Gents a few "language violations" of the CoC in a couple of posts there.

We have a zero tolerance of bad language on the forum, please respect that. Asterisks & numbers to alter the spelling are not permitted either.

Ooops sorry. John's old enough to know better, I'm just plain stoopid to think I'd got away with it!

See you in the morning John!!

Ian.

Took a flying visit today to inspect shed and pass it off before he set off doing some argey bargey sailing.

Gents it's a thing of beauty and something most of us dream of or to aspire of owning, could not believe the size and space and how Ian has utilised it all, would you believe he wouldn't leave me on my ownsome in there crying I had deep pockets too. The cottage and grounds are delightful and that is another project for him, after the stableblock he renovated and lived in previously I thought that would be the end of those projects. Doesn't like life easy our master builder.

Well done matey, stunning job yes

Cheers John, much appreciated comments! Sorry to drag this up again (not really I'm chuffed and wanted to share!!) Got the gates all but finished, with the lamp latch and horizontal bars etc. Made up the hinge / corner brackets which wer a bit involved as they have to line up with the shed structure and keep the gates at the right height. Just the other gate hinge to make now, to pick up on the bricks and not the mortar joints!

Ian.

I've ordered another shed. Started the base this afternoon. Will have power etc, but this is a storage shed, and will free the workshop shed up - for a while until it fills again.

Problem with rc planes - they take up loads of room. at least i've got space for new ones this year...

Not as big as your hanger, but this is a 12x10, the last of the corner space in the garden.

I like your railway gates. Also I notice your plot is next to a railway line. Your shed could be mistaken for a old railway siding storage.

That was the whole point of the shed Paul. The house is an old North Staffordshire Railway house and station, we have seen old plans of the house which shows a siding and workshops on site. It would have been far too convenient to build a 'normal shed' but it would look like a normal shed and not something that might have just been refurbished. Cheers mate, see you soon at Congleton perhaps!

I just finished another shed, ran out of space - as you do!.

Needs power going in and other things which I will do tomorrow. The hard bit is done.

More shedliness I'm afraid!! Got the hinges and gates made and completed, and the big job of bitumen-ing the corrugated tins out of the way. Its turned a new looking shed into something that looks like its been there for years, perfect!! Now hopefully I 'll get some modelling done and get some of those unfinished build / refurb threads done!

Here's a few pics to show that no matter what shed you have, it always gets filled to capacity and then some! After ages of not being used for its designed purpose, it now is back to being a toy aeroplane shed, a hopefully busy one at that! Gone (for now at least) are the various narrowboat restoration and window frame making bits of gubbins that has taken up precious space and time for the last few months and for the first time in what must be four years I have a useable shed and more importantly the enthusiasm to use it! On a sadder note though, we lost one of my modelling heros recently, RIP David Vaughan, a truly great bloke and modeller. The memories of his modelas and plans will live with me forever, many thanks David. An inspirational man and modeller.

Ian.

That is one Beast of a shed Mr Ian, a chap could get lost in there for days...

Damn shame about young Dave, as we used to call him, one of the nicest fellows you could ever wish to meet.

Well I like that a lot.My sheds are both stuffed but only half of it is models .There is my car tools and plumbing tools. Loads of both plus compressor welder and other bits. But also lots of domestic bits that have been shoved in and a couple of side drums from my BB days. I've not been able to get out to it to sort it out as I still haven't had my hip ops. The smaller shed is stuffed with more power tools ans loads of plastic bags of I know not what. Also space in outside understairs cupboard is chocker too .It will take me months to sort them out.

And what is in the silver bundles hanging on the left?
