    Both lol. I got the blocks all concreted in, and the bearers all levelled ready to take the floor. I have applied membrane to the underside of the floor ready to be placed on the bearers tomoro. Took delivery of the felt as well, and also ordered the rest of the wood I need. It's being delivered Thursday. I have the hospital tomoro which may be a blessing as its to be snowing or raining. On Thursday I'll get the sides membraned, and sheeted ready for my wood slabs to be applied. Friday should see the roof going on, and the weekend to get it all completed. I've not been paid this month, which will scupper my plans to get the machine started. However it will give me time to do some clearing out in my shed. It's been freezing, but to be honest never really took notice as I'm enjoying doing what I'm doing.

    So what are your plans for tying it to the metal shed Alex? Are you leaving the doors on the metal shed in place?? Suppose it depends on your planned layout & what kit you have to go in there, just thinking that if you left them & they were usable it might cut down the amount of space you had to heat in the winter although the nuisance factor might outway any gain on saved fuel.

    I'm leaving the metal shed intact and lockable where my tool boxes ect will be housed. There will be a a wooden frame attached to the shed which makes it easier to join the two. Just woke up to find the weather forecast to be correct, feckin snow again. Supposed to rain later, and I'll get back to it tomoro. I'm looking to have a log burner in it so heating the 2 won't be an issue. I'll be removing the metal roof and replacing with wood as the condensation is bad.

    Yet again, the snow slows (not stops) the build. Rain forecast this afternoon, and its back to it tomorrow.

    Funny we didn't have any snow at all when you posted a few hours ago & I'm only a few miles away from you. Chucking it down now though so we haven't escaped it lol.
