Backyard Business

Wood Worker’s Shop

Way back when I was starting I wrote about the tendency of owners of homes needing rejuvenation  to use design ideas pinched from suburban track houses.  A particular target for this type of application is the phony pediment, as if by its addition a tired old house can be made to fit in with the local aesthetic.   If asked,  an architect might look for more authentic inspiration, which appears to have happened in this backyard  wood worker’s shop.  The pediment marks the double (not garage) doors and ignites curiosity.  A nice way to attract positive attention to home hobby/small business.
