Building a temp boat shed - ideas
« on: January 02, 2015, 03:48:22 AM »
Here's how I built mine.

1 3/4" ele conduit, 14' lengths, 2 1/2 lengths per 'rib' at 6 to 7' spacings.
Rondo 28mm furring channels (used in office fit-outs)
And steel stud - various sizes - what I had around. Drywall screwed to the ele conduit.
Bottom 'plate' has holes drilled for the conduit to be screwed once in the hole.
A 9M X 6M tarp stretched over this worked suburb!
The back structure is 2" poly panels (fridge panels) of a site some where....
Lights out of a rubbish skip I went past on a commercial building site. Think the ladder came from the same bin.....
Not waving....... Drowning!

Tarp on
Woops, wrong pic, this was the first temp shed, I used 1 1/4"  ele conduit - didn't like the extra height when it came to build the higher shed, and the wind blew it around too much.

Yuk yuk... I once saw a temporary shelter on top of my neighbor's house, upside down.  Prior to that, it was in another neighbor's back yard a few houses up the street...
