Boulton and Paul revolving summer house disaster

Geoff Black has sent some very sad 'before' and 'after' photos and video of his lovely summerhouse which was demolished in the storm of 12 February. "I'm now trying to decide what to do," he says. "If you know of any good shed restorers in or near the Shrewsbury area who would like a challenging project, I would be pleased to hear about them.  It's insured, but I just don't know if it can be restored!" Get in touch with me or leave a comment if you have any advice or suggestions.
