A weekend of sheds

There was a bumper crop of articles in the national media over the weekend about garden offices and sheds. Apart from my piece in The Guardian (plus photo gallery), the same issue also had a nice piece by David Ward, literary consultant to Theatre by the Lake in Keswick, Cumbria, about his zen hut (pictured above, photo: Howard Barlow). Here's what he says:
"The idea for a garden office emerged from two needs: extra space for books (it's a small house) and somewhere for me to work. I left a salaried job just over a year ago and now work for myself at home. My three part-time roles all tend to generate paper and when I was working in a bedroom the paper would spill from the desk, on to the floor and up the walls. I regarded it as an effective system; my wife regarded the paper and me as a mess."
And to top it off, there was a new poem called A Doddle from John 'Shedman' Davies too in what amounted to a mini garden office special.Elsewhere, Alison Cork in the Daily Telegraph profiled Vivid Green (above) and in The Times, Kate Muir wrote on why everyone should have a garden shed.
