One thing I did forget to mention - having just been playing in the shed and, in the light of this thread ('scuse the pun) glanced up at the CCU - when running cables to and from the CCU in a shed or garage where there is a risk of condensation, run the cable up to it and, if bringing cables in from above, leave enough to put a 'U' in the cable so that you are always bringing the cable up to the point of entry in to the CCU.Thanks. Very helpful and reassuring.
Yes, 2.5mm twin and earth for the sockets and 1.5mm for the lighting. Using a CCU with a double pole RCD and a single pole MCB (rated 16A) for all circuits at the mo. When funds permit, I'll change this for one with two mcbs. I see they're quite reasonably priced on Amazon.
Cost was a significant factor, so dismissed shiplap when doing the calculations. My mate built his workshop from feather edge twelve years ago and it's looking pretty good still. Used only one screw per batten for each plank to allow for shrinkage.Very nice inside but where is the train set?
Too late now for you, but did you consider using shiplap rather than overlap for the cladding?
More expensive but less prone to warping as it dries out.
Well spotted, Mick. My original plan was for an apex, but the ridge turned out to be so high that I changed to a pent roof. As a bonus, the geometry and hence the construction ended up a lot simpler.Did I notice a change in design - from an Apex roof to a Pent roof? A great retreat anyway!
