Re: Shed Upgrade

...now it's full of crap again though, as we're expecting a load of rain overnight and tomorrow, so got the mower in (it's been living under a tarp for the last couple of weeks).

Re: Shed Upgrade

...and we have a workbench! IMG_20201018_155454.jpg In fact this is the second build of it - the first time I put it in place the bench was too high, so I took it all out again and reset the height - it's now at just under 36" to the top surface. I've used the worktop offcuts - so I have a joint in ...

Re: Shed Upgrade

After lots of faffing about wondering whether to use a 2 part epoxy ("might as well do it right if I am doing it") I realised that they probably wouldn't cure properly in current temperatures, and also I am only using it as a workshop and ride on mower store,...

Re: Shed Upgrade

....well. here we go with part the second. The workshop/shed/whatever as it arrived - they very nicely design the studs to be at 4' intervals, so in theory you can board it out easily with 8' x' 4' sheets. Of course there are a few areas where the full sheet thing doesn't work. IMG_20200926_102018.j...

Shed Upgrade

Time for a DIY topic methinks! We moved down to East Sussex in early 2019. The house is a lot smaller, but we do have a fair bit of outside space. The house is semi detached, but also has semi detached stables (though at around 8' long you'd be hard pressed to get anything bigger than a small pony i...

Re: Back In Hospital

Good grief. Apart from the ridiculous-ness of them hoping a family member could bring food in for you, that also sounds like a case of the consultant not being very nutritionally aware - apart from at the level of "bananas contain potassium". I am being treated for something at the moment and was to...
