Shedquarters

Here's a pic of the cabin I'm in the process of converting to off-grid. Right now, it's emptied out, ready for a deep clean, followed by insulation and lining, then flooring. I need to do a bit more research on the insulation, but bought a roll of flooring from the boot sale recently for a great price. To the right of the cabin is a good sized water butt with tap, running rain water from the roof, which has been there since the cabin was put up a few years ago now. Also needing doing when the weather gets back to sunny is a new coat of painty stuff on the outside, but I'm keeping it blue. It sits half way up the garden on the left, tucked away in its own little space; it gets taken over a bit by the hops, and there is a big arched wooden seat with a roof opposite it. It's close to the firepit and the area where I intend to build my clay oven over the next few weeks.
Watch this space................

this looks lovely and a real exciting project! Down my garden, near the chicken house and accessed by steps onto old decking, sits the cutest little wendy type house, about 7'x 4', full of chicken feed and fleece. I so want to make it my bolt hole but over the years the beech tree behind it has reached about 40', making it so dark and gloomy inside. I would drop my stitches...Good luck with the conversion!

What a beautiful place. You can tell just looking at it that the cabin has an old soul...
