Product description

The whimsical. Like a treehouse, everyone is enchanted by the idea of having a garden shed--one's very own private retreat. Whether a room of one's own for quiet, much needed personal time away from the family, a hobbyist's den, or an extra play space for the children, these picturesque structures can accommodate any purpose. The shed--that charming cottage-like outbuilding--is coming into its own, and this detailed and wonderfully illustrated guide will inspire anyone interested in adding a shed to their home or redecorating an existing one with its vast array of design ideas. Whether you want a personal getaway, a studio for creative endeavors, a home office, or a traditional potting shed, this book is sure to inspire with details about planning, building, and decorating sheds. Included are a series of sample cases highlighting the multiple uses possible along with wonderful interior and exterior photographs.
