Unique Construction Ideas
The team at Dave Barton Construction are constantly looking for ways in which to improve their services by researching the best products and materials currently available on the market. Doing so has allowed the team to build a happy portfolio of customers that are only too happy to recommend our services to family and friends.
However, this latest research was a little more fun as the team wanted to find out what ‘alternative’ materials are available and how they have been used in renovation projects.
If you are looking for some unique construction ideas then check out the below products that will actually provide you with a totally unique project.
Glow in The Dark Driveway
Do you want the coolest looking driveway in England? Look no further! This glow in the dark driveway is made using Photoluminescent stones and can make any driveway look both scary and magical.
The Photoluminescent stones (also known as a glow-stone) is a synthetic aggregate that contains a photoluminescent pigment that, after becoming chemically excited, will cause a stunning glow in the dark effect.
These glow-stones can be added to a resin mix and used to create a resin bond / bound surface.
These glow-stones are more commonly used in fish tanks and aquariums. Could these stones be used in a Dave Barton project? Watch this space!
Shipping Container Garden Home
If you are looking for something totally unique, contemporary and guaranteed to add the wow-factor to any property why not look at renovating an old shipping container? It may seem like a crazy idea at first but the more you think about it, the more it actually makes sense!
Having a garden home or extension can often be quite an expensive affair however, it doesn’t have to be, especially if you let your creative juices take over.

This type of ‘quirky living’ is becoming more and more popular due to the savings in cost, renovation time and a pre-built frame to work with. The small size makes these tiny garden homes a green construction method especially as solar panels, rain harvesting systems and green insulation can also be added to the project.
Should you be interested in a project like this why not give Dave Barton Construction a call and see what options are available.
