- Bike shed/workshop size spec.
built my own , 8 x 10
would have to throw all the bikes out to work on a bike inside but has a workbench for those small jobs …just need to get hold of a decent vice !
cost me 400 quid and 2 days work for 2 guys all in – 16mm ship lap sides , 4 x 2 framing , 16mm ply floor sitting on 8x4s and 12 for roof no windows
the door has had another coat since and the security has been upgraded , that was just a hasp i bought at focus on a sunday morning as stupid forgot he needed locks !
only downside is no electricity but if out for extended time i just run an extension out the window , for other times i got some battery powered led press lights that are fine for getting bikes in an out in the darkPosted 7 years ago
rented property is the answer to both questions
try not to spend too much time in there anyway prefer to ride !
the big question is – how many bikes your got – i have 10 bikes in that shed and can still work at the bench in comfort …. electricity would be a synch to put in if i wished but i cant go taking a spur out of a rented house so all i do is throw a cord out the bathroom window and plug in the lamp. – that coupled with a small pocket radio and im laughingPosted 7 years ago
Well currently looking at houses as moving so may have a garage but current favourite has big garden but no garage.Posted 7 years ago
Don’t really want to spend that much time in there but when it’s wet, dark and raining it would be nice to be able to do some fettling, currently I have to drag various bikes out a cupboards and hope for good weather.
