Shower and soon to be Sauna



It’s been a full on week in preparations for the mid-summer yoga retreat and new for the event is an inside out shower.

Constructed like a barrel and made of oak the shower cubicle is open to the sky while the cabin will house a sauna hopefully by the Autumn. Until the wood burning stove is in place the shower is heated by gas. I’ve still got the finishing touches to do but its been great to get the shower running for this weekend. My son made the barrel formers ages ago and we’ve enjoyed putting together a structure from all the stuff I’ve been collecting since we got here. The slate roof is left over from our garden room extension and were recycled from a house renovation in Devon. The oak has been knocking around the yard for a couple of years and most of the timber for the frame came from a London roof. I saved them from a bonfire! The old oak door was a real find from the village and it’s hinges are said to over 200 years old. I’ll post some more pictures when it’s finished.
