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!
