Five celebrity shed fans have been commissioned to create their ultimate sheds - and now they're going up for auction to the British public.
All proceeds from the auction will be donated to a variety of charities including Age UK, The Yorkshire Sculpture Park, The Minerva Centre and The Marine Conservation Society.
The shed fans - or 'sheddies', as they're referred to - are comedian Vic Reeves, presenter Sarah Beeny, DJ Christian O’Connell, as well as authors Joanne Harris and Alex Johnson. One of the most famous sheddies was Roald Dahl, who gained inspiration from the solitude of his shed to pen his novels.
The competition has been organised by wood-care company Cuprinol, who challenged the celebrities to design and paint their perfect shed, using a range of the company's colours.
The one-of-a-kind outhouses took over a month to make, and saw the celebrities working with a team of top artists and carpenters to help make their vision come to life. The sheds then went on display for free to the public, in a places of natural beauty.
The news of the competition came as research recently revealed that the average British shed owner spends five months in their shed over their lifetime, and 40 per cent of those polled admitted that they use their shed as an extension of their Home.
The competition will run until 30.08.12., check out Cuprinol's facebook for more information.
