About the Author

Sally Coulthard has written extensively about sheds, homes and gardens. Sally also runs her own private garden design practice. Lee John Phillips is an artist, teacher and illustrator based in Wales. He estimates that there are 100,000 objects in his grandfather's shed. He has currently drawn 4,600 of them.


"Sheds and man caves; the idea of a garden escape is so popular that author and designer Sally Coulthard has written a step-by-step guide to building your own private hideaway in just two weeks for a mere GBP2,500. How To Build A Shed, published by Laurence King Publishing, is equally useful for people who might want to customise their existing shed, perhaps by adding a living roof full of plants or installing electricity." -- Daily Express

That's your 2019 project sorted!" -- Real Homes

"Armed with a can-do attitude, [Sally] decided to have a go at building her own and the result is a stunning writer's retreat...It's aimed at DIY novices who, like her, are willing to "have a go" and it features very clear, easy-to-follow instructions, expert advice on sourcing tools and materials, along with detailed illustrations and instructions." Yorkshire Post
