Wickes has unveiled the finalists of its Home Office Awards 2021, crowning a sensational garden shed office from Scotland as the overall winner.

Claire Hughes, based in Caithness, wowed judges with her impressive and super stylish shed, which she built from scratch during lockdown. Without anywhere sturdy enough to store toys, Claire set herself the challenge of creating a shed from scratch — and it’s now the ultimate sanctuary.

“With the help of a friend, I designed and built the shed, which turned out to be the perfect room for home working and has become a sanctuary of peace and quiet for the family,” Claire said, speaking about the design. “It was hard work so to be recognised for that is incredible, especially from a company that sees a lot of sheds!”
