Building a garden shed on a slope

Woodworking jobs mn

There's and advert on TV at the moment for sheds, I googled it and it returned some strange results. Were you repairing it after you went through the roof while standing on it to trim your hedge? It was tongue and groove must have been quite a good one 20 years ago but had rotted and was in the wrong part of garden for us.
Also I thought that a pent (sloping front to back) roof would be better so I can stand on it to trim a hedge nearby. Topper shed Stevie, now get the fcuker hooked to the lekkie and install a nice refrigerator . Tiger Sheds of Hull are good value ( none of your cheap OSB floors and roofs) and even deliver up here.
Initially I thought the Sunderland was awesome but the more I scrolled the more and more they dragged me in. A leading distribution specialist across road, rail, land and sea, AV Dawson stands as a dominant figure on the River Tees.
SHELTERED by a thick fluorescent coat, the gate man is quick to dismiss the gales whipping through the vast yard. The company, which marked its 75th anniversary last year, has weathered far more challenging industrial shifts throughout its successful history. The company stands on the banks of the River Tees, in Middlesbrough, offering haulage, shipping, warehouse and rail services. Operating from sites at Dawson's Wharf, Ayrton Railhead and it's Middlesbrough North Sea Supply Base, AV Dawson is the largest independent dry cargo wharf operator on the river.
It also has close links to the North-East's steelmaking heritage, a relationship that is bearing rich dividends.
Having signed a three-year deal with Tata Steel, which employs about 1,500 workers across its regional plants, AV Dawson now welcomes 10,000-tonne vessels to its extended riverside quay.
The firm carried out work to lengthen its quayside by 150 metres and is increasing water depths to eight metres to attract larger ships.
The huge vessels are delivering steel from Tata's Teesside beam mill, based in Redcar, to Europe, and Dawson is strengthening its ties with the firm further through ?6m plans to improve its steel storage facilities.


It will allow Dawson to store up to 30,000 tonnes of steel coil from Tata's south Wales operations for the automotive sector, which includes Nissan's record-breaking Sunderland plant.
The company is also looking to acquire another eight acres of land to create more space for its growing empire. Last year, it launched a ?10m investment programme, complete with ?2.5m Tees Riverside Intermodal Park rail terminal linking to the East Coast Main Line, to handle trains up to 80 containers and store up to 1,200 loaded containers. Sitting in his office, away from the gusts outside, managing director Gary Dawson, is delighted with the progress. The company was founded in 1938 when Arthur 'Vernie' Dawson paid ?50 for coal-carrying cart horse Dina, her shoes and a cart. It may now be a world away from those humble beginnings, but the firm remains true to the region's famous manufacturing base, including steelmaking.
Mr Dawson said its ?6m plans for a new automotive steel shed would add another dimension to the company. Those facilities include a number of companies based on its Riverside Park site, such as safety specialist MTE, which makes fire and blast walls for oil and gas platforms, and Modus Seabed Intervention, which provides services for trenching and cable laying in the offshore energy sector.
Mr Dawson said: “The changes to the quayside are boosting our presence in the subsea market. So where does a company that has set the standard for transporting goods for more than 75 years navigate itself in the future?
Arthur Vernon “Vernie” Dawson started the firm in 1938 with wife-to-be Eleanor when they were both just 18-years-old. He used the money to buy horse Dina, a cart for her to pull and a load of coal for her to sell, and still had change from the deal. Selling coal was a full-time operation in the winter, but during the summer Dina pulled light loads of haulage, furniture, timber and road materials. As the business began to flourish, Dina was retired and Vernie bought a lorry, taking coal direct from County Durham and Northumberland coalfields. In 1956, Maurice Dawson, Vernie and Eleanor's son, and current company chairman, joined his parents at the business.
The firm moved to Middlesbrough Wharf in 1973, later renamed as Dawson's Wharf, with the wharf dating back to 1820 when it was called Port Darlington and served the iron and steel industry.


By 1980, the haulage fleet was increased after the company acquired WG Thomas, increasing its vehicle count to 60. The firm's 50th anniversary in 1988 coincided with the official opening of the Ayrton Store and Rail Terminal. Vernie Dawson died in 1990, and in 1991 the company finished work on its first concrete quay. In 1998, it bought fabrication yard Linthorpe Dinsdale, now called the North Sea Supply Base. The company continued to develop and in 2004 it re-invented its commercial painting business, Tees Valley Coatings, for offshore and module painting.
Gary Dawson, grandson of Vernie and Eleanor, is now managing director, with the firm employing more than 170 workers and enjoying annual turnover of ?16m.

I have an 8x6ft base of slabs prepared and I was considering a 7x5ft shed so that there's plenty of room to fit guttering and a water butt on one side. I've only just noticed it and are having a great time sifting through all the great work you guys have come up with - I couldn't resist joining in, so here's a few of my oldies from over the years. Dawson's bought the site and used it to store up to 20,000 tonnes of potash, eventually working with ICI.
Former Government minister Michael Portillo opened it, driving into the site on the company's locomotive. If you have a complaint about the editorial content which relates to inaccuracy or intrusion, then please contact the editor here.
