High style shedworking (especially for women)

The New York Times has two articles of interest to shedworkers. Firstly, Michael Cannell's piece Prefab Sheds - Modernism in Miniature which talks to those who have bought garden offices in the US (including Kithaus, Modern Shed and Modern Cabana, pictured above with its owner Marie Delahaye who uses it as an art studio). I was particularly intrigued to read this: "The high-design shed appears to hold particular appeal for women, who rarely have much dedicated space of their own in the American home (unlike men, who have historically laid claim to home offices and dens). Roughly 60 percent of Modern-Shed’s customer inquiries, for example, come from women, according to Mr. Smith." Secondly, The Next Little Thing by Steven Kurutz, focuses on the rapidly growing small house movement and the big names Shedworking readers will already know about (Jay Shafer - whose tiny house is pictured below on the road - Gregory Paul Johnson, Richard Horden, and so on). Both are well worth a browse.

Great renovation of a 200 year old Alpine hut that had sat empty for 50 years. Local woods and carpentry methods were used, along with massive stone blocks from a nearby quarry. Gorgeous. Andreas Fuhrimann Gabrielle Hächler
