    Icon6 Shed for the dead

    Well finally I have got of my bony a**se and started the repository for the long long term maybe never projects to free up space for the new impulse buys the respite palliative care shed is rising amazing what you can do with a backhoe and a 30 tonne excavator the green shed is the sensible one to keep everyone happy

    Mmm.. space for 2 or 3 daily drivers, 4 or 5 projects next door. Nice looking shed. In a dry area with a concrete floor, weatherproof almost a perfect place for old Cits. I'm thinking that many of us would love this sort of space and shedding

    :happyrun: = doesn't look like the Aus-City smilies work here :sad:

    Well that takes care of 4 cars ........ Now to build another shed that'll fit about 20cars

    I can take one of your hoists off of you if there taking up to much space in your sheds too

    BTW: don't just compare prices with sheds, take a look at there demo that's usually assembled. Garage World sheds for example appears vastly better built than the real cheapies. Take a look at the big brackets between the upright purlins, and the purlins that head up for the roof. I should take a piccie of my old mans shed and the shed here (there both less than two years old). This one is comparitively junk compared to his (not to mention he got 3metre high walls and 20degree roof pitch.... it makes the shed seem immense inside, plenty of room for a mezanine level).

    Machinary shed ?? 3.5 walls is really big ... You could probably recoupe some of your investment by storing caravans for people (most retiree vans need 3.5metre clearance these days... nearly all sheds doen't have the access height).

    10 x18 is a brilliant size ... wish it was in my backyard If you squeezed 'em in, you could go 5 cars wide, and 3 cars deep (so 15 cars) .... with a few metres at one end for some pallet racking You would only want to get out the rear 5 cars though (depending on door positioning)

    Jeez, Archrival,

    DO NOT FOLLOW ANY ADVICE SHANE PROPOSES RE SHEDS!

    Otherwise you will end up with a workshop that matches Shane's, and possible problems with regulatory authorities, council planning requirements and neighbourhood action groups!

    Not to mention in-house problems such as divorce proceedings, and the requirement of spending several years wages to hire heavy equipment removalist to transfer items if ever you have to move!

    Please keep the above in mind,

    An enviable

    Archrival love your work! Just need to install a REAL MAN'S (and for that point) WOMAN'S BBQ. The type that complete tree's are used in so a large dead animal can be roasted.

    Shane I hope that it is possible to revive the 'Days of Our Lives' thread on your move as it was beyond priceless....(Shameless attempt to bring up my paraphrased Oscar Wilde quote!)

    More power to your arms/backs and wallets boys!

    A dirt floor should make the Citroens feel right at home..

    "Built in a factory with a dirt floor by a bunch on disgruntled Algerians" .. or words to that effect ... attributed to a certain Jeremy Clarkson.

    There are some gluten-free beers around, and they're not bad. If gluten is the issue that is. Based on malted sorghum.

    Wine cellar sounds good to me.

    (Memo to self - pack red wine glass, scrounge airline ticket, change of underwear, etc, - - - - )

    Can Aus organise the Taddiespa et al as well?

    Default Count me in!

    Archrival, if your so inclined do tell us why "beer is poison" and the collective AF knowledge may help. I think it is the right thing to do as dying of thirst is a horrible thing!
    I'd of course pack a couple of Victorian Durif's, a few Rutherglen fortified's and an armful of quality whites....Viognier, Marsanne and even a thing that the Kiwi's seem to do better than the French, Sauvigon Blanc.
    Could even bring my own meat, does fresh DIY road kill count as I'm quite partial to 'Roo ? Horse isn't bad when rare but as a carpaccio with lemon and a small amount of herbs, grind of black pepper from a Peugeot mill then it is something else!
    (This will test some I'm sure.)
    Bon Appetite!

    Rutherglen Durif!! You're an educated man. And the rest too.... I'm eyeing off the latest Stanton and Killeen catalogue as I type!

    Back to topic. Shed looks great. Best to put a list on the door with the history of what is there so that someone can work it out in 30 years, as the tendency is for this things to accumulate and accumulate and...

    JohnW I didn't specify Rutherglen Durif's as my travels/stumbles have taken me further a field.
    Like the idea of the sign on the door, may have to include what was partaken. Just to stick it up 'em! just add red teeth!
    Ever tried a Pyrenees (Victorian) Pinot Noir, I think it is fantastic! Pity the winery is only going to use it in a sparkling, bloody crime IMHO!
    Definitely and a stunning .
    p.s. Thank you for the accolade!

    But isn't Rutherglen the centre of the known universe? My R8 has been there from Perth and to Milawa from Adelaide! I've not tried a Pyrenees Pinot, but should probably try and find one. I guess if there are enough dead cars in a shed, there would be enough thermal inertia to store wines too.

    Yeah, Wiley,

    And the airline would not let me take the Taddiespa (now matured back into the Toadpond) as cabin baggage.

    Mongrels!!

    Looks like the shed Christening party at Arch's place may have to wait.

    Damn!!!!!

    Sadly,
