So here goes… After cluttering the house my husband decided enough was enough and built me my own shed! The project before the projects..

They de-cluttered and measured area, then levelled off the ground area.

They then made a sub frame for the floor. Photobombed by Bobby (father-in-law’s dog)

They fixed the sub frame to block pad to create the floor areaIMG_5254

I then helped out and painted the floor area with weatherproof paint.

They then measured, cut out and built up all four sides using stud work frames and clad that  with plywood

Then it was time to put the roof on the shed, using the same materials as for the walls.  The roof was then waterproofed with bitumen and felt

The walls were painted with fence and shed treatment in beautiful cream colour

The top was also painted and treated with the same paint as the walls in blue shade

  1. I adore this idea! I’d love to have a shed in the garden for all my crafting and sewing projects. I might never come out of my craft cave though!
