    Jock thats a very impressive shed well done

    Just checked out your web page beautiful work on the steam machines, loved the photographs of Bright have been there a few times love the region.
    Being down is the low side of being up it shows the road ahead is a steep climb but at the top the view is always special. Then we just coast along till we hit the trough again. Sometimes when coasting we pick up speed and the steep climbs pass by like your on a plain.

    Hi mate , just seen your pic`s of the new shed and still drooling. When you get it fitted out do you reckon we Daylesford Boys can come up and have a squiz. We should be starting ours in about 6-8 weeks. Questions ! how many sq mtrs is it and how high are the walls, love the idea of the mezzanine area above the offices. Good luck with the rest of the project.

    Cheers Col.

    You are quite welcome to find your way north the shed is due for completion mid Feb so I'l let everyone know when it happens.
    It is a 500sqm shed with 4m walls I don't know if we will be able to use the area above the offices and what load it would carry, knowing OH&S rules we would need railings and special stairs oh for the good old days.

    I was wondering how the Charlton and Donald sheds were fairing in the Vic Floods. Think the Charlton shed would be flooded as my son-in laws parents are just around the corner and they have waist deep water throughout the house

    Wait to get access to our shed is like watching grass grow. The local council seems to be taking forever to put in the finishing touches. The early Feb date has now blown out to mid march with no dust extractor and we have to pay for installation of machinery.

    Pouring the slab for the dust extraction system today,which we will have to install at our expense. We had a good general meeting last night where a nurse from Bendigo community health gave a talk on cancers affecting men.
    I have also setup a blog for Mensheds Bendigo http://cjstein.blogspot.com/
