    Default Thinking of getting a massive shed.

    A very large local shed has come up for rent for a affordable rate, and I'm seriously considering taking up the lease.

    The obvious issue is making the shed pay for itself and without driving me into financial ruin.
    That means not filling up with fuegos.


    Would any froggers have any need for secure long term under cover car/van/boat storage on sydney's northern beaches????


    The shed has power, water,toilet, lighting and if all goes to plan, will have a renault workshop complete with hoist.
    It has concrete floor, and to work on your cars at the premises would not be an issue.

    A workshop with a hoist is my main focus here, but if I can get some people to sub lease some car spaces, I should be able to pull this off and rent the whole shed, not just a third of it.
    If 5 spaces were rented at around $40 per week, The plan would work.

    If you are at all interested, give me a holler.

    It's a great idea Jo and I only have one word of advice. INSURANCE!!!!!!!

    You'll need public liability at least.

    Is that $40 for five spaces?

    If so, I'm all ears.

    Default Size matters

    You know: no matter how big the shed is, it will still be too small ....... (Just getting in before 27 of 85)

    I didn't think of that.

    Only two month ago i took out a public liability policy my the other shed, so hopefully it wont be too much more to include another shed.

    This is sydney, not juneeeee...

    You know it's not the size that matters, it's how you use it.

    I have gone and taken on the lease to 2/3 of the shed.

    When I clarified the price with the landlord, it seems I had it a but wrong and after he explained what he would need to do to the sheds in order to make them rentable, I understood his budget.

    I made him an offer too good to resist....Do nothing to the part of the shed I want, leave it to me to do all the fixing up and electrical work with bits and pieces lying around the joint, and for my efforts I'll only pay the original weekly rental price, and pay rent 52 weeks in the year year after year.

    I think the last bit was the hook, as I have a proven record over the last 8 years of being a good payer.
    Have secured preliminary expressions of interest from enough people needing secure under cover storage to be confident that I can afford the whole thing and that it will work out for everyone.


    So look forward to a new thread 'Jo's dream shed'.

    My bathroom/house isn't even that good.

    See the new thread for the reality of what I have got myself into.

    If I could get it past the powers that be with the legal junk I would build one and live in it as well. The fumes from the cars will make it fun to live in at times.
