Entries for the 2021 Cuprinol Shed of the Year close on April 12. A number of sheds have already caught the judges’ eyes and are said to be rising to the top of the pecking order.
For the second year in a row the competition will include a lockdown category.
Competition founder Andrew Wilcox said: “The past 12 months have been among the most challenging ever for many of us, and it’s been fascinating to see how that has spurred sheddies on to ever more creative heights.
“With just a matter of weeks now until the deadline, we’d urge anyone thinking of entering to get their skates on.”
Geraint Nicholas from Essex built a yoga cabin for his wife.
The yoga shed also acts as a cinema and party room, with a lighting setup to match.
Adam Bell from South Yorkshire does woodwork in his cabin, which also features a whiskey cabinet.
Meanwhile, Diane Goring from Newport, uses her shed to pursue arts and crafts when she is not working for the NHS as a nurse consultant.
Marianne Shillingford, creative director at Cuprinol, said: “Our garden sheds are more than just a place to put our tools, they are a wonderful creative outlet for an individual’s unique artistic vision.
