Once again, Shedblog has announced the winner of the Shed of the Year contest. This year's winner belongs to Alex Holland from Machynlleth in mid Wales. It's a shed with a boat for a roof!
The unique and beautifully crafted shed is no ordinary design. It has a recycled upturned boat for a roof and a 20w solar panel to power LED lights. Located at an altitude of 750ft above sea level in the Cambrian Mountain range, mid Wales, the rustically charming shack is made entirely from recycled materials and contains a wood burner, 12v sound system and gas cooker – as well as a refrigerator to store chilled drinks.
Alex Holland comments: “I am absolutely delighted to have won the 2013 Shed of the Year competition sponsored by Cuprinol. The standard and creativity shown by the other entrants has been incredible so I am genuinely surprised to have reached the top spot! With the £1,000 prize from the sponsors Cuprinol I intend to buy a second hand 400w 12v wind turbine to augment the solar panel to give me enough electricity to make ice in the fridge for gin and tonics, and to ensure the cider and beers are always chilled. I’ll then be able to have a proper party to celebrate with those who have supported me in getting so far.”
