Default My new shed

We used to live on 25 acres but found it getting harder to look after, so we sold up and moved back to the suburbs. Took some time to find a property we could both agree on, one of my requirements being a good size shed. I was used to having a 48x25ft shed which was abit too much to hope for in the suburbs but we finally agreed on a property that would take a 36x18ft shed, but quite a bit of earthworks and new fencing and retaining walls was required. So after all that I could finally get my 20ft container with my shed stuff out of storage and start organising the new workspace. Here are some shots I took during that process, still some more work to be done but I'll get there eventually. Much more crowded than the previous workshop, but it all sort of fits in.

Absolutely beautiful Fred!. It may be smaller than you are accustomed to working in, but arranged very nicely. You did good my friend.

Hi Fred,

That second pic of the inside makes the place to be huge but is deceptive I believe, the areas you have already distributed your equipment and tools seems small compared to the size perception I had initially, one thing is for sure, that painted floor looks stunning and easy to clean.

In general, I would be most happy to have a shed like that, may visit one day...!
