With a good 5 months until the next episode of Doctor Who, what better way to enjoy the rest of the summer in the comfort of your own garden than by investing in a TARDIS-like shed?
You certainly wouldn’t be alone; fans as remote as Christchurch, New Zealand are ditching traditional leaning roof sheds in favour of Metropolitan Police Blue.
It’s all a part of – and this’ll tickle you – National Shed Week, and the examples on the link above have had their entries for Shed of the Year 2008 shortlisted down to just 12.
Thankfully, "meantimebob"’s Type 40 shed is there in the running for the wholly coveted title of Shed of the Year 2008, and with a superb realisation of the TARDIS cicra 1981, it’s hardly a surprise. The sheddie (no, really) who built it says:
My shed’s been out there a good few years now and has survived gales blowing in off the Thames and cosmic rays. It also houses my swimming pool.
For some reason snails love climbing up it and both cats and foxes enjoy lounging on the roof in the sunshine.
Those foxes have taste.
