An elaborate tree house and a cabin on wheels are among the weird and wonderful structures to be named finalists of Cuprinol Shed of the Year 2015.
To make the final 12, entrants had to come top in one of eight categories: pub; eco; workshop and studio; cabin and summerhouse; unique; normal; historical; and budget.
Entries included the sleek Art Deco-style Starliner Diner, the beautifully intricate wood-carved Cabin of the Green Man, and the camouflaged Garden House, which is a replica of an Anglo-Saxon hideaway with a green roof.
The finalists are set to appear on a Channel 4 show Amazing Spaces Shed of the Year, which will help the public to whittle down the shortlist.
A panel of judges - including the founder of the competition Andrew Wilcox, last year’s overall winner Joel Bird, Channel 4’s George Clarke, craftsmen William Hardie, industrial designer Max McMurdo, and architect Laura Clark - will then name what they believe is the most impressive design.
