    Default Doug3030's Open Shed Day 14 October 2018

    Probably about time I started a new thread for my 2018 Open Shed Day, which was announced in my thread for the 2017 event which had to be canceled due to family disturbances.

    Sunday 14 October is the date, at my shed in Hoppers Crossing, Melbourne (address will be forwarded to all who indicate their intention to attend by PM the week before the event)

    Doors will open at 11.00am and close at 4.00pm. We will provide a BBQ lunch and those who wish to can make a donation towards the food.

    BYO drinks. Alcohol permitted in moderation. No playing with the tools and machinery if you have consumed alcohol.

    Further details will be advised as the event evolves over the coming months. Mark your calendars now if you have not done so already.

    Please RSVP in this thread or subscribe so that you get notification of updates.



    Cheers

    Doug

    Due to a recent development, I may have to relocate to a new shed before this event.

    The owners of my current shed have hit on hard times and are putting it on the market.

    For family reasons I cannot move back to my own home in Queensland yet so we are looking for somewhere close to where we are now but time will tell.

    If the house is bought by an investor, we may be able to stay but we do not know what is going to happen.

    If it is not bought by an investor, I just hope that it is bought by someone like a woody who can use and appreciate the sheds and the 15 amp circuits and they don't go to waste.

    If you are reading this and are looking to buy an investment property in a good growth area, with a good long-term tenant who loves the place and wants to stay for at least another five years, shoot me a PM.

    I will keep everyone informed on how things go but hopefully the event will go ahead as planned and only the venue may change.

    Cheers

    Yes, we do have to move. We start moving into the new shed on 6 June, so it looks like we will be going ahead with the open shed day at the new address. We are only a few minutes drive away from the old place.

    Have a look at this - the shed is bigger than the house.

    The way I'm guessing everyone who has ever graced the forums would think it should be...

    The move aside (never fun) hopefully the new digs are even better than your last place!!

    Nice Doug very nice,
    Looks like it's a drive up very quickly in reverse kind of shed then break for unloading.
    Excellent hope the new home will accommodate the new fantastic workbench too.

    Cheers Matt

    When we looked at the shed ... umm, I mean house ... there was a gantry crane hanging from one of the I-beams in the shed - hoping its still there when we move in. That would make it good for unloading.

    It must have been cloudy down your way Doug. New place close to the old one, and an awesome shed. Talk about every cloud having a silver lining!

    Hope the move goes smoothly, and look after your back.

    Lovely shed dude.
