Publisher Description

This book examines the quirky phenomenon of sheds and sheddism, arguing that a bloke's shed begins where a boy's room leaves off, providing a home to the prized objects and boyish dreams there is seldom room for inside the house. Delving into the murky world of the home-from-home at the end of the garden, and telling the stories of the men who spend their time within, the book features structures ranging from a mock-Tudor pigeon loft to a reconstructed Iron Age Roundhouse, hobbies that range from soda siphon collecting to model railway building, and shed-based businesses as diverse as a funeral directors and a shrimp-potters, shed owners everywhere will feel completely at home. An ideal gift for blokes of all ages.
