Building your own garden office

We did a 'five years later' post about Shedworking reader Mark Porter-Davison's selfbuild garden office odyssey recently and Mark very kindly supplied more images of his build and a few more details. Here's what Mark says about its history:

The short story is that I spotted a beautiful frame in a farmer's field in the borders. A guy had started it as a sort of showpiece for a canoe-building company he was going to run from one of the farm buildings. His plans had changed and a lady saw me taking a pic of 'my dream shed' and whispered that I could probably buy it, because the farmer wanted it removed. I ended up buying the frame and having it moved to a friend's house on a truck. From there I had to take it all apart, piece by piece, and move it on my car's roof to its new home at the end of our garden. Then I set about dusting down my CDT skills not touched since school and trying to rebuild, refactor and complete it using tools I picked up in Lidl. I'm delighted with the end result and it's become my home office and source of daily sanctity and solitude... all inspired by your book!
