The sourcing of materials is always key in any building project, but can become even more critical when the project has such a modest budget (like ours).
Shaun rang me today saying he’d sourced some very reasonably price Dricon 18mm thick plywood for the outer skin of the shed. I wouldn’t normally go for this type of shed outer and opt for a feather board or ship lap but both these options are a tad expensive. Anyway with the option of the plywood it reminded me of a shed blog I read last year about someone using plywood and making it look pretty awesome.
Here’s the blog http://design-milk.com/deconstruction-david-van-alphens-modern-shed/
He routed slots in the plywood and painted them a different colour which I think looks pretty sweet. And considering the plywood is not only waterproof it’s also fire retardant so it’s pretty good stuff.
The routing is not a problem as we have all the kit so it looks like a routed plywood finish is what were going for.
Now just need to sort the concrete and the big timber erection (no sniggering ;) can begin.
