  • The local Costa Coffee was good for TetraPak donations, apparently. Biggest pain was cleaning them all. Lots of folding and a staple gun otherwise.

  • I've got 8 bikes hung along a 3.3m wall, so 6 over 2.5m should be fine. You might struggle to have space for a bike workstand and a bench. I can just fit a workstand against the hung bikes and have space to work between that and my bench.

  • Don't go smaller, you'll always fill the space with more tools / wheels etc, and it's better to have space to move whilst you're working, or re-arranging all the crates to get to the one at the bottom.

  • You have lots of space, you're not allowed to complain.

  • This is my shed. There are many like it but this one is mine...

    2 m x 2.6 m or 6' x 8' it was in the garden when I bought the house almost 25 years ago. Since then I have re-painted it multiple times and re-roofed it circa 2019 as well as adding the guttering and it has 3 slimline water butts collecting the rainwater.

    One of the biggest impacts was last year when I washed the windows on the left hand side for the first time ever. It made an amazing difference to my ability to see what was going on inside where it houses various garden tools and machinery.

    I was planning on extending it to the left where I have 1 m/3' of space and was looking for some ideas. I would ideally use the existing left hand panel with the window and simply move it out 0.75/2' by extending the front & rear wall with some additional shiplap. However I thought the extended flat roof might look a bit naff and it would be more of a crawl space on that side as I couldn't stand up in it.

    Alternatively I could cut down the centre line of the front panel (and the rear) and add some shiplap to make a sort of Gambrel roof but with a flat section at the top and the existing roof hanging off either side. Does that make sense?

    Any thoughts, comments or ideas?

  • Excuse my lack of MS Paint skills but the new sections on the front here in red (and on rear panel and roof)

  • Does anyone have a peg board?

    Any chance you could post some pics? Especially interested in heavily used and unphotogenic ones.

    Currently getting a head of myself planning my shelving now the frame of my bench is complete and in the process wondering about peg board on the short wall as I often struggle to put stuff away, but unsure of how I'll use it.

  • Also this thread gets way to little traffic. I wonder if it's because it's in the mech and fixing?

  • I'm very untidy, this is my workbench/wall

  • Cheers.

    I'm sold.

  • Is there a go-to budget pegboard before I spend months procrastinating?

  • I went for Bott because I'm an absolute tart, but I don't regret it at all

  • Nails in a bit of 12mm+ MDF/Ply?

  • Bott

    Nails in a bit of 12mm+ MDF/Ply?

    A middle ground perhaps?

    I'd ideally like ~2m x 1m

    (edit 1.7m x 1m)

  • Cheers.

    Also found this LaserSmith 6mm wooden Pegboard 1000MM X 500MM, 6mm hole with 25mm Hole centres perf board­ef=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_i_XR393C6AQF8KYCV8K1­DS

    1m x 0.5m for £30

    A review referenced needing to mount it on spacers for clearance for pegs Google thinks 2cm is sufficient.

    Edit also a metal one from sealy for £50 2 panels, 54x88cm totalling 108x176cm which is about spot on for a 113x~170cm space.

  • Shed. Recently tidied as you can see.

  • Envious of the space and your vise.

  • Agreed, lovely vice that.

  • Raaco works for me. Combo of peg board and louvered panels for small bins.

  • Speccing up a 15x10 shed (with a 2' "porch" on the long side), mainly looking at Beast Sheds. Wondering if the Beast version is worth the additional £1.5k. 20mm vs 12mm cladding, 3"x2" vs 38mmx50mm framing.

  • It's called a beast shed.... What's not too like?!
