Not content with building one shed on the allotment this year, I’ve just finished another. The old shed that was on the plot when we took it over was, though originally well-built, falling apart and leaking badly. I patched it over the first winter, but now we decided it had to go. Apart from being unsightly, and blocking the late afternoon sun from the patio in front of the new shed, it was just clearly beyond repair.
So over the last couple of months, I’ve been adapting a used 4 foot by 4 foot shed that we were given in return for a small contribution to allotment committee funds. I extended it to make a 7 foot by 4 foot shed – a little on the small side, but it should do. That shed is ready now, further up the plot, so this Saturday Joe and I set about the old one’s destruction. The day was sunny and dry, so we decided to burn the old timbers while the wood was dry.
