Wayhay! :)) Finally after six hours the shed is up and standing strong, I even managed to do all the pilot holes for the shed and cut the felt woo :))

Tonight we've had a quick drive to B+Q and picked up two packs of bright pink lino tiles (which I'm sure the boys will be more than happy about!), a flowery door handle and some locks which my OH and I will fit tomorrow after uni and I'll upload photos of the finished product! :)

This is how it all started, a very scary sight indeed:

Wazzle tried and tested the floor boards to make sure they were all secure:

And I made a good job of attaching the beams to the floor:

A quick tea break:

and a few more nails:

and Mr Kitty tested out the felt:

And then decided he'd make a much better job as a weathervane:

TADA! The finished snazzy shed:

It's been a very productive day indeed :) Will upload the complete shed photos tomorrow after we both have a very long lie down! (And a few well deserved biscuits!) :))

Haha! That was one well deserved tea break my arms were aching after holding all the panels together after what seemed an age! :)

I wish that I could do the sort of jobs that you are so good at. I am always waiting for my husband to help, so the jobs that I need help with never seem to get done.

great job :)
We're getting a new shed soon & after the last one we put up the company delivering it are doing it for us :p

Haha! I'd love to see photos of your snazzy new shed too... When we get a bigger place in the not to distant future, we plan to get a much bigger shed..possibly with real windows! And of course to get the company to come out and put it up :p
