One of our previous projects involved working with Tangled Maze in Creswick.
Their wonderful property already has some beautiful buildings, a hedge maze and a mini golf course.
We helped them build a space for and indoor skating rink and a laser tag arena – which are both now in use.
Take a look as some photos below.

5 Shed-Like Homes to Inspire You
- 1. North Carolina Residence.
This stunningly simple home almost looks like an extended shipping container or carport. Resting on large concrete bricks in the forests of North Carolina, the simplicity of the building lends it grace & majesty. The large windows maximise the natural lighting, relying on the dense forest for privacy.
2. 2. London Garden Shed Studio.
This incredible & tiny space was converted from an old garden shed in London. To compensate for the lack of space, a bed is hidden beneath the floor boards. The space is used as an art and living space.
3. 3. Wyoming Barn.
This barn looks old and unassuming – in fact, it’s a recent build made from reclaimed wood. The modest external hides a very luxurious and detailed internal. It also makes fantastic use of its height with a large window onto an expansive panorama of the mountains.
4. 4. 9 Steps.
This beautiful building is tucked away at Mt Buffalo. (We’re biased because we helped build it. More on that here.) This simple structure is, in many ways, a shed. Made from steel with a straightforward layout, the building fits in wonderfully with its surrounds.
The place can be rented for those looking to try out the tree-change lifestyle.
5. 5. The Double Shed, Chile.
This interesting home is comprised of two large shed-like buildings linked by barn-style doors. It’s unique & memorable.

How to make hanging horse treats.
Hanging treats can be great for giving your horse something interesting and tasty to do when they’re stuck in a small barn.
This recipe is super easy and your horses will love it.
Ingredients: 1 cup of flour, 2 cups of molasses, 500 grams of grain, half a cup of raisins.
- Combine the ingredients in a bowl. Mix together until the grain is even covered.
- Let the mixture stand for an hour so the moisture of the molasses soaks into the grain.
- Pack the mixture into trays or roll into firm bowls. Use a chopstick to poke a hole through treat.
- Bake at 180 degrees Celsius for 15 – 20 minutes.
- Remove and cool. You can now thread twine through the treat and hang them up.
Keep it interesting: If there’s a flavour you know your horse loves, add it to the mixture. Some grated apple or carrot will give your treat an extra hit of flavour.
