The folks at The Secrets of Shed Building are running a design competition to design a Porch Shed. Here’s the design brief:
A porch, balcony, verandah or deck at the entrance to a shed forms the transition between the garden and the interior space. In the winter months it is a spot to get shelter from the rain while you fumble for your keys, in the summer months it becomes a glorious place to sit outside enjoying the garden or lazing in your hammock with a long cool drink.
Porch designs come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes so use your imagination to come up with the ultimate porch for a shed, it may be a simple classic design or a complete wrap around, it could be very clean lines or richly decorated the choice is yours.
To enter the competition just check the rules and details at The Secrets of Shed Building and then submit your design before May 15, 2010. Winners will be announced on June 3, 2010 which coincides with the launch of Alex Johnson’s book, Shedworking – The Alternative Workplace Revolution. Alex runs on of my favorite tiny space blogs, Shedworking.
The top three competitors will receive signed copies of Alex’s book and the overall winner will win an iPod Nano. Here are two samples from the competition. Learn more about the Porch Shed Competition.
