Another little update on this.

Well i got the frames sanded up and hung up to spray black



Set in some keyhole hangar fixings in the backs so the frames can be hung flush to the wall and nice and sturdy too



Here they are after paint and with the backing boards cut to size, its nice to see the wood grain showing through the paint i think



And these are the pictures to be framed, i wanted them to look quite original and like something you may see when walking around a VW dealership, so i went for a large boarder around the image



this shows how big the boarder will be



And off to the framers we go, picked them up a week later and was over the moon with them





For now though they will have to stay in the house until i get a garage



I also treat myself to a new air orbital sander, its a Mirka ROS625CV, ive been looking at getting one for a while now and thought as i use orbitals a lot in work anyways, its worth getting myself a decent one which i can also use for garage/car stuff too. After seeing a thread on here where someone used one to do some wet sanding on their car i figured it could maybe be handy for that too. They do a 5mm or 2.5mm orbit, so i went for the 2.5mm orbit as i thought that would be best for wet sanding too if i decide to in the future.

Nice job on the frames....
Sander will need a fair size compressor...6.2 bar (90 psi) and 481 l/min...
481 l/min = 17 CFM/FAD = 25CFM compressor displacement....

Nice frames !

You'll need 3 phase for a +25CFM compressor - 240v 13A will give you about 14CFM max

thanks again for the replies, as for the sander/compressor, we have a big 3 phase rotary screw compressor at work so i will be using that, i know these things are thirsty and thats why i hadnt bought one before now, but i was getting sick of using electric sanders so i thought it would be worth the jump.

Ok so i never thought this update would ever come, sorry its taken so long to post any updates but we finally found ourselves a house, its exactly what we were after and (most importantly) has room to build garage.

So we viewed the house, the next day we put an offer in and it was accepted, 7 weeks later (Friday just gone) we got the keys, it felt an age but glad it all went through a lot quicker than it normally would have.

Obviously i got my priorities right and got straight on with the garage

That's enough talking, onto some pics, i know you all like pictures.

A view from the driveway looking to where (hopefully) the garage will be



Garden





Made a start ripping up the decking the day after we got the keys








Marked out a rough size id like the garage, this is 7m x 4m although im thinking to make it 7.5m x 4m to make it to 30m squared, i havent looked too much into planning etc yet but if anyone could give any advice or suggestions regarding positioning or size etc that would be great, im looking at getting a dual pitched roof but i know this will cause height issues and require planning permission, also being so close to the boundary?




More clearing



Quite surprised at how much we actually removed, nice pile of firewood



Well that's all for now and probably no more til after new year.

I can't believe how quickly you started on prepping for the garage lol. Looking forward to seeing it built though! Looks like you have a nice sized shed there too

Can vary depending on local authority,but generally....
Planning....

No outbuilding on land forward of a wall forming the principal elevation.
Outbuildings and garages to be single storey with maximum eaves height of 2.5 metres and maximum overall height of four metres with a dual pitched roof or three metres for any other roof.
Maximum height of 2.5 metres in the case of a building, enclosure or container within two metres of a boundary of the curtilage of the dwellinghouse.
No verandas, balconies or raised platforms.
No more than half the area of land around the "original house"* would be covered by additions or other buildings.

Building Control....

If you want to put up small detached buildings such as a garden shed or summerhouse in your garden, building regulations will not normally apply if the floor area of the building is less than 15 square metres and contains NO sleeping accommodation.

If the floor area of the building is between 15 square metres and 30 square metres, you will not normally be required to apply for building regulations approval providing that the building contains NO sleeping accommodation and is either at least one metre from any boundary or it is constructed of substantially non-combustible materials.
