Call That A Shed? This Is A Shed (House)!

Call That A Shed? This Is A Shed (House)!

Live in Randwick, Sydney? Then you may have seen this 74m² shed-turned-house sitting inconspicuously at the end of your street. It’s been around since 1890 and served a multitude of purposes, including a blacksmiths, bike repairer, artist’s studio and warehouse. Now, its insides have been redesigned to accommodate people living in it.

It was purchased in 2003 by a local and given the all-star treatment. The idea was to make it as eco-friendly as possible — solar panels supplement its power requirements, but thanks to its big doors (for airflow) and concrete floors (heat retention), it has no need for air conditioning.

Always been a fan of places with high ceilings, and this is no exception. It looks a little low to the ground though… and without fly screens you may find yourself eaten alive during the summer.
