Help

The economic crisis may have halted building schemes across the country, but it appears to have triggered a rather different sort of construction boom in our back gardens.

And increasingly it is women who are embracing a life working in sheds, or as they are now often called garden offices.

The BBC looks at the increasing number of people who now commute each day, down the garden path, as well as the exhibition Architects Build Small Spaces at the Victoria & Albert museum until 30 August.

David Sillito reports.
