My grandfather had a small potting shed attached to his garage. He stored most of his garden tools there along with a wooden cart he used to transport topsoil, compost and plants to the garden. I don’t have a shed but I often think about how I’d design one, especially the interior. This photograph is intriguing to me. I love the rustic architecture- exposed wooden beams, clapboard and old french doors. Aren’t the pendant light, pea gravel floor and metal chair great touches?
Note- Pea gravel can be purchased at house/garden centers. Anderson sells square awning windows (similar to those above) labeled A21’s.

Love the look, but the practical side of me thinks about not being able to push my chair away from the work bench because I’m on gravel — even though the gravel is also the coolest part of the design.
Linda- Always the tension in design…’form versus function.’ :)
