Tom & Mary Barchacky built this wonderfully attractive cordwood shed in the city of Green Bay, Wisconsin. It is a building that was an idea that morphed into a project that became a work of art.
The building is made from all repurposed and recycled materials. The door was made from used lumber, the window was found in an alley in Milwaukee, the shingles are recycled and reused.
The cordwood infill is red heart cedar and was free for the taking from a neighbor who does tree pruning.
Tom used a block and tackle “truss derrick” to raise his top plate and roof trusses.
The building has a pleasant appearance and blends in well with their property.
Backhome Magazine published an article on this wonderful garden shed and now they use the cover for advertising.
