So the new Sewing shed arrived and promptly blotted out the sun in all it’s orange glory!
Just to get to this stage has been hard work and Mr King has been bloody wonderful in helping me get to this stage. He spent hours with a pickaxe clearing the foundations. Next he taught himself to do bricks and mortar. Then he pushed wheelbarrow after wheelbarrow of hardcore round to fill it in. Then he laid some ruddy heavy slabs.
The shed itself was constructed by a local company who did a great job. It just took me by surprise just how big it is.
Ive also had an electrician come round last week and fit a light and 2 double power sockets.
Now we’re in the process of insulating it and cladding it. Yet another Mr King job!
Hopefully in a couple of weeks I’ll start the job of fitting it out with a workbench, cutting table, storage, book shelves etc. It’s bloody exciting getting my own space. I suppose it’s been over 10 years since I had my own space – pre Mr King! My pinterest board may be a little ambitious as to what it will look like inside though!
Here’s a pic of my helper painting over the ugly orange wood.
