Love this book, it is absolutely beautiful...both pictures and text are absolute art. I loved it so much, I made a video review of it (my first) :)...at Gardener to Farmer.

The writing is focused on the lives of the (obscenely rich) owners rather than on practical information such as the difficulties in renovating older structures, building complex foundations, etc. Even ignoring the expense of most of the designs (I can see how innovative ideas can be inspiring even if mere mortals could never afford them), some of them are just silly, and photos often focus on stacks of attractive books (or displays of chicken chotchkes so large they would entirely fill MOST The writing is focused on the lives of the (obscenely rich) owners rather than on practical information such as the difficulties in renovating older structures, building complex foundations, etc. Even ignoring the expense of most of the designs (I can see how innovative ideas can be inspiring even if mere mortals could never afford them), some of them are just silly, and photos often focus on stacks of attractive books (or displays of chicken chotchkes so large they would entirely fill MOST people's sheds) rather than architectural details. So if you're looking for porn, flip through and ignore the text; if you're looking for the Sunday Style section, you'll enjoy it; if you want to actually build something, skip it. ...more

This book is definitely more about elegant hideaways than stylish sheds (at least for me!) In regard to my tiny house building - I walked away from this book with three questions about my space: 1) What is my mission for this space? 2) What are my "must haves" in my home? 3) In 1 - 2 sentences, what is my inspiration for my tiny home?
I also feel inspired to ask others - What are you glad you did (or didn't) choose for your home design? What were your challenges? What advice would you give to This book is definitely more about elegant hideaways than stylish sheds (at least for me!)

The featured selections were intersting and inspiring, and the photography was gorgeous. However, the text was largely superfluous. The writing was decent, but trite, and the stories uninteresting. The text added very little to the photos. The book would have been much better served with about 2/3 of the text removed, leaving only what was relevant. It's worth checking out, but I recommend skimming the text, or skipping it altogether (you won't miss much).

I wouldn't describe many of the buildings featured as sheds, but this was a fun book. I got a few ideas for the small shed/studio I want in our backyard, but for the most part I think the sheds featured are more elaborate (and expensive) than I'm ready to tackle.

Cool photos - completely unrealistic goals for our project! Nice inspiration for creating your own space.

Great coffee table book with very cool cottages and hideaways. Loved flipping through with a cup of tea and imagining one day having a little getaway of my own...

Design porn, the stuff of fantasies.

Got a great idea for a desk with built in bookshelves, because there are never, ever enough bookshelves.

Honestly, what fantasies -- and yet -- something about a little "get away" a "play house." I've always loved little spaces -- this is a big-time fantasy book!

Beautifully photographed, and interesting. The buildings are hardly SHEDS however--very spacious and elegant, indeed!

I loved this book! I've always wanted a "playhouse" out in my garden or in nature. Lots of styles are represented. Something for everyone!
