Garden shed on timber base

A garden shed can free up space in your garage or shed for your next project and is a great way to keep all your garden tools and supplies in one place.

The project

 

Made space in my shed for tackling projects and doing things in by creating a new shed to house my gardening tools, lawn mower, cement mixer, all my packets of seeds, glyphosate and fertilisers.

 

The framing was built on concrete and then carried to the garden.

The framing then got concreted in with quick set mix. I propped it up to get it nice and level.

The joins in the decking were randomised for strength.

The shed was finally assembled in place. This photo was taken as soon as the shed was assembled, and there was a bit of a wind blowing so I secured it with rope. There are now eight L brackets bolting the shed sides onto the wood base, and the posts are concreted into the ground.
