Re-Clutter your Life (#Terraintober Immersion marker Project) Part 27 – Charcoal Burners Hut

This Part 27 of a series of a fair few posts, Part 1 (link here) gives an overview and the philosophy applied to the series – cheap, simple and fun. In a previous blog post in thsi series (Re-Clutter your Life (#Terraintober Immersion marker Project) Part 21 – Charcoal Burner) we did a Charcoal Burner, The Charcoal burners would work in shifts and monitor the charcoal burner from a hut, often with a window toward the burner so they could observe it during the night. They came in many different shapes but I found this one inspiration and decided to use this one as a basis for my hut (form somewhere in Sweden, but not sure where exactly). Search on Google using the word “Kolarkoja” and you will find a lot of different huts.

I used this as my base inspiration, key items being the door, a roof above it, the window, the chimney and it all being covered with earth and growth.
I thought I could use one of the Nespresso type of capsules for this project
Cut off the top and clean the inside.
I found it a little bit too tall so cut if off a little bit
Then glued it back and glued it down on a base
Then I used some modelling clay to build up the earth around the hut
Making a few details by gluing coffee stirrers on pieces of nylon tiles or cardboard.
Slowly build up a shape I wanted with a door, a window, a pile of fire wood and a chimney for the burner inside. I also made a slightly different roof than the original picture.
Starting to look good with a little bit of sand
Simple painting the wood as old in grey then added some tufts and static grass, happy!

Spend is still £24.42 in total.

Tomorrow, we will do something else…

/ Hope that was of some interest
