Storage Sheds For New Build Projects

When I first started my new build project I quickly realised that I needed a lot more dry storage than I had originally accounted for.

I had a shipping container for security of tools etc but this did not have the space for materials that needed to be kept dry like plaster boards etc.


As I needed a workshop sized space for the ride on mower and other gardening tools i thought it would be a great time to get a wooden workshop for the materials that I can then use for the garden equipment I sourced a 20 foot long timber shed from sheds direct which was delivered and erected in a few days.

I went for the large barn doors so that I could put anything heavy straight onto the tractor trailer and back it straight in saving loads of time.

Installing Insulation Over The Exposed Oak

Roof Insulation

Roof Insulation

This week we have started started installing the Celotex insulation over the exposed Oak. This involves laying 12.5 mm foil backed plaster board directly on top of the Oak then a layer of 80 mm Celotex, roofing batten is then laid in the same direction as the Oak rafters and fixed in place with 150 mm decking bolts then 30 mm Celotex is laid in between the battens.

The roofers will then lay counter battens, breathable membrane and then the tiles!
