We’ve talked it over many times – each time coming to a firm conclusion the opposite or at least diffent to the last time. But now we are definitely and finally decided. More or less as soon as Jonathan is home for good in a week or so’s time, he’ll start work on a new studio/shop for the Hebridean Woolshed. The scandinavian log-style garden cabin we put up (it cost us about £1250 all told!) back in 2003 as a general-purpose garden shop really just isn’t up to the job: not big enough, no enough protection from the weather, from damp and insects; and above all it just looks NAFF!
The new shop will still be in the style of a shed, but more like a traditional Hebridean outbuilding (no I don’t mean falling down and surrounded by old cars!), but solidly built, and at least 50% bigger than the existing shed. It will be positioned so that its outline will be softened with with trees and shrubs.
