Shed Of The Year: a boat on the roof

The shed roof is made from a clinker built boat that is 14ft long and 7ft wide. It was an inshore fishing boat made between 1900 and 1910 from Cardigan Bay.

 It was placed on a frame of 4 telegraph poles with cross beams. Once in place the walls were filled in using aluminium framed windows from a 1940s caravan and single glazed windows from our 400 year old farm house. 

Other walls are made of wattle and daub, a mixture of mud, clay, and straw stuck onto a woven frame. 

The rear of the shed is clad in old corrugated metal sheet painted in black bitumen.
