Shed of the Year

Part of the Amazing Spaces series, Shed Of The Year has become a highly popular challenge for everyone with an interest in creating extraordinary sheds with impressive ingenuity and imagination.

There are eight categories to be shown over four weekly episodes: Unique and Historic, Eco and Unexpected, Pub and Workshop, Budget and Summerhouse.

'Sheddies' from all over the country will be showing off their spectacular designs, some weird, others wacky but mostly wonderful creations from enthusiasts who have taken one step beyond the traditional idea of a garden shed.

The shortlist includes a motorised shed, shed village, a giant teapot and many others variously described as an architectural wonder or stunningly beautiful. One even includes live crocodiles.

With entries referencing the wild west to Star Wars, a haunted chapel to a Anglo-Saxon longhouse, there'll be plenty of inspiration for viewers who want to think outside the box or, in this case, the shed.

No longer just for storing garden tools, it's obvious now that the shed has become a valuable outdoor living space, a resource that can have many practical as well as unusual uses.

Amazing Spaces: Shed Of The Year is on Channel 4 at 8.00pm starting on Friday 29 July.
