London – Former British Prime Minister David Cameron spent 25,000 pounds to buy a “fancy shed” for his Cotswolds garden.

According to the Daily Telegraph, he intends to use the new shed as a writing studio.

Since leaving 10 Downing Street, where he lived in the center of London, Cameron went on a tour to give conferences in the United States. He revealed that he also spends his time in practice shooting, his new passion.

Cameron said that he is currently working on writing his memoirs on the years he spent in his previous residence at 10 Downing Street when he served as prime minister. He added that now he has the perfect place to write them.

The fancy shed is made of hardwood and sheep’s wool insulation. Cameron, who admitted that his wife Samantha helped in decorating the shed, chose a pull-out double sofa bed to place in the new studio.

The former prime minister bought the shed from the Red Sky Shepherds site owned by Paul Bennett. In a blog on the company’s website, Cameron said this purchase was his wife’s idea.
