Bought this for a friend who has a cool shed. We originally saw this, battered to heck, on a coffee table in a garden centre, and loved it. The images in the book, and the stories of the people who made the sheds are great. The various locations and settings for the sheds is fascinating. I didn't read the whole book (as it's a gift), but read some of the copy in the garden centre, and thought the photography was lovely too.

This is a wonderful 'coffee table' book, and a really nice present for someone who has a cool shed. there are so many wonderful ideas in here.. And so many people with waaaaaay too much money or time on their hands :)

This book does not provide practical advice, layout plans, longshot photos of the interiors, or info about materials used or anything about suppliers and fitters. The photos are frustratingly uninformative with close ups of a partial window or the corner of a table. You have no idea as to how these shed interiors are laid out or how the owners solved storage and general living requirements.. If you are looking for a book to point you in the right direction for creating a shed of your own this book will not get you started. There is nothing practical or useful within. Same applies to "My Cool Campervan" by the same author.

The spaces in this book were ok but nothing mind blowing. Cover looked good and the title suggested it was going to have lots of really funky places in it but only a few as it happens.

What a gorgeous book showing the extraordinary range of hideaways that people have created for their own personal needs. If you ever feel that you need to get away from it all, either to work or just relax you'll find something in this book that appeals.
The photography is great and picks up on the quirky detail that makes these 'sheds' unique while the accompanying text personalises the buildings by telling you about their owners as well as giving information about the interiors and location.
This book would make a perfect gift and will inspire you to create your own cool shed.

An interesting insight into the world of sheds. A bit of shed envy on my part, I would like them all.

A great researched book with a varied collection of cool sheds - photos and write ups providing great inspiration and contributors come from an array of artist backgrounds well worth a read if your thinking about getting a humble shed or being a big creative.

Have just enjoyed an indulgent half hour with coffee, deckchair, English sunshine(!) and copy of 'my cool shed'.
The photography in this book is really quite exceptional, providing the reader with a feast of detail in every shot which is then complemented so very well by the author's personal 'style notes' and background to each 'hideaway'.
A brilliantly eclectic mix of sheds and locations, I found myself transported into moments of unique and delicious escapism at each page turn.
An absolute 'must buy' for anyone looking for inspiration to create their own space or who, like me, simply enjoys an excuse to ponder on abscondment from everyday life!

I have just received 'My Cool Shed' and it's up to the very high standard of Jane Field-Lewis' 2 previous books 'My Cool Campervan' and 'My Cool Caravan'. All have stunning photographs, amusing, informative text and great interiors design ideas. A perfect present to give or receive.

This is a nice book, however the title is rather misleading. There are remarkably few sheds in the book, and some of the buildings are quite large. If you are looking for a book which actually has innovative sheds as the focus, this definitely is not the book for you.
