  7. The Obsey pt2, The re-build This is not one of those diy builds from scratch that most people do, this is just the re-build of the Obsey i picked up from Essex last week, Seeing as the weather was being nice this weekend i thought this would be a good time to re-build, Here it is all piled up ready to go, Obsey site was already prepared and my pier was already in situ and not really feasible to remove it so i was going to have to work with that, 1st job i was going to have to do was cut a hole in the floor section to go over the pier, So i placed the floor section on top of the pier plate with the assistance of my helper, while we held in place i got the wife to crawl underneath and draw round the pier plate, (had to make sure there were no spiders) hole cut and floor in place, Now it's just a case of screwing the walls in place, walls done, now the 1st roof section (the non-sliding bit) I did have words about the bare feet, Now to just fit the sliding sections, Rear section 1st Then the front sliding section, plus the polystyrene inserts, Here's a couple of small videos to show the roof sliding and the views i will have, Hope they work. IMG_1213.MOV IMG_1214.MOV It will still be x number of weeks before it is fully operational, before i start to put my equipment in there i need to sort out the security side of things, also need to find some clamps/fixings to secure the roof from inside, As it came with no door(it was joined to another shed and was accessed through that in it's old location) i also need to source one of those, plus a few other little tweaks and then it should be good to go. Regards
