A good ol’ fashion American Barn raising

For the first time I’m starting to give real consideration to the shed build.  Still a fair few weeks away (given construction has not started!), but it is a reasonable expectation that the number of weeks can be counted on my fingers (whew!).

There are (as I see it) 3 options.

1. Pay for the shed to be erected.  Cost – about $3200 (ouch)

2. Do it myself. Time – A very long time!

3. Do a barn raising, and my thought is to pay for a site manager who is experienced in constructing these sheds to direct whatever size group that is available.

So here is the thought – I was wanting to see if there is anyone willing to participate?  I’m only looking for non-binding expressions of interest at this stage, just to see if the concept has any legs at all.

It would be a weekend (so either a Saturday, or Sunday, or both), and some time around mid-November.  For the early starters, bacon & eggs on the BBQ.  Lunch would be potentially Subway.  To finish the day, BBQ and beers/wine (for those interested).

So – if that was the rough timing, and what’s on offer, would anyone be interested in helping Stu’s Shed get established in its new location? (Remember, this is expressions of interest only!)

Probably should have mentioned – South East Melbourne!
