Yes Marty its already over two years ago.  Don't think anyone is going to forget construction day in a hurry,
everyone woked hard all day under very hot conditions.

hmmmmm.... I see a slight problem here.......no power points  &&

Rob it's an outdoor games room, solar power at its best.

Now your teasing us  *%*

Yes I am teasing,but I will give you another picture.

That's not a pinball shed, looks big enough to be a bowling alley. Is it in the same post code as your house?

Your shed can never be big enough, no matter how big the bugger is.

sorry Theo but can't help it. I've been in the colorbomd fencing biz for some time but have to applaud your neighbour for having the best metal fence I've seen for some time. Is it a new Bluescope design?

Thanks Dan, it has been a long time coming.  Time to now start working on the layout and wall/ceiling
decor, will have to come and visit again to get a few more ideas.

Rob, I can happily report that the fence was replaced about two months ago.  Unfotunately there was a big wind gust  #@# and blew the bugger over.

Some one has to ask. What's the size of the shed?

The slab size is 6.5m x 16m.  There are two sheds, the small  one is 3m x 6m and the big one is 6.5m x 12m with a 1.0m walkway between them.

The frame looks like it's cyclone-rated! You guys did a great job - always nice to see mates working together, especially on something this big  @@*

The walls are 2.5m high, would of been nice if they were taller.  The higher the walls the more room to hang more stuff on.

Amazing how quickly you can start to fill the bugger up.

Time Lord technology - it's even bigger on the inside ;)

Not sure how Time Lord Technology works but can you double the inside for me please.

You are 100% correct this would not have been possible without the help of my mates, it was a long stinking hot day but we achieved a fair bit.

How did you get away with no fire rating on the fence side?

Not sure of the exact technicalities, related to open space.

Your shed can never be big enough Rob, no matter how big it is you always find a way to fill it.

Yeah, plus once it's up it's up  *%*  That is one very strong shed - was an engineer involved? (they always go the full hog - which means it's there for a lifetime). I've seen much bigger sheds with much less frame - .nice piece of kit.

Andy, I looked at a number of shed's from various shed companies and opted to go with this one as it seemed to be the most sturdy.  It was one from their standard range of sheds.



Shed build nearing completion and a teaser.  Look out for thread to see what's in the shed.
