Here I am making a start on building our new garden shed. The old shed has served us well all things considered. It was expensive at the time (about 6yrs ago, maybe more) for what we got and hasn’t weathered well. Made from a ¾” x ¾” framework and clad in 6mm overlap it was never going to last that long.

The new shed has been on the cards for a long time, and is to be 3.6m x 1.8m. The structure is made from timbers that have been pressure treated and we are also going to give the exterior a few coats of wood preservative.

For the base I have used 50mm x 50mm for the framework on 600mm centres. On top of the framework is 150mm x 22mm boards. The walls are also 50mm x 50mm for the framework on 600mm centres, and cladding 19mm TGV cladding.

I am hoping that we will get a lot more life out of this shed as it has been built to last.

  1. Nice shed base,just found your shed video as well ! I will keep looking as different videos seem to pop up as I look at others.
    Building onto your decking was a good idea too,warmer and good ventilation,every model builder/flyer needs a man cave !
