Shedworking is an inspirational illustrated handbook which no shedowner will want to be without. The book features shedworkers and shedbuilders from around the world who are leading the alternative workplace revolution, and looks at why shedworking is a greener way of working, improves work-life balance and accelerates your productivity. It is inspired by the author's Shedworking website which has been internationally acclaimed for the groundbreaking scale of its architectural coverage, featuring many previously unpublished images of garden offices and shedlike atmospheres, offices on roofs, sheds inside 'traditional' offices and on wheels, as well as cutting edge Le Corbusier designed models for the back garden, all-glass shed offices and buildings 'built' using living trees. Along the way it offers a whistle-stop tour of famous sheds from Pliny the Younger's summerhouse and the composing retreats of nineteenth century composers Grieg and Mahler to award-winning twenty-first century fantasy writer Neil Gaiman's gazebo. In short, Shedworking offers a manifesto for those wanting to change their working lives for the better and go to work in the garden.
