The Garden Is Where The Most Inspired Thoughts Come From
Because the location of most summerhouses are away from the house this normally means that they tend to be quieter and more relaxing than in the house with all the activity normally going on. This can help you to become more creative and for you to look at problems of the world in a different way. By taking a little time, maybe with a glass or two of your favourite tipple, unexpected solutions may appear in your ‘old grey matter’.
Where as many people have installed electrics and possibly a phone line in their summer building, this can sometimes work against them with the interruptions breaking the line of thought. Just by relaxing and gazing at your garden and surroundings you can help your brain trigger unusual ideas. So it can be seen that your garden building can be therapeutic and also improve your health. Hard to believe but true, you just need to try it.
Obviously you do need a little space for you to sit down and relax so if it is in a mess now the time to have a good clear out. Anything which you are keeping ‘just in case’ and has been in there for more than 2 years – be brutal and – throw it out. If you have any shiplap cladding spare then it’s always a good idea to hang onto that. By doing this the building will become more welcoming for your ideas to germinate. It can also help in your hobby giving you space to set up in this quiet space. And at the end of the day you can just leave all your hobby items where they are for next time. No worrying about having to clear up so when you want to come down again you are ready to go. This you find is a great feeling.
Depending on the size you can sometimes share your hobby with others. My wife does this and her friends come around most Wednesdays and they share their hobby of card making. Being in a quiet environment helps them to come up with new ideas and also ideas evolve from them talking together. The building, which my wife has, is designed as a shiplap potting shed but the design of the shed with an half glass roof means that a great of light floods into the building making it easy on the eyes with the brightness.
The Independent also take this view when they also suggested that these buildings can get the creative juices flowing. They stated that summer houses these days are more than just a storage facility and more of an all rounder and this includes using them as an office with a view or as a summerhouse, but in this instance they should be made with shiplap cladding for the best effect. They claimed that employees can actually improve their productivity by working from home and will be happier in this sort of environment.
Over the years there have been many great artists, writers and thinkers who have used their garden buildings to help them be creative. These include existentialist philosopher Martin Heidegger, who I have never heard of, among many others. Rapper Snoop Doog wrote some of his hit songs in his garden shed and the legendary Harley Davidson motorbikes were first assembled in one.
They certainly come a long way since then. Henry Moore, the sculptor, was enthused with his that he had many in his garden and Lord Savile, who was given the responsibility of compiling a report on the Bloody Sunday Massacre also used his for this purpose. This just goes to show that the ‘common’ garden shed can lord it over most other garden buildings as being the most versatile, certainly the shiplap and loglap clad are the most popular. It’s no wonder that we British love them.
