Very pleased so far.. still need to close in around the base.

I've kept a running total and its coming in around £550. My main expenses were
roof and trim cladding £210
timber cladding £110
18mm ply floor £110
door and glass £50
woodstain £25
screws £20
timber £10
padlocks £15
electrics ..not finished
...
at the start i reckoned over £1000 would be needed, but having sourced materials from the likes of a Restore and getting reclaimed cladding for the 'out of view sides' its been a very rewarding project so far..

thanks for all the great comments..

one complaint I have is, some water is getting in at the top where I took the edge trim over the top of the cladding. Wind is blowing rain inside and it runs down the underside. Not very much, but enough to annoy me. Should have slightly kinked the top edge of the roof cladding upwards or run a deep bead of silicone. Still can do this.

I got one of these wireless intruder alarms. I'm more than happy with the sound it gives out when the sensor is tripped, Have placed the reciever in the kitchen window and on its loudest setting it is really loud.. loud enough to waken me up

the uprights serve as nice recesses to put stuff, hose stores away nicely.

This is 4" wide timber I got for free, just run a planer across them and bevelled the edges, power points put in.

Shelves put into the depth of the uprights to hold small items, screws, boxes etc

I went back to the restore and the remaining glass was all away. Was hoping to get another couple of them as replacements
