I found the above shed outside of town in Ushuaia, Argentina.
Very inspired!!!

This next shed is a new one, alongside an antique shop somewhere
south of Lake Champlain, in NYS.

Below is my idea of the most desirable design for a shed.
This one measures 10' X 15' without the overhang.
This speaks to me of sheds from the south.
A whole family might have lived here.
The porch roof would keep the sun off while shuckin' peas.
I love the porch floor flush with the ground.

Nice detail of the live edge boards on the above shed.
The double doors on one end are great, they can be opened up in summer.
This shed is alongside NE Cayuga Lake.
I paddle past it frequently.

Here's a nifty little shed out behind huge, eccentric
Fort Anne Antiques, in NYS.
It appears to be constructed of a lot of
repurposed pieces.

And this lovely little roadside shed
was spotted along Rt. 7,
near Charlotte, VT.

Isn't the door a pretty color!
And the door frame is inspiring.

Below, the 'California' from www.just-sheds.com, built on an island off Vancouver.
It's been modified with a higher roof line to accommodate a sleeping loft.
On the back side is a full wall of opaque corrugated fiberglass, which floods the cabin with light.
I like their use of rebar on the deck railing, very economical and easy to work with.
Plus it's attractive and unobtrusive.
The 180sf cabin can be seen on www.apartmenttherapy.com/ by clicking here.
The couple created this Canadian retreat for about $7,000.

Below is a photo of a beach shop somewhere in Florida.
A friend was there in February and stumbled upon this.
Loads of character!
