By popular demand, a project blog of the building of my new man shed.
Somehow (I'm already confused as exactly how, though I'm not questioning) in the recent past, I persuaded my wife to agree, as part of a whole garden rejig, to allow me to rebuild my man shed. We moved house a couple of years back and I was lucky enough to find myself the proud owner of a 30ft shed/garage. Apparently, the previous owner had built it specially to house his boat. Fun nerdy times were had, but it quickly became clear that the roof leaked and, before long, the whole place would collapse in on us if we rolled too many dice at once.
Fast forward two years, the wife wants the garden done, so it's time to clear out the old, and start anew. @Ben suggested I blog the build as it appears, so here's the initial photos after two or three days.
So far, it's just a concrete base, with the six supporting posts set in the concrete,(complete with obligatory handprints) and the beginnings of walls. I opted to use floorboards to construct the walls, rather than shiplap, as it was considerably cheaper.
I'll probably post everyday with progress reports. Hopefully the whole thing shouldn't take long.
