Firstly it’s important to have a ‘strong concept’. Everyone featured in this series had a strong vision before embarking on their project.

Secondly, ‘seek advice’.  If we don’t know something ask someone who does and always do your research.

Thirdly,  ‘stay on track’.  Even when the going gets tough, keep at it until the project is completed. As professional designers, we too go through periods on a project when you have to overcome challenges. It’s important at this point to go back to your original idea and check you have incorporated everthing you set out to.

We hope this post has inspired you to get busy with your shed.  We’d love to see the finished results and will even post your shed make-over on our blog. Whatever you decide to do, we would like to know what your dream shed would look like? Please comment below or tweet us @babeswhodesign
