I’m back on the grid with a few choice tidbits regarding the book and the seemingly unending Eco-Shed studio project. First of all, I must salute my friend Robert Ouimet of Bigsnit, for the may hours he invested relaunching this site. After you’re done here, go over there and hire him for some stuff. I’ve added the [...]

Shedworking reader Mario Scarscelli writes from Umbria (do we have any other readers from Italy out there?) to show us his lovely capanno (= shed). "I built my little shed in the forest with my wife," he says. "It is my refuge for a good day in silence." He also owns a rather attractive ancient ruined shedworking structure nearby.

Is building with pallets the next big thing? Simon's lovely - and indeed awardwinning - shed at The Plot Thickens is a marvellous example of what can be done (pictured below). Above is the Pallet House by I-Beam as seen on Dezeen (where there are stacks more very good photos). It is designed as temporary shelter for refugees - quick assembly, no extra building materials needed, easily adaptable using local materials into more permanent housing - and was showcased recently in a New York warehouse.

The drawers (like the bedroom doors) are recycled from a previous project (where Dad works), and we were able to take our pick from a number of different sizes. Designing the layout to fit to our given space. More edge banding for the carcass that the selected six drawers will sit in. One (of the two) semi-finished units [...]

Lots of interest in the kitchen flooring has inspired* me to make a new post.

The added in the shelf [...]

So where we left off - oh yeah, concrete! We finally got to pouring concrete in the front. One of the indicators that things are finally getting close, sort of. It’s these little goals that have kept us going, one after the other. You accomplish one goal that gets you to another and so on [...]
