Haunted shedworking

A nice article in the San Jose Mercury News by Julia Prodis Sulek (with full slideshow at her own site) about the refurbishment of a "haunted shed".
The structure is now a charming cottage and work studio for Rebecca Sweet, who is a landscape designer. The roof on the 18-by-12-foot shed was pitched and decorative wood beams added to create an airy feeling and rustic charm. Her husband replaced the old aluminum windows with vintage cottage windows. He plastered the walls and painted them a buttery yellow. A long counter was built on the far end, stretching across the back, to lay out design plans. The shelves underneath store the family's earthquake supplies, which are hidden by lovely linen curtains.
Well worth a browse.
