If you have got the space and it suits where you are, ie rural block. Go for one of the industrial sheds from this lot http://www.shedsonline.com.au/. If I had the land, and it could be close to me I would go this way.



44c's went to another builder, but somewhere he posted the details of the one he used.

Great choice of boat! If I was building again, that's what I'd build.



I used a "Habitat" shed from VP structures.

Found it to be excellent, and was able to sell it afterwards.

Hi

Got a quote from Habitat...over$10,000. Thought it a bit steep. Designing my own and will build it if I can't find anything a a decent price second hand.

I find it hard to justify $10k when I know the stuff it could put on my boat...

I have downloaded the plans from PureMajek and will develop one of these to fit the boat if nothgn comes up at around $2000 or $2500.

Sounds similar to the internal conversations I have with myself, ie lowest possible cost of build site. Being on a inner suburban block build does not fit.

1. Rent a shed and burn maybe 50K on rent.

2. Buy a shed on land already, maybe get some capital gain, but need capital to do this and puts build back.

3. Buy land and add shed. In my case I was thinking of a permanent shed that would add to resale.



Option 1 is in front as the location in this thread would give me the option to get a pro to assist for a week a month or something.

I am building in a rented shed at Allcraft marine. I built as many parts as I could at home first, rudders daggers, forebeam etc. These are time consuming but take litte space to build. I plan to take four years in the shed that i rent. There is a cost, however at Allcraft marine they are set up to take the finnishd boat from shed to water so no truckes transport part needed which is a saving. Also there is the option to pay and get some of the stuff done if needed.



Allcraft are having an additoinal shed built at the end of the month, which could take 2 or 3 new boats
