Shedworking: la grande évasion

I was recently interviewed for the specialist French financial paper Les Echos by the very friendly Thomas Bourdou. Here's what I told him:
"Les Anglais disent shed, les Américains shack, pour parler en fait de la même chose en français: une cabane. Depuis cinq ans, les propositions pour Shedworking ont explosé. Les gens ont envie de travailler de chez eux, de s'isoler de la réalité."
I think there may have been wires crossed towards the end of the last sentence, but it's a really nice piece, and well worth a browse, even if your French is a little rusty.
