To counteract the blues from this week's posts and to celebrate Friday evening let's pogo around a little to The Wombats a band from the UK (not to be confused with The Wombles a fictional band of ecologically savvy furry creatures). I missed these guys [...]

Choosing a shed - Garden2Office (plus exclusive offer)

Mark Ramuz from Surrey-based Garden2Office writes to tell Shedworking readers about his Swedish garden office business. "Your friggebod coverage was inspiring. As a friggebod importer I suppose I'm bound to say that but there were some great sheds. Here are a few pictures of the sustainable buildings I import. I think we're the only company who can offer potential shedworkers a modular kit that they can put together themselves. We also offer a full install service and a 'get you started' service to help with the trickier bits. All our buildings feature timber triple glazed windows that arrive from the factory fitted into the fully insulated wall units. Our buildings are so well insulated that the same system is used for housebuilding in Scandinavia." There's a nice gallery of their models here which have steel roofs, are built of timber and have various cladding options. "All units are built to Sweden’s highest ‘P-Mark’ standard for rain resistance," says Mark, "and the clever ‘tilt and turn’ mechanism makes the window become tighter as the wind force increases." Mark is also very generously offering Shedworking readers a little incentive - a free heat exchange unit (worth £350) if they buy a building. So mention us if you get in touch.

slave huts of bonaire

These huts housed the slaves who were used to harvest salt, still a major export of Bonaire. Not to take anything away from the misery of slave life, but the huts, smack on the beach at water’s edge, are rather beautiful. These two photos were taken by Alida Thorpe, my favorite Fire Island photographer. Check [...]

Airstream alert: Tiny Circus on tour

The Tiny Circus is a group of artists, writers and musicians who are spending the summer putting on an amazing spectacle creating a pack of mini airstream trailers from old rundown trailers. When done, these will roll through America, putting on shows as they go, like the old circuses. The group is currently looking for donations to keep going - financial support would obviously be lovely but also food, equipment, good wishes and general interest are also welcome! You can check out the progress on their blog : the performance aspect will be based on "The Histories of the World", histories of love, mistakes, fighting, weightlessness, and other fabulous things. There will be specially designed puppet shows, animations and films performed in as many places as they can afford to get to. The website is at www.tinycircus.org for more information (you can see from the site the type of work already carried out lovingly restoring an airstream by members of the group).
