When we started building we soon discovered that wood was very expensive. Even though the main building material used in Libyan houses is cement and blocks there is still a need for wood to make things such as scaffolding, support for windows and archways and many other uses. So we started collecting and stockpiling scrap wood. We came across some old wooden rolling shutters and they were added to the wood pile. We will use the wood for something... eventually...
Recently, while I was surfing the net, reading one of my favorites since we started building - Design Sponge, I came across this really cool chaise lounge designed by uhuru . 'Ah ha!' I shouted, 'I think we can put some of the wood to use!'
How about if we turn this:
I don't like the way they made the metal part on the bottom, which is supposed to emulate a Coney Island roller coaster - I'll design something simpler and more pleasing to the eye. But I think it can be done. It will be perfect for the garden. What do you think?
