Hi again all!
How busy can life get?!! A Lincoln Mark 8 to restore as well as a country squire, oh and a full time job, a family, 2 parents in their nineties and...........
Anyway, time to get on with the crown vic I think. But I need more space (don't we all).
This has arrived in the shape of a 30 year old wooden 8' by 6' shed! Yes I could build an extension to the garage, but this shed is free :woot:
It was my Wife's dads shed for 20 years, then he unfortunately died (God rest his soul, poor guy), his Wife then moved into a smaller house and the shed got dismantled and moved to a relatives garden where it stayed for about 3 years laid flat on the garden!
Then it got moved to an allotment where it stayed for about 3 years.
The allotment owner gave it up due to ill health and I took charge of the shed.
Here is the poor thing in the allotment awaiting dismantling and transportation
Here's myself and my lovely Wife enjoying a moment while demolition takes place
and my young 9 year old son looking on
Here it is in our garden awaiting resto...
the shed has now been completely restored by myself and my Wife over the last 2 weeks and hopefully will be assembled this weekend. I'll tell you what, its simpler restoring a shed than a car! For a shed thats as old as this there wasn't much rot really. The roofing felt had been partially replaced by black poly sheeting but the water has taken its toll of the 2 roof panels and the bottom corners of the walls and floor. But its has all been replaced with good stuff and thoroughly waterproofed. Here's to another 30 years!
Here's the door restored and painted in my garage!
The reason for the shed is so I can take a door in one a time and work on it in peace and have a bit more space.
This door for example that is now hanging from the roof of my garage will be the first in!
All welding has been done on the door now so it just needs a bit of panel beating and prepping and priming.
Here's hoping for a good weekend so I can get this shed up and weatherproofed :uk:
