Cowshed timbers up for Pilates

  • Comment

It took television presenter John Revell (formerly Virgin Radio's Johnny Boy) only six days to turn an unsightly cowshed into a Pilat studio for his wife and a carpentry workshop for himself. Revell, appropriately considering the use to which he was putting the building, clad it inside and out with softwood.He said: '

The project, which took just six days, used softwood cladding throughout and aside from being the most economic route, it was agreed to be the most attractive way of disguising what was once an ugly brick building.' Revell's enthusiasm for timber is reflected in the fact that he is a member of the Wood. for Good advisory board.His cowshed conversion form the basis of a series on the Discovery Channel, The House John Rebuilt.
