Well the foundation wall forms are almost completely in place. As I type, Tino’s crew is at the site buttoning up the last sections. Hopefully the rain will hold off so we can pour them today also. Below are a couple of photos we snapped at the end of the day. You can see in the [...]

Liam found some great lamps on KSL.com yesterday for $25 a piece. I am so tempted to buy them, but I am kind of on the fence, so I thought I put it out there to see if anyone else wanted them. Any real details about them are a little fuzzy, besides the [...]

Recycled plastic bottle sheds

If you're really keen to go down the green shed route, here's an ambitious project for you - build it out of recycled plastic bottles. Above is an example belonging to Crafty People 's Sister C at the historic St Anns Allotments . Built around a timber frame, the bottles were collected from friends and family before being cut to size (there's a good explanation of how that's done on her site). Alternatively, try doing one without any timber at all like Jane Burt's installation below. Her ‘Green Green House’ was made with more than 1,000 recycled plastic bottles collected from friends and the local recycling centre. The roof is self-supporting and the bottle bases were sewn together to make a stained glass window over the front door plus bead curtain for the entrance. Here's what she says: "The green house has a wonderful fluidity and luminosity whilst creating a harmonious link to its natural surroundings. In this climate of enhanced conservational awareness, it is exciting to bring a practical element to recycled materials whether it be inspirational, educational or regenerative. I trust I have demonstrated that trash can be transformed into a beautiful building that sparkles and shimmers in the sun while conserving heat and rainwater."

Three useful sites for shedworkers and other homeworkers in the US: 1) Undress4Success - Run by Kate Lister and Tom Harnish who say: "We've been working from home for over 20 years consulting, building a very successful aviation business believe it or not, and writing. Here you'll find lessons we learned along the way, tips on how to make your work-at-home dreams come true, and advice on how to avoid some of the mistakes we've made and the scams we've encountered." 2) Best Workplaces for Commuters - Managed by the Center for Urban Transportation Research at the University of South Florida, the site provides lists of Best Workplaces for Commuters, offers a web-based tool to help employers assess the impact of their organisation's commuter benefits, and generally provides lots of answers to key questions plus onward links. 3) Both the above recommendations come from ecopreneurist , an interesting site which "covers the latest trends in building green, sustainable and socially responsible companies and products" and is part of the Green Options Media network which "combines the observations of a wide variety of well known writers in the sustainable business eco-sphere".

An extra book for your bookshelf this week, Jo Orchard-Lisle's Fishing Huts: The Angler's Sanctuary is just out in hardback from Excellent Press and takes a long and illustrated look at fishermen's shelters in Scotland, England and Wales. Among those featured is Isaak Walton's retreat on the Dove, a tin bothy in the Scottish Highlands and FM Halford's in Mottisfont (below). I've not actually seen the book yet but it looks very tempting. Thanks to David 'Gib' Gibson for the alert
