: A remembrance of days gone by; this Cottage Shop original will surely enhance any landscape. Adorned with Western Red Cedar Shingles and completely functional, the Cedar bucket would actually draw water if there were any below it.
At an overall height of around eight feet and a diameter of four feet, this Do It Yourself wishing well is not your typical flimsy backyard decoration or lawn ornament, but a crafted piece of art that will surely enhance your landscape and become the topic of conversation. This Jamaica Cottage Shop original is remembrance of days gone by. Complete with a wooden pine bucket, the whole unit would draw water if there were any below it. The round base sits on pressure treated lumber. The framing and trim is all rough sawn pine and hemlock. The roof is fully trimmed with a fascia and shadow board. The complete structure is covered with western red cedar shingles. This charming wishing well is the perfect addition to any yard and can be functional or simply for decoration. Hand made in Vermont, from native rough sawn hemlock and pine lumber, the pre-cut kit includes all fastening hardware, roofing, and step-by-step plans.
Offered as a frame only kit, complete pre-cut kit, or step-by-step plans nationwide, our wishing well might be just what you need to make your dreams come true. If you live within our Northeast delivery area, consider purchasing a design fully assembled and delivered to your prepared site. Rugged post and beam techniques, passed down through the centuries, are used to construct this sturdy picturesque structure, reminiscent of old New England. All of our woodsheds, storage sheds, cottages and utility enclosures are built of the finest Vermont lumber and handcrafted for long life and durability. New England weather can really put a wood garden shed or cottage to the test, and Jamaica Cottage Shop’s products have proven to stand the test of time and strength.
