Ever wish that the wood you need for that new shed or deck would just, say, wash up on the beach? For those living on the coast of Kent (two hours south of London), that dream has come true. As you see in the CNN video report above, tons and tons of wood lost from a Russian cargo ship in the English channel has begun reaching shore — where it’s quickly loaded into vehicles by eager locals.
CNN says local law requires that everyone who scavenges the wood must fill out paperwork and wait a year before using the wood, but as you can see that doesn’t seem to phase those in need of project supplies. (And hell, it wouldn’t phase me, either.)
Here’s to some happy framing!
