When you picture a shed, you might be thinking of a small shack full of dusty gardening tools. But as the Cuprinol’s Shed of the Year competition shows, the creative possibilities for this type of building are endless. The finalists for their 2016 round were recently announced and showcase designs in all sorts of shapes and sizes.
Sheds range in styles from sleek to rustic to downright wacky. Some finalists, like The Shed, have graceful forms that speak to a tranquil, minimalist aesthetic. Others prefer a quirkier approach—the Sci-fi Shed looks like a spaceship from Star Wars, while The Maggie Ewing is a renovated ex-boat wheelhouse. There are even buildings on wheels and ones with rotating floors! Although each submission is drastically different, one thing is clear: these sheds are synonymous with spectacular.
The 32 finalists were whittled down from 2,825 entries. Now, they’re all vying for the top prize, which will be announced on the TV show Amazing Spaces Shed of the Year. The competition still needs your help in choosing a winner—they’ve opened up voting on the Shed of the Year website until June 8, 2016.
