It’s all flat packed now, ready to be picked up tomorrow 😁 I’ll need to replace a few bits but this was understood when I bought it..

A bit of TLC Mark and you will have a lovely shed there :thumbsup:
Might be worth lashing on some wood preservative to the 4 corner upright joins....and also the bottoms that sit on the floor......while you have it all in bits :thumbsup:

True joe, it was the first thing I took of mate… it will need some new strapping along the bottom and on one side of the apex … nothing too bad tho … and it definitely needs a new base lol
Can you use the base board and just replace the stringers? if you replace the lot I would definitely put at least two extra stringers in place to make sure the base doesn't sag

It’s possible joe, tho I would rather build a new one to be honest plus it’s very possible I will have to run the saw over the old base just to get it in the van

Was thinking the same bill , I want to coat the roof panels as well , I’m thinking on replacing the the 4 beams on the apex so the roof panels house themselves better…. It’s a project right enough 😂

well if any of the old base can be saved you can always use it for another project like a cold frame for the mrs
