British sheds

From the BBC, How the humble garden shed inspires genius by Tim Smedley, we learn:
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.

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.
So, 80% of British either have a shed or would like one.

The British fascination with sheds was mocked by Monty Python in a sketch in their first episode in October 1969 - Arthur 'Two Sheds' Jackson.
