Upcycling still seems to be all the rage and why not? It’s a great way to find new life for objects that would otherwise simply be taking up space. But what some of those inspiring Pinterest posts don’t tell you, is that some of these projects take a certain level of skill, handiness, and specialized tools. Thankfully with this project, a master carpenter is going to be involved.
The project kicked off with long term client asking GGD to help out with repurposing an old, unused hot tub. If you look around the web, upcycled hot tubs tend to be turned into koi ponds. In this case, the client wanted to turn it into a birdcage. The tub is installed outside so there where additional considerations to make the project viable. It needed to be covered and have room for heaters. Also, it needed to be able to be broken down to store for bad weather with disturbing the birds as little as possible.
What we came up with was an “X” shaped, support with central and quadrant support posts. Four individual cages, capable of independent support, are fitted into the main unit but are able to be removed as intact cages. All of this fits on top of the existing hot tub and under a new gazebo type roof. So now we have a conceptual. Pretty niffy idea and we’re looking forward to seeing the potential finished project.
