Fifty Sheds of Grey book review

There has been increased media interest recently focusing on the attractions and advantages of microarchitecture. Fifty Sheds of Grey, inspired by the eponymous Twitter account, is the latest to explore the beauty of small builds.

The black and white photography is certainly of a high standard throughout, featuring many atmospheric images of small timber buildings, mostly in domestic back garden situations, but also including beach huts and interiors of workshops. But readers looking for indepth plans for building sheds, solid advice on insulation, or a thorough examination of the garden office market will search in vain as they wade through many pages of extraneous material.

For those looking for advice on practical shedbuilding, the Shedworking staff would instead recommend The Complete Shedbuilder by JR Hartley, published by Macguffin.
