George Clarke (Amazing Spaces) uncovers a world of glorious eccentricity when he presides over the prestigious annual "Shed Of The Year" competition.
The competition is split into seven categories (Unique, "Normal", Eco, Summerhouse, Workshop, Office, Pub) with the winner of each group going through to the grand final. This series follows the hunt for those extraordinary obsessives and eccentrics who have designed and created the most jaw-dropping sheds in towns, cities, coast and country across the UK.
Some examples featured include in the Unique category, a 21-foot teapot and a shed that houses an extraordinary Titanic museum. But will either be strong enough to see off the challenge of a cinema shed with over 3,000 films on offer and a sound system better than most you'll find at your local multiplex? In the Eco category there's a garden shed with a roof allotment, a shed made out of 5,000 wine bottles, an egg shaped studio and finally, an incredible glass shed built over a pond. Ever popular pub sheds have their own category, revealing some ingenious watering holes, and their friendly landlords. And where better to build a pub than in the back garden?
George is joined by his master craftsman mate Will Hardie, designer Max McMurdo and architect Laura Jane Clarke, who travel the country visiting these incredible sheds and their eccentric designers hoping to take home the ultimate shed prize.
George Clarke and his fellow judges visit the most eccentric shed owners across the country, on the hunt for Shed of the Year 2017. The Shed Olympics kicks off with two categories of four sheds.
This year a brand new category has been created...'Not a Shed?' It celebrates some of the 75 different varieties of shed out there and embodies the boundary pushing passion and ingenuity that Shed of the Year is all about.
Next up 'Pubs and Entertainment', which will be the only place on earth you'll see a West Country whisky den go head-to-head with an immaculate reproduction of Dr Who's Tardis. Next up in 'Unexpected' Sheds, there's a life saving hedgehog rescue centre, competing with the smallest cathedral in the UK.
Then it's the turn of the 'Historic' category where George gets a lift from a man who has restored a classic 1930s car and built the shed he restored it in. He's pitted against a WW2 police station, complete with jail cell. In 'Workshops and Studios' George goes to a shed that was used to write a multi-million selling book trilogy. Whilst Max visits a workshop in Wales, inside which the owner creates life changing limbs for children around the world.
With two places left, only one shed will make it from each of the 'Budget' and 'Eco' categories. Budget builders are all about saving the pennies and the Eco builders have a slightly loftier goal in mind. The eco category features a glorious woodland stargazer which is vying for the top spot over an elaborate hobbit house.
George and the judges will then have the difficult job of choosing which of the eight finalists will receive the coveted award - Shed of the Year 2017.
