Shed champion Diarmuid Gavin's plan (co-designed with Stephen Reilly) for his show garden at the Chelsea Flower Show (May 22-26) has changed slightly since we profiled it here last month and it's worth flicking back to check on the differences. It's still for an active and artistic mature couple but now includes a much more recognisably garden office structure, clad in western red cedar with two intersecting wings and two glass studio spaces, each with its own deck overlooking a pond. Recycled timber boards have been used for the floors in the buildings and rainwater is collected from the roof to water and top-up the pond. According to Candy Gourlay over at home sweet shed, the garden office is going to be supplied by Rooms Outdoor.
