Marie's Hobby Shed

6 May 2021 | Outpost News, Garden Sheds

When Marie decided she wanted a hobby room, she looked around and found the Outpost Garden Shed that she liked the look of. Her husband Colin ordered the Upland Shed from Outpost without the barn doors and got to work building it for her.

As you can see in the photo above Marie’s Hobby Shed has a nice timber entrance door and aluminium window on the front. Colin made these alterations to the shed himself by cutting a new front wall and adding a second-hand window and door.

How Colin converted the Upland Shed into a Hobby Shed

The Upland Shed kitset usually comes with double barn style doors at the front which are great for garden sheds because they open up wide enough to drive a ride on mower through. Marie wanted a window to let more light inside her hobby room so that’s why Colin ordered it without the barn doors. Colin said he “assembled it, put a floor in, lined it and got a second-hand window and door. Job done.”

The Upland Shed comes with a clear panel of Topglass roofing to let daylight inside. Marie has her work desk sitting underneath this which will give her good light during the day for her crafts.

“We added power and a brick path, and now I hardly see her. If she's not sewing, she is right into ceramics. It’s her place. A real good investment. I was impressed at how easy it was to construct with the good clear instructions provided."  

Inside Marie’s Hobby Room she has a book case, a work desk and a table. The room inside is 3m x 3.2m which is about the size of a small bedroom. You’d fit a single bed or couch and desk or drawers in there comfortably.

“Happy wife with a new she-shed craft room. Thank you Outpost.”

What’s included in an Upland Shed kitset?
