Sep 11, 2018 | For Fun!

The Shed Of The Year Winner has been announced, and the winner is buzzing!

Last month we showed you the finalists for Shed Of The Year 2018 and after much deliberation the winner has been announced.

George Smallwood’s Bee Eco Shed claimed top spot beating an Irish pub and a unique converted London black cab to the much coveted annual award.


George’s handmade Bee Eco Shed is a self-watering and self-sufficient haven for vegetables, herbs and insects.

George Smallwood, from Sheffield said ” We hope our shed will inspire others around the UK to create spaces for wildlife in their gardens,” he added.

“We’re so proud that our shed has become a habitat for nature in a small urban garden, showing you can always do your bit for making a home for nature.”

Pocketing the £1000 prize money and the award was a “welcome surprise”

Competition founder Andrew Wilcox said: “The competition was extremely tough this year, from a musical shed on the water, to a taxi, to an authentic Irish pub.

“George’s shed stood due to its impressive, handmade structure but also because of its unique story and special purpose.”

So you have until next year to get your sheds up to scratch for the 2019 competition!
