Shedworking in Japan

Again my Japanese is letting me down (though I'm sure I can rely on the regular readers who help with translations...) but I thought I'd include this to underline the international nature of shedworking, from Japanese building company Sago Mokuzai------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    There is not a lot more to know that what is shown. It comes in two sizes, 3-mat, 4.5-mat, and 6-mat. These are standard tatami (straw) mat measuring sizes that all Japanese are familiar with. As can be seen from the photo, it is made of wood with asphalt shingles. It lists options for placement and materials (aluminum) for windows and doors, finishes, and cedar. The icons on the right side show suggested uses: library, kids playroom, studio, storage, hobby and office, respectively.

    There are thousands of similar buildings in Japan as well as many made on the basis of containers that can be easily moved. Some of them are set up with electric power and plumbing--from the very basic to quite lavish, though mostly basic.
