The chicken shed

Home to ideas and inspiration

The Chicken Shed is DO HQ. It’s where the writing happens.

DO started as a ‘Tuesday company’. We would meet here once a week on Tuesdays. It is in fact the old forge building on the farm. And it is rather humble. There is a small woodburner. It has a hotplate to boil a kettle. And there is just one electric radiator.

Over the years the team has grown. And so have the working days and the ideas and the projects that have come from them. Still, to this day, the Chicken Shed remains DO HQ.

These walls once forged steel. Now they forge ideas and inspiration for our community of DOers instead. We share the best of these in the Chicken Shed Chronicles, our weekly newsletter.

The DO Book co.

Useful and practical pocket guides for DOers

The DO Book Co. guides are inspirational and packed full of possibility. They are written by experts. DO Lectures speakers whose stories and ideas have encouraged others to go and DO. They are bite-sized and always useful. Each book focuses on the doing rather than the background theory. They inspire action, helping creative entrepreneurs, makers and DOers work smarter and create positive change. They are concise and beautifully crafted. They make the stuff you love easier to DO.

There are now over thirty books in the collection. They come in different languages and can be found in bookstores around the world. Plus they come in digital and audiobook formats too.
