Dorset shed enthusiast made national shortlist for shed of the year


A SHED enthusiast from Blandford has been shortlisted in the Shed of the Year competition.

Kate Seeger, owner of the “Perfectly Imperfect” shed in Blandford, made the final three in Cuprinol’s “Budget Shed” category.

“Perfectly Imperfect” is a colorful space from which Kate runs the Blandford Arts Forum.

A spokesperson for the competition said: “Shed of the Year is a celebration of the great British shed in all its forms, and this year the much-loved competition turns 16! From miniature to massive, modern to traditional, cozy to minimal and everything in between – you’ll find cabanas of all shapes, sizes and functions in the annual contest”

Chief Judge and Contest Founder Andrew Wilcox was so impressed with the caliber of entrants this year and said, “We’ve seen some never-before-seen designs, which makes it almost impossible to narrow down to just three from each category. A big thing that’s come from successive lockdowns is how much it’s inspired people’s creativity, and it’s great that it’s been channeled into designing their own little escapes.

“The past few years have shown more than ever how our gardens and sheds can play a role in our lives and the different ways they can be used. It was great to see shed enthusiasts, old and new, come up with some truly fantastic ideas, which we hope will inspire the next generation of shed enthusiasts.
