EASY TO INSTALL
Shedman’s little wooden house – usually provided by a local sponsor – has a fairy-tale quality with magnetic power to engage the public. Shedman's shed works best if it's positioned where there are lots of passers-by – such as in a shopping area, a school library, a hospital reception or near a venue. Over the project the shed is raffled to raise funds for a local charity and the whole project can be themed to suit particular needs.
