    Just been out and concreted a bit more. I'll bung some pictures up in a day or two. Got to go and buy more ballast now.

    Actally. Here's a photo from the other day.



    The roof has been lengthened by around five feet, leaving the old 'tin' rear wall inside. The new timber frame extension has a pitched part just under the roof end for a clear fibreglass light, which will sit above the workbench, which I'll need to move from its current spot behind the tin wall.

    Yeah. Got more corrugated sheet. The garage has been there about 35 years and nobody has said anything. If anybody asks, I'll tell them it was there before I moved in. Going to give the whole thing a coat of paint before winter arrives.

    Lengthening it is enough for me this year. Next spring, I plan to widen it too.

    I have only just found this thread. I love gardening, we only have a smallish garden but we having it looking pretty tidy. I'm just about to start building a 2 tier pond in an unused hidden corner, it'll be hard digging but it will be incredibly rewarding.

    nice one. ponds are good, and always have a shallow exit for frogs etc or they will drown. used to have a huge formal one years ago with lights, fountains and fish, but filled it in and built a smaller oval two tier rustic one. still got 3 fish in it as the buggers live for ever. if there is a chance of kids being present then fence it off in case.. they are attracted like magnets to them

    We are actually building it to try to attract frogs, we do see them in the garden but I don't think there is suitable home for them, the plan is to put a few plants in that attract things that frogs eat so they have a good food source on hand, somebody recommended water cabbage. I shall make sure it is as frog friendly as possible, I'm planning to put a few places in for them to hide under too. Well, that's the plan anyway

    I'll put some before and after pics up, although the after may take a while.
