Hiya!

I am NattyShedGirl of NattyShedLife so I suppose you could say - I’m a god!

But during the day I make sheds, I raise humans and think real hard about stuff folk want to hear...

So many stories fit for the stage.

The Brid

As many professionals take refuge from their busy lives, battling the work life balance, the Garden Office is the ideal solution to creating a space just for them. Increasing productivity and potential.

Cara knows too well the constraints of working from home whilst juggling children and all the responsibilities of running the house. This has spurred her latest venture; NattyShedLife. Her new Shed is called a Brid.

Gillies & Mackay

Are you looking for a Garden Building that knows how to withstand the Scottish weather, is exceptionally good looking and will live on in your family for generations?

Yes?! Well you've come to the right place.

We handcraft all our own buildings from Scandinavian Redwood. Our timber is shipped in from the most northern point called the Arctic Circle, this is to ensure its quality and density.

We make all our buildings in our wee green workshop on East Inchmichael Farm set in the Carse of Gowrie countryside. We have six stunning gardens and a beach displaying 16 different building designs.

Our website is a fountain of knowledge for all things Shed like. Check out the blogs for every question you could possibly imagine, answered by me!

Shedonism (noun):

A belief in Sheds and all they stand for, a sacred place just for you (and maybe a pal) to do whatever it is that makes you happy in this small time spent on earth.
