Doesn't appear to be much wrong with your existing workshop in the photo Bob.
Did they tell you which 1st of May Bob?

I can only assume by your remarks that that is how you used to treat your customers Richard  ;D ;D  and the date given was and still is 1st of May 2007 and if your remarks about the existing shed are aimed at the bungalow ..........you now have her in the kitchen to deal with .........she was last seen heading at a very rapide rate of knots southward  :P :P

Look again Bob your chickens have escaped or do they fly South in the summer along with your good lady?
As for my customers Bob, I used to be a lot more specific, I always started a week on Tuesday.

Richard ;)

PS Have been keeping an eye open but have not seen your good lady fly over yet. Does she have sat nav?  ;D ???

Very nice.
Are there any plans for sheds anywhere (preferably free) as I want to build a new workshop which will be about18ft x 8ft with a 3ft deep x 6ft long extention on the back left hand side. Cost to buy such a beast will be very prohibitive to the finance manager!!!!

Right it is now the 1st of May 2007 and despite Richards remarks the new workshop has arrived , the two men arrived here this-morning at 9.00am having left Birmingham at 6.00am it took them just two hours to put together and to prove that i am telling the truth here are a couple of pics ,no doubt Richard will have something to say but I don't care I can't spell I can't see but I do have a nice new shed to play in , and also my beloved MG is back on the road
                                                                                      Cheers

Still say a shed in the front garden is a funny idea Bob. ???
Still once you get the sink and the washing machine plumbed in I've no doubt your good lady will be over the moon with it. ;D
I notice you have 2 windows, very nice, what are the 2 holes for?

There that wasn't too bad was it ?

What front garden ? maybe if you had a front garden you may know the difference , could be that I used a lower case "i" just to give you something to pick up on still if that's what floats your boat

Sorry Bob it will take more than that to float my boat.

Seriously though, very impressive shed and I'm glad to hear your car has been resurrected. You poser you.

I haven't dared to post in this topic before now, not wishing to reveal the chaotic horror of my workbench, but having had a bit of a tidy up I thought I might share it. My workshop is actually quite small, ( 10 feet by 6 feet) and is a divided section on the end of the garage which was probably intended for storing garden tools, although, given the size of the garden, a knife, fork and pair of scissors to cut the "lawn" would be perfectlly adequate. I put in a false insulated floor, and covered the walls and ceiling with fibreboard so the electric convector makes it quite snug in the winter. As can be seen, I have tried to make the most of the space by really packing things in but it's not bad really. Paint spraying is done in the garage or in the garden depending on the weather.

When we lived on our farm, I had a 40' x 20' shed. Now I live at the beach, I have a 10' x 10' shed. However, at least I don't have to walk as far, as it's quite compact  :} , and nowhere near as neat and tidy as Colin's.  :embarrassed:  The fan is there because, in the summer (now) when I open the shed up, the temperature can be over 40 degrees C  :o Some photos below.

I put in a false insulated floor...

This is intriguing because I have read how several members are insulating their shed/shop floors. How is this done? What materials do you use?
My floor is just standard 3/4"-thick tongue & groove. Quite cold. So in order to insulate it, would I need to fit a layer of, say, 1"-thick polystyrene on top of the T&G? And if so, then would it be okay to lay some sheets of 3/4" tanalised chipboard on top of the poly? Would this make the floor 'bouncy'?
Would really appreciate your help/advice with this - thanks.

whatever you use you can put thetype of boards they use to floor a loft nice and cheap and they can be glued together on all sides, don't worry the foam is dense enough to hold it I have a foot of concrete supported by 8" of foam 20' foot by 10' go for the foam with a reflective layer then heat will be reflected back to you.
