In Britain, the shed at the bottom of the garden is far more than just a place to store tools. It is an institution – a domestic oasis where owners seek refuge, an outlet for individual style, and, increasingly, an office space.So, 80% of British either have a shed or would like one.
Britain is often quoted as having more sheds per capita than any other country. Around two thirds of Brits own a shed; of those who don’t, 44% would like to.
The British fascination with sheds was mocked by Monty Python in a sketch in their first episode in October 1969 - Arthur 'Two Sheds' Jackson.
