Welcome to my website! I started the site as a blog documenting the construction of a garden office/workshop.
I did the design and building work myself, with some help on the heavy lifting, and it took just over a year from conception to completion.
The designs were done in Sketchup, and the building is constructed with the materials typically used in commercially available garden rooms: structurally insulated panels, cedar cladding, ‘mini plinths’ footings and epdm rubber on the roof.
I am also interested in woodworking with hand tools, and particularly in the historical aspects of this trade. Much of this site is devoted to this topic.
I hope you enjoy the website.
