The garden shed is an icon of national identity, and holds a special place in the hearts of British men. Often described as a sanctuary from the outside world and the other half, a man's shed begins where a boy's bedroom leaves off, allowing him space for the prized objects and boyish dreams there is seldom room for inside the house. In this book, authors Gordon Thorburn and Gareth Jones delve into the sheds of British blokes to discover the personalities and passions hidden within. These sheds are home to workshops crammed with strange inventions, soda siphon collections, a reptile house, cinema and even a funeral directors. A must for every shed-lover, or anyone who has ever lost their partner at the end of the garden, this charming book celebrates the enduring appeal of a very British obsession, the shed.
