    I need a sulking shed....

    Mrs. Tech_Guy has had enough of what used to be the spare bedroom now crammed from floor to ceiling with an assortment of IT equipment and I'm being relegated to fending for myself outside somewhere - probably in the back garden.

    I did look at having the garage converted into an office / day room but the £20k price tag put her off a bit!

    I've decided I want one of these at half the price:

    'Shed'



    Somehow I think I'm going to have to sing for my supper....

    You could change your name to: Tech 'Large Shed' Guy in homage to Arthur Two Sheds Jackson.

    If I had some land I'd stick something like this on it and I could live in it and become a real hippy geek.

    It used to be the case that planning wasn't needed for sheds and similar construction if it was under 50m³. unfortunately, this rather desirable shed is over 100m³

    My son in law got one for his office. It was a pig to assemble and cold and damp in winter, steaming in the summer. Have you got a loft you could convert?

    We've looked at that in the past but due to the way the roof is constructed (the type of trusses used) we would have to have the roof completely rebuilt in order to convert in into a room - way too expensive!

    You could build one yourself - as pointed out already, structures below a certain limit on height (including pitch of roof) / floorspace don't need planning permission, so come relativly cheaply. That "log cabin" doesn't look much beyond some strips of pine - rather little by way of insulation if you're going to be out there in the winter. I'd aim to build a wooden frame, then insulate it with straw bales and finish with plaster.
