Home sheds are adorable living spaces embracing tiny house living, but have facilities of a conventional dwelling while forming a connection with nature. Every year, UK shed of the year contest witnesses some of the outstanding outbuilding designs, but this year things are going to be more interesting with the international offerings.
To mark the 10th anniversary of the Cuprinol Shed of the Year contest, planners have collaborated with the fan site Cabin Porn to run a Global category. The contest has already started and the entries are quite impressive.
