Converted unused shed into a cubby house

Converted unused shed into a cubby house



We converted a rat infested unused garden shed into a beautiful cubby house/Cafe. The first job was to clean out all of the rat carcasses and give the interior a good clean. We cut out 2 windows and used perspex instead of glass. We insulated the walls with batts and lined them and ceilings with cement sheeting ensuring that all sharp edges were covered. We levelled out the ground by laying a cement floor then covered with lino and lining. All corners and gaps were filled with no more gaps. Surfaces were then painted and decorated. It's been a huge hit with both kids and adults.

Re: Converted unused shed into a cubby house

Hello @cmignani


Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community. It's sensational to have you join us, and thank you for sharing your shed to cubby house conversion.


Thank you very much for posting those progress shots of the conversion. It's great to see that you really took the time to add a lot of detail to the cubby house. The laminated flooring, the green trim on the window, the extra shelving and of course the telescope I think nicely rounds off all the features of the conversion. I'm sure the cubby house will provide many hours of entertainment for your kids.


Again, thank you for sharing your shed to cubby house conversion.
