Hi folks, new to the forum so I thought i'd say hello and show you the stages of how my new shed is coming along. Having not long moved to a semi detached with a small garden I wanted a workshop space and somewhere that I could chill out. Well having looked at garden sheds at about 16' x 10' and the prices they charge i decided to build one myself. I dabble in carpentry in spare time so I sketched up an idea. Decided on 16 x 8 internally so it wouldn't impact too much on the garden..big enough to put a bench in, some storage and a recliner chair that I've been given. I'll update with photos as I go along.. cheers Lads

Hi,

:welcomeuhm:

Good luck with your new shed I hope it goes as planned for you. Have you considered a concrete sectional garage for speed and durability? 16 x 8 is a good size so you will be able to cram it with top class kit but dump the recliner because you won't have time to lounge in it? Looking forward to seeing some of your projects in the near future. :thumbleft:

Kind regards, Col.

Thats the idea anyhow to form a lean to timber framed shed on a timber base. Dont want a concrete base, as if I ever move the sheds coming too.

I was browsing in a restore run By Habitat and happened to see a mix of 4metre long 4x2. 5x2 and 6x2 second hand timber. about 30 in all, Got it all for under £10. The lengths were never used but had sat about, all perfectly straight and usable. So they will make a great suspended floor. Great start on the budget

Forgot to take pics during the initial base building but its posts set into post-crete and a perimeter of 6x2 bolted to them with 6x1.5" as joists. Making do with what i got at the restore.

I got to hear about timber packing that was used by a glass import company. Basically its 12' long x 4"x1" timber framed up as a U-channel. I went and picked up about 40 lengths of these for FREE. so I decided to use these as uprights. Took some apart and used them, doubled up, as rafters.

second pic was taken a week later after i got the base, uprights put in, rafters on.. Cost so far about £20

yes checked it out with local planning here and just at the 3m ridge height when near the boundary. Cant see a problem with neighbours as their sheds are nearly same heights

I know.. :-) all that timber sitting at the glaziers, most is dumped but i went 3 times with the trailer and brought 20 lengths each time and hardly made a dent in the pile. Got a couple of 3/4 sheets of marine ply as well, they'd been used as pallets

"Maximum height of 2.5 metres in the case of a building, enclosure or container within two metres of a boundary of the curtilage of the dwellinghouse."

And 3 metres high if a apex roof.
We have these timber crates at work there called end caps, we return ours when the yard gets full. Perhaps a coat of wood preserver before fitting would have helped as there just untreated soft wood.
There incredibly hard to take a part as they hold over a tonne of glass in some cases. Some of the lads at work took a few to use as garden planters.

I got this off our local planning web page for householder development. As far as I'm told by planning official Im OK for the height issue. I'm pushing on with the project

this one shows the roof cladding and rear wall cladding on. Rear wall is second hand corrugated tin.. donated by my boss. Bought profiled cladding with a anti- condensate lining. Cost of the roof cladding and trims was £210, about £8/metre

Love the up cycling of the glazing parts, maybe get a small woodburner now for the colder days?

that would only cause me to spend longer hours than 'She" would approve of and I do spend too much time out there

i've pushed on with the build and nearly there on the outside, got 6x3/4" t&g veed boards and given them some preservative stain in a golden cedar colour. roofs finished. So will turn now to the inside and get some of the cladding i've left over. Need the old side cladding painted.... some early morning pics.
