  • Are those IKEA shelves too? I need some for my loft.

  • He definitely did a better job than I would have, really sound bloke who has been doing shed and garage bases exclusively for over 30 years.

    Shed looks great, you must be well pleased. Who would you recommend contacting for getting a shed/garage floor, just a regular builder?

  • Yes, IKEA hejne. Cheap and cheerful, they do 2 depths which is helpful. After much consideration I went for shallower. Easy to put together and although flimsy feeling at first, assembled and screwed to the wall at either end they’re rock solid.

    @jambon I was recommended a small (father and son type business) builder, who recommended this guy - said he does all their concrete bases. So I’d suggest finding a decent builder and going from there. Thanks for the comments. I’m pretty pleased, building a shed this size on your own definitely not a great idea, some parts were a real challenge. I’m good at problem solving though and came out having learnt a lot which is definitely worth the stress.

    I must be getting old, because I’m really excited about being able to sort out and store all my tools and other stuff. 😅 already designated the top shelf of the work bench as the tool shelf. So happy ☺️

  • Thanks a lot, this is really helpful. It sounds and looks like it worked for you so will probably take your advice and start with a decent builder and see what they suggest.

    That's not being old, that's just having your priorities in order. I'm the same :)

  • Not exactly a shed, but I guess tier 4 will give me more time to work on the grandkids treehouse ....

  • great treehouse

  • Quick question (searching within this thread showed no results)
    Need to replace a couple of shed windows, Acrylic or Polycarbonate sheets?

  • Acrylic sheets from Wickes were quite easy to cut if you take your time and score it properly before snapping it over an edge. I only used a Stanley knife but it might be better with the proper tool. Haven't tried polycarbonate.
