SketchUp: Simon Rumble

Continuing the SketchUp theme, Simon Rumble commented on yesterday's post that he was designing his own 'lair' and here it is pictured above. Here's what he says:
"I'm planning an office/shed in the garden of our house, to provide an office for me and storage for the household. I've been mulling over the design for quite a while and now need to finalise it and get plans into council. Above is my first draft which has windows in the space between horizontal and the sloping roof. The actual space looks like this photo and we're looking at dimensions of about six metres by four metres. I hope to have a wall down the middle to separate the "office" and "shed" parts of my lair."
What I particularly like is that he's also posted a gallery of his inspiration, pictured below. If you have any thoughts on his design or your own SketchUps, or any shedworking inspirations, please leave a comment.


  1. Those last few are less inspiration, more the other side of the fence -- mainly because I have to get technical and work out a retaining wall, as there's a drop of a couple of feet on the other side...

    Measuring up tomorrow and will have my initial plan done by the end of this weekend, so I need to make up my mind!

  2. Nice To see so many Alternative Space images helping to inspire Simon. Good luck with your project Simon, if I can help, please contact me.
