"Virginia Woolf had it right." -- Stylish Sheds and Elegant Hideaways: Big Ideas for Small Backyard Destinations by Debra Prinzing. That is just a lead in to discussing Woolf's idea of A Room of One's Own, which Prinzing thinks is a good one. But Prinzing proposes that the ideal room should be a shed. A very nice shed, mind you. Our new (old) house has the original 1912 garage in the back yard (as well as a functioning modern garage built into the hill at the side of the house). The old garage would barely be big enough for a car, even if it weren't landlocked. But it will make a perfect potting shed/retreat. Oh, I have big plans for that little shed. Hopefully Prinzing will give me some ideas.
