The Ideal Shed...hopefully

Unread post by 850norton » Sun Nov 22, 2009 6:05 pm

Seeing how SFB has made mention she wants a new shed and McNutto has made a few suggestions (see thread somewhere else ;) ), now' s the chance for everbody to make suggestions on what their ideal shed/refuge should be like:

It should have, besides the obvious roof, walls, floor and door:

-Some source of power
-Security from thieving pikies
-Workbench
-Tools storage
-Tools and associated equipment such as a vise, etc
-A bench to have the pride and joy on so old bones and joints don't suffer
-Some sort of insultation from the various tempertatures
-A fridge to keep bearings, drinks, food or whatever cold
-And tunes to listen to

Feel free to add to this as desired :D
You sick little monkey!!!! Holy crap!!!!

Kettle
Comfy seat for pondering
HUGE tool chest with hundreds of drawers and compartments
Photocopied manuals in plastic wallets so they wipe clean
Hand wash basin
Shelves with jam jars screwed underneath

Enormous "parts washer", large enough to wheel a bike onto to give it a jolly good gunking prior to any major work etc.
Blasting chamber, large enough to take bike frames and Land Rover body panels.
Spray booth, again, large enough to take the above mentioned parts.
A seperate shed for all the crap the other family members seem to think belong in your shed.
Bunk bed/hammock, for when you have said or done something which was taken totally out of context, or was just simply twisted into meaning the complete opposite of what it was when it first entered your head..................

Emergency escape hatch, so you can pop orft to the real BEER pub without having to invite "her whom you could really do without these days, to be quite honest" along, after all, why spoil a decent pint by subjecting it to such acid remarks and evil glares?

Tea and Biscuits ?
No thanks.

I'd like a BEER fridge, a wood burning stove with a small hob and an oven so that I can heat soup and PIES and a toasted sandwich maker.

Interwebs access so that I can seek instant advice.

Surprised no-one has mentioned some sort of hydraulic bike lift, and a trolley for transferring engines from the bike to the workbench.
