Bit of an update for this, I managed to get the pile of cobbles sorted after a week of hard graft and the hire of a mini digger. I know I haven't painted that door yet :oops:

The plan next spring is to redo the roof on the other shed and add a carport over the cobbles hence the block in the cobbles.
I'll sort out some picture of inside when I've had a bit of a tidy up :facepalm:

The inside of the shed was getting a bit messy and it got even worse when the Missus took back her writing bureau and getting the bikes in the loft was a bit of a struggle having to hoist them up on a pulley system, so before I start the roof I have decided to put in a stair case. My land lady had a old staircase in the barn at my old place so I've reused the treads from that and made up a new set of stringers. The first set up left a small tread so I had to recalculate my spacings second time lucky.

Holy cow! :shock:

That's a lot of work on someone else's property! I hope you have a nice long lease now.
Impressive stuff though. Love the cobbles (or is it pave). You'll be able to practice for Paris-Roubaix! :lol:
