Shed Builder

I was lucky enough to buy a house with a shed already in place at the bottom of the garden. Other’s have to build their own from scratch or from a kit. My friend Rex and family assembled a “Rowlinson” Overlap Shed, 2.07 x 1.17 x 1.82m this weekend for his sister.

Q: Is this your first shed?
A: Yes.

Q: How long did it take?
A: About 5 hours

Q: How many people worked on this?
A: 3 adults, 6 children

Q: What did you use for the base?
A: 10 paving slabs arranged in a box shape

Q: What would you do differently next time?
A: I broke a paving slab by jumping on it, trying to level it, my dad attempted to use his chainsaw to trim the weatherboarding, it just ripped it up.

Despite this, the end results seem to have turned out alright and the shed has been christened “Beatrice”.
