    i was thinking at least the outside as we may need to take it to the boundary – allowed here.. i’d finish inside after..

    Not an insurmountable problem I wouldn’t think, but it’ll need careful consideration. No experience personally, but they move whole houses in the US/Aus/NZ.

    Build it like a flat pack kit, floor, walls and roof all separate panels and bolt together at the joints and corners.

    As above. Build it in panels and move into place.

    Shed is back on – i’ve gone through about 4 designs as the location changes all the time. We’ve now fixed on a site that doesnt annoy the neighbours..

    I have been looking at various threads and on the web for advice on how to build… its a nightmare to try and pick through the does & donts..

    Does anyone have a list of things to do, im thinking especially doors/door jambs, windows, roof, overhang or not, how to finish between walls and roof.. AlexSimon? Mcmoonter? Tymbian?

    where does one get this info?! The terminoligy for the parts is sth im missing too!

    AS – did you manage to get a list together as you talked about in your thread?

    i have a shape that may well be a nightmare but i cant do anything about it. I have my reliable festool tracksaw and router though so should be ok.

    What are you worried about? Recently built my second shed. Some pics included if they work. https://i.imgur.com/DKZ3JGj.jpg https://i.imgur.com/RTKy0W8.jpg https://i.imgur.com/BPCwb0Y.jpg

    MH: well im just new to this so am trying to figure out how to finish once rafters/board go down with the epdm. Im trying to figure out if i want an overhang or not, and if so how to finish the underside of this?

    Im going (so far) with a water tight building in a similar vein to surfers summerhouse with a rainscreen in larch. This larch isnt really functional as i intend it to be waterproof already.

    Im also unsure how to finish the waterproofing at the top & bottom.. or does it just get battened to the structure and thats it?
