At first I felt at odds with the idea of having my own space, it felt too luxurious for me, I was used to making do, but then I started to get very excited about it. My family were also excited about having the best room in the house back.
So we shopped around and looked around shed heaven. There was a lot to consider and lots of web adverts to look at. But you can’t beat meeting a real builder you like, and seeing a real building you like. We went to meet Trevor Naylor who runs Crusoe Garden Rooms in Nottingham and we liked him and we liked his buildings.
Here’s some photos of the studio that Trevor, and his team Jack and Floyd built.
Fish and chips and vinegar
Coffee and KitKats
Cedar…lots and lots of cedar, Canadian red cedar from the Pacific North West, warm-hued and heady resin-scented cedar.
Feel very lucky indeed.
I now have a shed for the ‘shed in my head’ *
