We've seen the increasing size of houses over the decades since the second world war. Then post-war houses were built on a 660 square footprint, and had three bedrooms. When I was young, we saw these houses in many neighbourhoods in St. Catharines, and seemed fine at the time. Now designer tool sheds seem as large as small houses.
It was a delight to see this tiny tool shed at the Maine Coastal Botanic Garden. It seems like the right size for one of those post-war houses. It would nestle in the back garden and be in scale with the house.
This one is leaning - it is the children's garden where whimsy reigns supreme - the fence posts are carved in cats and the entrance is marked by giant watering cans and tools.
