Check you have a DPC in place. Mine didn't. A messy job if there ever was one...

Yes, damp proof course. I had to put one in my concrete block building. Not the most fun I ever had on a cold afternoon.

What an exciting project Andy. Mmmmm ride-on mower, always wanted one of them, in fact I nearly bought a property with a large grassed back garden just so I could justify one but the missus had other plans ha ha!

Will follow your progress so keep the piccys coming.

When I had my 1 acre garden in Essex years ago I had large garden tractor set up. Sit on mower and trailer etc; It did make grass cutting more fun. But after a while it just became a task like everything else. My little bungalow we have now, has no grass at all.
I do miss the space a little but no way could I handle it these days.

New ride on mower is being delivered end of October. With the weather so mild lately (in relative terms), the lawns are still growing and the previous owner didn't cut the grass before they moved out Nor did they take their rubbish but that's another story !

Slight rethink on the storage of the ride-on mower. I have a spare 8ft x 6ft shed which I can modify one end to take the mower with no problem. This then keeps any damp from the ride on away from the workshop/railway room and as one chap said on an email to me, damp mowers can cause all sorts of problems so thanks for the heads up on that one.

Made a start this morning on the front end of the workshop. I have decided not to make a second door as it really isn't required. One door of 5ft width is plenty. Carry on tomorrow if the weather remains nice.
