A Man and his Shed(s)

If previous years are anything to go by, sometime in the next 24 hours I am going to witness an interchange along the following lines:
  • Radio/TV/Television Announcement - "and for the first day of spring we are expecting a very pleasant temperature of..."
  • Outburst from (American) David - it's not spring! it's still 3 weeks until equinox. Why do Australians think that seasons coincide with calendar months?
Why indeed? In any event, David is eagerly anticipating the warmer weather so that he can return to his "office" down at the beach. Not that he has been slacking off over winter. While I was in America in July, David was building a ramp under the house to his workshop. While he was at it, he installed a shed for overflow from his workshop. Here is the undercover ramp:

The shed is the corrugated section in the middle of the picture. Here is the inside:

And lest you think this state of organisation is preternaturally neat. Just check out his main workshop:

With standards like this, there is no way I am showing photos of my studio anytime soon.

Well it looks more obsessive compulsive if you ask me and what is with all the white? Hmm maybe it is a dash of Hospital starkness or minimalist Urbano style. Maybe some surf, car or girly pics could lower the tone enough to call it a workshop!

Have you seen the film Sleeping with the Enemy? Thats all I am saying!

Please do show your studio - I need to convince my equally neat husband that the state of mine ( which unfortunatley is actually our dining room that he hasn't been able to eat in for months) is actually perfectly normal not evidence of a deranged mind. (Oh and while you are at it can we have proof of the size of a 'normal' fabric stash?!)

That is a nice shed. Maybe he can make the rounds and help us all clean up our areas.

I can't imagine getting it cluttered w/sawdust,etc! But, nice to look at and nice to walk into. I bet some real creativity goes on there....yes?
