Could McMoonter Tower's Pool Hoose be the 'Shed of the Year'?
Apologies for the shoddy pruning.
It was great fun working with the film crew, I thought they did well to edit out the panics in my breastie.
The guy with wine bottle igloo is featured in the August issue of World of Interiors, he has an awesome water garden.
My nephew cried when the Teapot lost to the cinema.
Strangely we are midge free, it’s usually quite windy outside the garden, so perhaps that’s why they are scarce. I slept up there over a winter, the one where the lochs froze, and loved it. When the sun comes up it heats up like a greenhouse.
Was just sent this via Twitter, India Knight is a Sunday Times columnist. She’s got me all wrong.

Finally caught up. All sheds in mcmoonter’s category were excellent. Chap who won was a worthy winner, though I loved the madness and beauty of the fern house.
Well done mcmoonter – truly inspirational* as ever!

Was watching this and thought “I recognise that place…”
Beautiful location but I preferred the winning shed in essence – probably because of the musical bias – but I’d have it in McM land instead. Y’know, just so’s you can have a nekkid bath n all.
The bottled fern growth chamber was excellent, too. Took him some time from the looks of it.Posted 3 years ago
When I was 5 my folks gave me some 2×1, a sheet of hardboard, a panel saw, set square, a measuring tape, hammer and nails for Christmas. I made a table that wobbled and immediately broke, but I was smitten.
When I get into shed building mode, my inner child screams, its Christmas ’69 all over again.
The best thing about the event was meeting a group of others who were similarly afflicted.Posted 3 years agokudosMember
Really enjoyed the program, I would have loved to see an hour on McMoonter’s gardens – they look amazing! I’m trying to achieve a similar level of cultivated wildness in my little corner of Britain – it’s a lot harder than it looks!
Can’t bear that George the Geordie twerp, I hate the way he says “Shed uv the yurrrrrrrr…”
Kept expecting him to break out his magic markers and his sheet of perspex. Twunt.Posted 3 years ago
What an oasis you have there.
Bleedin marvelous sir!!
It’s a long standing family home, I say long standing, it’s the perfect candidate for Country House Rescue. Every day we seem to be fixing something. It’s not the sort of place that suits everyone, but having been away from it for over thirteen years it’s a great place to come back to and call home.
I’ve been fixing up part of the greenhouse today.

Can’t believe this all passed me by!
I just watched the first episode of Shed of the Year last night and started prattling on to my wife about – “but that’s… that’s mcmoonter’s place, from singletrack – you know – the one who did the studio we were looking at…”
Great to see!
I did quite like the winner of the Eco sheds too though.
Can only assume that the cinema room got some help from avforums or similar though as it was just standard stuff in a standard shed.
I’ll try and get the others watched this weekend.Posted 3 years ago
