Two Oaks Farm. Home of JAG Contractors

Ok here goes.

I probably should of started with a simple shed as suppose to a complete workshop, benches, tools, diesel tanks and such like but why walk on the ground when you want your head in the clouds?

Here are some pics of the start of the workshop at Two Oaks Farm

Two Oaks is named because of the two old oak trees at the entrance to the drive ( well they will be there when I build the drive ).

It is home to JAG Contractors, hence the 13.5m x 16.5m (45ft x 55ft) workshop currently under construction on the farm. Operation are yet to be confirmed but will be along the lines of mixed operations as we are based in the midlands so things like Maize and Grass silage, arable work, hedge cutting (lots), fencing, general tasks.

I hope you enjoy the buildings and our journey through the construction of Two Oaks Farm.

Then I thought it would be time to lay the floor.

I have gonr for a concrete effect. I was in Homebase on saturday and found some spray paint that gives a stone effect.

Please let me know what you think guys, it would be appreciated.

Here is an over veiw, i'm just going back down stairs to see if it has dried.

I will post some more when I get a bit more built up.

Next up i am guessing will be either the wall or top bits from side to side ( I don't know, I'm not a construction engineer)

Any one advise me which is next will get a fiver, well possibly?

:D :D :D :D

Seen a lot of new buildings lately and lot's are galvanised. Be good to see a proper modern shed. I'll do one somewhen, few more older one's to build first though.

My set up would look smart next to your old style one.

When I get mine built up I will propose the idea for a show one day.

Build the frame first, minor parts like walls etc. will come later, allows machines to work almost around the building...like here. Walls arent structural in most cases

have a look through here

Excellent Ben!!

Thanks mate.

I have started on the roof joists but am wanting to make the roof removable so you can see the work going on inside. Not that it ill be too busy ofcourse, we will run a fleet of John Deere.  :-[:D :D :D :D

Seriously, that shed is amazing!!!

I've got some serious competition!!!

That's exactly my plan eventually mate, a timeline layout :)

Well my workshop combined with Bens shed would be a good start. Sit those next to Grahams grain drier or cattle shed and we are on our way.

Did you find it cheaper buying plastruct on line or in your local shop?
