    The sentry of my man castle:

    I want that garden junk on the left out of my man castle in the worst way:

    When we moved in, I saved time and covered the old work bench with new material instead of building a new one. It's real sturdy:

    It's hard to put any time in the man castle in the summer when you have this view from the bench:

    I drywalled the walls but opted to keep the ceiling open since the detached garage was built in the 50s and the patterns and exposed beams were really cool looking. Of course, I really love admiring my exposed ceiling in the middle of a SoCal August afternoon, not:

    This loft was in place when we moved in. I fought temptation to tear it out. I'm glad I didn't, it makes for awesome storage:

    My stable wants to know when they are going to get a Honda adventure bike for a big sister:

    Normally my van is parked in escape position with the ass end lined up with the stable. It's summer in SoCal so the van is on vacation:

    It ain't much, but it's enough!

    It one of its rare tidy moments, although there's an awful lot of crap on the shelving out-of-frame. I was going to go take a panoramic shot but it's all full of sawdust now, I've been making fences to stop the little one from falling off the balcony ...

    Let the fun begin:D The slabs just been laid. The shed measures 15 m x 7.5 m. I've enclosed one end to use as a nursery as I'm a wildlife carer and rehab crook Kangaroo's, Emu's etc.
    My old shed was a 40 foot sea cont but its too narrow to work in, well that's my excuse for having 3 bikes in boxes waiting for rebuilds :wink:
    The tracktor is a Fordson Major around 1960 era and the Jags a XJ12L with a Chev 350 power plant. Its taken a few years to cash up and buy a decent shed and finally its happening:clap There's certainly some pride in some of these sheds in this thred.
    At least the missus will know where to find me in future:hide

    Cheers

    Hows this for spoilt! Not only dose the wildlife get a big 3 m x 7.5 m section of me shed, they also get a swinging lounge to ponder life on before release:D

    Holy crap!! Tell us, please, what caused the fire? This is one of my major fears - the garage burning down. My whole life (almost) is in mine!!

    Man, that's sucks. I got lucky when our builder was forced to put fire sprinklers in all the homes due to the fire dept. being over 5 miles away. By the time the tract was finished, we had an FD about a block away. Only drawback of sprinklers is that you gotta be a little careful not to take one of the heads out when moving stuff around....
