Garden office concert halls

Normally when we think of garden offices we have a smallish building in mind. But of course size is no obstacle when it comes to running a business from your back garden. Christopher Middleton in The Guardian takes a look at music lovers who have big enough back gardens that they have built little concert halls in them. David and Mary Bowerman   have a 160-seat concert hall 20m from their living room at their Champs Hill bungalow and recent headlining artists have included Dame Felicity Lott, Julian Lloyd Webber, and Sir Thomas Allen. Admirably, they ask for donations rather than charge for tickets. The article also features Douglas Paterson who built his 200-seater for just £50,000 and the Old Granary Studio  run by Jill and Andrew Giller. Well worth a browse.
