Done. I hoard messages so you can imagine what my loft and shed are like. Talking of sheds, the power goes live in the new one tonight. Plasma telly, broadband and beer fridge to follow next week.

Al, that doesn't look like a "man shed" to me. Are you going to listen to Wham! whilst drinking Malibu and Coke from your "beer fridge"?

We used to live in a Wendy house just like that for QRA but I can't see where you've put the frightful siren!

Hang on, is that the "man shed" on the far right of the photo and the "lady palace" has the ladder on it?

That was spooky Coff, reading your post at the time shown on your clock.

Just another Jockey, arranging a sleepover?

Leon,

I didn't have much control over the colour scheme.

Coffman,

Nice.

We all need a shed!

There was a guy with a big Sunseeker motor yacht in Lymington Yacht Haven (may still be there) called "The Potting Shed". When asked why that name, allegedly the owner replied "Where do you go when you are in the poo with the wife"

Hope your shed(s), and "The Potting Shed", are still in one piece although, looking at the wind speeds in the West Solent, I suspect that the latter might have been at greater risk.

PS "The Potting Shed" reminds me of a bar in NC called "He's Not Here"!

There was a pub in Jersey called "The Office", and a bar in the US called "my friend's place" ... Apologies for deviation, hesitation or irrelevance

Coff,

Your man shed looks as though it is ready for an AOC's inspection! You're letting the side down.

Man caves DO NOT have pink plants out the front, nor matching trim on gutter and window eaves........You need an air of 'early-airlifter', mixing all known aspects of style, design, continents and eras, and selectively filtering the ones that work to achieve the effect...all in the same eye-sore.....
