I’ve been doing some research into the various ways of constructing the shack and have found a great technical drawings pdf which shows a load of construction details – very useful in getting the order of materials right.
Page 12 has the detail for the timber cladding option on timber frame, which right now seems to be the approach we’ll go for. This is intended to be a fully functioning part of the house, so it has to be fully insulated, powered, water-tight etc.
Here are some images of what we’ve let ourselves in for – our existing shed. This is going to make a great ‘before and after’ post at the point it’s all finished : )
At the moment, much of the stuff in there can either be used to construct the new shack or stored in a much smaller metal unit to the side of the house (things like gardening tools).
