Yes, I’m being Fair Dinkum – the shed has a green light!

After the setback yesterday, this evening is a significant contrast.

The shed has a green light, and manufacturing will begin as early as tomorrow, with an estimated 3-6 week delivery time (this will be refined in the next few days I expect).

I have spoken at some length with a council building surveyor, and he sounded confident about getting the building permit through without an issue.  As soon as I get the engineering drawings and calculations to support the permit, it will be submitted directly to the council.  It will cost me more than originally planned ($700), but the proof is in the permit at the end of the process. Update – been talking with one of the long-time readers, who is very knowledgeable about such matters, who is adamant that I should find another PBS.  So the search is on (again).

I have spoken with my concreter again tonight, and they are ready to go as soon as the permit comes through (presumably with the same fortnight lead time).

The timetable now gets revised again, with the new information included.  And that is good news too.

This still assumes everything goes according to plan, and that NEVER happens!

So onto the news of the day.

The Shed.

The shed is Australian made, from Australian steel.

It has Shed Safe certification.

It is custom designed.

And has a classic Aussie name.

The next Stu’s Shed is (drumroll please) . . . . . .
