Recycling Building Materials – Shabby Shack Project

Recycling Building Materials

Peter Jameson from Marlborough built this beautiful shabby shack for his daughter Abby using totally recycled and reclaimed materials. Building started in February 2015 and the ‘Tiny House’ welcomed it’s first guests in December 2015. The cabin style accommodation sleeps 2 adults in a loft style sleeping platform with a double bed and a roof that opens to the sky.

Abby's Shabby Shack Built From Recycled Materials

Building a Tiny House

With sustainable and eco-friendly living in mind, Peter sourced the beautiful French doors and two lead light windows from our huge collection of reclaimed building materials.

The Tiny House Movement and George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces have helped fuel a shift towards constructing smaller homes, and more people are reusing and recycling building materials for their projects. Musgroves has been salvaging building materials since the 1960s, and we have managed to rescue many beautiful heritage materials and architectural features from some of Canterbury’s most iconic buildings.
