The shed friendly telegraph has a piece on Kristie’s shed today and Alex gets a look in and Shed of the Year award is mentioned.
The prospect of setting up business from home may become a reality for many as the recession bites. But doing so no longer involves sacrificing house space or working in a dingy loft – follow property guru Kirstie Allsopp’s lead and move your working area outdoors.
Kirstie wrote her first book from an outside office – with a quirky signature ‘K’ perched on the roof – which she had purpose-built in her London flat’s garden. “It’s a proper outside room with heating, wiring etc, and I still rate it as a really good investment. A garden office transforms not just how you work, but also declutters your home. Rooms seem bigger and pleasanter without a desk, office chairs, cables and computers cluttering up living space.”
Kirstie, whose new programme Kirstie’s Homemade Home starts on Channel 4 in April, now rents out the flat, but her ‘working shed’ remains in the garden.
I am not sure about the big K on the roof of her shed, I bet the Beeny does not have a big B on heres!
