The Vision

Lets see how close i get when its finished to my thoughts right now.

there is an “alley” on the left ( topside) that has some pots and paver and NEEDS a french drain, so that needs a total rip up and leveling, i intend to create a growing area there for plants and cover it with corrigated transparent poly as it has a large tree above it so i need to get as much light in as possible and direct sun rarely hits the area.

i’ll do this without touching the fence so its independent and aslo the roof will be slopping so the leaves from teh tree , which it drops HEAPS, will be able to wash off when it rains.

the shed roof is mostly metal with just 2 transparent areas, so i’m going double the transparent as once again the shed is under the tree, i’ll do sections on the right and the left to get as much natural light into the shed but as it does get sun we need to think about heat in summer.

the shed has HUGE metal doors, they need to be removed and replaced with french doors and a new facade in total.

inside there is 1 window facing the back garden and thats where the work table will be so a nice view whilst working.

the concrete floor is of course after 30+ years stained with grease, paint etc so that will need to be cleaned and i think a little diamond grinding would be good as i intend to give it a protective coat, kinda a gloss concrete look.


the left inside wall is going to be a framed feature wall made on recycled pallet wood and distressed in a white wash.

the very back wall is currently think vertical paneling as is the right wall, still debating what to do but it seems its heading for solid white painted, this will make a present very dark shed into a very bright light area which will be great for flower design.

the inside roof we are currently go to leave alone as its a galvenised iron colour.

the roof cross metal tube beams are ugly so i think i’ll cover them with a white wood or maybe just paint them white.

the outside is currently green, so we are considering painting it white as well creating a barn yard look, but i think we’d need an accent colour to break it all up.
