well done work !!
Looks pretty secure (or at least as secure as said big ass padlock will be).
Looking at those lovely big windows, though, they seem to be a bit of a weak point - both from an ingress point of view but also that they'll give any scrotes a good chance to check out all of the nice stuff inside. Are you planning to put any security film on them or anything?
yeah, windows will be an issue. Door hinges have straight through bolts, I plan to fit some bolts rather than screews to the bolt receiver and wall hinges, so even if equipped with the right screwdriver you couldn’t get the hinges off.
Im looking for some film, ideally security and thermal combined.
There is space for some secondary glazing panels, so some 6mm thick polycarbonate would be sufficient.
I also have some 12g blank firing “Alarms” from my airsoft days. One of those inside the door when on holiday (if that’s even a thing in the future) will at the very least alert the neighbours and require a new set of trousers for said scrote!
Mounting the hook for the middle hinge upside down also prevents the door being prized off the hinges - top and bottom hooks are more than enough to take the load.
I did think about doing that as I had the hinges off, I will likely do it when I bolt them through the frame.
Started boarding out
Lighting is in and connected to a junction box. When the spark does the rest of the house, will ask him to install the consumer unit (as he will need to run a new cable out to the workshop).
Tested my concept for the trunking and sockets.
I really like the aesthetics so will go with that. All wiring will be fed via the roof to enable easy access in the future for alternations.
When does the stripper pole go in?
That's in the back room.
Liking this a lot, on the sockets, did you not think about one with USB?
Also the conduit sockets are far easier to fix issues or make alterations.
Yeah, might put a USB one a socket, good idea!
Picture dump - Warning very OSB!!!
And I may have sliced through my work table!
Oriented Strand Board.
Ohh... never heard of it, let alone in that context; just looks like chipboard made with chunks - chunk-board.
Workshop is looking good. Now that you have work shop you can build a new cutting table.
There are a few engineered wood products that all look very similar but have a key differences.
Yeah I put a circular saw through one half of a saw horse, still usable similar to what you did.
Socket wise, may be worth looking at along these lines, reason being most put the USB over the plug, so if you have a tall adaptor it will cover the USB making its useless
I got a splinter looking at that. I was never a fan of composites. The tiniest bit of water damage and they turn into the bottom of a hamster cage.
-Hell, I'm currently rebuilding particle board cabinets that melted.
OSB isn’t too bad, I’m using OSB3 which is a higher grade designed to withstand more moisture ingress.
Im going to be pretty pissed if I get enough moisture inside the shed to cause an issue!
I did get a couple of splinters cutting all 18 of the boards up. I still haven’t done the roof, it’s a weird side 65-80cm by 155cm and I would need 12 panels that size which would generate loads of scrap off standard 120 x 240 panels. (8ft x 4ft in freedom units for you @Cheapskate )
Is it just me that cut all the sheets to 120 x 80cm strips & make up the rest from said 80 x 120's... ? That way you get 80 x 120 & 80 x 35; then trim some to get the bits you need that are any measurement narrower.
Granted; it ain't my shed, but...
Sweat build, all that foil insulation reminds me of buck in better call saul
Could you use masonite strip siding instead?
