Very nice.. now just have to find some nice benches and shelves to store all the crap! Enough funds left to concrete the driveway? soon the shed will fill up with dirt as the cars move in and out..

Thanks guys :)

Tomorrow (1/6/2011) the concrete floor is getting ground smooth in preperation for acid etching & laying down the Epoxy floor coating.
Concrete ginding (includeing chamfer for the roller doors): $600.

Mike: Yes a hoist is going in, but I have a few other things to buy beforehand... ;) (Just to rub it in a 4t 2-post hoist is 2.5k here now ;D )
Benny: as long as it's faster than Salty's I don't care!
Simon: I'll have a special powerpoint deadicated to a Hair Straightner, for those problamatic 'Frizz' moments that I get while repairing Zed doglegs...
Chris: Μνεία MX5 & μου στην ίδια πρόταση ξανά και εγώ θα εισαχθεί κάποια Galaktobouriko όπου ο ήλιος δεν λάμπει!
Dimitri: I have benches etc, so i should be right. I might concrete an apron out the front to lesson the dirt issue, after the shed is made useable.
Gav: Cheers mate. No the ZX is Jane's new daily.
Bruce: See above & any time you like mate ;)
Chris: Δεν είναι το αφεντικό μου, εσείς χαζός!

Wasn't this a new slab? Why the grinding of the slab and chamfer?
My concreters cut the chamfer in while laying and did a wet trowel at the end to have the slab smooth.
Haven't put down epoxy though, so not sure what preparation is required in that respect.

Yes it was a new slab Brad. SikaFlooring recommended that the slab be ground smooth to open up the pours in the concrete to allow the Epoxy to soak into the surface better.
Also the concreters forgot to trowel in a chamfer in the doorways to allow water runoff (dumbarse's!).

And on with the Show!

After months of research I decided to go with 'SikaFlooring 264T' for the floor coating, because of the good pricing & technical asistance.
The Colour is 'Stone Grey'.
I've just got to Acid Etch the concrete a couple more times before I lay down the paint.

I also now have power to the shed!
I had to dig a 600mm deep trench for the power conduit from the house to the shed:

This is where the power comes out from the house - it goes through the roof & over to the power board:

This is where the power enters the shed. I've since covered the conduit with some quick-set conc.

Power board:

Lighting.

I haven't installed the 400W High Bay lights yet...

Sparkie cost: $3,212.

TOTAL to date:
$17,834 :o

That is a single phase board Lurch. ;D
Also a very small conduit, so no real chance of pulling in a larger 4C+E cable further down the track.

I made a bit of a mistake when I built my shed of only putting in 40mm conduits. Made it a hard job to get a 16mm2 4C+E cable + a 6mm2 SDI for the hot water in. Was possible, but not fun.

So you not staying at this place very long?

Thanks for the explanation on the concrete too.

Hahaha. I forgot to mention there are 4, 16mm cables in the conduit Brad.
The shed has the capabilty to be setup for 3-Phase in the future if I so wish. Just need the board changed & a new meter installed on the house :)

PM me your email Brad & I'll send you some info from SikaFlooring ;)
