My First Mini House


Member • wood river, IL madison


This building is a makeshift mini house / shed / workshop. Materials were primarily acquired free - craigslist, roadside junk, or bartered for. The cost of this project in dollars is about one hundred and fifty dollars for tools and materials. fifteen hours bartered for pallets and screws/paint. Winter's coming fast so hopefully it will get a roof and much caulking applied soon. . sliding deck was influenced by a picture i saw on yahoo of a sliding roof for a shed planetarium. Roof trusses were built out of a frame pallets that were previously used for storage of granite counter tops...also free items off craigslist. An old chimney from a tear down was painted black and placed on top for ventilation. Storm door and double insulated windows were also acquired free on craigslist.
