Posh Shed Appreciation Society: design competition

The Posh Shed Appreciation Society is a Facebook group run by carpenter Martin Cox who specialises in garden offices, sheds, outdoor structures and reclaimed materials. Today, Martin's launching a design competion aimed at non-professionals, although pros are welcome too. Here are the details:
What would your perfect small outdoor space look like and what would it be for? A posh shed on wheels for towing to festivals perhaps? A snug reading room for the end of your garden? A party hut a la 'Miniscule of Sound'? Or just a funky storage idea? However simple or wacky, send your ideas to this group by 10 December. You don't have to be a designer, a builder or a Habitat fan - you just need to have one inspired idea. Describe it in a few words or just draw a rough sketch and post it to the group page. Easy. There's no big cash prize I'm afraid, but the best one will be drawn up as a shiny new 3D sketch and offered to clients as one of my range of designs! You will be given full credit for this. Let your imagination run wild.
Pictured above is the Ionic Temple at Rievaulx Abbey. Your design doesn't have to be that posh.
