My lockdown shed build

Jason_0-1652417276082.jpeg

 

In January 2020, I had the slab laid for my shed. The intention was to have my mates help me get this built over the next 12 months.

 

I had a big delivery of the steel, timber, and roof sheets turned up in early March, and I was ready to go. Then Covid happened, and I ended up having to do it all myself, except for the plumbing and electrical.

 

It took 2 and a bit years, but I got there.

Re: My lockdown shed build

What a sensational build, @Starkers_17! You must be over the moon with it.

 

I'm keen to hear more about how you'll use this space. It looks very functional at the moment, but are you considering fitting it out? With that amount of wall space, I can only imagine the trophy wall of tools you could create. Also, what's the white cabinetry down the end? It almost looks like archival sliding storage.

 

I can't wait to see what you do next, and many thanks for sharing.

Re: My lockdown shed build

Thanks @MitchellMc, I mostly build furniture with Timber and steel. Yes, they are the old compactice units from my office when we went digital with all the paperwork and were going to throw them out. Like many people I've always struggled to keep my tools in the correct place, so I've put cheap MDF drawers in them to at least have "a place for everything". The idea will be I'll start to build wall cabinets to organise the tools even better, I just want to spend a year or so making sure the set-up works for me as I build projects.

For me the best part is having your own bathroom that goes from being in an industrial area to something you'd see in many modern homes. Love it.

I believe this would be appropriate @Noyade.

Ahh...yes. He's salivating? Drooling?

Or he has an incompetent gag reflex. :smile:
