    I bought a new/old shipping container and starting fitting it out to take my 50+ year magazine collection. It was this, or recycling via the tip. Shelves along each wall and probably an island later too, I've got lots.

    I may ventilate it, not sure, but the outside is dark blue and its damn hot inside. Its also my 4th container for storage of my stuff here, and not been an issue in the others, maybe its a coastal thing?

    Yeah, good still, but..... I've maybe come off twice, so ma very conscious of it when in use Should have 5 wheel and be a bit bigger diameter.

    I'm also planning on a corrugated sheet roof on top of it to reduce the heat and catch a bit more water.

    Finished phase 1 of my magazine library shelving in our new container. Used up some of the old timber I kept just in case, bench saw is very handy, and the shelves are mostly left over 19 mm form ply from the foundation pour for 'our' NBN tower. They said it was going to the tip if I didn't take it off their hands, :hmmmmm how could I resist :thumb

    Had an old desk that dates back a real long time that has been tucked away in a corner in the missus' sewing room that has now likely found its final resting place too.

    Got room for island shelves if needed. Interestingly, my missus' OCD has kicked in and she's having a great time going through the piles of magazines and sorting them. She loves scrabble and jigsaws and reckons this is giving her the same satisfaction. Been married 37 years and counting and I didn't expect this level of enthusiasm :dunno
    Not that I'm complaining, I'm loving it, one less job for me :ricky

    Nice job BergDonk. Its amazing what you can do with what others throw away. You have a couple of years on me in the mariage dept. Is it to late to train my wife to be like yours?

    I still cant walk unassisted but i was getting ansi so I spent the day doing a two hour job fitting a diesel heater to the lounge room. Leanne has been bringing in the firewood and getting the heater going but she has got torn knee ligaments and twisted ankle from doing chores i should be doing so now she has to rest.

    These diesel heaters cost only $105. I thought at most it would take the chill off the air. So far with all doors open it has maintained 12* above ambient. Its been 22* in the house throughout the night. Ok, our house isnt huge but geez thats not bad going. Fuel consumption is 0.17L to 0.6L depending on setting. I paid $1.19 a litre in the North east yesty.

    The install is basic untill i can perform an install unassisted.

    Heres another job. The new rescue dog decided to have a chew on my ipad. He not only had he stuffed the digitizer (screen) but also the LCD underneath. $140 for parts.

    Your a man of many talents AUSSIEADV. Good to see you keeping busy. Leanne needs a holiday away from you when your back on your feet.

    I suspect its too late. In fact I'm not too sure about wife training at all, is it even possible on any level :loco


    Had this one in my main shed for working on the bikes, but its not that free wheeling as a couple of the wheels don't roll properly. It was a throw away from work many years ago when the back adjuster stopped. I retrieved it and cut the back off with an angle grinder. It'll serve here in the library for the time being. Get the impression I can be a bit of a bower bird? :augie

    I’ve got an eberspacher one in the moho, was $1800 (no I didn’t buy it, was already installed), and it’s damn near useless. It’s 2.5kw so you’d think it would be hot as inside, it’s ducted to the bathroom as well but even closing that vent it’s still shit. It sits under the bed at the head end, it initially had no return air and the large vent was the bathroom one, obviously installed by a skilled tradesman.

    This one the heat at 1 ft from the vent is almost too hot to bear!
