I bought these simple bird houses from home bargains they were only £3.99 in blue or green I would stick to three of the same colour, obviously if your building is very long use 4 o5 to create impact for a fraction of the cost of other bird house. Be prepared though they don’t last forever I bought one around 2 years ago and the roof started coming off I just nailed it on, so feel free to choose something more substantial like the following.
Multi Award Winning Interior Designer Kerrie Griffin shows us how you can turn an old shed or stables in this case into accomodation.
Initially, this was a stable block that cost £2500 I brought the roof overlay out and built it down to create a rectangle giving more space inside. I removed the partitions and the stables doors and fitted with some factory seconds klober doors heavily reduced a few years ago, but then stopped the project due to personal circumstances.
Plasterboard £7 plus vat per sheet needed 7
Plasterboard fitter £170 inc 2 sheets of plasterboard

What do you do on a rainy Sunday if you are an Interior Designer?
I have always been creative from a very young age, making things and creating new looks ideas and even chopping up and adding to clothing to make unique pieces.
Today I'm doing a spot of indoor gardening because I am desperate to get outside to do some planning. I have already mowed the lawn last week on a dry day!. The mower was not happy to come out in February but I like a well-manicured garden.
