ReWined Barrel Creations has a new home!! Five years in the making, this studio has wine barrel accents throughout and is intended to showcase wine barrel products AND a low impact green building technique known as COB construction. Cob is a mixture of clay, straw, water and sand and can be sculpted to create an earth friendly and very insulative building material.
Completion is expected in summer 2022, so check back for updates!
This weird corner presented a challenge hanging this barrel cabinet but we got er dun! A smart LED light is concealled in the barrel bottom over the copper sink. The top cabinet is lockable.
Barrels are used as kitchen cabinets with a maple counter top. The hot water tank is located in the barrel under the sink. A small L shaped cob seating area is heated by the flue gases from the wood stove/heater.
This is a barrel top used a doors for a small cabinet behind the sink.
Some highlights from a most excellent journey
How do you move 600 pound fir logs- with a couple of dollies of course!! Moving equipment and material into the back yard was a pain in the arse, but this move of 18 logs was particularly challenging. Nobody got hurt!!
