My new crafting shed!

Here are some pics of my new shed, built especially for me to do my crafting in. I've shown it in stages from where it was going to where it's been insulated. It's since been painted inside. It's 12' x 8' and has 2 opening doors with a lock and key (already got it alarmed lol). We've added a couple of extra windows at the sides, as I felt I needed more light. We're just starting to add the furniture now which comprises of 2 old school desks which were given to me free as they were going to throw them out, which I've had to order trays for, a desk I picked up on ebay for £4.20, plus other bits of storage I've picked up along the way.
I'm just waiting for my trays and electrical sockets to come, then I've got the job of moving and sorting all my stash, which is going to take ages, but will be worth it when everything's labelled and I'll actually be able to spend more time crafting than looking for stuff.
I'll add some more pics when all my stash is in and organised.

OMG Julie, your own HOUSE for crafting? o_0 Dang, and I thought I was lucky to get a teeny-tiny room for it :D

I bet your shed is better protected than your house with all your beloved crafty stuffs in it ;)

It's huge!!!! I'm dead jealous, Julie. Have just shown it to my hubby in way of a huge hint and he's shuffled off muttering under his breath. It looks nearly as big as my garden!! Will be looking out for more piccys, so I can go even greener. May you have many years of happy crafting in there.x :D
