I deduce the two sheds down the back will stay.
Now I'm suffering deep shed-envy.

When I sold the business (did I mention I retired on Monday 9th?  :grin) I lost my shed.
This Friday I take delivery of a garden shed, and when that's in place, I will get to work on a replacement workshop/shed.
For the modern man who lives in the city, riding a bike might be one of the only ways to escape the humdrum monotony. To take off and ride. To be both at one with nature and one with the bike. To feel masculine. Adam Piggott

Congrats on retirement Biggles - Yes we will pull the skillion down and keep the old shed as a rustic BBQ area  :beer

Great shed. Should be named Man Cavernous.

Congratulations on the retirement Biggles.

Got room here in St Helena, but may depend on size of van, and driverís reversing skills.

There's plenty of space length wise, width is approximately 2.6m.  I better go and check.

This what you got to work with:



Use to get our old van down there easily, but that was an older, narrower type, and my skills were shyte.

What I'll do is park the Ford Ranger in there, take a pic and also get a proper measurement.

Just measured paling fence to brick wall - 2650mm.

Mmmmm, 140mm clearance, if you're good enough you can get it "in", but then you won't be able to get "into" the van (if that's necessary).

It's good that a man knows his limits.  Yeah, put the question out there again, if a better option arises - all good.

In the meantime (and there is plenty of it to Nov), a good mate has some rural acres just north of Whittlesea township, I'll ask him.  To provide some context: https://goo.gl/maps/XgDW2VALfQ42.  I'm in St Helena, at the blue dot about halfway.
