    Altho watching the demo video, that's a lot of bits. I mean it's not dissimilar in terms of parts to a bicycle. But proper lol at them marketing it as cost effective.

    Cupboard doors are fucking genius.

    Don't suppose you remember what the mechanism is or roughly what sort of cost they were?

    Do you find these ugly?

    Sorry missed this. Cheers.

    No. But idk if my OH will like them.

    The alix ones might be a better shout as there are different colours. Plus they fold so can be stored in the shed. Just need to work out the best ones as the current scheme is pretty neutral with colour coming from accessories I think. Curtains are sort of that 90s denim colour.

    Is lightly overclocking the graphics in a middle of the road laptop likely to make any improvement to running Fusion 360?

    It's almost always plugged in fwiw, so all I need is it to do a couple of hours of MS Office on the battery.

    Preparing to battle a toddler in the garden today, so a military watch with green strap seemed fitting.

    Sweet.

    Did you put a vent at the bottom for air flow?

    No, I used a spade and boots to do the physical leveling. Then a few straight bits of wood with a big level to measure.

    As I said it is a small/storage shed that I was relocating, so it would have been as much work to get a machine into the back as to do it by hand.

    Probably also worth saying it went in an existing flower bed so digging was easier. Ymmv depending on location and size.

    I don't have many pics as I was trying to fit it in at night and a couple of weekend nap times before my BiL came to stay who helped me move the shed.

    My only other suggestions for a normal shed would be;
    1) to allow for some extra round the edges for the rain run-off to fall onto as it will soak away better than grass and won't have dirty splash back.
    2) have an extra "door matt" section at the front where the wear from foot traffic will be heaviest. Because it clicks together and can be easily cut you can do whatever shapes you want that would add to the cost of a concrete base.
