Id and Super Ego: I have transformed what was a bog standard timber frame shed using conflicting creative instincts. On the outside it has a sleek and minimal superstructure with tasteful, architecturally designed pretensions. This is contrasted by the interior where I regress to my basic instincts, furnishing it as grotesque man cave adorned with some mock Tudor cladding and oversized German beer mugs.
The exterior is clad in a combination of Coraline bitumen sheeting and roofing felt. The windows use opaque acrylic sheets. The interior mainly uses recycled timber accumulated from previous DIY jobs. I started work in September and then I could not walk into the shed to get at any tools or equipment. My first job was to build a pitched roof to house the roof box for our car and continued to develop the project through a mixture of design, improvisation and masculine zeal.
