Changes and Building finally finished.


   I moved into my house about 9 years ago, the back garden sloped from the back door all the way up to the back fence maybe a 3 meter rise.  about 3 years ago i started to re-level and change the garden into a more useable space.

Finally this weekend all the hard work is over, The garden is all level, paved, artificial grass down, and most importantly for me, the workshop is finished.
  After taking all the trees down out the back and the old shed i managed to build myself a 4 meter by 3 meter workshop.  I had my back door, kitchen window and a miss measured bathroom window to use.

 The main construction in 4x2 timber for the floor with 18mm waterproof Chipboard floor. Walls are 3x2 CLS covered with 16mm weatherboard.  The roof is 18mm chipboard with 3 layer torch on felt, there is also about a ton on silicone......

On the inside i have sheeted it out with 12mm chipboard, walls and ceiling, there is full rockwool insulation in the roof and walls.  The power has been ran straight from the Main fusebox in the house, to a fuse box in the shed.  There are 4 double sockets with 2no. USB ports incorporated into each.  2 along the back wall where my work station will be, 1no. under the window at the front and one under the fusebox.  There are two 600mm x 600mm LED lighting panels on this inside.

So this is it my new workshop/summer house.  I now need to design the workstation at the back, i am not sure how i will set the units and worktops of, i will maybe do a little research on the web on the best way to have it.

My plan is to build small layouts that can be taken to local shows, I have a few ideas on what i want to built, but i need to sort my work benches out first.

I am very pleased to be sitting where i am just now
