I was invited to go take a look at a neighbours home the other day…and I noticed these barrels she had out on her beach…I was intrigued so headed over to take a look at the store they came from, The Weka Steam Company. They aren’t very high prim which is fab…and they are also free ! Two versions of the barrel huts are available…the one above is suitable to float on the water…
and this one is really designed for use on the land – but hey this is Second Life..so do whatever ! Fantastic details on these little homes..the door opens…windows inside…justttt enough room to maybe set up a stove in the winter…and some chairs or a couch..This one above is actually on my home land…love it ❤ Both varieties come in lots of different coloured woods..so youll be sure to find one that fits in with your current theme.
If you’re looking for something to whizz around on the water…why not grab one of these wee barrel boats ? Again, different toned woods are on offer…these really DO zooom around…so steady as you go !
