It’s like our shed winner Tim as it’s octagonal but like the PLot thickens as it’s also made with some pallets

Two artists have beaten the credit crunch by building a gallery completely out of rubbish.

German designers Folke Koebberling and Martin Kaltwasser saved a fortune by using waste wood to create the gallery in the Cambridgeshire countryside.

Volunteers helped to build the two-storey octagonal space in just six weeks using old doors, windows, furniture and school desks donated by the local community.

Timber, including 500 pallets, was contributed by locals and more than 40 volunteers helped to turn the rubbish into the building, which comes complete with a greenhouse conservatory.
