With the old Spagshed getting a bit tired, and the 'overflow' into the garden not being entirely attractive a plan was put into effect to create what could only be described as 'Spagshed2'.
So, a little research was done to see what was allowed, and this is part of the email from the nice man at the local council...
"As long as the shed is more than five metres away from the rear of the property, doesn't stand higher than, 3metres with a flat roof or 4metres with a pitched roof, and also doesn't exceed more than 50% of your rear garden, this development can be done without the need for planning."
Hmm, so we could get away with a 2 story barn that covers 1/2 the garden then!!! However, some sort of logic prevailed and we settled on something a bit more discrete :-)
Dismantlage of the old shed started on April 6th and took 2 evenings, then the construction started on April 8th...
And at the end of the day we had somewhere to hide from the weather :-)
The doors & walls went on the next morning.
Then over the following weekend the fixtures & fittings went on (see the shiny doorknob!)
Easy access, loads of room for junk, and plenty of indoor space to work on things
Now we just need to get some turf down (or maybe just Hammerite the mud green ?).
