You'll fill it up with valuable 'stuff' within a month. Better add a couple metres to it. You can thank us later.

Hello Ian
Congratulations on the shed. At a guess I reckon the people doing the slab will do a great job. I cannot remember the last time I saw braces that are on the corners of the form-work to keep everything square and tight.
So what size is she going to be?

Cheers Scott

Hi John, The big hold up is the concrete pump, next available date is next Tuesday and we have rain forecast. There is only one concrete pump on the northwest coast based in Burnie, there is another one in Launceston but too far away.

Hi Scotty, The shed will be 9m x 7m

Cheers
Ian

Looks like a real nice pour on the slab too.

Hi Scott

Hope to have it up in the next few days, then I will seal the the concrete as soon as it is dry. Got a club rally this weekend, so will struggle getting a few things together for that. My big covered trailer is packed full of work benches, cupboards, tool boxes and stuff, so can't use that. All my other stuff is stacked in a mates shed and I rearly can't be bothered digging through it all. And to top it of the weekend is going to be wet, wet, wet.

Cheers

Ian

Hi,
It all got started at 7.30am today, one hard working man. He did not stop until he ran out off daylight. It was too dark to take the last picture of the day so will take it first thing in the morning.

Cheers

Ian

Hi Cobbabog

It was real pleasure to watch him methodicly going about his work, he had his procedures down pat, no wasted time or movement.

Cheers

Ian
