One very large shed going up.
Thanks to Dazza for the idea and Mick (Martica) for the expertise and most of the work.

Someone said "this is an exercise in problem solving"..... the soil here is decomposed rock so I had to dig some holes.

Looking good Greg, not sure if the shelter is big enough though.

BTW will you be trimming those strongback posts?

Cheers John

Having to move halfway through a build can really turn things upside-down!

The new shed looks better though.
