Minety,
Should you open a new section on shed building?
Cheers

OK, I'll slice off the shed building bits...I'm at work at the moment and they are watching my every move :shock: so I'll do it sometime over the weekend.

Yes Stan, only been working since last May, and I don't have time for any play....why do people do this work thing.

Ian, now I am home, I can see the pictures, I thought it was your house!!!

Will be splitting the shed thing shortly (when I've had a cuppa tea).

Gerry, I had no intention of getting this old or I may have stuck it out a bit longer.

Funny you never really give up work but you do the work you like you like instead. But best of all there is no start and finish times to adhere to.

Always good to have natural light in a cave, so sun roof is a good idea.... <216

The build is looking great! can i just stick my 2 pennath in and say dont use felt on the roof of any kind, Fibreglass it, (have a look on you tube if you need to its very easy to do though) as a builder of almost 40 years i have made more money out of felt roof leaks than most other roof repairs and fibre glass is only around 50% dearer than felt and will last you a life time.
good luck with your build what ever you chose :)

Our flat roofs are GRP covered and seems to be the way to go, on a slopping roof it should be fantastic. Shop around for materials prices vary. Hard work and you can't hang around.

Ha Ha Mark, want a job? We have a 1000sqft that needs a recoat due to being used as a children's playground before we moved in.
