If you are thinking of retiring soon then you will need to start thinking about what you will be doing next. While this is not something you think you will want to have on your mind immediately, it does help to have a plan post retirement simply because that is when you realize you have more time on your hands than you know what to do with. This often leads to people becoming extremely bored and quite unhappy. So it is really important to have a plan in mind for when this does happen.

One of the best things you could do if you are an older gentleman closing in on the retirement age is to go and create a garden workshop. A workshop is a project you can dedicate yourself to, and one that will help you with all your future projects as well. Setting on up in your garden is a great way to get things done and you can have a space of your own within your property to just work and make things for your own pleasure and enjoyment.

So what do you need to make a garden workshop? Well the very first thing you will need is a suitable work space. Setting up a small shed will do the trick but for that you may have to clear out some space in your garden. A shed that you can walk around in and place a table in is ideal. Once you have the space cleared out, a hardwood shed should do the trick as it will help you keep your tools and materials out of the rain and the sun. Finally just make sure that you are able to angle the shed so that you have access to a lot of natural light coming in.
