The future of The Shed magazine: your thoughts please

A couple of years ago we contemplated turning The Shed magazine from a simple pdf title that weighs down your inbox into an all-dancing, all-singing, all-shedworking e-magazine which you can read online (or download if you still prefer). There was a mixed reaction to the demo we put together then with the help of the nice folk at Zmags but things have moved on now (not least the price is lower as well as higher readership figures) and we've put together another demo for you all to have a browse around. So please do click here and take a look - navigation is hopefully fairly selfevident and the key thing is to click once on a page to zoom in and make it readable. And once you've had a good nose, do let me know what you think.

icWales reports that the falling property prices seem finally to be having some effect too on beach huts with a hut at Abersoch (corrugated sheeting, wood, 4m x 2.7m, no electrics or water) being sold at auction for its guide price of £70,000. Martin Lewthwaite, senior manager with the selling agents Beresford Adams, is quoted as saying: “Compared to huts we sold last year for £75,000 this one was quite cheap." Of course you can bring a beach hut into your shedworking atmosphere quite easily at an even lower cost using the lovely felt draught excluder pictured above from idealMoments.co.uk .

House on the table

The idea of shedworking inside an office is really beginning to catch on. The latest design comes from Soojin Hyun and is called House on the table. Essentially, it's a cubicle office but it looks like a house, has a wide selection of walls and roofs so you can customise it, and if everybody in the office has one, it feels like you're living in a very sheddish town. Inside is everything you'd expect - bookcase, drawers, windows. I'd rather like one inside my garden office. Via MoCo Loco and Designhole
