Shed of the Year categories:

  • Lockdown
  • Pub/ Entertainment
  • Nature’s Haven
  • Cabin / Summerhouse
  • Budget
  • Unexpected / Unique

This year the finalists include, a gothic-inspired castle, an inventor’s workshop, and the world’s first shed to give free smallpox vaccinations.

There is also a pub built by father-and-son duo, James and Andrew Tittenson.

Votes are open for each individual category, and the winners of each category will go head-to-head in the final round.

Previous winners have included, a pirate themed cabin, a beehive with a rooftop vegetable garden, and a Roman temple.

Voting for this years competition closes July 15th 2022, and the winner will receive £1,000, a plaque, and £100 of Cuprinol vouchers.

You can vote, view this year’s shortlist, and the previous winners on the Shed of the Year website.
