There was a huge public response to the competition with more than 3,000 votes for over 900 entries in 12 categories but in a very, very close call the winner is the Rugby Pub owned by Tim from Sudbury, Suffolk. Designed and built by Tim himself, it has eight roof lights, an octagonal roof and double doors. Plus a full bar, three fridges, ceiling fan, running water and sea grass matting floor. And a hammock. But there's no television, no phone and, as Tim puts it, no shortage of liquid refreshment. You can see more pictures and details at readersheds.co.uk and keep checking Shedblog for more updates.Here are some comments from the judges: "This looks like great fun, and those trapezoidal windows in the roof! Not an easy thing to do, and the builder provided the best description. Great job, I want to have a drink there." - Lloyd Alter, Treehugger.com "Like the ceiling fan idea. If I had a shed like this with a bar in it I'd never leave." - Tony (2007 Shed of the Year winner) "Pubs and sheds. It feels like there's a natural link between them, two of the world's greatest building concepts which are far more than the bricks and mortar (or timber and felt) from which they're constructed. As soon as you step inside a great shed, you immediately have a warm and comfortable sensation, and that's exactly how you should feel in a great pub too. Bring the two together and - BINGO! - you've got a very worthy winner indeed." - Alex Johnson from Shedworking Look out for the International Shed of the Year and our photo competition winners later in the week. National Shed Week has been supported this year by Garden Buildings Direct (provider of the grand prize), The Cheese Shed and Make mine a Builders tea.
