Recycle your kitchen part 3

So here is the final version.  We didn’t buy any new cupboard carcasses or frontals.  Mervyn designed the whole thing himself re-siting the original cupboards to producing an uncluttered room with efficient use of the space.  The original water supply pipes were very complicated:  he moved the incoming supply which allowed him to relocate the sink, washing machine and dish washer to a different side of the room.  This then left space to construct a breakfast bar and shelving with oak from in Silverstone. David Green in Syresham re-wired the room for us.  We sourced a new sink and worktops (pitch pine)  from Towcester builders’ merchant


Shelter from the storm

Mervyn’s latest project has been to design and build a wet weather shelter for a local primary school. It was a tricky site on a slope and overhung by a tree with a Protection Order.  There is a seating area and a lockable shed for sports equipment.  The children are thrilled – using it as a play den on wet and sunny days.  All the wood was sourced from Linnells at Silverstone.
