Shed Building Monthly

Issue 53 - January 2018


I hope that you had a great New Year.

It is said that for a garden building to last it needs ‘a good hat and a good set of boots’. Two new articles on the site show methods of achieving this:

In the first article we look at epdm rubber used on a shed roof. This material has been around for 50+ years and is increasingly making an appearance on garden buildings. It is slightly more expensive than traditional shed roofing systems on a price/m2 basis. But it is much much more durable.

In the second article we look at forming a shed base that is easily level adjustable and doesn’t require much in the way of ground work.

I mentioned last month of some exciting news. One of my main focuses this year is on writing a Shed Building Manual for the publisher Haynes. Haynes are well known for the their innovative and step by step approach to manuals of all types.

I am especially pleased to be co-writing this book (my first) with Alex Johnson from Shedworking.(his fifth or so book!)

I am very keen to include new and innovative products within this book. So if you have used something that you have found really useful then let me know. Hopefully we can find a way of working it there.

Also I will be building a number of sheds for the book. If you live in the South East of England (Kent or Sussex) and have a shed project planned this year let me know. I may be able to help you. Or even build it for you! Drop me a line by replying to this email.

Anyway, that is it for this month. The days are already getting slightly longer and it will soon be Spring. ;-)



PS. Please forward this e-mail to your friends/family who may be interested in building a shed or even just great shed architecture!
