Cowboy shed

Post by kr236rk » Wed Jul 07, 2021 12:25 pm

This is just a moan - the milk is well & truly spilled on this one.

Two years ago I found some handy men to help put up a DIY shed.

They turned up late, then they knocked off for a 3 hour lunch break because there were 'troubles at home'.

Then they returned with an hour of daylight left to bodge the job.

When I inspected the shed in the failing light, after they'd left, I realised they'd put the roof on upside down.

I just had time to gaffer-tape the centre in-fold cavity ~ now pointing to the sky ~ before last year's autumn rains set in.

For fanny's sake!

They mucked about til almost nightfall, then panicked to get the job done - result - one upside down roof.
