Hi out there,
Anyone have a second hand wooden shed or similar (good condition) on the Island of Crete, near the Kissamos area, we need to store stuff in,
Any sensible suggestions appreciated.

Ok - i noticed no one replyed so i thought id share a bit.
Over the last 10 years or so, my father in law has been making his small holdings more useful - without spending too much money. He has tried many alternatives
For tool sheds. Building a brick house , having a wooden frame built, too name but a few. For his needs (storage) the clear winner in terms of ease cost and space has been having a small freight container parked on land. At first it seemed cheap and nasty. But it never gives trouble, worth looking in to perhaps

I watched a programme on UK TV yesterday about converting shipping containers into garden rooms/sheds/offices.

If you can get hold of a cutting torch, you can easily make doorway and window openings - and you can paint inside and outside to make it look more attractive.

I bought a wooden shipping container from a haulage company who had moved some Brits to Greece about 14 years ago. I covered it with bitumen felt and it is still giving good service.

I love Kefalonia and feel privileged to have been able to live here for many years. I must check out the uses for pallets! I have a very nice compost heap made from pallets and also use them for decking.
