Greenish antics – frugal, growing, trying and sharing

Good news…. (but was bit knackering…) February 3, 2008

I have a shed!!! (in pieces).  For now, unless the wind gets up much more here tonight.  Holding out for the freecycle karma worked out and a local couple co-incidentally also involved with the NCT that we are stuck into.  They wanted to get rid of one that was in the house they had moved into, and it’s a nice little begger that should be perfick for some chickens hopefully.

shed 1 - before  shed 2 - before

 It did the traditional freecycle journey of death back on the car roof (a la greenhouse frame, lotsa wood, wheelbarrow, chicken house!!!) but made it.  Bloody heavy.  Four main panels, a floor section plus two roof sections.  Plus 12 paving slabs also blagged from aforementioned couple and brought home too that should form the base.  It should go somewhere at the bottom section of grass (pic from when we moved in coming when I find it!).  I need to take up the rough grass, level and put down some sand or something then re-construct with a few fixey-pieces.  Also need to treat the wood somehow as Chicks get offended by roof-felt apparently (or creosote?)
