Turning your shed into a garden office

Sami Grover recounts in some details over at Treehugger how he turned a storage barn structure at the back of his house into a garden office. So instead of building something new they reused the primary structure, converted the lean-to at the back into a workshop area using the original doors from the barn to enclose it, and incorporated reclaimed, recycled and otherwise sustainable materials throughout the project.

One of the most intriguing elements of the build is that Sami brought in Marty Hanks from Sweat Equity Constructionwho encourage clients to "use their labor and design skills during construction, while enjoying the security that comes from using a highly skilled team of craftspeople". The idea is that clients learn new skills - and save money. The article is well worth a read.
