Timber rack roofing

Just a quick post tonight to share the joy of recycling a roller door into a roof!  [Share this to all your buddies who are into The War on Waste.]

You’ve seen the construction of the mighty timber rack…  this afternoon we rolled up a ‘stripped’ rollerdoor (no longer functional or repairable), put it on the roof structure and tek-screwed it down… simple as that…

… instant roof!

Christoph put all the screws in and was justifiably proud of his efforts!

Permaculture moral of the story – observe the inherent qualities of an object, not just the label society puts on it.   A ‘dead’ roller door isn’t scrap metal – it’s a perfectly fine 2.5 x 4 m piece of steel just waiting to be re-purposed!
