I’ve never had a shed before, but now I’ve got two. This one for a workshop and another for my spare timber, paint, empty boxes, and disused electronics that one day might come in useful, etc.

American men (I believe) have Dens. Us English chaps have sheds. that’s because it gets us out of earshot of the woman folk. Sheds are outside the house, where we can imagine for a few brief moments we are in control of our futures, rather than having our futures dictated to us by our spouses 🙂
