This has been a project on the to do list for quite a while.
It is finally finished.
The love of my life had a little potting table out in the middle of the backyard under a tree, and yearned for her own potting shed.
Here were the requirements:
- Somewhere dry
- Light and airy
- Faces the north
- Has a big workbench area
- Must have storage shelving
The front plate holding up the rafters is an old hardwood window ledge from a very long window - ex-demolition.
The trellis came from my son's house when he replaced his pergola with a Queensland room.
The bench has an old plastic shallow sink for mixing potting mixes, and plant potting and the like, where spillage can be re-claimed.
The sink came out of an old photographic darkroom.
The left side of the bench has a re-cycled panel from a renovated kitchen. It has a stainless steel surface.
The shelf underneath has a suspended support in the middle, and uses a couple of over 100 year old hardwood boards from a demolition of a friend's shed.
The weather in these parts comes from the south and west, so it stays remarkably dry.
The customer was happy, and so am I.
