    Shed Features

    I've upcycled all the wood, windows, doors, for my summer house from skips and businesses that were throwing it away. I also upcycled different liquor bottles and make them into lamps ,so the one wall which is 2.5 metres by .5 metres is made completely out of old jack Daniels and other liquor bottles , so when the sun shines through it it lights up different bottle colours. Below that window/wall I have a big door ( which WAS my aunties neighbours shed roof) which opens out onto decking made from old scaffold boards and the wall on the other side of house folds down to become its own decking which is extended further by more scaffold boards . It has oak flooring inside which I salvage from a tip in Oswestry I have tried to use all things that people and businesses were throwing away.

    Other Shed info

    I'm a father of 2 children but for the past 5 years I've been a stay at home dad with them whilst my wife goes to work as a carer. When my little girl was ready for school I was hoping to get a job... That didnt work out so I started my own job in the garden, I've created a place where we can be as a family and a place to work get creative and have friends over... It's multifunctional and multipurpose ... Me and the kids are going to sleep in it when the weather gets warmer. I'm most proud of the fact that I have created this house with no training or working with wood before and all of the material was taken from skips and other places for NO cash... I've only spent money on the felt for the roof and furniture from charity shop some 1970s style benches.
