Ben's Shed

I designed the workshop to the proportions of my grandfather's old workbench which I inherited after my father died. I added pegboard walls for displaying my grandfathers tools - all of which he had made.

My grandfather was a carpenter and extraordinarily talented, he should have been a cabinet maker.

I recall many summers in my early teens, being packed off for two weeks to go and stay with my grandparents in Norfolk and spending the entire time with him in his workshop.

Other info

The design was led by numerous very specific criteria: The size of my grandfathers workbench, the size and number of glass units (which I had obtained for free from a mis-order to a building site), and the wish to not only store  but to display the wonderful tools (most of which my grandfather had made  indeed some we made together when I was 10).

The final briefing constraint was the wish to build the buildings under Permitted Development.
