Alastair Humphreys: shedworker

Adventurer, author and motivational speaker Alastair Humphreys has also recently added 'shedworker' to his already impressive CV and has been charting the build on Twitter. Here's a snippet from a recent blog about his experience of self-building (with help from a friend).
"Over the last couple of years I’ve begun yearning for a specific workspace of my own. A place where I could think “this is where I work. Today I am going to grind out some creativity and get 2000 words written no matter how little I feel like it.”... I wanted somewhere to play Thunder Road on repeat very loudly. I needed to leave home, to go somewhere to work (‘I’m heading out of here to win!’) and then to come home again when I’d finished and to properly relax, like normal people do. I couldn’t really justify renting an office when all I need is a computer. And, besides, I didn’t choose my direction in life in order to have an office. No. What I really wanted was a shed."
