‘Silas’ is the most recent arrival in the glamping field. Re-invented from a humble grain store, he provides a one-of-a-kind seating area. An integrated fire pit will keep you warm and you can even barbeque in here.
Silas started life as a humble grain silo at Gourd’s Farm, just a hop, skip and a jump away from his new abode here at The Old Forge.
With a passion for all things galvanised, I couldn’t help but notice that this particular silo appeared to be in retirement on the farm. The cogs started turning in my mind to come up with a new lease of life for him; an observatory? a bar? a new Glamping unit?
Silas spent rather too long sitting without purpose at the top of our field until being winched into position for his transformation to evolve. A gradual process ensued, inspired by the miscellany that I wanted to upcycle.
What we have created is a beautifully simple and intimate seating area making the most of the panorama that surrounds it. Silas will give you shelter from the elements and has four removable shutters to cope with all prevailing weathers. He can be used as a BBQ or fire pit.
