It looks like you have done really well Scotty!?
These personal imports from North of the equator appear to be a scrappers delight!?
The only drawback i can see presenting itself is how to get rid of that "al-ooo-minnum",...............I haven't heard of anybody buying that stuff down here............
.........now if it was aluminium..!..

Hello Paul
It's a Viscount so I think it was made here. They're quite popular it seems.
I don't think the aluminium will be of much use. The outside is bonded to the polystyrene and it's stuck good. About the only way to separate the two is by fire. And is it really worth it for the few kgs of aluminium seeing we're on total fire bans.
Oh, forgot. There's even a kitchen sink in there. Bonus.

Cheers Scott

The insulated walls can be adapted to the existing shed walls for added insulation and that 'bonus' kitchen sink can be used for what I did, install it in the shed and use it to wash hands and parts of course. Drainage is via the earthen filtration system going to ground. It works a treat.
If not it may even be like that imported ally and burn high rises to the ground if not careful.

Talking Re: We Bought Another Wobblebox

Hi Scotty and all others,
Haven't been on for awhile and found this, it has been the best laugh I have had for a long while ì.
Scotty better make sure you have licence on it as WIN network might want to make a lifestyle/reality show where family members are sent off on a trip around Australia with a wobblebox and watch other mind numbing reality shows and call it The Wobblebox show or the Nine network might get Scott Cam to host a renovation show where 3 or 4 teams of 2 renovate an old rear door wobblebox, of cause the show would be called The Wobblebox Block.
Cheers for the laugh
Dobbo
