It must be nice to build your own studio, rather than renting it from some crotchety Brooklyn landlord whose time spent in an unnamed Slavic military force makes him less than pleasant to deal with. But that's the trade-off between city and country living--ample creative stimulation vs. freedom and space.
To celebrate the latter, here are pictures of Philip R's "shudio," a shed-studio he built with family members in his backyard. The caption for his photo of the front-door deck reads "Just enough room for two chairs and a bottle of wine." Our fire escape has room for two asses and a bottle of wine--problem is, so do the five above and below it.
