I love corrugated iron and especially love the old buildings – often nearly falling down, scattered around Australia – all part of our history. It is such a versatile product – but in early days was used to build sheds and for the roofing of houses and other buildings. I have quite a collection of photos of these old buildings.
There certainly are some stories in these buildings, and I am sure many are documented by the local history groups. Building such as these are scattered all around the Australian landscape.
Corrugated iron is becoming more popular in modern buildings – I’ve seen houses and particularly, fences made of this material and I personally would love to live in a house made with corrugated iron – though not in the same manner as some fo the images above.
I will make a point of taking photos of more modern uses of corrugated iron – which I might add is much better quality than that used in some of the buildings above.
I’d like to see corrugated iron as a feature – and not necessarily used for the total build.
The material is available at many sources these days, Bunnings, Stratco, and many other companies and is even available on Gumtree.
I am not sure how I can use it in my present address, but will consider some options. I would like a garden bed, but as I am considering moving, it is not high on my priority list at the moment.
I will just keep taking photos.
