Recycled summer house
« on: February 25, 2014, 11:14:44 am »
My friend gave me access to a load of pallets his company would just burn  ??? So I decided to make a summer house to rest my old bones in I still have a bit to do but so far it has only cost me £20  :thumbsup: I am also going to make some troughs as well  :tree:

That looks fantastic - I think I'll go for something a little smaller and easier for my first attempts at pallet re-use though!

Looks brilliant - I'm guessing you haven't valued your time in that? Must have taken you ages!

Don't wrestle with pigs, they will love it and you will just get all muddy.

Let go of who you are and become who you are meant to be.

...and then you'll be thinking of an extension.  Try gumtree and freecycle websites you can often get doors and windows, stone, pallets, wood all sorts of stuff for free. 


Well done though, man shed, now your life is complete  :D
