After a little back and forth with the council about where the house and shed could be positioned on our block, I finally got approval to build a 6 x 12 metre shed for the man cave. Unfortunately, I was overseas with the army when the shed and house were being built, and couldn’t oversee the whole thing. Resultantly, the perimeter of the house got concreted without the shed being attached to mains power, water, or sewerage, forcing me to reconsider how badly I wanted a toilet and running water in the cave.
One of the first priorities was insulation for the shed. I started work on the man cave build in the middle of summer, and midday temperatures inside the shed were topping 60 degrees Celsius, which was ridiculous. The second order of business was to build an olympic lifting platform, so that I could start lifting up heavy things and putting them back down again. The photos attached show the very start of the project, when the slate was still blank.
