Shed Information


The Shack is created from recycled and upcycled materials . It is 100% solar powered and is my home. I live completely offgrid , even doing my washing the old fashioned way with a copper dolly , tub and mangle. I have a lovely compost loo too.

The Shack is made from several old doors that I got free from a double glazing company, they are all old wooden doors which I attached to a base made of old railway sleepers the added a pitch roof which is insulated with some sheets of polystyrene I got from a demolition company then finished upholstery style with green leatherette and brass pins. I have a caravan which attaches to the Shack by a tunnel which enables me to disconnect it when I go away working in the summer. The caravan is my bedroom and kitchen and the Shack is my leisure space. I heat it with a woodburner I made from a defunct calor gas bottle.

Cost of shed purchase or build £250 to £499
