Shedworking featured in the Sunday Telegraph

A nice piece by property specialist Graham Norwood in The Sunday Telegraph on shedworking includes some quotes from me and shedworker Kirstie Allsopp who, like me, works from a Homestead Timber Buildings garden office. Kirstie is very bullish about shedworking, pointing out:
"This is the way forward, especially now with very little moving on the property market and the high cost of stamp duty, agency fees etc. If you’re planning to work from home, you don’t have to move house or lose your spare bedroom – gain a room outside instead.”
There's also a nice mini-slideshow of various models of garden office. Well worth a browse. If you've come here for the first time via the Telegraph article, then you're very welcome indeed and please have a nose around the site.


  1. Alex, have you got a BIG A on your shed roof ;)

  2. I have got a big a but not on my roof.

  3. I thinking of getting a Giant S in the Superman shape for my shed, but I dont think my roof woudl take it..

    And, to think, I came here to leave a comment to say congrats on the S Telegraph profile and I find you and Uncle Wilco chattin' about big A's and S's on roofs.

    What has the shed world come to.

    Well done on the profile. Great piece!

    Ah. Now I know the reason for the big letter talk.

    Have just spotted a rather large K embedded on Kirsty's roof.

    Wonder if you could have neighbours with names that spell SWALK? That would make for a romantic avenue.
