Yesterday my Nipper came over along with One of my Daughters Boy Friends, we found out why it was not taken through to the back as it should of been, Bloody Heavy, Nippers used to hard manual work so he knew what was coming, unfortunately the Boy friend is an Electrical Technician, and the largest thing he picks up is his pay packet, his legs buckled, it was a sight you had to see. But all round the back a coat of preservative put on the back and side as you cant get to them now, and I glued plastic pieces on the floor joists to keep it out of the water. all I need now is the magic fairies to appear to fit the roof felt.

Looks like you might need some gutters and a water butt for a roof that size.

Looks good.
Don't see many wooden sheds down below.
Tin is cheaper and white ants don't eat it.
White ants are a big problem in Awestralia,they will even find ways to eat treated timber.

That is a very impressive size shed Bj.
If you can afford the extra, a steel profile roof and ridge flashing will last 15 - 20 years, a lot longer than felt.  
On my new external man cave I have used steel tile effect in an anthracite colour which look just like Welch slate. I have then fitted insulation followed by a plastic sheet vapour barrier which I will clad inside with plasterboard.

originally we sold it to the wife as an external sewing room but when youngest son picked out the beer fridge, Lady S capitulated!!
Result!!!!

Cheers
Barry

Would like the steel roof but money for now has disappeared, the wife has stopped me spending, with the quote of it came with felt use it!! To be fair she did get up on the roof and bang in the nails LOL, last night was a family BBQ, with 6 kids and 9 grand kids and others we were very busy, opened the shed and let the kids use their imagination, kept them out of our way for a very long time RESULT!! today a lot of my "Junk" as the wife calls it got moved in, so the kids play house is no more, I have power to it already, so just a matter of some substantial benches made up and the racking I have bought assembled, should keep me busy for a few weeks at a couple of hours a day back allowing. Have 3 new machines to install, bench saw, band saw, and a wood turning lathe, also need a decent extraction system for the wood dust and turnings, hopefully one that is not to noisy. Then retrieve all my mechanical toys from nippers shed...................................................

Would be an idea, well I have put up 3 and a half racks, did have five full racks but the wife has pinched 1 and a half for much needed shelving in the loft space????? and her craft room??????

Now I have an idea of internal size I think Its going to benefit from a bench in the middle, like an Island, this will accommodate the band saw and bench saw, the bench saw not being fixed so it can be moved out to cut long lengths, decided to put the power points for the outside benches about a foot off the bench so you can find the damn things and the centre bench will have the power on the roof bearers.

Then there is the dust extraction to go in hmm work work work, done 3 hours today, fir for nothing now, arm hurts back is singing to me and legs have a mind of their own

Things could change

Have a look at Screwfix's own Titan brand power tools. I've got quite a few and they've not let me down over many years.

Have just treated myself to a New Titan band saw from there, impressed me yesterday when it sawed through a lump of 4X4 like butter, very easy to set up as well
