The Xtra Shed

Its had a new front added and been extended by a foot in depth. I joined it to the wall as a lean-to and made a bike shed as a result. Pics show it all.

The shed was falling to bits when I inherited it, it only had a 4 sides left, no roof and a rotten floor, I dug up the rotten floor and laid sand and paving slabs down and put a layer of pallets and then carpet tiles. I strengthened the sides by fixing an internal frame around the top. I then put a roof on using 2" thick ply, it was so strong, I could leap up and down on it! I made my own arched door, and put a new front using shed panels, including 2 window frames, which are lockable. I cut down an old kitchen worktop to give me a very strong work bench which was mounted on 2 kitchen drawer units. I was given a metal bench which I used to fix a drill stand, a bench grinder stand, and metal vice onto. The inside is still in the process of being finished, I started lining it by fixing t & g slats around the inside. Its looking good!

P.S. I have recently fitted a high shelf to the outhouse/lean-to, so I can store other stuff, pics to follow.
