Sorry it's a bit later than I promised Damien, I had photo upload issues, the page that usually came up to load them had disappeared but all's ok now.

These are the pallets I am using, they are 24ft long by about 7ft 6ins. wide. The long timbers are 3&3/4 x 2&3/4 but have a joint at about 20ish ft., some good timber. We get 20 of these on the delivery lorry at a cost of £250 making them the bargain price of £12.50p each Very Happy


The base and roof trusses.


here I am checking the height and location of the roof trusses. The frame leaning up is for the end (left hand side of the photo).


I am a bit further on now but being hampered by the weather, I'll get some more shots soon 2thumbsup

A bit more progress, but still being hampered by the weather, nasty wet cold weather.



Also we have been doing some ground work with a digger over Christmas, drainage trench for a pipe to divert the water into the pond and a hard standing is going to be laid with stone when the digger comes back in a month or so.


Some of the UPVC windows that I got from Freecycle , for free as the title suggests 2thumbsup

You'll soon be hampered by frozen ground Laughing Laughing It looks as though winter has finally arrived here in Essex. We have escaped most of the rain and gales, but will catch all the frost I'm sure.
