Given that tire rubber is extremely durable, waterproof and takes quite a long time to degrade, why not use it as siding and roofing for a garden shed? This unique structure does just that, using discarded rubber tires to weatherproof a small garden dwelling.
The 10x26 foot garden structure features vertical windows recovered from an old shop, recycled car tire siding and roofing, repurposed stainless steel trays, and scrap wood used throughout. The rubber tires were found at a local garage and insulated with stone wool, making them both water and winter-proof. The interior walls are lined with an assortment of found wood, creating a patchwork of recycled materials.
