Continuing the tradition of constructing artful accessory buildings in Florida

Outfitting Your Historic Shed

Tampa Architectural Salvage

I took a detour on my way through Tampa today and passed by Schiller’s Architectural Salvage. Of course, I had to stop – who could resist? They have pretty much everything you need to properly finish out a Historic Shed™ outbuilding, as well components to build it with extra character. Here’s some of today’s finds:

Salvaged wood shutters can be used on the inside or outside of a Historic Shed outbuilding
12' or taller barn doors - probably a bit large for most shed projects as is, but wow!
12′ or taller barn doors – probably a bit large for most shed projects as is, but wow!
You can build your own outbuilding with these salvaged pole barn pieces. Or use parts for rustic posts inside or out.
Fancy Windows
Salvaged windows in elaborate configurations can be incorporated into a Historic Shed deisng.
Salavaged Wood Windows
If one of the larger windows don’t work, there’s bound to be another window you like. We incorporate salvaged wood window sashes like these whenever we can in our sheds.
Salvaged Shutter have so many uses from room dividers to actually shuttering openings.
Every working shed needs a pulley somewhere.
Salvaged doorknobs
Doorknobs! They make attractive racks for hanging coats, towels or tools. Or check out these 11 ideas for reusing door knobs.
Every shed should be well lit – and by more than a bare bulb.
Corbels can be incorporated into shed eaves, under window boxes or be used to support shelves inside.
Salvaged balustrade for a cozy cottage porch or for a creative reuse project.

I did also try to stop by to see Steve at his new shop for Wood Window Makeover across the street, but no luck. It just means I have an excuse to stop by again!
