After a recent conversation with someone, who thinks all us men with our sheds, are slightly mad in an amusing kinda way! I need some back up to show that I am relatively normal in that respect so, so us your sheds please, the more unusual, handmade,flash, shonky etc etc – the better! Or a pic of why you should but don't own a shed… 🙂
Here's an equally shonky attempt at a pic, of my shed – it does have a door too!Posted 8 years ago
mmmm, I got a new one its not quite finished enough for the photo thing as yet, here is a pic of the old crap one and tent thing that used to house all the stuff until my new one. (yeah I pumped all that up using the Joe Blow, much easier with the £5 electric pump I have now)
New shed base.. 25ft x 7ft 🙂Posted 8 years ago
Looking at a place tomorrow that has concrete workshop/shed in the garden, looking on google earth you walk out of the house inot a small courtyard and the the workshop spans the width of this and you then walk through the workshop to get to the garden.
Could make a good bike storage workshop etc with the courtyard for washing etc.Posted 8 years ago

which one? got about 5 here with rustic charmPosted 8 years ago
the bikes are in the one with the tightest roof, the oil tank has the best walls and floor, the woodshed is shonky for a shed built of so much stone, the garage shed is under utilised whilst the one with no sides next to it has next years firewood seasoningmcmoonterMember
Call that a woodpile? I hope this link worksPosted 8 years agomcmoonterMember
A lot of it is hardwood. Mostly Oak and Beech, and some Larch. I cut it with a chainsaw. I get it from a sawmill which works with sustainable hardwoods. Its amazing how much waste there is. The bundles are 14 feet plus long and usually 1.5 tonnes. Its about as much as their loadalls can lift.
I have a second big shed thats as full.Posted 8 years ago

Some good shedage appearing – coastkid, do you get condensation with all that metal in the construction?
no metal at all woodsman except roof joists and doors,walls are sectional reinforced concrete,roof is that stuff that looks like absbestos but dosnt kill you ,the only condinsation is on 2 clear roof panels after some frost,lighting the stove after wet weather helps dry bikes after washing them..,Posted 8 years ago
Cool tinsy! is that a 'proper chopper', if it is I had the slightly later one, with the toggle type gear lever, which unscrewed into two halves – if that makes sense – you have the mark one, but then you'd know that anyway! What are the retro motorcross bikes – two strokes?Posted 8 years ago
Yep MK1, note the bag hanging off the toggle chain for the 4th and 5th gear, I got the shifters for a 5 speed too, but just running it as 3 speed right now… Niche or what!
Ones a Bultaco Pursang 360 1978 (very broken) the other is my ped, a Gilera 50 trail.

Just after I did it up about 2004
now with proper wood decking out front.
EDIT: found a pic with the decking.
cost about £1000 in total. that included the oak door (80p from B&Q due to a cock up by the till girl), all the insulation, plasterboard, wallpaper and carpet. i
stoleaquired the decking and the PVC window from a building site. most of the wood was savalge, as well as the four window panes. the cladding was new. the main frame including the trusses cost ~£200.

You not thought of anything to do with that huge store thing you posted on a different thread mike? Having a spare garage/shed space is pretty greedy
Well, when it rains heavily and the river bursts its banks, it would make a good covered swimming (paddling) pool or boat house. Unfortunately, that limits its usefullness for the rest of the year.Posted 8 years ago
heres a garden tool storage idea if you dont want them in your garage/dont have much room,
decking step into garden…
hinged lid, dugout tool store underneath…
back door lean-2, work in progress…
