What do you get up to in your shed?

So, after the thread about having your own pub in your shed, what do you actually get up to in your own shed?

Multiple choice answers allowed!

Re: What do you get up to in your shed?

there's absolutely no room in mine, it's choc full of shelving, bikes, lawn mower, garden tools, half a million various pots of paint, car stuff... it's like a game of jenga in there, if i remove so much as a screwdriver the whole lot will come tumbling down in a big heap. i want a garage

Re: What do you get up to in your shed?

We have a potting shed ... where we do potting-on stuff

We have another shed ....where we store other stuff (mowers etc.)

and .....


I have the Garage where the Spider lives and all my tools and a workbench live .... now that is MY idea of heaven

Re: What do you get up to in your shed?

I'm not blessed with a garage so for the last 2 weeks my shed has housed

2x wheels
mid and rear section of exhaust + heatsheilds,
rear subframe + all the suspension arms, shocks, springs and other bits and bobs connected to it...

plus the usual hose pipe, buckets and a BBQ which has seen the light of day twice since february due to the cracking Leeds summer.

Re: What do you get up to in your shed?

I have a shed full of garden machinery/ implements, left over Alfa 164 parts, largely unused bicycles, Its not a place I go to unless I have to and I don't feel a great affinity for it as it usually spells 'hard work to be done'. What I really need at present is a rotovator as my veg garden is now a jungle and I need to get it back into some kind of shape...more work..

My 'real' shed is my boat, where I can happily spend a day tinkering and pretending I'm doing something very important..whereas in fact I usually clean or polish it a bit..make a cup of coffee or soup, measure something I'l get round to repairing eventually, listen to the radio..and get to pretend I could teach Ellen Macarthur a thing or two about sailing.

Escapist Bliss really

There's no room to do anything as it's full of car cleaning products, paint and gardening stuff!
