    I wonder if your sheds often look better than the structures they are designed to complement. :-)

    Sometimes perhaps... depends on what state of restoration they are in. The house where this one was built is in need of paint (they tried out the scheme first on the shed) and a new roof and backyard landscaping since several large laurel oaks in poor condition were removed before we came in. The interior is fabulous though with really incredible trim.

    What a beautiful shed for a beautiful home. I'm dreaming of something charming, as this is, to go with our Queen Anne style Victorian Revival home, but hubby wants to put up a large metal "barn". So not happy about that. I guess I should add that we live in a country neighborhood where metal "barns" are common.
