Vaseline

Ross,

A bit of vaseline on the screws also helps keep the epoxy from bonding them; they should just unscrew afterwards and you can clean the holes out with a drill.

Kit

Hi Alan_c,

The shed was basically a kit made by Paramount, I think they've since gone out of business. I bought it through a company called Sheds'n'More, the whole experience was not a good one,...

Pics

Pics as mentioned...

The side walls have studs 600mm on center, and the rear wall 450mm on center (it will eventually load-bear a mezzanine for storage of items sometimes referred to as "crap")....

Fridge Vacuum

No problems Ross,

I did some research when I was looking into vacuum clamping and found a few DIY systems using an old fridge compressor. They were all a bit of overkill for what I needed at the...

Hi Red,

Yes, a room at the back was going to be the original plan, but when I drew it out it would end up making my shed a bit too small at the front. With the MM being about 3300mm by 2300mm and...

Great Service

Hi All,

Just though I'd add my 2 cents (pennies?) worth.
