Aaaah... well... it's not where I wanted it to be at by now between other stuff going on and the weather (either ridiculously hot or raining), however I have made a start on moving the fence which needs to be done first.


The footing for the fence post went in the other week:





And the weekend just gone saw me get the other two posts in. One had to bolt to the house (brick) and the other to the existing side fence (also brick).


I'll need to get some timber for the gate as I'm making it wider than the existing one (gotta be bigger than handlebar width this time) then the fence can move, shouldn't be too much longer!


Once that's done I can level the ground and prepare for formwork for the concrete. My housemate believes he has enough timber for formwork too...

Mate I've got the itch real bad to get stuck in, cannot wait to get the shed done! I need to finalise the plans but can't do that until I've got the ground levelled and I can see how much the fall is.


Fingers crossed for the Trumpy!

So no more real progress and it hasn't stopped raining for weeks, so getting out to do the fence has been impossible... until yesterday avo' after work! Finally a brief respite although still showering, but I finally got the fence rails up:





Still have spare timber for the gate framework and I believe there are spare hinges here too, so I should be able to get that done real soon now.


That will mean all that's left is to move the paling's and lock from the old fence, then it can get torn down and I can start levelling for the shed floor at last!

I love this forum where you can see CB750 and XS650 cafe and bobber builds and then find a gem like this. Keep up the good work - looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

Cheers mate, yeah agreed, lots of diversity here!


I'll hopefully be hanging the gate on the fence today as there's actually some blue sky around finally, but then I'm flying out on hol's tomorrow so the paling's will have to wait 'til I get back next week.


Hopefully by the time I go back to work on the 18th I'll have a whole new fence with the old one torn down and I can start levelling the ground for the shed base.


I'm itching like mad to get this restoration underway again!

Ok, just need to move the paling's from the old fence and it's done!





Frustrating that it's so close, but flying out to Melbourne tomorrow for a few nights... I'm still hopeful I can start levelling ground by the time I go back to work... but we'll see...

Awesome Jeff! 1952... that's a new one  :P  I want those forks though... although those would be 26" wheels... too small... bugger!


As for where I'm at, got the fence done:





Started clearing 7.5 square metres of river rock:





And yesterday started levelling but got distracted by a disused water pipe that goes nowhere:





Should be ready for the form work for the concrete soon then once I've got that sorted I should be able to finalise the shed plans and get some concrete laid...
