You may remember us mentioning the textured ceiling in the office in a previous post. Not sure if you can tell by the picture (you may have to click it to enlarge it), but it was not a sprayed acoustical ceiling (i.e. popcorn ceiling) -- it was a very [...]

A door that is not ours

A reader of this blog emailed me a photo of a front door that I just had to share: I love the skinny windows that allow light into the house but still give the people inside privacy.  I’m not sure about the colors, but it’s hard to tell without seeing the entire house . The overall [...]

Follydock

Follydock was an exhibition of follies in Rotterdam in 2007 (never say that Shedworking is not the first with the breaking news) which encouraged architects to come up with something for the harbour area which was really imaginative. There are lots of marvellous examples of shedlike structures at the site, but here are two that caught the Shedworking staff's fancy in particular: above is the House of Ki built of willow and loam by Jan van Shaik, below Captain Holland by Alexander Filimonova, a shedlike house with special flood platform for flood emergencies. Hat tip (do we still say that on the interwebs?) to Judit Bellostes

Clive Stafford Smith: shedworker

Human rights lawyer Clive Stafford Smith is interviewed by David Aaronovitch in The Times about his work, some of which takes place in a garden office - or as Aaronovitch describes it "a medium-sized garden shed with steamed-up windows" - at his Dorset home. He continues: “We call it the Pentagon,” explains Clive, after he has telescoped out of his chair to meet me. And so it is, but very irregular and basic. There is a wood-fired burner for heating, a rudimentary set of bookshelves, a dreadful bit of human rights statuary that Emily won't have in the house, an Apple Mac, an iBook and an iPhone, a Thermos for Clive's coffee, and no loo. Although he says that he goes back to the house for a pee, I wonder. There are bushes - and no one, surely, is that saintly."

Christine Farmer: shedworker

Christine Farmer is an artist (working mainly in monochrome and pen and ink) and writer (specialising in history and philosophy) living and working in Stourbridge in the West Midlands (see more about her at her website here ). She is also a recent addition to the ranks of shedworkers. Here's what she says about it: "I love my workspace! Having it built was one of the best decisions I ever made. Previously I was drawing on the dining room table, but since I decided to take art up full time professionally, I really needed a better working environment: hence the ‘shed’! It’s just ideal for the semi-recluse who needs peace and quiet while working, and I love the view of the pond and wildlife – very relaxing. The only downside is having no kitchen etc. and having to pop back to the house when it’s chucking it down! "The shed went up in two days and didn’t make a mess of the (tiny!) garden. Quentin from Green Retreats came out to talk design, and just how big a building we could squeeze into the available space, and a month later it was there!"

Vintage postcard enthusiast Marie Isabelle Reed got in touch yesterday to talk about her collection and naturally Shedworking asked her what she had in the shed line. She came up with this atmospheric wood cutter's shed just outside Versailles where the kings of France hunted. You can see more of Marie's collection at cpaphil.com and her blog .

I am seeing this hybrid furniture pop up pretty frequently so I'm going to start tracking it. I'm looking at small lounge seats, not too soft or comfortable, but with tablet arms or fold away surfaces to hold a laptop or other work.
