Writer?s Cabin - a Solution to Every Problem

When outdoors writer, Kerrin Winter Churchill moved home to care for
her ageing mother, she found she didn?t have enough space for her
professional life. ?There was no room for my considerable research
materials or a place for me to quietly write? says Churchill. Not
wanting to rent office space, Churchill was further stymied by new
zoning laws. ?Our property was too narrow to build an addition. I
really was stuck with what I had.?

Early one summer, while pulling the lawnmower out of the old garden
shed, Churchill had an epiphany. ?Maybe I could have a shed of my
own for my books and magazines,? she thought. ?The more I tried to
shake off the idea as Nuts the more I realized what a perfect
solution it really was.?

Churchill began searching for a shed dealer. ?Most of the companies
offered standard products delivered to your door already nailed
together. I knew that wasn?t going to work for me. Some of the Amish
built sheds were pretty ? she admits adding, ?But the prices were
beyond my reach. I had to stay within a strict budget but I?m a snob
about what I want. I felt like Goldilocks and the Three Bears? laughs
Churchill. ?Some companies were too plain, some were too expensive
and then, I found the company that was just right.?

That company was ?Just a Shed?, located in Medina with a second
location in Canal Fulton, Ohio. ?I drove down there and talked to the
owner and he got right to work, designing a building with what he
calls standard options. My shed would have book shelves, a work
bench, a loft, special doors, three windows and a really cute cupola
that nicely completes the look. It was perfect, what I wanted,
affordable and no hassle. They even offered to pull the city permit
for me.?, says Churchill.

Within two weeks, the materials needed to build a 12x16 gambrel roof-
style barn with a cupola were driven to Churchill?s door. ?In one
day, they completely built the shed except for the roof. The next
morning brought pouring rain but the Just a Shed guys worked
steadily, finishing the job on schedule?, says the writer.

Since then, Churchill has painted the building in her old champion
kennel colors of brown and green. Since zoning does not permit
electric hardwiring, an extension runs from the house back to the
cabin and a wood stove adds warmth. Completing the project is a split
rail fence lined in wire that is attached to a doggy door on the side
of the building so Kerrin?s dogs can be with her at all times.
Happily back at work, Churchill is writing again full time. ?I?ve
always known that every problem has a solution. When I told my
friends that I was going to turn a garden shed into my office they
thought I was crazy but now they think I?m brilliant. It?s my own
little Walden?s Pond. My husband and I call it the ?Writer?s Cabin?
but you know what? It?s really just a shed - and I absolutely love it.?
