Well, my dad and brother came down on Wednesday of last week and started work on my shed. Well, that’s what it started out as. Dad being dad, decided that the van needed an awning and also a “proper” toilet. They worked so hard but still another trip down will be needed to put on the finishing touches.
I got here after they had been working for 2 days. They had already put up shed Frame and were in the middle of setting posts for awning.
Next, the roofs went up and doors on the shed.
My contribution to it all was making sure they were fed and cleaning up camp. I also finally set up an ibc which I levelled and filled bricks with concrete so that I can run gravity fed hoses to my gardens instead of bucketing water. My dad is a perfectionist so I spent ages making sure it was level. He was impressed :)
He built all of this out of recycled materials and even made the braces himself. As a man of almost 70, he was still climbing up and down ladders and shovelling stuff around the place. Can’t wait till it’s complete
