Plumbed to a soakwell and you should be right.
My shed is 8x8M, 2.5M to the eaves and 11 degree pitch roof. This is what is looks like currently, hopefully getting finished off Monday weather providing, then I just need the last bit of plumbing and electrical hooked up.
Today was power day.
Sparky (who i went to highschool with) did an awesome job of the fit-out. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.
Found this product online to avoid the need to mount blocks of wood to the purlins for Mounting Blocks. Looks so much better in my opinion.
Also got started on digging my trench for the stormwater.
And finally. I've owned the Cruiser for over 3 years, and this is the first time it's ever slept under cover.
Are you putting in some windows?
He probably won't need them with the translucent panels in the roof. My garage has them and they let in heaps of light (and heat in summer which is not so good).
As Calaber said, im taking all of my lighting from the roof panels This is due to the location, 200mm off a fence on one and a 1m gap to the house on the other. I've had a white roof put on to reflect as much light as possible during the warmer months and i'll see how hot it gets if i need to look at removable block out panels for during summer.
OK I see.
I`m thinking of heat.
Hope it's not dropping oil on that new pristine floor
If you have used quality clear panels they won't transmit much (if any heat at all) in summer.

Fk thats big.
Sabbath whats the shadow like over the house? I was worried about building so close to ours
It's not too bad, obviously i've lost some of the direct sunlight that would enter the rooms (bedroom and rumpus) but since we left a 1m gap the rooms arent totally dark. Initially we thought we might have to put a skylight into the bedroom but i dont think that will be necessary.
That's what she said.
You could even put in 4 whirlybirds to draw some of the heat out.

Was looking at something like this. Best feature is that there doesnt need to be a breeze for it to be running. So on still, hot days would still be doing its job. And its price is similar to a plain Whirly.
It's pretty much been proven that whirlies and extractors don't do much in the way of lowering heat in the roof cavity. And the problem is air flow. There needs to be a inlet fan system of equal or slightly higher capacity.
In a shed I imagine a door would always be open so not as big a deal as a roof cavity.
Still, a big pedestal fan would be my preference. And then a gas blower heater in winter. Or go the whole hog and insulate the shed, then install aircon!
I'd have the ventilation fans at the back end of the shed, at the opposite end to the roller door. So airflow would be as such.
Concreter came around today and knocked up the formwork and laid down the mesh ready for tomorrow morning.
Nice one! But it doesn't look very thick!
