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.
