Lift That Load

When the offer of a truckload of dressed Radiata Pine was offered we gladly agreed to collect what ended up to be 2 loads of the timber.
But how to offload it when it arrived at the Shed? No worries, we got Alex to leave his guide dog Cherry in the cool of the Shed, and then put him to work carrying the timber. He was a somewhat reluctant worker though and refused to carry anymore than 5 boards at a time. Trouble was he had no idea as to where to put the timber once inside the Shed.

Alex is a great member of the Shed and his contributions to our activities are often an example to us all.

A Second Mobile Shed is Coming

The original Mobile Shed has been a great hit at community gatherings across the Coast and in the Lower Hunter. Many more people are aware of "Sheds" and how they operate in the community after speaking with the men who tow it to the various public displays.
Because of its popularity another group of Shedders have suggested they build a companion for the old faithful original.

And who better to measure up for the internal fit out of version 2 but Mr Mike, the letterbox, Gavaghan seen here with the Shed lifting its skirts for him to poke around underneath. Mike is now planning to prepare a set of working drawings on CAD so it may be that many more Mobile Sheds will appear across the country when the drawings are finalised.
