A quick search on Craig’s list brought up a few choices for our barn wood siding.  A 20 minute car ride, a few hundred bucks cash and we now have plenty of siding to go around.  Our barn wood came from a 100 year old dairy barn.  You can see in the picture the ‘basement’ [...]

Could you work in a floating garden office?

Keeping on the aquatic theme, Fraser Weir over at the cabin living blog asks if there's anybody out there who would be interested in commissioning a log cabin on a barge (and is going to put together some plans in the near future so it's worth checking back). Here are some of his early thoughts: "Why not buy a steel barge from Holland as done on Grand Designs and then build a Helsinki Log cabin on the deck? I think it would be a grand design worth seeing. Not only would the hull provide additional accommodation but the Helsinki itself has four rooms for living in... I'm not sure what the barge itself would cost plus the mooring but the cabin is around £10,000. We can even fit the kitchen and bathrooms as well as the log cabin. It could be a very inexpensive way to have a luxury home close to London." You can find more details about cabin living here . Photo of a floating shed in Amsterdam by Ange

There's a pleasant synchronicity sometimes in the shed world: I was planning to write a piece today on this marvellous floating shedlike atmosphere highlighted at sköna hem and Poppytalk and recommended by Shedworking reader Emma Stone and have just noticed that Justin at materialicious has just featured it too. Anyway, it's a lovely piece of work, entirely off-grid and as Justin says: "There’s a little motor on the back and a flip-up steering wheel on the roof for whenever they want to move the cabin ….. pretty cool, eh?" More photos, by Johan Carlson, at all of the sites mentioned above.

By William Testa of the Millwaukee Business Times For those of us who are aged 50 and older, it is easy to forget that younger generations did not experience the energy crunch of the 1970s nor the many (often failed) public policy responses to the OPEC oil price run-ups....
