    Sun’s out and the wind has dropped so Im braving the outdoors again.

    Going to put up a wood shed closer to the house for next season’s wood. Hopefully my building merchant will drop off my timber early in the day as Ive only a little bit of ground work to do before I need it.

    It’ll go here:

    7:45am

    got to drop Jr off at skool first. Then coffee.
    Then a little bit of teeth sucking.
    Some tool sorting.
    Might start on site by 10am 🙂

    I set out in lovely clear skies 40 minutes ago, it’s now overcast and dull, so I’d say its a no go. Best you stay inside and procrastinate on here instead!

    …aye, you’ll get a good hours work in before down tools for a pre-lunch Ginsters and flick through the Sun (this must take place in the cab of a van). 🙂

    Is this start of shed wars? Power play between Mcmoonter, Footflaps and Stoner could leave the country north of Watford peppered with structures full of combustable material. Are they preparing for when Scotland shuts off the oil pipeline?
    Is Mcmoonter going to become rich beyond his wildest dreams when he starts to smuggle logs south?
    Or given the substantial nature of Footflaps bunker is he just preparing a haven from the ensuing fire storm when the tinder dry stores ignite in the blistering heat of summer?

    blistering heat of summer?

    Post locations prep’d. Cant do anything more now until delivery turns up with post spikes 🙁 Time for a brew.

    Cupcakes came out well though 🙂
    Wimmin! This is proper multitasking!

    Brilliant, there can never be too many woodpile / shed building threads on here.

    Adds to favorites.

    Post Spikes !!!???

    What sort of half arsed construction project is this?

    We want them set 16′ down in molten lead foundations!

    sod the molten lead, mcmoonter just sticks them in the ground (I still have not got to the bottom of how he fixes them upright)

    He has stern words with them about it being better to be the firewood shed rather than the actual firewood.

    The jedi shed builder will be along soon to sort this one out..(puts kettle on and awaits Mcmoonters arrival)

    Once they’re fastened to everything else, there’ll be lots of nice triangles and nothing’ll move?

    Yes, the post spikes are a major dissapointment. I can only assume that Stoner is going for an ‘Olde Worlde’ style log shed with all the timber at odd angles.

    Well that’s obvious, but what happens before hand. A key part of engineering is designing the installation, not just the finished product.
    Anyway we have the solution:

    He has stern words with them about it being better to be the firewood shed rather than the actual firewood.

    wwaswas has obviously been McMoonter school to learn the ways of the wise one.

    And what stops his sheds sinking where leg meets earth? Or does he ‘crete some pads upon which the shed is stood?

    What are the chances Stoner eats a couple of cakes with his afternoon cuppa break 😀

    good point, McMoonter to the thread! Explain yourself! Its bloody shed voodoo I tell thee.

    His build photos always show shed-loads of extra random bits of wood tacked on during constructions, which I assume are temporary positioning braces to back up the stern words.

    I’d always wondered what real addiction was, then the wood threads started on here. Now I find myself turning to the wood based threads first every time I log in and find many more addicts waiting for more news and the latest photos from fellow woodists across the STW world. Is there one of those 12 point plans like there is at AA?

    The speed at which these Stoner and McMoonter structures go up is just embarrassing!

    I have to be honest here, that icing is pretty shoddy.
