Thursdays Special – Recycled

The word prompt from Lost in Translation: Recycled

Many years ago, when my daughters were small, I built a playhouse for them. The playhouse is totally made from recycled building materials. Now-a-days it has my tools and other building bits and pieces, nails, screws bolts, paint, plumbing and electrical parts etc.

The door came from a Shell Service Station where I worked. When they modernised the old building, I grabbed the door to the office that has two way glass

The roof comes from the first house I built that we lived in for a few years. Here is a bit about that house.

The walls are from the Jackadgery Hall. I helped build a new extension on the Hall and these timbers are from the wall that was removed. The timber is from around 1930 or thereabouts.

The windows are from the old house also. They were bought from a bloke who saw me looking at windows in an auction place in town. He said he had some windows he had to get rid of (he carted them from Brisbane to Grafton when he moved house. His wife said he had to get rid of them lol)

The stumps the building is sitting on are from trees from my place. The wooden front step was from a mates place. He didn’t want the off cuts from his place.
That is the story of the recycled building, which has been also re-purposed.

March Square – number 14

Time to pop back into the Grafton Cathedral for #MarchSquare

Three stained glass window circles in a square. If I paid more attention they would be three circles in three circles in a square. A bit of crap cropping…bugger

Odd Balls are those photos that don’t fit into any category or are photos that have been taken which give rise to “Why?”
