    My "shed" build (first timer!)

    So I thought I'd better post a little update. Would you believe, it's taken me 11 months to get around to cladding this! I've been super busy with a complete garden overhaul and as the build was completely weather proof it got put on the back burner there until this past weekend! I had...

    My "shed" build (first timer!)

    Cheers for the comments chaps. To be totally honest I've not touched it since the last update. Being secure and waterproof before the winter fully set in was the main priority, as it happens, just today I've made a start on clearing the garden and I'm dismantling the old tin shed this...

    My "shed" build (first timer!)

    Ok so been a productive weekend! Roof EPDM on, kerb and gutter trims fitted, windows in and flashed, door frame wrapped, fitted and flashed just the door to wrap now but I'm watertight and secure at last hooray! :) By pure coincidence the bostick flashband I've used to seal...

    My "shed" build (first timer!)

    I say that but I have not picked anything as yet, I'm assuming a polythene sheet material will do the job, I'll need to have a look. You're right about that, even last night it was gusting up to 50mph here, I'm seriously concerned about this tarp I've currently got on the roof, really need to...

    Helps greatly HOJ, thanks. Thankfully confirms Fitz and I are not bonkers for sheathing the outside in OSB. Thanks again!

    My "shed" build (first timer!)

    Thanks for all the info Fitz, much appreciated. You're right, a lot of that cost is in the trims and also despite the 30% difference in size, I still need the 5L of WBA and the 2.5L of contact adhesive. I've been back and forth to a few suppliers and I've managed to get that price down...

    My "shed" build (first timer!)

    Your windows are a work of woodworking art, extremely impressed and I'm sure they will be well worth the work! I'm going EPDM same as you, seems like the simplest/most reliable solution. Can I ask what you used as a sub-facia at the front and rear ends of your roof joists? I was going to...

    My "shed" build (first timer!)

    Hi Terry, cheers for the reply. Yes you're quite right and I had originally planned to build it with no sheathing on the outside however I needed to give it structure, quick, the weather has taken a really bad turn for the worst here and we had some heavy wind there on Friday just after I...

    My "shed" build (first timer!)

    Made some good progress in the last 48 hours. Got the roof made, went 6x2 600mm centres with a decent overhang front, smaller one rear and sides, the sides I hung an extra joist using a timber "ladder" supported by a triangular frame on each side wall. I cut birdsmouth's on the joists and also...

    My "shed" build (first timer!)

    Hey mate, thanks, yeah looks ok. So this window I obviously removed the vents and the mini-sill then simply opened up fully, did the window first then the frame after with the window closed, the double window I'll need to remove the windows from the frame I think as they dont open out enough...

    My "shed" build (first timer!)

    Cheers for the tip, we're due some rain tomorrow actually so have propped it up in the middle with a long pole which will hopefully do the trick. Had a couple of hours spare tonight so wrapped one of the windows, turned out good I think: BEFORE AFTER
