OH's new shed or should i call it 'new abode' ?

41 comments


Its up! we have been busy (well OH has!) tidying, digging , trimming and cementing and getting ready for his new workshop/shed to arrive. Peter has been like a little boy, all excited (like Christmas is coming) and finally his new ‘baby’ has arrived.


1.The old ‘shed’ with hidden subsidence.

2.It’s down, these are the roof joists, worth keeping says OH !

3.Preparing the new base.


4.New base finished and drying.

5.The new workshop, think you will agree it looks smart.

5.Doors open and waiting to be re-filled. (thats a new blog. LOL) think a single bed will fit nicely along the back wall, dont you? :)

Great shed,G.mage.Peter is going to be well pleased with that..Are you allowed in it? :o)..just one thing..where have you put Dylan and Emily's slide..?

Hi all, Thank you Cinders, Pam, Julia ( no name as yet!), Yorks & B. Think the answer to your Q. B is NO. maybe to look but definitely not to touch! The slides have been re-located to the other end of the garden, we get them out when we know they are coming over, Lol. In fact we lent a neighbour the green one for their grandson and can have it back anytime!

If the single bed wont go in, I've found a hammock is very comfortable lol.
Seriously my OH would LOVE a shed, but my G.H came first!

29 Aug, 2012

 

Good idea Waddy, will pass that info on! We have just got rid of our GH. and I feel quite liberated as I found it too much work :( OH builds steam trains so he needed this space rather than the dining room table!! Lol.

29 Aug, 2012

 

It's a lovely shed. I like the double doors. What's he going to put in it ?

29 Aug, 2012

 

Well Hywel all his train building things will go in it along with a lathe, milling machine, drills and tons of metal bits. Lol. The double doors are great aren't they, wide enough for large engines etc. His Britannia is 5' long.

This is brilliant Grandmage - excellent work !!!

29 Aug, 2012

 

What a great job you've done! Every bloke needs a shed....or a loft. Mine's more of the 'loft type'!

29 Aug, 2012

 

A job well done , all we need now is a picture of Peter next to his pride and joy [I mean the SHED lol]

29 Aug, 2012

 

Takes me back - my dad used to build steam locos in his garage. (The car never stood a chance...) Lets wish him many happy years of puffers!

29 Aug, 2012

Smashing shed, my OH would love one that size.......no chance lol

29 Aug, 2012

 

Can we have a picture of Brittania please ? I know its not gardening. Just curious.

30 Aug, 2012

 

Oh Great ! It's for his hobbies :o) I'm all for people having interesting hobbies :D

30 Aug, 2012

 

Thanks Dd. it is rather large 8x8 but will house all his junk! Lol
Diane if you look through my blogs and find '30 years in the making' you will see Britannia on there.
Hywel, you do 'pottery' in your shed dont you? I agree everyone needs a nice hobby, have you done a blog about pottery?

30 Aug, 2012

 

Wow great job done.Brilliant shed i want one now lol love it:))))

30 Aug, 2012

 

Go on Mark and then you can set up a little wood craft business! Thank you. :)

30 Aug, 2012

 

Haven't done a blog yet. I will one day after I've made something worth showing lol ;o)

30 Aug, 2012

 

Look forward to that Hywel. :)

lovely job, GM - How long did the old shed stand for? if it didn't have a proper base like this, this should last much longer.

I'd love to have a shed, or some outdoor spae out of the weather - I've got lots of messy craft stuff that I've got no room to do in the kitchen - and there'd be a heck of a lot of pre-prep to cover all the food-preparation surfaces beforehand!

Hi Fran, well we had the brick built 'shed' for years but over the last couple it had cracked and had started to move due to the location of neighbouring trees. So it had to come down, Peter needed a realiable workspace so he could work with his lathe & milling machine, working with metal requires a dry space! Shame you cannot have a 'shed' :(

30 Aug, 2012

 

Looks great GM, love the size & doublr doors.
I liked the old brick one but this should be much lighter & having them doors open on a summer's (Ha) day will be lovely :-)

30 Aug, 2012

 

just the job for me as long has i get a chair and a work table and some were for me can to stand on lol xx :))) BBFB

30 Aug, 2012

 

Smashing size for all his 'stuff' your OH is rightly pleased. You could consider calling it THE ENGINE HOUSE.

30 Aug, 2012

 

Nice one Scot. will put that name forward! Mark reckon you should build a special table for your 'can'!! Thanks Willi, OH is a happy bunny now that his new workshop is waterproof because his trains stuff costs a fortune! Did you say open doors on a summers day....LOL..... well not this year anyway!!

30 Aug, 2012

 

That's one fine shed! Now you have your dining table back too!

1 Sep, 2012

 

Lou, very true and he uses the loft and garage, he is everywhere!!

2 Sep, 2012

 

Very smart G`mage, your OH will enjoy his new space, how long before its full up.

2 Sep, 2012

 

I know mine would be full by yesterday!

3 Sep, 2012

 

and ours the day before that!!!! LOL. (Lincs & Lou)

3 Sep, 2012

 

Great size Gmage. Very handy too with the double doors. It's so nice to have a dedicated space to do your 'thing' in. T has the garage, I have the conservatory.

8 Sep, 2012

 

Brilliant Hb. yes we do all need to 'escape' dont we. trouble is OH has the loft, garage & workshop!! Still I dont mind it keeps him quiet. Lol

8 Sep, 2012

 

T just finished rebuilding a motor bike and I got him interested in making a sit in airoplane like 'Aunty Mabels' for Emily and Samuel for Christmas. That will keep him from under my feet for another few months.......lol

9 Sep, 2012

 

Hb. Way to go girl!!! Just keep plying him with cuppas. Lol.
