101 Excuses to Escape to Your Shed


Find yourself, in your shed.

Turn your she-shed or man cave into your own private escape with 101 simple, practical ideas.

Take some well-deserved alone time and learn to preserve lemons and chillies, whittle a butter knife, tie your own fishing flies, keep chickens, plant a roof garden or make a camera obscura.

Why not transform your shed itself? This book is full of inspiration for anyone who has dreamed of having an observatory, a sauna, a pub – or just a bit of peace and quiet at the bottom of the garden.

The perfect gift for anyone who would rather be in their shed.
