Weekly Update – Boat Shed

October 2nd – 8th

With some time off and a break in the weather, I was able to spend some time on constructing the boat shed.

Firstly I had purchased some 220L plastic drums – 8No – which I intend to fill with water and use as weights to help secure the shed to the ground (as this is only a temporary structure). – I will show how this is to be done later.

I built a temporary platform to give me access to the last 2 trusses. I built the trusses and installed these all in one morning then continued framing out the floor ready for plywood.

The front curve frame was next – framed this up to give me enough space to be able to work around with sufficient room, dismantled the truss template and re-used these materials.

Started adding the strip bracing until I ran out of materials – have ordered some more so will complete the bracing this week.

  3. Install plywood flooring
