Our Solution

The humble garden shed has been named as the most inspirational place in the home by one in three owners. That's according to the woodcare company Cuprinol, which carried out the research as part of a new TV programme that will illustrate Britain's love affair with garden rooms in a series of celebrity challenges. Hobbyists are the most likely people to take refuge in the shed, the poll found, according to Express.co.uk, as four in 10 retreat from the chaos of the house to carry out their pursuits in quiet. Owners of outside spaces such as this actually spend an average of five months of their lives inside them; just over a hour each week. Mail Online reports that TV stars Vic Reeves and property-presenter Sarah Beeny will take part in the show, which tasks the celebs with building their ideal garden building, alongside radio DJ Christian O'Connell. Vic Reeves, a self confessed shed-lover, or "sheddie", admitted that the shed is the place where he goes to think: "I have five in my garden and I often take some time out to escape for an hour or two." Kathryn Ledson, from Cuprinol, agreed that sheds are popular because they are places where people "can get away from the world for some 'me time'.
