Summerhouse


Summerhouse

This was my winter project - using scrap wooden boards that to my horror where being binned, I salvaged them, and created something I've always wanted in my garden... a room of my own, a summerhouse.

Thanks Stickitoffee, couldn't believe it myself when I seen them walking the planks into a massive skip. So I put a stop to it, and came up with a plan. Just hope it's still standing after the winds haha.

It looks beautiful, it is unbelievable what sometimes gets thrown away. If this gets seen you could market it - the first re-cycled summer house?

I did wonder how you managed to build it in the winter when we had such terrible weather!?

You're right, it snowed on 4 occasions, we had heavy winds, downpours of rain and -10, but to me... it's still better than sitting inside watching TV all day. Admittedly, it took me 4 months (End of Dec until now, April) to get this far. I'm just working on the inside now and the glass has been ordered, hopefully it will be finished within the next few weeks. Ill post some of the challenging weather pictures in a minute.

Gorgeous. I admire you for doing what I always used to do before it became fashionable - recycle. It looks lovely - well done you.
