Living the cliche - one man and his (recycled) shed

Living the cliche – one man and his (recycled) shed

February 7, 2011  |  Uncategorized

a shed bought for housing an outhouses worth of stuff while our build was happening has now become permanent and extended to create a bike shed and wood store – so far so ordinary, except that all the timber apart from the cladding came as something else: the doors are some panelling from our old bathroom, the roof timbers were the frame the windows were delivered on, the roof sheets of ply left by the builders…Richard now has a workbench and three bicycles in there to spend many happy hours with.
Leaving aside the fact that elderly men with allotments have been doing this for years, buildings made from recycled timber are now winning awards:

so lets get those offcuts doing something useful rather than heading for landfill.
