The Shed at the bottom of our garden (now reassembled at C’s in a masterstroke of recycling) has been replaced by a somewhat grander Log Cabin. The difference is, apparently, that a Cabin is assembled from individual planks, slotted together like a giant game of Jenga, whereas a mere Shed comes in prefab panels. That’s what the marketing blurb said, at least – though it was the only way the constituent parts were going to come through our terraced house and into the garden. Anyway, said Log Cabin has not only inherited the already-wired power supply, it has proper insulation and double-glazing, and is therefore almost an Outdoor Room. And with just a light varnish over its light Nordic pine, it feels rather Scandinavian – which is why I was so pleased with this vast swathe of Swedish printed fabric (£10 from the Brighton Marina car boot sale), from which my mother is making curtains for it.
