If I never see a self-tapping screw again it will be too soon.

After two FULL DAYS we still haven't finished the new shed and we are all absolutely exhausted. Even small dog has abandoned us and taken to her basket, pleading sore paws or something equally implausible.

We had help in the form of a strapping young man all day Saturday but even then the build was painfully slow. The parts list for the new shed ran to 74 separate pieces, not to mention hundreds of the aforementioned self-tapping screws, nuts and bolts etc etc etc.

However, here for your delectation and delight is a series of before, during and 'up till now' photos.

And now I am going to finish my glass of chilled sparkling wine and wend my way to bed, footsore and weary in advance of a final assault on the last bits and pieces tomorrow. The shed needs to be screwed down firmly onto the base and sealed along the bottom edges with silicon goo.

Then at last we can load all the stuff currently languishing on the patio into the new shed, and get back to what passes for normal.......................
