Man Cave – She Shed – Garden Office

Building the Man Cave.

Update – This has now turned into a She Shed as my wife has acquired this and moved in.

This is a video record of my Garden office / Shed project.

I am not qualified or do this for a job, I just enjoy making things and this seemed like a good challenge.

I started it in March 2015 and finally completed it 9 months later in December 2015. I build this in my spare time.

I managed to get a great deal of the materials second hand or recycled.

Other items I had to buy new, but shopped around on line for the best price.

The timber base was from A1 Lofts who did a great job of our loft conversion a couple of years ago. I emailed them and they emailed out to all their contractors to see if they had any spare timber. I met with Dan from A1 lofts in Harlow and filled up a van load of timber. http://www.a1pms.co.uk/

The 4 x 2s were from a recycling timber yard in Peckham.

The other items such as the windows and doors and the front maple cladding were second hand from ebay. I had to travel to collect items from all over Surrey, Kent, Hampshire and Buckinghamshire.

Other items I had to buy new, but shopped around on line for the best price.

I did all the work myself apart from the final fix and certification of the electrics. The electrician was Billy Keppel from Keps Electrical.

I have written and recorded and played the instruments to the music on this video. The track is here https://soundcloud.com/angus-mcgregor

  1. Job well done. Don’t you just hate when negative people leaves a comment. Such a hater. 😞Keep up the great work. Pay no attention to the haters.

  2. Looks good but your supposed to stagger your subfloor. I can tell this isn't a American contractor. There are building codes in the usa we have to go by. If I build this in my backyard the city would fine me and make me take it down..all In all it looks really good!
