      not really. Anything but science - he lacks the understanding of physics and engineering its not structurally sound/built to code. Its built in a superficial way and can collapse.

      Now you decided that what you really need is a underground bunker and to have the misses pleased you take her on holiday while they make the bunker. When you come back you hhave your shed and your misses never finds out that you have a mancave underneath your shed.

    An important point about building a shed in a country with as much rain as England (where I live). Make provision for a gutter along the sides as otherwise the walls will rot quickly at the bottom where all the water runs off the roof. The polythene backing to the feather edge boards will speed up that process of rotting as the boards will not dry out readily. If you use polythene then you should nail the feather edge to vertical battens to create an air gap. This cost very little extra.

      @Phil Butcher Not to mention that he used 2×3 for the roof...... that's under engineered for a shingle roof, let alone slate....

    • Phil Butcher
      Phil Butcher 9 months ago +6

      There are so many issues with the way he did this, I think it best to just advise people to research elsewhere. They literally threw money away and wasted time (lead tucked underneath the slate? Plastic sheet against wood? No air gap? The whole weight of a slate and lead roof on a single timber over a wide door cavity? Huge gaps around expensive insulaton?). This is considered entertainment for some people, but please don't think it is good building advice - I'd hate to see people with less resources waste them.

    You may still have come under budget if you had of used OSB board instead of premium grade marine ply.
    The DPM used should have been a breathable membrane, as you did not batten it out to create a 15 to 25mm void the DPM will attract moisture and eventually rot your timbers but you should still get 10 to 15 years out of it.
    Also if you had of... Nah I'm just nit-picking :) Great video for any DIYer wanting to try his hand at building a shed.

  • AlabamaTree
    AlabamaTree 2 years ago +1

    Great looking shed and great video. I’m planning something similar. What did you do for the base ? Did you lay a concrete slab to work on or is that just the top of the bunker? If it’s a concrete slab how thick did you lay it? Cheers ,

    Must be nice to know you could always fall back to doing DIY videos and take over the industry (no offense intended I know you can and are doing much more). Seriously, this is one of the best shed building videos I've ever seen. This is textbook content updated for a modern audience rather than the current offerings that resemble a TV show shoehorned into a digital platform, IMO. Really well done. Great use of the medium to your advantage which, I think, is the key reason your ceiling is so high. Thanks for providing such great content.

  • Steve Wright
    Steve Wright Year ago +2

    Great job, just one thing lets this down. I could be in there in under 10 seconds without a key for the padlock, you need at least one bolt through each section of the T hinges, and the same for the padbolt, saying that though, I'd throw the padbolt away and try and get a deadlock on there, the part where the padlock goes can easily be knocked off with a hammer, but just 2 screws are holding the keeper on, removing those will give anyone access, this is why so many garden shed gets broken into, owners don't realise how vulnerable their garden tackle is.

    What size timber do you use for the door trim (architrave) and frame?
    I like the centre post in the middle of the walls incidentally meaning you can use the much more available 1.8m lengths of featheredge rather than having to source longer stuff.

    I think slate will prove to be a mistake in the end. I have a slate roof on my house and it's horrible. It leaks, it drops black dust everywhere, it chips and cracks. It's pretty horrible.
    Might have been the best stuff around 200 years ago but there are much better alternatives now.
    Does look pretty damn smicko though.

    Colin, how is the lead strip on the ridge attached to the roof? Thank you for this video. I am going to do exactly this, except that the door will not be in a gable end because I want to have a work bench running the length of the shed. There will be two windows in the gable end so that light falls on the work bench. Other than that I will follow your design. Were the fence posts 3" or 4"? I have always thought that the usual felt roofs are not up to the job, so I will be using slate too. thanks

    • Julian Alcock
      Julian Alcock Year ago

      @BloopTube Thanks for the reply. The shed is built (thank heavens before all the materials rose in price), following the design in the video quite closely. I decided not to nail the ridge strip of lead down because I didn't want to puncture the roofing tiles underneath. It hasn't blown off yet! Because of the 12 degree slope on my roof, I used rubber tiles made from recycled black plastic bin bags. I also installed a small gauge gutters and downpipes leading to a soak away. I installed Rhinovent under the tiles and behind the feather edged strips. Thanks again for giving me the inspiration to do this

  • Galerak

    While this shed has obviously stood the test of time, I was a little concerned by the fact that the whole thing is only anchored to however many bricks the frame was screwed down to. Unless those fixing screws went through the brick and into the concrete (and they didn't really look long enough for that) then the whole shed's rigidity is based on the amount of mortar between the anchor bricks and the concrete base.
    I'll admit that the amount of weight in this build will probably hold it down through a tornado but come on, there's right ways to do things ;o)

    That shed will last a long time even in England with its wet climate compared to California where I live. Our sheds aren't even close to the quality that shed has especially its roof. I built one on the rainy side of the big Island of Hawaii, and used all marine studs, and plywood, but only used inexpensive corrugated metal roofing. That roofing material wood have made it look way better.

      You can buy cheap and nasty sheds in the UK too. Always a false economy though in my view. There's no substitute for proper construction. Always better to build it yourself, if nothing else for peace of mind that it is actually sturdy and all the wood has been treated properly.

    This was the inspiration for the large and very solid shed I built this summer. I used treated 4x2s for the frame and went for a polycarbonate roof so there's plenty of light inside. I then installed a large Lister generator which powers the adjoining garage and probably, in time, the house. The shed floor is 6" thick reinforced concrete to cope with the weight of the generator and insulation in the walls reduces the noise.

      I’m building a shed/workshop using polycarbonate roof as well only problem is condensation on underside however I’m still building & their gaps not finished yet I’m hoping condensation goes away after I finish, putting polystyrene insulation in walls if any one has any suggestions to this issue please advise, maybe time of year & plus side it’s not dripping!

  • RicktheRecorder
    RicktheRecorder 2 years ago

    Always amusing and inspiring but screwing slates to a flat surface without battens is asking for condensation and ice damage problems. No soakers at gable ends means rain will pour under slates there, the headlap for such a shallow pitch looked very questionable, and the lead ridge appeared to be unclipped so will blow off in high winds.

      There will also be a tunnel running from the house to the garage, to the shed, and underground bunker.

      Actually it's a bunker with an attached house, believe me, I was shocked when I found out first too

      I built a shed with these plans from Ryan [ Details Here?> *WoodBlueprints. Com* ] . The instructions were clear and easy to implement. Even a novice can be able to build fast using this plan. I'm happy I bought the plan. It also saved me much cost.

      To be honest if he would sell, he would have to sel it as an underground apocalyptic bunker with a house with 3 bedrooms,2 bathrooms,1 living room and a solid shed. Acording to UK reall estate laws lol. If you have a bunker attach too your house. You have too sell it as a bunker with a house. Someting left from WWII i think

    I’ve never been so interested watching a shed get built

    I watched this video years ago and was critical of how you built it.
    And watching it again I'm face palming again.
    Maybe things are just built different over there but jeez. You'd think as a plumber you've seen a lot of framing.

    Hi Colin what did you use across the ridge of the roof ? Was it lead flashing ? If so how did you fix down the flashing

    I honestly half expected you to build an actually solid shed, as in, entirely filled with material inside

    Nice. I do the same when I frame, pre-drill everything.

    The bottom wooden rule in the walls has probably rotted now.
    Normally you put a rubber strip underneath, alternatively, roofing paper between the wooden bars and in your case, the bricks.
    If you have them in pressure-impregnated wood, it will last even longer

      just put DPC membrane on the engineering bricks before you put down your wood and you'll be fine.

      Agreed, that's probably the only bit where the wood should have been tanalised.

    Was that membrane breathable or not, looks like normal membrane, if it’s normal membrane have you had any issues with rot or mould? Building one now and just wanted some advice. Quality build fella.Cheers

    Love your broadcasts, especially the ones with the bunker.
    And there were some great ideas in your shed.
    But do you not lack tar between your roof tiles on the shed?

    Just built my shed with the same methods. Solid shed. Only difference I used a true 75x50mm timber. So the feather edge sticks out slightly from the 100mm post. Think Colin must have used 75x50mm nominal?

    A SOLID shed, interesting project. I see how you could achieve the Single Responsibility, but how would you meet the requirements of Liskov Substitution? :)

    Does having this in wood avoid planning permission opposed to brick?
