    Shed Features

    The most special feature of this shed is that it is mainly made from recycled and salvaged materials. Some of the structural wood has been used in four different structures over the past 30 years. It has a solar system for energy efficiency.

    At 22.5m2 it is very large and is used as my carpentry workshop as well as a garden room with a cosy corner. It has three 2m2 double glazed windows salvaged from a demolition site, a clay tile roof salvaged from a local roof renewal, and the floor, ceiling and walls are insulated with offcuts mainly sourced from the insulation of the warehouse at the Greenpeace headquarters in London.

    The floor covered with laminate flooring salvaged from a building site and the car boot of someone about to throw it away at the local dump. The cupboards are all salvaged from kitchen replacements.

    Other Shed info

    Pym House was once the largest deck access block of flats built and was demolished as part of the Angell Town regeneration scheme in 1996.

    I was the project manager for the demolition contract and saved the Pym House sign as a memento. It has since been used on three different sheds I have built as I moved.

    This shed is called Pym House 4. I built it mainly myself with paid help from my nephew and gardener. Before I worked as a project manager I was a carpenter and I was able to make a few special features including a finial I turned from a victorian baluster.
