Brodie's Workshop
« on: May 05, 2015, 02:49:48 »
So I recently bought my first house, which had neither a garage nor proper shed. All that there was to work with was a 3mx3m garden shed that I could hardly stand in. And so the saving began.
I have bought together enough funds with the help of my father (get your crap out of my house funds) So within the next few days I will be getting a workshop built. Should be roughly around 350 square foot, enough room to work and store a few things.

Had to do a bit of the site prep my self, plumbing and such.

Anyway here is it, I will post progress as it happens.

Thanks mate, going to take a bit of inspiration from your workshop build, maybe even a few ideas might be borrowed.

I start my work week tomorrow, the day they are due to start the slab, so I will miss most of the action this week as I work 12 hour days.

Alright so here is the actual shape of the shed and a predicted floor lay out. Off to bed for me, have to earn the cash to build the insides yet.

I think you've underestimated the beer space requirements?

Hmm I had though that as well. The fridge should hold a bit. If not there is an esky in the boat. My current plan is to sell the boat and get some solar panels for the house.

LOL sign me up, I see all the important stuff and as long as the BEER section is regularly replenished, it should suffice ;D

I think I need a bigger beer section as well, my dorm fridge just about holds enough home brew to keep me happy for a few days.

Be watching looks awesome, I love having a nice place to work in, half the reason I bought the house I'm in now is because of the oversized 2 car garage.

Going to make all the difference I recon. All I had was a portable workbench a driveway and some space in front of my boat.

Subscribed ;)

That's about the size of mine. I got more room than I thought I would, but beware, it fills up quick :P

And do yourself a favor, build a "lean to" shed on the side of the shop, or buy a small shed for the lawn stuff. You'll be happier without the grass clippings getting into everything.
