This was a shed I completely rebuilt during lockdown using materials which I salvaged from skips, front yards and were being sold second hand.
I needed somewhere where I could warm up on my allotment, cook and wash grubby hands and put my feet up! As a total novice at DIY this has taught me so many new skills from fitting windows to plumbing in sinks, making kitchen cabinets, storage spaces and even a sofa from scrap wood. It has been a fantastic project and helped keep me sane during lockdown hence the name Slice of Sanity. It's a lovely space which I can relax in after a hard days digging and every time I see it no matter how overwhelmed with life I feel, it always brings a smile and reminds me that anything is possible. As this is on an allotment i had many doubters who questioned a 34 year old woman with a drill, but now I get many members of the public walking by who comment on how lovely it looks and how it brings them a smile.
It's just an amazing feeling to know I've created this space and it's entirely from salvaged materials, a true space to find a slice of sanity before returning to the chaos of a COVID world!
