Hi All

After reading other thread here decided to start my own. Always wanted shed in corner of garden and was thinking of wooden one, but mates a brickie and i'm a sparkie so thought stuff it may as well be brick and make it largish. Measures 4.5mx4.5m, with a cut across the corner.

Looks like it is now turning into a summerhouse/shed...Anyway pics below.

Here is the start, on a slope so had to move a builders skip full of earth (also got off mate cheap and on my driveway)

looks a nice job m8, {nice shape} "are the bricks for the front face ??"

it appears from your pics that the concrete slab membrane will be showing on the exterior of the shed {what purpose will this shed be used for m8} and what will you be doing on the interior {walls and floor} ????????
