Steampunk garden office

The Tempest - Unexpected from Garden #shedoftheyear

The Shedworking staff are really loving this garden office build by David Stocks (entered into Shed of the Year 2019) which he uses as a writing shed as well as somewhere to relax. Here's what he says about it:
I designed it in a steampunk style, based on books like Jules Verne 's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. It has a submarine style door, a hatch down to the engine room, a round window and a matching round captains table. It is on a raised platform like it is out at sea, with blue lighting underneath to simulate a blue ocean. We named it the Tempest, after our dog who we sadly lost in January this year called Storm and after our favourite Shakespeare play. With sounds of waves crashing played from an onboard speaker, it really makes you feel as if you are at sea. It is also a place we can have friends around.

Click the link above to find out more about his zig-zag path, platform, reclaimed working porthole, and hand-carved walnut sign trimmed with copper. This is certainly getting a vote from Shedworking this year but there's still time to enter, just nip along to and follow the instructions.
