Farewell to Shedworking HQ

It's the end of an era. As some of you know already, the Shedworking staff and family is moving house today and tomorrow (Wednesday) and unfortunately the Shedworking HQ will be staying behind to enrich the lives of a new family (coincidentally very close friends so we'll be able to make guest returns). We've been in here five years now and have obviously become very attached to the place. But needs must when the devil drives, and a move is necessary for a whole host of reasons. Sadly our new home does not have a garden office (yet - garden office suppliers take note...) so we will be cellarworking for a few months until the dust settles and a new Shedworking HQ can rise in pomp and ceremony. I feel slightly fraudulent in continuing the site while not actually working in a garden office, but I hope you will all understand the reasons why and continue to pop in to see what's new here (there will be plenty, as always). If you'd like to post goodbye messages to the little green fellow, I promise to pass them on.

  2. good luck and I welcome cellarworking as a new genre, good chance for spiders and cider storage, so I hope to read more about those two things very soon.

  4. Cellarworking is probably bigger than shedworking in North America, but check where you are on the UK radon map http://ukradon.org.uk/article.php?key=indicativemap and put in some fresh air if you are in any of the coloured areas. Shedworking is a lot better for your health.

  5. As a current cellarworker, Alex, I can tell you that it's a great motivator to get a garden office built!

  6. Enjoy the cellar, until the new shed comes along....

    I work in a caravan,(that I've never towed) and I love it!

  7. The green fellow is one of the most famous sheds in Britain. Maybe the new owners will run tours. I hope the move goes well.

  8. Hi Alex,
    All the best with the move. Will the new owners of the shed display a blue plaque to commemorate your famous occupancy? You will now be able to tell us whether it is true that having a garden office improves the marketability/sales price of your house.
    Cheers
    John

  9. It looks like a beautiful little shed. But just think what you could build knowing all the options you have! (And one would think shed vendors would be lining up at the door to give you a deal on a new office.)

  10. Dungeons and dragons for fairies and gnomes. Should be interesting.
    Bon voyage!

  11. I'm saddened to see you leaving the green shed that helped me win that nifty book; Shed Chic. Give it a pat and a Thank You from Laura Amongst The Oaks.

    You could at least put up a tent in the cellar.

  14. I've seen your interior via webcam and call,

    The first glimpse of your green roof I stood enthralled.

    You, dear shed, have housed a blogger & writer of great repute,

    Here's hoping your new owners don't fill you with wellington boots.

  15. As you should know more than anyone, Alex, shedworking is as much a state of mind as a venue for work. You'll be OK.

  16. Good luck with your new occupiers, dear green one...

    I hope your old occupiers have as much fun in their new abode, as they have had with you...
