Just to bring people up to speed my wife and I recently completed our purchase of a new home. By Christmas we have to move out of our existing home and transport 30 years of life to the new gaff...the fact that the new home is run down (almost derelict in places) makes it all rather exciting.
On the positive front the new home has a rather super wooden building that will for the time being serve as my new games room (Mrs Shed wants to convert it into an air bnb chalet). This old building was used as an office by the previous owners.
The building itself is about 30ft by 20ft and has a Loo, central heating and a kitchenette all are in desperate need of repair or replacement. The building is surrounded by brambles and ferns, covered in ivy and in some areas in need of repair.
As work progresses I'll keep you posted...

A big job ahead there, I wish you all the very best as Shed 2 takes shape.ReplyDelete
It has great possibilities!ReplyDelete
Quite a job ahead, but the possibilities are endless.ReplyDelete
Oooh that looks like the beginning of a fantastic looking shed, invite your wargaming buddies over to help decorate inside and out that will save time.ReplyDelete
Looks like a lot of work to do to get it ship-, errmm, shed-shape! :)ReplyDelete
Plenty of potential there. I've seen far worse on the TV show George Clark's Amazing Spaces that were refurbished and turned into wonderful structures.ReplyDelete
That's not a "shed" - bigger ground plan than my house!ReplyDelete
You are off to an impressive start!
How odd to have a building so furnished (such as it is) when you purchase it. Good luck with the project! May you not find anything unexpected!ReplyDelete
How wonderful! Best of luck with the renovation.ReplyDelete
Very good, you could see the potential straight away and now clear it is shaping up to a great space. That is a superb breeze-block base and should make the shed much better protected from ‘lift’ by nearby tree roots (my ordinary shed has become twisted by them). Plenty to look forward to.ReplyDelete
Wow ... that should turn out to be a great gaming space. Looking forward to seeing you get settled in. Congrats on the new home!ReplyDelete
