The picture here shows the shed and house but without the added cladding for the shed.
The shed is the weather proof shell. Keeping a large verandah or deck area around the house. This detached shell also helps stop moisture movement. For example if there are leaks in a conventional roof it can mean damage to the internal lining boards and this means difficult repair work.
With the two objects not touching unseen moisture movement, which later surprises, is not very likely.
A shed is normally either too cold or hot, but this double shell means lots of shade and air movement, via the louvres or hoppers, in the summer, and a layer that can decreases air movement around the inner house for warmer winters. In effect Very Large Scale Double Glazing.The dates on these posts are a bit rough but around this time we had the shed put up for us by a mob I will *never* recommend to anyone. live n learn
