The Beano rarely features garden offices and sheds. Very rarely. Remedying this situation is Derek 'Deek' Diedricksen's new book Humble Homes, Simple Shacks, Cozy Cottages, Ramshackle Retreats, Funky Forts and Whatever the Heck Else We Could Squeeze in Here. Regular readers will know about Deek from his Relax Shacks blog and Tiny Yellow House videos and his book is similarly intriguing, a collection of imaginative sketches - and some photos - of garden offices, sheds, treehouses, dens and other bits of microarchitecture, all with handwritten commentary (though deliberately not with detailed how-to instructions). And if that's not enough, not only is there a short piece in there by me about storage, there's also a sketch of me too... It's hard to imagine that there will be a better book about sheds published this year, nor one by a nicer chap. Incidentally, if you want to catch him in person, Deek is teaching some Tumbleweed Workshops, the first on April 14-15 in Miami.
