The shed is the new home

Last weekend, the Independent on Sunday featured the new Shedworking book and the work of shedworker Dawn Fry in a large article by Emma Townshend. It's well worth a read (especially if you like chocolate) and here's a snippet:
I'm feeling jealous. Dawn Fry has a chocolate-making factory in her garden. Hidden in her shed. Actually, it's more of a summer house, with pretty gingham curtains and proper lead flashings over the windows made by her blacksmith husband Joe. But it's a chocolate factory, all right. Jars full of cocoa solids line the dresser, while an electronic warmer keeps the mixture at exactly the right temperature for working.
The article is essentially looking at starting a business from your garden office, but interior designer and garden designer Francoise Murat made a good point on Twitter earlier today commenting on the feature, that "the shed is the new home". What do you think?
