    Been about six weeks now since concrete was poured, got side tracked doing other work around the garden , finally started assembly on Sunday afternoon

    I am using 12mm thick butyl tape to sit the panels and posts on , fantastic stuff really seals well

    Yes going to put a lean to on the back for garden stuff and extra storage , the wife wanted me to section off some of the workshop for a utility room but there is enough room at the back
    I have put in all the drainage for a toilet and sink in the workshop

    Managed to get loads done over the weekend with plenty of help from the family, it was playing on my mind how to put up the A frame
    I did think of assembling it on the ground then lifting it up with a crane , then came up with the idea of tower scaffold set to the correct pitch of the ridge and a prop to hold the other end to align the upright bolts
    It worked a treat 3 of us lifted the ridge beam rested on the scaffold one held it at the top other 2 lifted onto the prop and put the bolts in , repeated the process on the other side then I got on the scaffold and bolted the ridge together, great when a plan comes together
    Hopefully next weekend get the front and doors sorted

    I remember having to fit the main steel on my build.

    8" x 6" I beam , took 10 people to move from front of house round to garage . Thne it had to be lifted 2 feet at a time onto temp scaffold .Go the other end and do the same ,6 times in total . Treated them all to a fish supper and a can at the end

    Just hop I have got my calculations right for the 2 post lift, used the wife`s Chrysler grand voyager to scale from, the front should fit under the steel and give me enough room to stand under , i1me 5 foot 8, I am putting a dormer type roof between the middle steels on the left they are about 13 foot apart , the car roof will go up in this space

    Its pay back time for mine Kev , all the years they have lived with me and I have looked after them and their cars outside on the drive in all weather

    Mind you the were complaining that they work all week and now they are working weekends , and missing the Grand Prix yesterday LOL

    I said what about me , not in the best of health coming up to retirement plus still working full time and still managed to work 12 hours on Saturday (I was shagged after though)
