A Shed manual, is there such a glorious document? Yes, but we also know that as Sheds evolve so will a Shed Manual. From 2017 we collaborated with Glasgow Caledonian University as part of their four year Sheds for Sustainability research project which ended in 2021 with the publishing of a Shed Toolkit.
We will continue to keep adding documents to the ever expanding ‘manual’ which are also Scotland specific – available in our Resource Library. The first Shed in Scotland was in Westhill, Aberdeenshire (www.westhillmensshed.co.uk) which luckily for us Shedders and Shed supporters have a few men who have great vision, community spirit and kindness. They decided from the beginning in 2013 to create several documents along the way of creating this first shed, not only for themselves but they knew it was going to be successful and others would benefit. How right they were which has been replicated by other Sheds through the years including our own documents.
Our Resources section is available to our individual members. It is free to join individually and once we have processed your application, furnished you with your own personal log in details you can access them. There really is a shed load of helpful documents just waiting for you.
If after you have seen all the resource information available to you in this section of the member’s area and you have created a resource which would help others in the Shed Movement, please feel free to send it to us for possible inclusion in the Resource Library (email@example.com). Our Association is a grass roots one and together we are the power that drives and sustains it.
