This distinctly retro garden shed is the Hermit' Cabin, designed by Mats Theselius has and Arvesund Tradesign. It is built from wood from old Swedish barns, and " recycles not only materials but also history and emotions."
Since 2001 they have shipped and installed cabins all over the world.
They design their houses to resemble barns: " The vision is that the Barn House should look just like a barn when its not used and all doors and windows are covered. Just like a natural element in the landscape." ::Arvesund
What a lovely idea. The New York Times recently wrote about how the iconic barns of Iowa are disappearing; perhaps these guys should move to Iowa. ::New York Times
