There isn't an official prize for International Shed of the Year (although a category will be in place for it for the 2009 Shed Week celebrations) but because of the high quality of the entrants Uncle Wilco and Shedworking felt that it was only right to highlight our two favourites and ask the public which one they liked the best. So above is my choice, James Glave 's Eco-Shed in Bowen Island, British Columbia, Canada, the subject of his book due out in September, Almost Green. And below is Mikey B's tiki hut in Altadena, California. It's well worth clicking on the links since there is lots of building detail about each of them on the readersheds.co.uk site.

Instead the PM will be enjoying the delights of Southwold famous for its beach huts and celebrity holidaymakers (such as writer and director Richard Curtis who owns a rather pricey wooden fisherman's hut here). The question is, will Brown be renting a beach hut? And more importantly, will he be doing any shedworking from it? Painting of Southwold beach huts by Alice Thompson

I reused half the original cabinetry.  the new section is half inch cabinet grade birch plywood with bright white formica.  maybe you think white cabinets are a bit 80's?  I think not.  the interior walls are a bit dark and I want the entry and kitchen to contrast brightly.  the cabinet...

Clearly, higher gas prices have affected where people want – or can afford – to live. Just as the demand for SUVs plummets and consumers have finally begun to see the point of hybrids, people are turning away from sprawling exurbs toward urban neighbourhoods and inner suburbs....
