Bike Shed in Bedminster

This client wanted a bespoke bike shed designed and built for a small garden and asked for it to be made out of as many recycled materials as possible.

It needed to accommodate two bikes, some garden furniture and garden tools.

We based it on a design from a picture the client found on the John Lewis website – so we matched it as closely as possible.

We were able to get a very cheap but huge recycled pallet from Bristol Wood Recycling Project which had very thick timber perfect for the vertical and horizontal parts of the main frame.

The client’s friend had some leftover tongue and groove boards which were ideal for cladding the outside of the shed.

The green roof and guttering were added at a later point, again using second hand materials, and went on to produce a mass of flowers and seedums.
