The original Nappy Hut was a shed bought by the owners from a DIY store, the shed was then cut and adapted to the allocated space.
And although the Nappy Hut had served its purpose for changing the enfants' nappies, it didn't efficiently maximize the functionality of the space and it was starting to look tired.
So my vision for the new Nappy Hut, was to create something bright, airy, references to nature and tranquillity but also have an instant "WOW Factor".
And with that in mind, i selected Pinewood with its beautiful wood grain which seem to forfil the brief.
Summary of construction
The walls were built with 3x2 timbers and clad with 150mm x 20mm Pinewood boards which were glued and pin.
The roof was made up of 4x2 timbers which were double-up because of the long 2 metre span.
The Pinewood boards were fitted vertically and the same pattern repeated on the door.
The architrave, skirting and door stop were made from the same material and all the edges were rounded-over with a router,
this softened the hard edges and added another layer of detail.
The fascia boards, architrave and skirting were added to the design to make it feel more like a house rather than a shed.
