A remarkable shedlike structure from Richard Kroeker Design , a shed built from unwanted phone books with help from students at the Dalhousie University Department of Architecture. Here's what Richard says about the build: The books form a ready made, insulated building module held in place with sheet metal angles normally used as drywall bead material. Once tensioned, the phone books form a stable wall into which additional layers can be easily screwed. The roof joists are also made of laminated phone books. The finished structure becomes a kind of time capsule, recording the names and numbers of community members. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Monday posts are sponsored by garden2office, the Swedish garden office specialists.
