So You Think You Have Problems With Your Shed!

Gardening has never been so dangerous as shed hangs over 7,000ft drop in the Alps.

Thrill-seeking nature lovers looking for an extreme place to store their shears would struggle to find a more precarious potting shed.

This hut hangs over a 7,000 foot drop in the Swiss Alps in a building that would be vertigo sufferer's worst nightmare.

The wooden hut was built to house the operator of a chairlift in the Portes du Soleil ski and snowboarding resort in Switzerland.

While the location may not be ideal for some, it offers stunning views across the incredible mountain range.

The picture was taken by Romanian real estate agent Florin Biscu during a recent trip to the area.

Mr Biscu said that when fog is in the valley it appears as if the shed is "floating on thin air".

He said: "It is safe inside, just a little cramped. It is strong enough to accommodate one person, but no more. It’s surprising the authorities let anyone inside of it.

"I was very curious to know why it was there. It is very rustic. It looks like the home of Charlie Chaplin in the movie 'The Gold Rush'."

“Fancy having a shed like that one.  Not very practical but then I don’t suppose anyone does very much gardening in that area of Switzerland!” says Greengates Builders Merchants Accrington, Lancashire.
