Shire Workspace Sheds

Shire Workspace Sheds

The kitchen table is ideal for some hobbies, but no use at all for anyone who needs space to move around or store tools and equipment. When you need space for your hobby, you need a shed.

The Shire Workspace Apex garden shed from elbec is ideal for hobbies such as quilt making, woodworking and running model train displays.

With three sizes in the range – 10x10, 15x10 and 20x10 – you’ll be amazed by the amount of usable space on offer, giving you room for just about any hobby.

The windows are along one wall so there’s plenty of light but, because they’re not all round the building, you have an uninterrupted length of wall for shelves and cupboards.

The Workspace shed comes flat packed and is easy to put up, although an assembly service is available if required.

January Workspace Offer

From now until 31st January, the 20ft x 10ft Shire Workspace shed is on offer at only £1199, a saving on nearly £800. You won't find a better value workshop shed anywhere!

It's official Sheds are no longer humble

There is a lot happening in the shedsworld at the moment. Men Sheds organisations are popping up all over the country. It is an idea that has been popular in Australia for many years and is now over here. Men folk get together in a shed (although usually a cabin) and share their skills to generally make or repair all sorts of things, adding value to the local community. 

A Men's shed club due to open in Oswestry

“Is offering an opportunity for men of any age with time on their hands to get themselves out of the house and meet new people; welcoming men who may feel isolated or lonely because of divorce, bereavement, retirement or job redundancy to come along, socialise and help to make a difference in the community.”

There are at least a hundred of these clubs in the UK now, and it has been reported that there may be health benefits to joining them. If this interests you why not look to see if there is a men’s shed organisation near you or even start one.

Don’t think the ladies are missing out though, as “She sheds” are booming where sheds are transformed into magnificent hobby homes at the bottom of the garden with all the trimmings and comforts a lady might expect. 

Think of sheds, you automatically think of garden storage for gardening tools and barbeques etc.

The Lancaster news reported a chap from Lancaster has taken the once humble garden shed much further. His backyard shed has been used as a concert stage after his dad likened the shed to a bandstand.

So he held a concert in his back yard with live music and a 100 folk fed with smoked pork from a truck at the front of his home.

We would love to see some pictures of the more unusual uses of the garden shed.

What's in your garden shed?

As we all know the average shed tend to be used for storing all sorts of garden equipment from lawnmowers and tools to barbeques and garden furniture. It was recently reported that a shed owner in Oxfordshire  kept a World War Two mortar shell in their garden shed for more than a decade believing it to be deactivated.

Luckily before demolishing the shed, they checked with police who found it to be live. The shell was safely detonated by army bomb disposal experts.

“Thames Valley Police described it as a "historic live munition" and told residents in a tweet there was "no need to worry". “
