    Shed Features

    The shed was made from reclaimed materials, timber milled on site, and mud.

    The total cost for the build was roughly $200.

    The geodesic dome is constructed from pallet wood with a 5 sided cedar shingle roof added on top.

    The dome surface was created by wrapping green vine maple, harvested from the forest, around the outside to create a lathe. Then an earth/lime plaster was applied. The inside of the dome was first covered with reclaimed peg board, and then earthen plastered.

    The dome is insulated with a mixture of reclaimed rigid foam, sheep wool & 'slip chip' (which is a mixture of wood shavings and clay slip)

    Other Shed info

    The project began with an idea: by reducing the size of a house, we actually increase the space we live in. Having a smaller home forces us outside and into nature. My aim was to make a well built cabin cheaply; using material destined for the landfill as much as possible. I feel that much of the western world has become a throw-away society. No longer do we repair our belongings when they wear out or break, but instead we thrown them away and buy new ones. I think knowledge of the value of materials is being lost. Building in this way also forces me to use techniques and materials I am not familiar with, so increases my ability and knowledge. I wanted the cabin to be small, with room enough for only a bed, desk and small wood stove for winter heat.
