My workroom is in storage and sewing mode as I've been banned from the garage and the garden is just too depressing after the weedol incident ;)


At least I can still do the odd project- silk quilted blinds for my Eldests' flat from an old sari and a matress cover with broken elastic, I'm tighter than a gnats chuff.... :lmao:



Absolutely all my possesions are stored under the standing height worktable which is something of a firehazard, no grinding in here for me, unlike the lovely Shaggy ;)

My poor old shed had to be put out of its misery, I had to do it with my bare hands and my chainsaw. It broke my heart, have replaced it with one of those (shudders as I type this) plastic garden stores. Wish I hadn't bothered they are rubbish, the hinges have broken, the catch is on its way out and the lid supports have broken. have bolted T-Hinges on the doors and a wacking great catch on the lid. Should have bought another old fashioned wooden shed.

I gathered that much! :rolleyes:


anyone had any luck with metal sheds? are they worth buying over shiplap sheds?
You mean the pre-fab kits or building you own?

I've got one of the pre-fab kits now and they'll last about 10-15 years before they rust through (really that's not bad for the price) They can dent easily but with proper landscaping you can lessen that risk.

As for building a real one using corrugated metal roofing/siding over a pole barn type construction; well that's the single most common barn/small wharehouse construction type here. They'll withstand a hurricane and last 20-30 years.

I have a small metal shed, I wish it was bigger but I'm very pleased with it. Very solid when together but very flimsy before that. The biggest problem is condensation on the roof, I have reduced it by drilling vent holes at the very top but it should be possible to completely stop it by sealing the base either with a membrane when you make it or like I keep meaning to do by sealing over it.
