Lake Monger Community Shed Busy Bee

Image
First safety toolbox Wow, what a week.  The Lake Monger Community Shed got the keys and celebrated with a range of firsts. Our first safety toolbox Our first busy bee in the shed Our first cuppa and cake in our new home A great turnip with lots of helping hands enabled us to sort our storage containers out and start moving our gear into the shed. There is still some construction to do, with Cambridge Council organising some internal walls, dust and fume extraction installation and more, before we can start using the shed in earnest but the busy bee was a great first step. Thanks to everyone who helped out on the day and to Max and the committee for their years of effort to get us to this stage. Relocating our treasures Time for cake and a cuppa

Today I went into the shed to take some measurements for the dust extraction ducting.  The inside and outside of the Shed is now very impressive...  Here are a few pictures to give you an idea of how the Shed is coming on.

  Work has started on the new benches for the Cambridge Community Shed.  The metal frames are being constructed with the kind help from the Vincent Shed. the pictures show Bill Barnes cutting the legs and rails for the new benches.   Thanks to Bill, Rob Scantlebury and Rob Fredericks for their work so far.

Shed Progress & Walk Around

Image
  Today we were lucky enough to have access to our new shed for a quick look!  On site to answer our qustions were George Pudland, the Project Coordinator from the Town of Cambridge, along with his assistant Aron, a representative from the build contractor and the Chief Architect. The roof structure is complete and the insulation and roof sheeting will be in place by the end of the week. I was surprised how much larger the shed seemed close up.  The quality of the building is apparent and is sure to be an asset to the local community for a very long time.
