Then after dinner I went up the allotment and finally managed to get the shed on the bee plot completed, this has been a work in progress over the last couple of weeks just spending an hour here and there on it.
Slats put on the roof to further strengthen and support the felt, rafters put up inside for extra roof support, a good coat of creocote to preserve the wood and the windows sealed to hold the glass firmly in place.
|The shed is still a work in progress here.|
As you can see from the photo above I have also laid some slabs at the front to have a solid surface to walk out onto. They aren't totally level but it adds to the ambience of the plot...at least that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!!
So you may wonder what all this has to do with decisions...well, as well as everything listed above I also got guttering put up both side of the shed, I'm not sure if you can tell from the photo but this shed is over 10ft long and at present I have one water butt set up at the back...but of course I have guttering on both side so should I get another water butt?? This is how it's set up at the minute.
|This water butt is going to fill up pretty fast!!|
That really isn't the decision I need help with though, originally I was just going to have one but when I think about it now having another water butt is a no brainer as I will be able to collect a lot of water from this shed and will fill two in no time at all....the decision I need help with is should I buy another one or should I take one from my much smaller shed on my other plot??
This does however have water in that has been collected already. Should I just get another?? I don't think you can ever collect too much water!!
So what do you think?? I am probably going more with get another but would love other peoples opinions too!!
Oh...here is a photo of the shed finished...looks a little different to when we first put it up here
|The finished shed in all it's glory!!|
And here is the now lovely tidy interior...
|Tidy, well organised shed.|
And just to finish off here is another feature that was added to the bee plot a while ago,
|wind chime frame.|
This wind chime frame is centrally placed just behind the pond. It makes lovely melodical sounds on a breezy day!!.
