Following on from our Upcycled Farm Shop here in Glastonbury, we are now tackling another Upcycled Building Project for Middlewick.
5 Years ago Jill purchased a used building that she discovered on ebay. The timber framed structure had been damaged in the floods and what could be salvaged was taken down. It was hexagonal yoga studio that had been out on the Somerset Levels.
With the building came drawings and all the parts were numbered so it was a giant jigsaw puzzle.
We picked up the building with the help of our friend George and his tractor. A few trips back and forth with the timber parts.
Friends helped and we stored it all in the barn until we figured out the next part.
We were granted planning permission to put the building in our back field to be used as an additional group space here at Middlewick. It is going to go behind our current Function/Group room with great views.
Now with the help of some friends we are hoping to get the building back on its feet for Autumn 2019.
This is what it looked like before it was taken down. We will be modifying it slightly so we will keep you updated with the progress.
