There are some excellent garden office and shed ads out there. Sadly, this one from B&Q; as highlighted at the marvellous Photoshop Disasters blog isn't among them. And as one of the commenters to the site points out, on the original photo you can zoom really close in. Thanks to Kits and Mortar for the Twitter alert

I talked to Janne today. He fears my insulation order of 300mm thickness in the roof and floors is way too much. He has only 100mm in his house, and most of his builds have only 195mm. Physically, I've ordered a lot of insulation, which has to be shipped [...]

By Gerald Walter From The Victoria Times Colonist The quality of life and the economic cost-effectiveness of our region are in serious doubt. Whether we are battling our way up the Trans-Canada Highway, facing the West Shore's lengthening commutes or watching the politics of Bear Mountain and big-box land, we see expensive sprawl....

The Terrapin Narrow Gauge Society is a loose knit group of railroad modellers that has been meeting together in Southern California since 2000. With an emphasis on modeling narrow gauge, scales in the group run the gamut from HOn3 through to Gn15, and into 1.20.3. Most members however are 1/4 scale modelers, and that is the main scale of the group. Models range from freelance to prototypically correct, and everything in between.

We've covered Richard Horden's m-ch elsewhere on the site several times since it seems to us to be the future of shedworking and with its appearance at MOMA later this month coverage of its advantages is on the up. Hannah Booth in The Guardian (which this weekend had a glut of stories on sheds and yet no mention of National Shed Week) covers similar descriptive ground but her piece stands out because she actually talks to somebody who lives in a m-ch in Munich, architecture student Matthias Franz, who was in student digs before moving into his m-ch in April. Here's an excerpt: "It's better quality living," he says. "I have my own kitchen, I can hear the birds singing, and I can sit out. It's sociable - I have barbecues with my neighbours." And rent is €150 a month - half what he paid before. Is there anything he misses? "Some proper hanging space, and a shoe rack - my trainers sit under the toilet. But I had 22 people round for a party once." Franz cooks "noodles, salads, nothing complicated" in the evening. Such compact living isn't for everyone, he says. "You have to be neat, tidy, pretty organised - and open to new experiences." Booth adds that the Irwell Valley Housing Association is building six m-chs in Manchester to provide temporary accommodation for key workers. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Our Monday posts are sponsored by garden2office, the Swedish garden office specialists.
