Garden sheds: great storage idea or contained junkyard? The secret is to have a plan.

This article from Better Homes and Gardens has plenty of useful tips, including how you can recycle things like old wooden stools as storage racks.


Sometimes, all you need to save space and be practical is some know-how and a few off-cuts of timber.


Even sections of old drainpipe can be cut and used to your tools in order.

The Ultimate Green Build? A Coffee Shop Built Entirely of Recycled Materials

Have you ever wondered if it would be possible to build some premises entirely of recycled materials? Well, here’s one. It’s the “Noorderparkbar” Coffee Shop and it’s in the Netherlands.

It was built by Overtreders W entirely from materials purchased on the Dutch version of e-bay.

The roof is made entirely of old skylights.

There are giant barn-like shutters surrounding the pavilion, which close at the end of the day, making it look like a giant container.

You can find further information and more pictures here.
