Thursday posts are sponsored by Cabin Master: garden offices and studios to fit any size garden. Ideal for the eco-minded shedworker with a penchant for water, Harry Dwyer and Charlie Waller of Aircraft Workshop have created what they claim is the world's first houseboat made entirely of recycled cardboard. The aim is to make use of otherwise wasted cardboard found in and around the site of their workshop, transforming it into a fully seafaring vessel, capable of sleeping two.

We've reported on various motorised sheds over the years, but Kevin Nicks from Chipping Norton claims his is the fastest, an upcycled VW Passat which can do nearly 90mph thanks to its V6 engine. New Zealand winery Cloudy Bay will be back at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show again this year with this Sam Ovens-designed garden.
And this is what last year's Gold-winning Cloudy Bay garden with garden office looked like, below. Continuing our look at this year's shedworkingish elements at the 2016 Chelsea Flower Show, The Harrods Eccentric British Garden is designed by Diarmuid Gavin, no stranger to shedworking designs who readers will remember from his 2007 design.
Enviromate is a platform which allows you to buy and sell surplus building materials and has recently seen an influx of DIY enthusiasts who have discovered supplies they can buy for cut-down ‘trade' prices as well as making cash selling surplus materials from their own projects.
It's Chiropractic Awareness Week and this year’s campaign focuses on shedworking, flexible working, and the impact that working remotely can have on back health. Work was cited as a trigger of back or neck pain by nearly a fifth of sufferers, but despite this, more than a quarter of workers admit to taking no proactive measures to protect their back while at work, whether at home or in an office. The survey revealed that sitting in the same position for long periods of time was the most common cause of back or neck pain in the workplace, with over two fifths of workers who have suffered from back or neck pain citing this as a contributing factor.
The BCA has developed a series of simple exercises to improve posture and help prevent back pain on its site here. Bear in mind that this materials list could vary considerably, depending on the materials you use and the dimensions of any shed you make. Confirm that the shutterboards are square by measuring the diagonals and ensuring they are equal.
Cut four lengths of 44x69mm reinforcing, mitring the ends, and attach them to the perimeter of the floor sheet. Give the entire underside a good couple of coats of the waterproof sealer to protect it against any damp. You can cut the fibre-cement sheet with a craft knife, scoring it deeply and then carefully flexing it to break it free. Repeat the process for the front wall and then mark out the door – which is 800x1600mm high and starts 85mm from the bottom (that’s to take in the 16mm shutter board floor and the 44x69mm reinforcing.
Cross-brace the door with two lengths of 44×44 – centering these at 145mm from the top and bottom, and they will have the hinges attached to them.
When driving in the nails to attach the cross-bracings, make sure you space them so that they don’t match the holes for the hinges’ attachment bolts.
Now you can be really cunning… position the door within the front wall cutout, position the hinges, and pre-drill the holes for the attachment bolts. Hammer in extra nails around the hinge to reinforce the joint between the sheets and their framework. Ensure that the hinges are centred over the junction between the door and the wall, as shown.
Attach it to the floor using the bolts; use bolts because the shed is only 250mm from the wall, and one can’t drive in nails to secure the rear wall to the floor. Keep the roof in place during rough winds by using four lengths of 22x69mm SA pine, attached as shown (the short bridging pieces are cut from excess 22x69mm) to the roof’s peak, and then the sides.
Now it’s simply a case of clamping the roofing sheets in place and attaching them – along the lower roof beam (the one next to the wall – using either roofing nails with waterproof capping, or, as I did, drilling holes for 50mm stainless-steel screws.
Shed final closed – The final result… not too big, but ideal for garden tools and other gardening bits and pieces. Shed final inside – Depending on the number of shelves you install, there is room for quite a lot of garden tools, sprays, mower, ladder and so on.

Product Description Arrow Storage Shed Milford 10 x 12 Coated Steel Sheds This backyard storage building is big enough to keep your patio furniture, garden tools, and accessories safe from the elements with this Milford storage shed. According to the Morning Advertiser, it will be a 4.6% ABV American Pale Ale made with Cascade and Citra hops which will be produced in Sweden and imported into the UK. Theywill be showcasing the logic-defying boat for the first time at Grand Designs Live on April 30.
The boat, currently being assembled in London's historic docklands will contain two bunks, an electric motor, kitchen and all the amenities one would expect to find in a houseboat, in cardboard. Using only surplus materials like double-glazed windows, timber and plasterboard that would have otherwise gone into landfill, he set about building a fantastic home office in his garden, all for just £150.
The campaign is a result of consumer research conducted by the British Chiropractic Association who say that a fifth of people working remotely on a computer do so from the sofa, and more than one in ten admit working from their bed. An easy way to ensure that you get away from your desk is to set a loud alarm in another room. Neaten up the edges if necessary and then trim the door by 5-6mm on one side and the top – or bottom. The best way to do this is drill the first hole on the frame side, and push a bolt into it, then drill a second hole on the door side, and shove a bolt into that. Make sure the base is level and add shims if necessary, then place the floor on the bricks; again checking that it is absolutely level.
These peak support beams are set back about 50mm from the peak – to that the capping can be secured properly.
All EasyShed components feature EdgeSAFE® rolled safety edges for ease of handling during assembly. Our high quality sheds provide practical work space to enjoy your hobbies, pastimes and DIY, and are hand built to order in our Isle of Wight workshops. Extra strength Deep ribbed corrugated wall and roofing ensures added strength and security. If you're in the area on April 28, tiny house expert Bill Rockhill (pictured) will talk about his tiny house building experience. As well as all the interior facilities, Harry and Charlie will include everything required for a fully functional boating experience such as fenders, rubbing strips, funnels, wheelhouse, portholes and even an anchor. If your local Mica does not stock exactly what you need they will be able to order it for you or suggest an alternative product or a reputable source.
Bear in mind that the walls go around the floor, and their corner posts rest on the corners of the floor.
This is because the jigsaw blade is only a millimetre or so wide, and your door needs a clearance of about 2.5-3mm on each edge if it to be able to open and close properly.
Add, shown here, a length of 22x44mm SA pine that stands proud of the door jamb by 10mm – as a doorstop to stop the door swinging right through. We only use joinery grade Scandinavian Redwood, the best material to withstand everyday use in the demanding British climate. Now repeat all of this on the one sheet of exterior ply (which – just to confuse you – is actually the interior wall of the shed). Precision engineered from modern PVC coated galvanised steel which is approximately 50% thicker,with twice the paint thickness of most comparable products ensuring an extremely rigid and sturdy construction.
