    I've got exactly the same trolley Jack. :)

    Springs on the trampoline look a bit rusty. :(:(

    shed base looks good though. :)

    Phil - i bought that from Brown Brothers (they used to sell automotive paints and body panels but think they have ceased trading now) years ago and still going strong :) Yeah rusty so need to keep an eye on those.

    Concrete all in now

    Is that a shed base or a missile launching platform? :eek::eek::eek:

    That's probably my fault :oops:

    Nice neat job with evenly spaced fixings, will you be putting in steps?

    Thanks for all the posts chaps. 2 of the posts were knackered and the mixer has to go back tomorrow so (rightly or wrongly!) i decided to infill and will make those 2 in the picture up with courses of bricks which will have the benefit of supporting both spans.

    Jit - i am going to put some steps in (suggestions welcome ;))
    Longboat - 25mm exterior ply which i was going to SBR the underside prior to screwing down
    Chips - original plan was a shed, but changed to rocket launcher now mate :p:D

    The rear noggins are right of the front on 2 and left on the other.

    Still a very substantial base though, lets hope the shed as good.☺

    You could use 600x300mm concrete slabs as the steps, built on brickwork or concrete formed base.

    Or maybe 900mm wide? may be better for extra width.

    I did it this way as they were a tighter, squarer fit. One thing that i find hard working with timber is the way it can bananarise overnight!

    Thanks, i think i will go for 900mm possibly and double doors
  20. Fats is turning shed-building into an art-form :D

    Man, I can't believe you are going to hide all that lovely work up by putting a shed on it...

    The 'missing' posts along the two sides - are you going to add supports there instead, 'cos these side bearers look like they are currently only being supported by 3 bolts into their ends?
