My "Studio"

Like many lampworkers I work from a shed in our back garden.  A member of the Frit Happens Forum christened hers the Shedio and this name has been adopted by many members.  Last Autumn we knocked down our old shed and my new Shedio was built:

Waiting for the Shedio to arrive

Here it is!

Plenty of storage space.

It is not so tidy now!  The current debate is whether to paint it or not.  I would like to go for a soft grey/green with maybe contrast on the trim but DH wants to let it weather.  It is tannalised so doesn't have to be treated yet.  I am happy to wait for a while and see if the new wood look mellows.
