Why have a boring backyard shed when you can make your own Roman Temple garden shed? Tony from Berkshire, UK converted his shed into a roman temple, complete with columns, marble panels, grape lights, and a flaming torch!
From the website:
Following on from my interest in all things Roman, I was standing at the kitchen window one day when I casually suggested to my wife that the shed might look better if it was converted to a Roman Temple. She was not amused! Three years passed during which time I produced a computer- simulated view of the garden with the proposed shed / Temple, and I continued to promote the idea at every opportunity. Then, on 23rd December 2004, I was at home when a parcel lorry arrived with my Christmas present, four (very big 2.2 metre) plastic/fibreglass Roman columns. I assumed this meant that I now had "Official Permission" to go ahead.
