Happy new shed year + Eco Judge announcement

Featured Shed News

Happy new year sheddies, I hope this year brings you more shed related antics than 2008.

I hope Shed Week 2009 will be the best ever (If I get my planning done now)

Anyway talking about Shed Week I would like to report that Lloyd Alter, ‘treehugger’ and eco architect has agreed again to be a judge in this years competition, cheers Lloyd.

A bit about Lloyd, who hopefully will be putting his expertise forward for the new Eco-Shed category plus have some good views on the International Shed of the Year.

Lloyd Alter has been an architect, developer, inventor, and builder of prefab housing. He now writes for TreeHugger, is an Associate Professor at Ryerson University teaching sustainable design, and has written for Azure and Ontario Nature magazines. In the course of his previous work developing small residential units and now prefabs, Lloyd became convinced that we just use too much of everything- too much space, too much land, too much food, too much fuel, too much money, and that the key to sustainability is to simply use less. And, the key to happily using less is to design things better.

So if you have an Eco shed, be it made from recycled materials, covered in grass or anything else, then please “Share it” for Shed of the Year 2009.
