Shed update

Finally, six weeks late we have our shed kit on site.

After suffering weeks of BS from the agent I finally lost patience and rang head office a couple of times. The second of those calls produced the desired result. The agent rang yesterday with a tale of woe that went on for about ten minutes and almost had me on the floor splitting my sides with laughter. Anyway, the upshot was that the shed was to arrive on site crack of dawn today, and, I was to get one of his men to help with construction free of charge.
Crack of dawn turned out to be after lunch (mid afternoon actually) and the offer of free help was turned down because I really don't want any more dealings with this guy, enough is enough.

My fearless leader is looking brighter now that the new sewing room is in sight and come Monday morning we will be cracking on. I think we should be able to handle it ourselves.

Congratulations on finally getting the shed on site! That's an exciting step.

Assembling and erecting ours was a fun job and didn't take too long either. These kits are pretty easy to work with.

We put the maximum amount of bracing that we could into ours and it paid off. It's a very rigid structure that we were able to line with frames and gyproc and have had no problem with cracking (caused by movement of the building from wind) at all.
