Shed Services

Time to start thinking about the required services needed in the shed.

Plumbing: not so much a service, but getting water away from the shed and into the appropriate drain is important. I have a plumber coming around tomorrow to work out just what needs to be done in this instance. We also need to identify where the pipe runs are on the property, so when the trenches for electricity is dug, the trencher doesn’t cause more work than necessary!

As far as water service to the shed, (which is related to the drains), I am planning on having a small tank collecting water and supplying it via a mains pressure pump I already have to a basin in the back of the shed. Way too useful not to have a water supply for things such as the Tormek sharpener, and washing items etc. That I suspect is a little way off- depends how much a small tank is.

Electrical: had an electrician around today to see the site, and to start ball-parking the cost of wiring up the shed. Looking at about 60A of power, with a few circuits- one for lighting, and the rest for 10A & 15A supply. I have the lighting grid done, so now I just have to design the electrical layout over the weekend. If all goes to plan, we may do it the week after next.

Air: compressed air is a really useful asset for a shed, so I am working with Professional Woodworkers Supplies to choose a kit and add-ons to create a really useful compressed air layout. This includes a couple of outlets above the workbench and the Torque Workcentre- one for vac clamo, one for everything else (aka, blowing dust away)

Each of these services will be detailed a lot further as I work on their final design and layout.

Day 5 – Endgame

Not sure if the long journey is over, or just beginning, but in either case, today is the day the shed is completed!

The final main work that needs to be done is the roof over the main body of the shed. After that, it is just some details- final flashings, roof cap, down pipes and bits n pieces.

Time to start the GoPro time lapse for one final shed-build shoot!
