Gardenhouse / Showroom
In this unique gardenhouse with a fireplace, pointed roof, wooden cladding and loft, we display various application of reclaimed wood boards.
The special design of Douglas wood in the details of building structures has given a special attention. The barn was built in a traditional way by craftsmen using mortise and tenon joints, wooden ceiling cover, classical brick wall cover, detailed corner finish and half-, round window frames.
The outdoor area of Buitenleven Second Life Wood is more than 2000 m2, which provides enough place for storing a large amount of reclaimed wood. Every boards are sorted and placed in a way that the wood could be easily reached for loading and unloading. Private parking and a forklift are both available.
Every guests of ours are welcome to enjoy a cup of coffee with us in the garden house, while the children can play at our nice and spacious playground outside.
