The in-laws were over at the weekend and made some very good progress in the demolition of the old, useless shed and removal of the concrete pads and patio slabs. The slabs which remain are 50mm thick so I'll be using them to make a path from the footpath off my property to my side gate.

As you can see, the garden is now a very useable size and shape (y)

The fiancé is pretty handy with a saw too... I actually thinks she's better than I am :D

All the electrics for inside the workshop are complete minus the 30A SWA supply cable which will be installed once the garden has been dug over and levelled in a few weeks. Only other electrics left to complete are for the external down lights under the front canopy.

It's bloody hard work when you're leg is butchered (whew)

Another great weekend... 19 courses in 2 days.

Downside is we're around 100 bricks short and they only sell them in whole packs (shake)

Can you not recover a few from the little shed you knocked down?

Our neighbour is checking with his builder mates for spares and I found a backup plan. TP stock these bricks so will split packs. 100 bricks for £100 + VAT. It isn't a bad price in all honesty

Fwiw £100 to have a proper match seems a good bet to me. Well done. Are you going to cap the wall when you reach the top, or leave the elements to do their stuff.?

We're getting engineering grey bricks to head the top of the wall - standing them on end for aesthetics.

I'm leaning the same way as you, however, this neighbour's mate rebuilt a number of the walls around our area with these bricks so there's a high likelihood of them matching. We'll see what he can achieve.

Excellent work. That looks good, you've got your extra space and a sense of achievement for doing it yourself.

That looks great mate.

If you don't mind me asking, roughly how much did the whole build cost? Feel free to tell me to feck of if you'd rather not say/remember.

Thanks guys.. the satisfaction so far is unreal so I can't imagine how high it will be once it's fully finished inside the garden !!

We're going patio shopping tomorrow afternoon.

I've lost track of cost to be honest but I think we're around the £2k mark so far. Patio is going to cost a fair amount but I think we're looking at getting a free "offcut" of astroturf. The weatherboard cladding for the workshop is also going to cost a decent amount.

I estimate total cost will be sub £5k all in. It's a £20k+ build if we got someone in

IMO that's a great cost for the build. I bought a wooden (14x10) and kitted out out with insulation, electrics, etc.. that cost me will in excess of 2k, plus I got the base for pretty much free.

Cracking job.
