Hunt The Shed: Local Shed Heroes

Get inspired for our hunt for bike sheds in central Brighton with these local ‘shed heroes’. Stylish, Practical Bike Sheds We hear from one resident who commissioned a shed from Brighton Bike Sheds, a company specialising in designing and installing bespoke bike storage in your outside space.

I commissioned Aaron to design and build a bespoke bike shed for our small garden. When he came to quote, he helped us think through solutions to the space constraints and suggested a design that we hadn’t considered but looked great. I wanted a living roof on the shed but it was hard to find carpenters who knew about them. Aaron was really knowledgeable and able to construct the right kind of roof. The work happened really quickly and we were left with a beautiful shed with an integrated flowerbed, pergola and trellis.  I was delighted with the result. People who visit our house comment on how lovely the garden looks now.
