Deck house

A marvellous, 5.4 metres square shedlike atmosphere from designers Noek in Australia, though it might get a bit parky in the UK winters. It comes in three marvellously named timbers (blackbutt, spotted gum and iron bark) with bi-fold or hinged-up doors and an iron roof. Optional extras include kitchen, bed, massive beanbag, wardrobe and - another extra to add to my 'ultimate shed' list - an outdoor shower. There's a great piece at inhabitat on Australian prefab building which includes several shedlike buildings.


  1. Bit parky in the UK winter - I should say so. Though how about as a Wendy house for children? My daughter would love one!

    i'm googling "blackbutt" immediately!

  3. It is great, isn't it? Nothing too fancy, but done nicely, a good example of a crossover shed. Maybe blackbutt is something I should have checked out first before publishing.
