Functional Flooring, CHEAP

This idea occurred to me out of necessity. We built an add on to our shed to keep our dirt bikes and riding lawn mower. It’s functional but had a dirt floor that made everything a mess and was always being drug indoors or getting caked up on our shoes. I priced garage type flooring online and from sears and it ridiculously expensive. Obviously I’m not spending $250-$500 dollars on an outdoor lean to that cost $100.00 to build. So I bought a roll of cheap roofing – $40.00 at Lowes and covered the area. It took 20min to put down and it’s perfect. I even have left over. It worked so well I pulled out my left over shingles from my house and painted them and layed them out to make an area for my BBQ pit. I love it! I also laid shingles and then covered them with ceadar chips to make a pathway that weeds won’t grow under… And underneath the fence so I don’t have to weed eat there anymore, i plan on covering that with cedar chips also. All in all it’s been a wonderful discovery. I recommend checking your local city website a lot of times you can pick up left over roofing and shingles for free or very cheap. Here are some pictures of different projects I have done with them.
