The Shed Logo


Since 2005, the bi-monthly The Shed magazine has been the go-to place for the legions of people whose backyards hum, buzz, fizz, and thump to the sound of a nation making their projects and dreams come real. The magazine is eclectic, informed, and always fascinating. 

Aimed at those with a few tools and perhaps a few clues: this is the magazine for real sheddies. Every issue is packed with ideas, projects, advice, and peeks into other people’s sheds providing inspiration and techniques. The Shed is here to showcase the sheddie’s endless talents and inventiveness whilst having projects aplenty to help wannabes improve their own skills and abilities. 

The Shed is published by Parkside Media, one of New Zealand’s largest independent publishers. Established in 1990, Parkside produces some of the country’s most popular magazines, social media, and websites.
