Shed of heaven

A pleasant piece in The Independent by John Walsh - Shed of heaven: Why the credit crunch has people heading for their sheds - who comments that the apotheosis of the garden shed has been one of wonders of the new century. It's a very personal piece about what his Courtyard Designs garden office means to him and celebrating the rise and rise of shedworking. As he says:
"It's a nest of beguilements and distractions in which, sometimes, you catch a glimpse of your real self – even if that's a strange montage of cobwebs, dog-ends, wine-stained glasses, faded copies of the TLS, pinned-up photographs and invitations, dry leaves on the carpet and dead wasps in the inkjet printer."
Well worth a browse.
