The coal bunker
Needing a break from all that walling, I started to play with some of the scraps of greyboard lying around. I need a hidey-hole for the electronics – am using two short six plug switched units. Decided that a flat-topped coal bunker would do the trick, placed just outside the side entrance to the house for easy use on rainy days when you’re the one sent out for more fuel.
Sizing up the job
Although the controls are small, they still need a bunker of unusual size, so if we put a dividing wall in (needed to help support the card sides) and imagine we have coal at one end and storage for the smaller gardening tools at the other it might look OK. It has the added benefit of giving something of interest to look at from both front and back views of the side path.
It will be a sealed unit that can be lifted up to access the electrics, though am thinking of putting plant pots etc on the flat top.
The path itself will be raised up slightly to allow any stray wiring to sit comfortably underneath.
