    Default BobL's shed fit.

    My "Shed builders Recommendation Perth" thread inadvertently turned into a bit of a shed build/fit WIP but before it goes too far I thought I might start a new thread detailing the fit out.

    Here is a 120 panorama of the blank canvas.

    I just finished the second coat of floor paint and I can begin to move in tomorrow evening.

    Still a lot todo. Once I have moved 3 machines off the back veranda and two chainsaw mills off the brick paving (SWMBO will be right pleased) I then get to move 90% of the crap from the old shed into the new one so I can rebuild the old one

    The floor looks great. What product did you use?

    Yeah I'm very pleased about the way it came out and definitely worth waiting the 12 weeks for the concrete to cure.

    Product is Berger Jet Dry Heavy Duty Gloss. 4L tin was enough to do two coats and left about 1/2 L to do some touch ups If I need it - must find a smaller tin to put it in.

    I'm normally not that crazy about plumbing but I'm quite excited about having a sink in my shed.

    Laundry trough and stand free from my sisters demolition plus one can of off white touch up paint.

    Lab tap courtesy of the skip at work - massive demolition of a large lab building at work.

    HDPE splash back and shelves also came from the skip.

    Sink is not connected to sewer (just drains to garden outside) but I will arrange a diverter so that the grey water can continue to drain onto the water.

    Noticed the air outlet next to sink. Is that for blow dry hands?

    It's actually there for blowing dry machine parts after they have been washed.

    I didn't think of hands but it wouldn't be too hard to rig up a pressure lowering chamber that one could stick ones hands into to blow dry.

    Like the floor. Like the overhead power outlets.

    Default Move in day

    Today was move the machinery off the back veranda day and move the heavy machinery from old to new shed while my nephew was around to help me.

    This is where we got to by 5pm.
    Fit1.jpg


    The Hercus lathe still needs to be assembled and the bandsaw needs a bit of attention. The machine under the grey cover is a 10" planer thicknesser. Machine positions are approximate but good enough to start setting up the DC ducting. The big DC is going outside and then the machines on that wall can be better spaced out. Eventually my WW lathe will go in the remaining space.

    The small bench on the back wall is going to be replaced by a small all metal welding booth

    The big grey box in the middle of the floor is a set of map drawers.
    drawers.jpg


    I did a practice layout of measuring tools and I still had room to put my knives and cutters etc.
    drawers2.jpg


    Each drawer can hold a very large amount of stuff and it's very easy to see where anything is. What I plan to do is build a central bench with these drawers underneath it. Meanwhile is going to be useful for a place to put stuff on.

    Only a couple minor injuries, I mashed my left hand pinky when the chuck from the DP fell onto it and a lump of steel took a fair size chip from the freshly painted floor.

    G'day Bob, nice shed, so you've chipped the floor paint already? Better you do it than someone else, now it's christened.

    Geoff.
