We were lucky enough to be given a summer house meant for a skip. The roof was rotten and needed to be replaced as was some of the timber on the sides, and all the glass was broken. We wanted to create a Beach House Style Summer House giving us a place to catch the last of the evening sun.
The roof, to include a new veranda, was replaced with recycled shed material and the rotten wood cut out of the sides and replaced with reclaimed wood. The glass was replaced with a recycled greenhouse glass and then it was all given a new paint job with the paint and the 2″ x 2″ roof timbers and felt being the only money we had to spend on the job all coming in under £100
As we had no furniture we created three new benches made from pallet crates and again sanding and painting to give a smooth finish.
Even the mirror, which was built to sell on our website was brought in and hung and looks so beautiful may well now be kept!
The next stage and finishing touch is to put a pallet floor in and of course, a wood burning stove to get rid of the offcuts!
