Old wood turns new Shed.

by Paulo Areia
(Coimbra, Portugal)

I've made this design considering old/used wood to provide walls and some sustainability to the design concept. The idea is to re-use the wood to build this new shed and incorporate a modern aproach towards inside living. A sliding panel door with glass works better in small spaces and allows ventilation.

The small window on the other facade enables a new view or different perspective of the outside or inside enviroment. A solar panel panel can be place on the roof working as a energy suplier in case you need so!

Enjoy it in every space you can...easy to build and also can be built together creating a small house - if considered the needs of each individual.

Recycled Wood!
by: Paul Hoffman

Recycling wood is IMO a great way to give a shed a classic look, save some money, and "go green".

I recycled a 35 year old redwood fence into two rustic sheds, but cutting off the bottom foot of rotten wood, and designing my sheds to make use of the resulting sound 5' lengths.

Using modern lumber for structural strength and recycled wood for the exterior is an approach I really like.
