I can remember building sheds with my dad. One in particular was a wendy house built for Jackie Gault that sat in front of the house and was painted in some lovely but very bright colors. He also built numerous sheds, pigeon sheds etc, the materials all seemed to arrive from off casts on jobs he was doing with Jimmy Caves building contractors or wherever he was working.
I think the most important thing I learned from this is if you want to get shit done just start building it, he never had a plan that I was aware of, I’m not even sure he had a plan he just got on with building the shed. I’ve always wanted to build a shed so when the opportunity arose in the form of building a Wendy House for the girls I jumped at it.
