A Kit of Parts

Shed2 The base of the shed has been bolted to the concrete and the whole edge sealed with silicone – Bizibilder hopes it will be watertight!
The corner bolts in close up. Shed3
Shed4 “Stretching the saw”.  This is a 75mm square fence post and is too big for Bizibilders saw!  The saw doesn’t know this so Bizibilder has got away with cutting through this piece in two “goes”!

IF you are contemplating a job such as this then one of these saws is almost ESSENTIAL – Bizibilder prides himself in being proficient with a hand saw, but even he has to admit that the power version cuts rather more “straight and true” than he can.  Money very well spent.
These corner posts needed a “chunk” cutting out in order to fit over the corners of the base.

The rest of the day has been spent cutting out a “kit of parts” ready for assembly.  Bizibilder tends to make things like this “one bit at a time” but has realised that with his part of the structure having to match exactly to the purchased shed he has decided to cut all the parts needed “to size” and then assemble the whole thing in one go!  The metal shed is simply too flimsy to “part assemble” and leave for any length of time.
