    Cheers, I was thinking of 3 or 4x shield bolts through a french cleat, but the wall is the unknown. It's concrete block, but I don't know much more than that. It's moot as I can't get hold of the factory to make it for me since things opened again.

    Do update with photos/details when you figure it out, I'm looking at a similar design for my shed (still very much on paper at the moment) albeit with a timber frame not steel. Any reason why you're not running the long length vertical with the noggins horizontal?

    Also anyone know of a decent & free roof joist span/thickness calculator?

    Only since a couple of hours ago to be fair (not that that justifies a 160 mile round trip)

    I think you'll have to bust it to get to the 2nd screw under the handle. Good news is they don't take a lot of force to break.

    Hard to quanitfy I know, but assuming the wall could take the load, how much weight could you reasonably expect to hold on a setup like that? It's the kind of thing I was thinking for a kilner jar rack that would probably see in excess of 100kg of static load.

    Cheers, yeah was going to give the local planning office a call/email to ask the question.

    Yeah I'll likely build a small retaining wall at the side to maintiain an air gap and create a small platform for water butts and such.

    Well the front will hopefully be level with a deck, so if I just pile some earth up around the sides then I guess that counts as 'ground level'?

    Tried the plum wine today. Not overly impressed, quite sharp, I might have left it to long in the barrel. Hopefully it mellows with age.
