Tin Shed

Tin Shed 11 Dec 2014

Suburban houses and tin sheds are often the objects of ridicule.

David Byrne

 

In the RUDE household there is definitely no instant gratification happening.

We have a carport but we do not have the luxury of a garage workshop.

We can prove this, by RUDE Boy’s years of searching for a tin shed at the right price.  He has been scouting Ebay for what seems like a lifetime.  He has been putting watches on all these sheds.  But when the auctions are over, he throws up his arms at the prices secondhand sheds are fetching and/or the locations of them.

We knew something would come our way eventually.  We just had to be patient.  And the universe eventually provided a fire damaged shed at the right price = zilch!!

RUDE Boy had to go and collect the shed immediately,and he moved like lightning to oblige.  The shed is approximately 3m x 2.4 m with a double door at the front.  There is no window.  He had to dismantle it and load it on the trailer.  No big deal, just a couple of hours work.

We are very grateful that the previous owners thought to offer it up, and did not resort to throwing it in the skip with the other fire damaged materials and items.

With a RUDE spit and polish this shed will serve us well as a workshop.  We look forward to posting our ongoing shed story, as it gets a RUDE makeover.

Beat The Man and ‘shed’ any ridicule about rescuing fire damaged and free tin structures from the dumpster.

Read about the history of sheds on Wikipedia, and note that Australians, and New Zealanders too, have a love affair with these structures.

    • Restyle4Life you can check out the erected shed on our Facebook page at Rude Record. There are a couple of posts and a short video. It is yet to be painted. This job will be attended to after Christmas if RUDE Boy feels up to the task and it is not too hot.

      It was a great score as these older colourbond sheds if new are not cheap. Maybe $500 at a guess. This shed, including the paint, cost us $40 and some time and effort.
