Nobody else in my family has a key to the garage.
Thiught I would just check if one bay is enough to make a secure insulated vette garage , wont be accesible from main workshop as lower floor level due to slope of the site, that way I gain enough height for mezzanine above 👍

Slow progress but 2/3rds of the old shed removed , just left the current vette section up til the new vette section is floored and a mez up. Out for a wee blast to get the motor hot and use the brakes. Its a shed shot Saturday 😀👍

It's looking good and a massive upgrade from the old shed!

We're switching houses and the new one has this 60' x 35' but the wife unit has first dibs on it for stables 🐴🐴 :cautious:

grow some ⚽🏀🎾🏉 s
by my reckoning you have space for 6 cars nicely spaced, so 1 two poster ramp, 1 space for valeting, that leaves you 4 spaces, so start looking at another vette for the fleet :)

Balls still attached thanks 😁 this works for me as that shed is quite some distance from the house keeping all the horse shit, flys and mess well away. I'll erect one closer

Yes, thanks james, feel so lucky to have got this one sent over when I did, apparently the cost of shipping a container has increased sharply this year. Was wondering if this will imact the prices of imported parts for our cars🤔
Any excuse to raise the price... 😭

Looking great! I'm still a bit worried by all that timber standing up, within falling distance of the Corvette! :eek: :D

That timber gone now, the vette dosent live in that bit yet, it was just a test fit. Will end up in there tho , seperate from main shed/ workshop area👍

Surprised you're leaving that fab "estate" you have up there!😊
It's just too big now and being listed I can't build a decent garage. We'll miss it but hey ho. We struggled to find something and even considered France 🤔 Mad, what's the plan with all the lovely old wood from the original shed? Wall panelling ?

I am hoping to salvage enough to put a 16x10’ lean to on the end of the new shed for mowers , bikes and any thing else that normally clutters up yr garage and you end up moving stuff to make space to work in, i hope to have the big one clutter free and super organised👍
