MY SHED IS A VERY VERY VERY FINE SHED…no, not really. At the moment, it’s a stark cedar box, above, with a shed roof — as in shed water, I now realize — but it will be a very fine shed when my son Max gets through with it. In fact, it will no longer be a shed; it will be a guest house/studio with its own deck and maybe even an outdoor shower.
There’s a pair of French doors and a casement window left behind by the previous owner of the house, which we’ll use, and I’ve got a folder of inspiration pics, below, collected from various sources.
Simple things, sheds. For some reason — memories of prehistoric shelters imbedded in our DNA? — their small size makes them very appealing. Though it’s twice the square footage of the tiny house written up recently in The New York Times. My shed will be a very fine palace by comparison.

Brings back memories of my aunt’s shed in Bridgehampton, the all time favorite place to weekend.
amazing cabins,i really like them
Inspiring photos! Love the large patio and outdoor shower but I wholeheartedly recommend screens for the windows and doors and a large ceiling fan for comfortable summer nights. Very rewarding project with huge potential!
