Workshop shed build

Some people go away for their holidays... and then there’s me, who takes four weeks leave to build shed.

There was sort of a plan - a couple of drawings and some framing layouts, but nothing spectacular. After a year and a half of collecting unwanted timber, house wrap, insulation, Colorbond, trim, OSB and screws from local house construction, I was ready to go. Purchased some framing timber, flooring and timber for the subfloor, five sheets of OSB and the Ryobi 3 piece nailer / stapler set. Add two secondhand windows and assorted flashing and fixings, stir in a dollop or door hardware and cap with the 5.1m x 240mm LVL bearer I found on the side of the road.

Re: Workshop shed build

Thanks Jason, the only thing I really need at the moment is more time!

Howling southerly and sideways rain, so no progress today.
