When we moved into our house it lacks a garage and the existing old shed barely fit the lawnmower. So from April this year I started work on it. I am happy to report except for the power and lighting (coming this Friday) its now finished.

very happy to have a place to store, protect and maintain my fishing and boating gear.09B6EE0D-FC8F-40D6-A6BB-7F8CE5290C2D.jpeg.3303cfa259b89f1333490238e19fcd89.jpegA383F221-03AE-4AC4-B28A-F0FC7B217811.jpeg.34086781b7bcfd6ef4280bcd81940980.jpeg

Got to love putting a garden shed together, don't know about yours, but the one I did years ago was a nightmare.

I hear you. It’s a big job. Number of hours assembly probably 36+. You have to take your time and you need the right tools. You need two+ people a few times, particularly final assembly.

Looks like the as much fun you can have without using dynamite 😜

Still not sure why you did that 🤔

You can never have to many sheds imo!

 

Could have used that for when your in the dog house with the missus :whistling:🤣

I would rather teach Kindergarten, then put up a kit shed.

Because I can teach, but I am hopeless using tools to construct anything.:biggrinthumb:

Me too, though I have taught myself and upped my construction skill level from ‘useless’ to ‘mediocre’

Looks like you've done a good job there flatheadluke.

You can't beat those pre-fab sheds. As a tradie myself, you can't even buy the materials for the price of a kit.

Thanks GH. It’s sad but true. I would have preferred a timber shed built buy a local tradie but the price of timber is ridiculous at the moment. I ordered the shed just in time, but because of COVID 19 it took 6 weeks to ship and the cost has gone up 30% since I bought it.

I built a easy shed similar size on my own it was not easy doing it on my own, but between YouTube and their instructions I got it done in a weekend and its water tight and the door closed well.

Love a well organised Shed, looks great good job

Thanks Dieter,

i found a double brick retaining wall filled with concrete to tackle. My sledgehammer is only 8lbs I thought about upsizing you 14lbs but was worried about breaking nearby windows.

its all out of my system now!
