Timelapse of a shed build by my son and myself. Build was over several months.

Ran out of space in my single garage come woodwork shop, so decided to build a garden shed for extra space. Shed was built roughly according to US timber framed house methods.
The size of the shed is 20×6.5 feet internally and it cost about 6k GBP for the materials. It could have been built cheaper but we used prime materials throughout as a once only build.
For those interested in the technicals: it is based on 2×4" framing and joists, sits on 8×4" green oak sleepers on a 6" concrete pad. Floor is reclaimed maple strip flooring over 1" plywood. Internal and external sheathing is 3/4" plywood covered by Dupont Tyvek Supro. Rainshield is Western Red Cedar coated with Sikkens Cetol HLS Plus and Filter 7. Black 5mm perspex is used at the external floorline. Roof is a single EPDM sheet on 12mm plywood. It has 4" of PIR insulation and is pretty snug in winter. Windows and doors are fully flashed to US standards. Lacomet an aluminum/fibre glass based composite was used for the drip sills. There is a vapour/draught barrier under the internal plywood sheathing using Dupont Tyvek Airguard Reflective, which also helps to retain radiant heat.

  1. Под такую музыку должны были построить жертвенник сатане. Ну или кого нибудь убить в этом домике.

  2. Слушая эту музыку, я ожидал, что в финале на этом домике они унесутся в багровый закат, спасать мир или стартанут на Марс… Молодцы.

  3. под эту музыку хорошо хоронить кого нибудь)))

  4. Начиная с фундамента и небработанной фанеры сплош косяки.Неделайте так никогда

  5. J’ai besoin de quelqu’un qui s’y connait dans ce type de construction avec du bois pour l’amener chez moi au GABON.
    La première richesse du Gabon étant la forêt Équatoriale qui regorge d’espèces de bois rares et divers, je voudrais avoir une maison construite avec du bon bois mais par quelqu’un qui s’y connait dans ce type d’ouvrages.
    D’avance merci de me renseigner
