Revolving shed - technical expertise appeal

Shedworking reader Sam Krijan has been in touch to tell us of his intriguing plans to build a rotating shed on the spot pictured above, remote from his own home. If anybody has knowledge of turntable mechanics (and/or how George Bernard Shaw's rotating shed worked), please do email him. It sounds like the final build will be an interesting one: Sam plans to use solar energy, catchment water and local building materials, maybe including straw bales. The overall size will be determined by the turntable, but should not exceed 10x10. We'll post updates on Shedworking.

    On one episode of grand designs the homeowner (Monty Ravenscroft) showed a past project that was exactly this - a rotating shed. He then went on to design sliding glass roofs. It was the second episode in series four.
