    Ok so there's been a few posts of home improvements and such, like Crazy's Lurve Nest, Scott's paving and welly's going to have a fair few thing to whack with the new house so i think we need an ASN Shed. Somewhere we can show off our efforts of things we've done that's not our daily. Could also be a place to post up help requests or how to's. No doubt there's plenty of peep's on here in most trades to help a brother out. Anything goes really.

    Ill kick off, last month me and jimmy built an office in the corner of the unit, not the most exciting thing i know but they'll for now. i'v got some pics from when I pimped my bosses garage ill dig out and get them up at some point.<br>

    Ok so we started by knocking up the frames
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    then we boarded it on the floor for ease then screwed it in place with some frame fixings

    I Pulled in the 2.5 twin and earth power and Cat5e Data Cables While Jimmy started on the joist hangers
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Then boarded the other side

    Inside
    [​IMG]

    We then we used 4"/2" joists and joist hangers for the ceiling support and boarded that.

    Then we Taped & filled the joints with gypsum joint filler

    Bit of woodwork and a laminate floor

    Still to do

    need to paint and wrap the outside
    Install phone system
    Door, Glass, external woodwork

    As always when your trying to do something everything comes at once, so we'v just been too busy but will get around to it soon.... hopefully.

    Pics or it didn't happen!! Haha. That sounds like you did a good job there dude! I take it that's for the wrapping business? Must be going nicely if you need an office.

    I'm just gonna upload my latest pics as we've just finished the room ready for the carpet tomorrow. Back in a jiffy...

    Here they are. Wardrobe door handles still to fit but it was a tad late by the time we'd finished to drill the doors.

    Oh, and is gypsum joint filler basically plaster but for thicker stuff, bigger gaps etc? Like the bonding coat? Ive never heard of it before so thought I'd ask

    And now there's a specific thread for this stuff I can upload pics of all my **** I've done over the last year since we moved in. The garden was a big project. I'll try dig out a few pics. No doubt I'll bore you all :)

    In a way yeh. Its not our unit dude it belongs to a mate of mine who does auto electrics, phone kits, AV that sort of thing He also does bespoke stuff too like Onyx and Overfinch. He also does quite a bit on the wrapping side and we've been freelancing to him for a while now so when I mentioned about putting our own name out there, we talked and then moved to the unit next door to accommodate us all as it was wider. Still wrapping for him but bringing our own cars in as well. its good for us as it means no mahoosiv start up overheads. So as a thanks for helping us off the ground me and Jimmy threw up the office.

    He's a good mate so favours for favours and all that, plus he brings us some nice motor in to touch ;)

    Ok here's a bit of an odd one but really not something I normally make. This was a little project to make a new house (shed) for two of my pets. We had to keep it a little bit smaller than I wanted but the garden isn't big enought and the cost of the wood was killing me....

    IMG_0831[1].jpg
    This was the basic frame It's about 20feet long 10feet wide and 10feet high


    IMG_0839[1].jpg

    Looks a bit better painted and by the time the roof was on and the mesh on the front you can hardly see them :)

    I would love to get a Euraisan Black Vulture Next

    460px-Aegypius_monachus.jpg

    The Eurasian Black Vulture is believed to be the largest bird of prey in the world. This bird has a 98–120 cm (39–47 in) long with a 250–310 cm (107–122 in) wingspan and a weight of 7–14 kg (15.5-31 lbs), and is thus one of the world's heaviest flying birds. Not sure what the car will make of this one. It already has a bit of a hard time with the other 3 :) But I have already pick out a name for it.... Ethel :)
