I recently bought a house, and one of the things that got left behind was a 16'x8' shed/garage. I've decided that it will make a good temporary timber store, and if it lasts me a couple of years I will be happy. I was going to buy a shipping container for this purpose, but when this shed came up I thought what the heck I'll use this. It's cost me about £20 for some 2x2 sawn to replace all the bottom bearers that were shot to bit's, a mornings work to get it down, and re-erect.
I haven't had a chance yet to rack it out, but will be doing so next week. Anyway here's what it looked like before.
So a little bit rough, and ready. Transported and worked on the back of a trailer..
You might be able to see the rotten bottom bearers...if you look carefully.
And in it's new home next to my workshop.
I've placed the whole thing on pallets so air can circulate underneath, I'm having racks both sides, and a centre walkway made from ply. I'm also thinking of keeping sheet stock in there to free up some space in my workshop. As you can see there's still a bit of work to do, and I need to treat it with some kind of preservative. But not bad for a mornings work and a little money, plus it will give me some much needed space back in the workshop. Thanks for looking.
