Its SHED TIME!!!

Crikey.  Have you ever shifted 16tonnes of stone by hand in two days?  Well for our sins, that's what the Muckle Flugga Man and I did this weekend.  I have to confess, he shifted slightly more than I, as my duties involved catching sheep with Mrs BC on Saturday morning.  After collecting a couple of trailer loads of stone last weekend, I thought one big load dumped in a pile on the shed site would be easier/quicker/less hassle than trekking back and forth to the quarry every weekend.  With the benefit of hindsight, I'm not sure if my old bones and achy bits would agree!  The pictures will surely tell a better tale than I can at the moment, 'cos I've only gone and contracted Man Flu for the second time this year.  Enjoy.  And think yourself lucky you didn't pop in for a cuppa today.....









Just as the light was going we finished the stone spreading and had a look at the pile of shed panels we'd collected a couple of weeks ago.  We had to load them back on to the trailer in order to get the floor sections.  
 And then, when we dragged the 4 floor sections over to the shed site, we could finally work out how they would all go together.  But oh dear, it had got far too dark to carry on, so we packed up and went indoors for slices of home made cake that Mrs BC had been slaving over.  Yum.  It's helped my Man Flu no end.

So next weekend, with a bit of luck and good weather, we should just be able to get the shed up.  It's 8ft wide and 20ft long, ideal for storing bikes and projects, which will free up space in the 'workshop' for working on bikes.....

'16 tons,and what do ya get?...another day older, and deeper in debt.' Sorry couldn't resist.
More sheds, I love it, How's that bigger one doing? The one with the pit?

Ah...yes...well...that ones still a big hole in the ground at the moment. Just dont seem to get the time with the weather or the weather with the time. At least the wooden one can be put up quite quickly and enable bike building to take place over winter, for a busy old summer in 2013. Nice song by the way, but you can add man flu and a bad back to the 'what do ya get' line!

It's a brilliant song!

Looks like a busy old winter too with all those projects waiting for your attention.
Get well soon ;-)
