This is a shed that I built from 80% recycled material. Mostly left over stuff from building remodeling ie: framing is from a Christmas tree display. The Windows are from a police station,the metal roof is from a chicken barn. I built it facing south.So on a sunny day in the winter it will get 60 with no heat on. It is well insulated and has water and electricity. I use a oil filled heater and place it in the window to let the sun help heat the oil

love the “built-in” water system.
oil-filled heater? heating the oil? It sounds unique

Do the police know you have their windows? Let’s hope not.
Amazing how well it does just from the windows!

That is a great set up, nothing wrong with reusing materials, in fact I think there is something very right in that. Love the shed!
