More Log Cabins Articles A student from a school in Somerset has won a prestigious award for an innovative garden creation.
Daniel Parsons received the Parker Hannifin Cup for Design and Technology after designing and building a garden shed out of half an old Ford Fiesta, viewfrompublishing.co.uk reported.
According to the website, the shed is now a fully functioning structure that Daniel's father Graham uses for storage at his mechanics workshop.
The award came as Wadham School held a special ceremony to celebrate the achievements of GCSE and A level students from the local Crewkerne and Ilminster area.
Among the attendees at the event was the Mayor of Crewkerne Councillor Neil Sturtivant, as well as headteachers and governors and members of the students' families.
News of the shed design comes after GreenBuildingPress.co.uk last week reported that the "Wild Garden", which will be shown at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2011, will feature a garden office built from a former shipping container with a "green roof and habitat walls".
