Features

I have called my shed The Hive because it looks a bit like one but i also like to think of it as a place for being busy, like bees. I have reused many materials from previous projects such as my daughters play house (they grew out of it), next doors pagoda that was falling apart, an old bunk bed and a hammock stand. It sits right next to the jungle and has two windows on the rear wall that looks out into the jungle, great for looking at the monkeys. I have installed air conditioning because at the best of times it is 30 degrees and humidity is very high in Brunei. It is a great place to potter, fix and create things. The WiFi signal is good from the house and there is a cordless doorbell so I can be called from inside the house. My favourite features are the workbench mounted hoover for cleaning up sawdust and my fridge for keeping my 'silicone" cool.

Other info

It took me the best part of a year to build by myself and most of it was made using only hand tools as I didn't want to disturb the neighbours too much, a good work out too.
