Here are some samples to get you thinking - as you can see unconventional is not a limitation:

They are superb, Ian! I have been taking photos of sheds and barns for an Australian theme I was doing for our Ag show - wish I had those ones for it. :P Will be hard to match that standard :)

Marrion, if you took the pics, regardless of where they are now, you still own copyright on them. Do you not still have the files somewhere on your computer? I expect there would be some absolutely wonderful sheds in Tasmania!

:D Oh Yes Paul I too like that one best.....it has a real country homy feel to it doesn't it...it reminds me a bit of the thatch roofed sheds that still survive here in the Wimmera...they are built of local Casuarina and straw thatch and some of them are just wonderful.My neighbour has one that once housed 18 draught horses and some of the tack is still hanging there....the feed trough is a huge hollowed out log that runs the full length of the centre of the shed and the horses fed from both sides.. I began to paint it but couldn't do it justice so gave up.
:idea: If I could get the logs from a fallen one I'd have a go at building a shed like that one.....now to go for a drive and see whats falling down around the area....oh ...no car.....put that idea on hold for now :cry:

It sure is fantastic, would give my eye teeth for one like that, the one I have was my husband's "office" when he was working in the bush :lol:

Glad you like it - it is actually my brother's garden shed that he built himself several years ago - he wanted to use up some logs he had and tracked down some roofing that was suitably aged so the whole thing had that 'lived in' look straight away so that it blended into the surrounding garden..............
