First day of build today.
Started off by picking up 10 -13ft scaffold boards for around the base, got them off of Ebay for £80, they are used but in very good condition.
Also 5- 5mtr lengths of 3 by 2 for the end frames, they might seem excessive for framing but have decided to put sliding patio doors on one end, and a pvc door and window at the other.
Have got the door and window off a mate who has a double glazing factory, they were ones he had taken out so got them for free.
Just missed out on 9ft bt 6'6 sliding upvc doors on Ebay, they went for £27, i had left a bid of £26 (Bugger)
First problem we hit is that the ground slopes away a lot more than we thought over the total length, if we put a level from front to back we are about 2ft up in the air at the rear, levelling the ground is not an option, too much work and not enough time!
Time for a cup of tea and a head scratch......
Right... Have decided to make up the frame with the scaffold boards, get them square on the corners, level across the width and run with the slope of the land.
Might be being a bit too over complicated , after all it's only an allotment......
As long as we drive the scaffold poles in square i don't think it's going to look amiss (famous last words)
Not much progress today, too much head scratching.......
Hopfully move it on a pace tomorrow.
