Re: Studio and shed in the making

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @megstar. It's awesome to have you join us, and many thanks for your questions.

 

Let me mention @DIYgals, alerting them to your kind comment. Hopefully, they can answer your question about their insulation and what filled the void between the slab and the sheeting.

 

Are you looking to improve a shed you currently have? We'd encourage you to share your project with us as I'm sure our knowledgeable members would like to assist.

 

Please let us know anytime you need assistance. We're here to help.

Re: Lining workshop wall

Thanks very much @megstar !

 

We have used a product called air cell on the ceiling of the shed and studio and on the walls we are using Earthwool.

 

We poured the cement floor after the shed had been erected for a number of reasons, one being to avoid any gaps between the floor and the sheets. There are products you can get that have been made for this such as Vermaseal, not sure if you can install as an after thought though. Could be something worth looking into?

 

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Re: Studio and shed in the making

Thanks @VG ! The studio which contains a bathroom  10m * 4.5m, to the eaves it is 3m and the pitch of the roof is 35 degrees.  The bathroom is 2m X 4.5m, within that we have found there is plenty of space for shower, toilet, wall hung sink and space for a washing machine. Will post photos when we have finished this part. 

The shed we have built is exactly the same, just with a smaller footprint (7.5 x 4.5m).  

 

Our original plan was to build one large structure and then divide between the shed and studio, however council would not allow. 

 

Let me know if you have any other questions.

@DIYgals 

Awesome.. Thanks Lauren.. I will probably need Sarah's details.. and i will need to chat to @MitchellMc  more. :smile:

The shed that I'm thinking of creating is approx 7 x 6 .. but thinking of flat roof.. I'm guessing you got the materials from Bunnings..?

@VG  The shed cladding is a NEXTEEL product, the steel C section was ordered through an Australian Steel supplier here in Adelaide.

Re: Studio and Shed in the Making

I so wish my concrete slab had of been laid post shed erection. The termit proofing put in post build has already moved. Snakes etc will become my constant fear i suspect. I'm on 6 acres with a winter creek at the other end of block. The last shed i had put in was build prior to concrete slab and was secure as, minimal dust termites etc in a goldmining town of constant fine red dust, my shed was secure.
