Well here on shedblog and readersheds have always know that sheds are special and the general media has started to pick it up again, which is good, The indypendant has a great article on how sheds are helping the current UK credit crunch.
Ten years ago, it went upmarket and became an outsourced office or library for groovy rus in urbe metropolitans; powered by subterranean cables, it featured electric lights, wall heaters, a telephone and sockets for computer, printer and hi-fi â€“ a warm, humming, creative environment, where you could spend hours in contentedly self-delighted browsing, musing and occasional guilty bursts of playing air guitar along with Slash or Mark Knopfler.
Today, it’s become a display cabinet of technological sophistication: a home cinema, a cocktail bar, a personalised, chill-out, son-et-lumiÃ¨re zone of wistful shadows and ambient mood music. Some owners have gone so far as to install a chaise longue, a bed, a fridge and Gaggia espresso machine to replicate, only a few feet from their home, the feel of a very upmarket hotel room.
of course some sheds are like this, but we know a shed can be anything, as long as it’s the retreat that we all want.
now all we need to do is get some of those posh sheddies to share their sheds for Shed of the year.
