Prayer Shed Colman

Less than £100

Built entirely out of firewood. It's a prayer shed, used several times a day by its builder/owner, a Methodist Minister. It has a stained glass window in honour of a 7th Century Saint, Colman, Bishop of Lindisfarne. (Nothing to do with mustard!). Although hidden, as it forms the back wall, is an old up and over garage door!

This shed was built according to a plan that only existed in my mind. Using wood given to me by a workman mending fences, initially for the house fireplace, the most useful tools were a spirit level, a tape measure, and an electric saw. I think building it saved me from a breakdown due to stress, and the prayers said in it now continue to keep me sane, especially when candlelit, late at night. Its progress posted on Facebook generated a lot of interest. The stained glass window was a commission from an artist friend to my ideas, but his design. It's on the south facing wall so is beautiful when the sun shines. There's a deeper tale to tell, but space prevents me here, you get the idea!
