The Shed Is Standing

I finished the last frame on Saturday afternoon so we hoisted them up so that we could get a feeling for the height.

You can never really appreciate the size of a building and the room you’re going to have in until height has been added. I remember walking around our house pad after the concrete had been poured thinking how small it was. But, after they laid the bricks you could get a sense of dimension and it didn’t feel so small.

I’ve had a few chuckles from mates who thought my 3.5m (11.5″) x 5m (16.4″) shed was a tad on the small side but when you’re trying to fit this plus a decent garden on a 690sq.m (2,263″) block you have to use your space well. This shed will accomodate ample room for my woodwork projects, including a bench to house my power tools, storage cupboards, a place for my home brew kit plus a gardening bench shed. Along one side it will also house racks of plants that we will be propagating.

Alas, this is how it will sit for a while as we save enough for the roof trusses. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Additionally, we participates in various other affiliate programs, and we sometimes get a commission through purchases made through our links.
