Moving...again (and never again!)

The things we do that keep us from being with our Patrol.

Postby Johnny Roadkill » Thu Jan 10, 2019 6:10 am

So, my time with a big workshop shed is no more...until the new one is built...

We haved moved house for what I hope is the last time - what an adventure when you have a 12x6m shed full of um...stuff (less polite terms come to mind but it's a family friendly forum).

Fortunately we found a guy nearby with humongous sheds to spare who is storing my car and parts collection until we can get a shed built at the new address. The plan is to build a shed the same size here, perhaps only 2.7m high walls instead of 3m but otherwise much the same with a few tweaks to better suit my...um, I mean our needs. I am indeed lucky to have a wife who understands my need to keep multiple cars that don't actually function as cars...yet.

Wow, what a nice shed!

But......who builds a shed like this then leaves it empty? :D

Good luck in your new home. Maybe a good opportunity to build the new shed to your liking.

Have you ever considered installing a lift? If so, maybe the 3m high will be in order (~10 ft).

Fair question - he bought a disused fish farm, filled the tanks and concreted the floors...5 huge sheds, lives in 1 and has rented 1 out so far plus my cars in another. Eventually they'll be a good money spinner for him.

A lift would be a delight, haven't ruled it out yet but might be pushing my wife's understanding nature a bit far...

Thank you - move is done but still a lot of sorting to do at the new place as well as the shed build...no rest for the addicted !
