Well a Tesla solar battery has been ordered and should be installed within the next 6 months. Cost just under $11k installed so not too bad I suppose. It'll more than pay for itself at this point in time which wasn't the case a year or two ago. I'll put up some numbers next year when it's all said and done.

Lesson learnt. 10x6m shed is not diy friendly.
Got it 90% done, but fck it was hard work.
Pay someone to do it.

If my roof skillioned the other way, it may not of been so bad as the middle beam was 10m long and 2 of us couldn't lift it. Plus the roller door was 170kg. Scissor lift is a must. 2409029ac9c0dc884b13c95b994641a4.jpg

Good effort to get it done mate. I swapped a wall unit aircon out a while back and the farker was 70kg. I literally used my engine crane to chuck it in 😅

not that I built it, but nearly finished cleaning it

shed is 24x11 meters

we got our farm cheap because old mate had hoarded 19 years of crap including old building materials when he built the farm house and sheds in 2006

we bought in August 2022 and we cleaned up the house first so we could rent it, then we started on this shed which is about 150 meters from the house

been a slow process cos farm is nearly 2 hours drive from Clifton Beach, and  are up there once a fortnight

Whats the average cost for getting a slab poured for a shed?

 

The house design we are likely going for will give me room at the back for a workshop. Nothing big enough for a car, but plenty big enough for electronics stuff, hoping to finally have a place to work on car lighting. Looking at potentially a 3.5x4m shed. I don't want to contact any local places until our design has been finalised so I know what size shed I can order. 

 

Other option is to play around with the house design to extend the garage and have a workshop in the garage - all depends on which option is cheaper 😋
