What did you do to the walls to make it look old fashioned like that?

I would do this in a heartbeat if I wasn’t 1,500 miles away!

I’m also very interesting to know how the walls went in. The structure showing through makes it look so lovely and old-worldish. Curious if the panels were inset, or if more ‘faux’ supports were added to show the structure. Thanks!

The space in between the timbers is filled in with either brick, for the wealthy folk, or wattle and daub, the more traditional technique.

The Wikipedia entry on it is pretty good. Just search wattle and daub.

That little timber frame however is really cool, I’ll be looking up their books for sure. The smaller scale and relative easy joinery would make for a great DIY project or tiny home.

Excellent post.

Definitely a unique looking shed, with the use of a shake roof and other features, makes it look much older than it really is. Looks great!
