Alix Harrow: shedworker

It's almost impossible to keep up with all the new garden office builds springing up at the moment, but here's one that really caught our eye. It's the new writing shed belonging to Kentucky-based novelist Alix Harrow. It sums up one of the pieces of advice we always give to proto-shedworkers asking for advice about size, that it's important to make your garden office the size you want, not the size that other people require since, in the nicest possible way, it's all about you. So while Alix's may be smaller than most readers' builds, it's perfect for her. It's one of the most appealing garden offices we've seen for a while.

It cost about $850 to build, using salvaged windows and tin, and the whole thing was designed and put together by Alix and her family. It's insulated but there's no electricity, with warmth supplied via a propane heater. Interestingly, it has been placed deliberately out of wifi range.
