A thoughtful post by friend of Shedworking Lloyd Alter over at Treehugger focuses on the question, will garden offices catch on in America? I've chatted to Lloyd about this issue and, while he's a supporter of homeworking and shedworking in general, as he points out in the article he's still unsure about its chances of catching on in the same way as it has in the UK. Essentially he feels the climate and attitudes to home ownership make it unlikely, despite the obvious attractions. I'd be very interested in your thoughts, especially if you're an American or Canadian shedworker (or indeed if you're in America and Canada and think it's a terrible idea). It's a timely contribution to the shedworking debate as next month we hope to bring you some news on this very topic. Watch, as they say, this space.
