Could sheds solve our housing problems?

An interesting short piece in The Guardian by Patrick Barkham suggests that "planners could draw inspiration from the simplicity of the original concep" of the Shed of the Year competition. Here's a snippet:
"Perhaps it is too much to hope that our love for sheds might yet transform our housing industry, planning system and building regulations to allow the creation of simpler, cheaper, low-consumption homes. But that passion should be a start."
Readers may also want to take a peak at something I wrote along similar lines a couple of years ago for The Independent.
