Where are George Clarke's Amazing Spaces?

We've posted about this show quite a lot already but I know some of you are interested in finding out more about the builds and those taking part so we'll be pointing the way over the coming weeks. So, to kick things off is the Majestic Bus, pictured top. It's a "lovingly converted Panoramic Bus tucked into a garden riotous with flowers near Hay-on-Wye, and enjoying sweeping panoramic views over the Herefordshire countryside". It sleeps four in the bus and there's space for another four camping outside.

Looking ahead a bit to episode 3, Bamboo Ape are based in Bournemouth on the south Dorset coast and provid "bespoke design solutions and unique high quality builds that turn your small spaces into big places".

Here's one of their latest projects (and indeed the one featured in the programme), transforming a 1.7m square Bournemouth beach hut into a space to cook, eat, much about and sleep. And happily it also includes an office area so it's genuinely shedworkingesque.

And there's lots more information about the show at the site of its Creative Consultant and friend of Shedworking, Jane Field-Lewis. -----------------------------------------------------------------------

  1. Really enjoyed this programme, and it's heartening how a small space can be transformed on an equally tiny budget.
    The former public loos in Crystal Palace were amazing!
    Interesting that these spaces are only spoken of in terms of extra space and holiday homes. I wonder how long before the Tiny House Movement catches on here from the US?

  2. Wow man, that’s a really cool place to spend some time and I really love that bus concept.

    So totally UNREAL!
    Yes they are amazing...
    take a touring caravan, buy it for £300, spend £20,000 on it (employing a master craftsman in the process..)
    Yep. it is an amazing space!
    So, totally unreal...

    That cute little woodland hut is in Cumbria and is used to develop the woods around it I think

  5. Face Book Norfolk Bamboo Crafts for a beach hut that is different. Regards Ian
