Shed Update

For some reason you were interested in my shed. Now this is a most uninteresting and strictly utilitarian shed, 21 years old and made of wood and rotting - see picture above. (We don't have a garage - or rather it has been converted into living space). Besides the base of the walls. A quarter of the floor had rotted too, in fact the whole thing should be torn down and thrown away. But the thought of having to demolish and then take to the tip the old shed and then spend several hundreds of pounds on a new one made me resolve to try and effect some repairs. If they last even a few years it will have been worth it. Anyway here is the shed with its new cladding. The floor has been relaid on battens and now consists of laminate flooring panels left over from other jobs.

KitKatCot's Avatar Oh, you have to fight to keep your shed going, ours was rotting at the bottom and then we found a guy who cut out the rotting timbers and replaced them.Smile

Withy Brook's Avatar Great work!
I just wish that the damage to the WI Hut, put up in about 1924, was similar. From the outside it does not look much worse. Sadly the uprights are rotten a long way up. The floor is collapsing due to the bearers below rotting away. And so it goes. It has been condemned and will cost too much to replace by such a small community, although the decision to demolish and have our meetings permanently elsewhere has not been formally made yet.

Mountainear's Avatar Your WI hut reminds me of our old Village Hall - goodness knows what stopped the floor collapsing altogether. Some events came with a 'health' warning - no dancing or vigorous foot stamping!
