Over the last few weeks I have cracked on with the last bit which is the decking and summer house.
A couple of tons of type 1 put down then I utilised the old patio slabs and laid them so I had a good solid base.
It’s not pretty and a bit mix and match but spot on for what I need it for, I also ran out of slabs due to giving some away so laid some concrete to fill in the gaps.



I was also faced with a failed slab of concrete that I had been putting off for years so built a retaining wall that I will backfill with concrete.



Frame all built I just need to put some noggins in now.

Had to give Waxstock a miss this year, fist time in 5 years ! Getting the garden finished is top of the list at the mo.
Treated both sides of the floor and roof with several coats of preservative, I have something else for the rest.



So finally got to put up the summer house today with much needed help from the good wife. There’s still bits to finish but the majority of it is done.

Roof felted, side shed door on, underside of the outside canopy/overhang on.
Nearly there with the decking a few more lengths for the fascia and down the sides to deck. Noggins put in as I did the decking so I could make sure they sat under a board and stayed hidden.
As the weather has been crap I have also started painting the inside.

Looking great Danjc!

The shed with it's own decking is a great addition.

Some more progress on the summer house. All painted/treated, fascia boards on, flooring down and now it has power.
Decking nearly there but requires a few more coats of oil but having a sufficient dry spell is just not happening as you have all probably noticed ! The boards for the side are all cut and ready to go down but I have some work to do either side so will wait till I have done that so I don’t risk trashing the boards.
After the election had done his thing I fitted some LED strip Lights inside some aluminium extrusion that point at 45 degrees to the ceiling that works really well and controlled via a remote or WiFi and an app on my phone.

There are various companies on the net that do this model but I went straight to the manufacturer and got it slightly cheaper. It is modular so you can have the side shed either on the left or right.
