Shed Sunday

Two sets of beach huts to be located at East Beach, Shoeburyness, Southend on Sea...  The walls are to incorporate recycled timber pallets bolted into timber frames and faced with tough translucent plastic sheeting to the outside with plywood to the inner face. The panels will be bolted into place on site and then walls then infilled with pebbles, gravel, glass chippings, shells and other recycled materials laid in drift layers visible through the plastic. The result will be walls that each differ from one another while utilising the materials indigenous to the beach. The prefabricated roofs are to be planted with sea hardened sedum.

  1. Seriously, the country is changing around us every day, yet the beach huts stay the same year in year out.
    I seriously believe they need bringing into the 20th century!
    The timber, the colour, the functionality makes them a very cheap item, yet their cost is enormous.
    Time to have a Shed Working competition on new designs for eco friends beach Buildings.
