The lean-to itself was created by James Parker and instructions on how to make the construction was shown in the May issue of the magazine. My brief was basically to create the construction into a 1950's lean-to scene.
The lean-to as a 1950's Utility Room
The lean-to as a 1950's Porch
Whilst researching for this project, I was fascinated to see from adverts in various vintage 1950's magazines, that lean-to's had a variety of uses such as greenhouse, conservatory as well as a utility room or porch. Hence, the reason why I chose to create two different uses ie. a utility room and a porch. The porch is meant to be a back porch where all kinds of clutter would often accumulate but some houses did have a lean-to as their front porch.
