Nao's shed. part 1

.
Finally Nao {that's my hazubando by the way} has decided to build himself a shed, a little shed the same size as mine 4 x 6ft. Today works on the build began...
Making a kind of flat base was pretty difficult but I helped by making useful suggestions whilst doing absolutely nothing.


Plimsoll checked the level of the base by laying her belly on it.
After a bit of blood sweat and near tears, we manage to erect the sides. {well Obviously Nao did the hard work, and I just supported}

This shed ended up being completely the wrong layout than what we had ordered! It was meant to be like mine with the door at the end, but we thought it looked quite nice actually.
We felt a few drops of rain, so Nao stuck the roof on asap.



This is now the view from my shed! we will have to learn sign language, well, the sign for a 'cuppa', and, 'what's for dinner', maybe.
Stay tuned for more updates of Nao's shed progress...I'm very excited and feeling a tiny bit jealous already.

  1. Looks great, good luck with the rest of it! Wish I had a shed to build, or at least garden to put one in!

  2. Perhaps you could learn semaphore or rig up a little pulley system washing line to attach notes to and send them from shed to shed...just a thought x

  3. Oh serious shed envy!... and coming from someone who has shed in the title of her blog - I should have envy no? Can't wait to see what delights he will furnish it with. For communication? Wave a flag with a letter T on it for a cuppa. No? oh well maybe shout. Lou xx

  9. Hopefully Nao will enjoy his shed just as much as we did from here!

    I also love your shed, although I have a sewingroom for myself.

  12. so cool. but- has the ground beneath the shed been compacted? might there be the chance that it could sink a bit once everything is finished?

  19. And a shed for Plimsoll next?
    But Artemis I'm a bit worried Nao's shed will be a bit dark in Winter with the window there, I see why it's not the one you ordered, anyway, hope it works out well, does already look cosy.

  20. Hello Madeleine,

    Yes we agree, but not much we can do. I think Nao is planning a window in the door perhaps?

    Its actually not that dark inside as our garden gets alot of sun.

    No doubt Plimsoll will be greatful to have the flat to herself! x

  21. Well, when you get your nice house with ample garden you'll be able to re-orientate the shed.... or expand. I want one like a summer house with gingham curtains and a full harvest of pumpkins on the verandah, etc, etc

  22. So fun to have 2 sheds - I definitely think a paper-cup and string communications system is in order. I wonder if I can cheekily ask where you ordered the shed from - I'm thinking to install a shed in the garden as a hide-out for our kids and I love your's and Naos as they have big windows but the one's I've seen online don't seem such nice shapes. A point int he right direction would be most, most appreciated!
