SHED CHIC - By Sally Coulthard (publish date May 2009)
Outdoor Buildings for Work, Rest, and Play
"Like a treehouse, everyone is enchanted by the idea of having a garden shed—one’s very own private refuge. Whether a hobbyist’s den or guest quarters, a quiet retreat for much needed “personal” time away from the family, or an additional play space for the children, these picturesque structures can accommodate many purposes. Ranging from useful to whimsical, the backyard havens in SHED CHIC. A colorful gypsy caravan serves as an oasis for those for who long to roam-close-to-home while architect-designed eco sheds intertwine form and function, and rural huts are transformed into outdoor kitchen and dining spaces. SHED CHIC includes a series of sample cases highlighting the shed’s infinite uses, some technical guidelines for infrastructure, and a directory of shed companies, architects, decorating resources, etc. This detailed and wonderfully illustrated guide will inspire anyone interested in adding a shed to their property or redecorating an existing one with its vast array of design ideas."
