The 2019 Shed of the Year finalists are here – and they all look amazing

A shed could be the perfect place to shelter from the sun in the heatwave, but yours is probably nothing like these.

The 21 finalists for the 13th annual Cuprinol Shed of the Year competition include a Shakespeare-themed haven, a playhouse that needed planning permission and a garden-based space hut.

They’re all hoping to be crowned the overall winner, who will receive £1,000, a plaque and £100 of Cuprinol products.

There’s three sheds in seven categories, all vying for your vote. The categories include pub/entertainment, cabin, unique, workshops, budget and unexpected.

The final category is the new nature’s haven award, which has been added this year for designers to show off sheds inspired by the shift towards unlandscaped gardens.

Last year’s winner was the Bee Eco Shed by George Smallwood, with beehives and a giant bug house on one wall.

Voting will close on 29 August at 11.59pm so support your favourite now.
