Garden Art Studio (aka large shed) build

As some of you may have read, I'm attempting to build an Art Studio/Workshop in my (small) garden. I am building this myself bit by bit, pretty much designing it on the fly in my head. I am hoping to end up with something a bit like this....



....heres my progress over the last couple of weeks.

1) Levelled garden and dug shallow foundations, started laying gravel and breeze blocks.



2) Finished laying gravel and breeze block foundation



3) Truck load of timber arrived, started building a frame for the floor


4) Floor frame completed


5) Wall frame started


5) More work on Wall frame



6) Wall Frame almost complete


7) Roof Rafters installed


8) Another photo, just 'cause I felt like it


I'm now out of cash, so it'll be another month before I do any more work. I know you're probably not that interested, but as I did say I would post up some pictures, I thought what the hell!

P.S. The building itself is nigh on perfectly spirit level perfect, it's the fence behind that's wonky!

Nice work so far.

(Not being sarcastic lol - I know squat about construction except that I have no idea how to do it, so kudos to you! )

Smile Hippy childhood

Reminds me of the greenhouse my dad built behind the house where it couldn't be seen from the street when I was a kid...

Looks good, Roy. You should put the fridge in before you finish the walls; otherwise, you'll limit the amount of beer you can put in there.

You're the second person who has suggested they're graves mim....if the coppers turn up wanting to rip up me floor, I'm going to be mighty annoyed.

That's cool Ray, adds some extra floor space.

I love anything like this, alas our ceilings are about a foot and a half lower than yours, so to do the same, the kids would have to use it lying down and crawling sas commando style lol.

Exclamation Arch

Nice, Ray. The crossbeam coming off the door jamb will hit an adult in the forehead if he tries to enter, but children can scamper through unscathed.

I see what you did there.

I have used a loft bed for several years now. The space underneath has become a library of sorts, with two book cases and a model display case. The air gets stuffy up by the ceiling, but a fan fixes that.

THAT looks like fun!

I've always wanted a bunk bed ^_^ Then my mum randomly got one made for me in some weird attempt to compensate for my bunkbed-depraved childhood but I couldn't really use it because the ceiling fan was like a couple of feet away from the top bunk. O_o

Today I am aching like never before. I put on the sheet material (OSB) for my walls and roof. It was thick and there was 16 sheets of the stuff. It was heavy. I ache.

Putting the membranes, roof felt and shiplap cladding shouldn't be as tricky. I shall post some more pictures in a day or two (probably).

Post Dessert creature

I love ice cream sundaes. I think it's an effect of not having dessert for 18 years...

I think the love for ice cream sundaes is a universal side effect of seeing one on the menu, whether one resides in the desert or not!
