Customer and writer Matt Dojny of Festival of Earthly Delights:
"I was finding it difficult to get any writing done in my narrow railroad apartment (which, in addition to my wife, contains two children and a dog), and I had the idea to build a little nook of some sort in my tiny backyard. I did a bunch of research on small structures and came up with a basic design for an outhouse-sized shed. I shared my vision with my next-door neighbor, who is a genius builder, and he and I decided to take a trip to BIG to see if we could find some materials. We discovered a set of beautiful old windows, as well as a narrow glass door which fit our narrow specifications. My neighbor took my rudimentary design and made it awesome. (Once we determined that both windows wouldn't fit, he realized that one of the windows could be repurposed as a skylight.) I get up every day at five a.m. and am always excited to enter into my magical little shed. THANK YOU TO BIG REUSE FOR MAKING MY DREAMS COME TRUE."  Written in the shed The Paranoid Parent
