The Shed is Built !!

At long last the shed is finally up, proving once and for all, all good things come to those who wait... actually, as my shirt says, to those who work their asses off and never give up! 

Yes it's been a while, starting way back here on 3 July 2014, dealing with unexpected set backs due to sewer pipes and council building regulations, subsequently learning about the history of the property through the council building searches, choosing a builder and signing contracts, before finally seeing some progress with the form-work done for the slab to be laid. So without further ado, see the shed evolve through the photo essay below...

A big thanks to Trevor from McSheds and Cameron from Gun Constructions for getting the shed delivered and constructed by Xmas. I can honestly say that while we were limited to a 3m x 4m shed due to the council building regulations Trevor and Cameron ensured we got value for money. Best of all they took care of all the non-construction related aspects for us as well from design, to council approval, to final building certification. Last but not least, a big thanks to Kate for coordinating everything as resident on-site construction manager, so that the only thing I needed to do was pick out shed colours one lunchtime (thanks babe x).

Cheers, Col

PS. In lieu of a topping out ceremony yours truly celebrated this building completion with one of James Boag's finest :-)
