This project came as the result of not having enough storage space inside the summerhouse I built a while back.

 

A leftover area to the rear of the summerhouse was originally meant to take a clothes drier, although a washing line was used instead leaving this space free.

 

The same cladding was used, and in a similar way to the summerhouse itself I built everything here from scratch, including the doors and leaded glass lights.

 

 

 

The felt roof is lapped up into a slot in the wall cladding, and an interior shelf provides plenty of room for storing all items- paint, cement, planks of wood, gardening equipment etc.

 

It makes the most of what used to be a leftover space and provides secure storage in a quirky design!
