    Just watched it tonight.

    In conjunction with a HCC article a few years back, does anyone/has anyone built and put in a quality garden shed to put their AV in?

    I'm talking about the good quality ones, not the B&Q crap. :)

    Basically, you don't neccessarily need planning permission, they can add 5% to your property value and thay can be very nice indeed from what I saw.

    Anyone know more?

    Wot... like these?

    http://www.create-space.com/

    I looked at these when building a home office. Luckily for me my father-in-law is particularly good at DIY projects so in the end we built a 16' x 12' double lined & insulated mega-shed with double glazing, heating, power & light for under £2k.

    Yes, exactly that sort of thing!

    The article in HCC had a guy build a fully insulated shed at the bottom of his garden dedicated to AV.

    Now for me, cost is the deciding factor on what would be possible.

    An interior space of say 15' x 12' would be perfect, and if built cheaply could be the start of something soecial, especially if planning permission can be avoided.

    P.S. Any pictures of your shed at all? For £2K you've got me thinking heavily here.

    NOT if you want to get anywhere near 2k! :cool:

    Most of the stuff we used for framing came from a reclamation yard and the cladding materials from a timber yard. The only things that came from the usual suspects were trimmings, oh, and the windows from Focus as they were selling off some of their ex-display complete units at a price that no-one else could compete with. The door is from Focus too; one of their pre-glazed hardwood French door kits - extremely good value.

    Not at home this week but if I remember on Sunday I'll take a few snaps.
