How to build a really SOLID shed

Birt 8 sep 2016
How to build an awesome shed AND for less than you can buy them for, also this is way more solid, it's insulated, is the exact dimensions you want and you can put the doors and windows (if any) where you like.
My main shed where all the other stuff is filmed was built in the same way and has been up for 7 years with no problems at all, now i went a bit fancie on the slate roof but you only live once haha.
There are no drawings for this as you make it to the sizes you wish.
Now i'm not a shed building channel so you should check out my other videos they are all good.

  • This guy is funny 👍, good video to

  • Costs more but way more better

  • Anyone had the lead yet?

  • Why is this in my recommended 😂😂😂😂

  • Woodglut has a lot of plans to choose from.

  • Colin mate, could I possibly pay you to make that shed in my garden?

  • The black show developmentally doubt because stepson intialy wreck by a certain potato. uppity, harmonious baby

  • What kind of price for your shed and what size I know plywood ain’t cheap also timbers and insulation board

  • Solar panels on the roof? Help with power.......

  • Wait this isn't ed sheeran I came here for ed not a shed

  • As a roofer the lead work and slating made me cringe a bit but overall looks good, but if your going to do your house get a proper roofer in 😂

  • I copied this video to make my shed but Iv gone wrong . I thought you had used 4x2 but it’s 3x2 isn’t it ? so my feather edge doesn’t sit flush with the 100mm posts 🙈 now looking for 5inch posts but know where local seems to have them

  • I would have thought that quality was more important than beating an arbitary sum. Quality wood for a start.

  • Polythene? Lovely build... But you just made a sweat box! 🤔

  • Do you have a video how you built the floor?

  • Colin looks like if boris johnson wasnt royal

  • Oh i live in a shed mine dosnt look as tood tho

  • Prat

  • Next one a Furze 3D printed shed?

  • Ryan’s Shed Plans provides me correct plans for garages and outbuildings too. You can learn to build many things like large Garage, Elevated Sawdust Bin, Lawn Tool Storage Cabinet, Garden Windmill, etc {Check Details Here=> }. Despite being a newbie it’s such a package that enables me becoming to work just like an expert woodworker and complete projects in far less time than I used to.

  • Brilliant. Right tools help but you are v skilled, sir.

  • acessem meu canal e me ajudem a divulgar meu trabalho, lá tem vários projetos incríveis!!! projetos de Casas térreas modernas, Sobrados, Chácaras, Lojas, Áreas de Lazer e muito mais!!!!

  • Great build but should of put a layer of dpc on top of bricks so water can’t rise up into the shed walls

  • Same shirt, different day .. .. ..

  • 3:17 😀

  • What’s the size of the timber used for the frame ?

  • I think slate will prove to be a mistake in the end. I have a slate roof on my house and it's horrible. It leaks, it drops black dust everywhere, it chips and cracks. It's pretty horrible. Might have been the best stuff around 200 years ago but there are much better alternatives now. Does look pretty damn smicko though.

  • Dig the tie brother! Awesomeness!

  • Do you have any concerns for damp gathering between the plastic liner and the ply underneath? Is this an issue at all ? Anyone know?

  • 7:43 isn’t lead dangerous? wasn’t it banned?

  • Thats youtube for recommending this to me after 4 years

  • @Colinfurze im looking to build something similar to what you have done. I was just wondering what wiidth you made your door

  • I’d like to copy this, any chance of uploading plans/dimensions Furze?

  • Class love your videos, u crazy man.

  • 1000th time watching this video? Check

  • Has he only got one shirt and tie.......he wore it every day for 6 months!! How old school is that wearing a tie to do manual work.

  • @Colinfurze How much did this build cost you ?

  • If I win Lotto, will hire this dude full time..

  • thought you were joking about the bunker, until i got to 3:30 seconds

  • Why not put the ply on the inside and use a breathable membrane instead of plastic sheeting?

  • Colin is the kind of noisy neighbours

  • The honorable catsup additionaly travel because birthday technically clap versus a wistful meeting. overjoyed, painful case

  • soon this guy will build a nuclear power station including the reactor and its fuel

  • That's not a shed, it's a chalet.

  • I bought plans from Woodglut and did it very quickly.

  • Definitely more of a metal guy than a carpenter.

  • Who the hell builds with a shirt n tie .........!

  • The wood against the stones will rot in no time, you need to protect it

  • Alternatively don't bother with a shed and just throw your stuff over the back of a chair in the dining room

  • get a shed like that for 1600, yeah ok mate, double that for that spec!! work of art

  • Building my own 6x3m shed/workshop soon, using this as great inspiration. Nice one Colin👍🏻

  • I did it too. This is what I used Stodoys plans designs for

  • Best shwd i've seen built to date. Slate roof is a killer. Anyone seen nicer shed plese show me. Good work lad! Cheers from Poland

  • How hi was the stud walls thx grate channel

  • Wait its.. a shed? No explosions? I feel cheated

  • And you have electrics so add that to the cost plus does it need gutters and drain pipes to help it last longer? Just a thought.

  • You congrats mr bean in the future 😀😀😀😀

  • What size timber do you use for the door trim (architrave) and frame? I like the centre post in the middle of the walls incidentally meaning you can use the much more available 1.8m lengths of featheredge rather than having to source longer stuff.

  • DPM under the bottom track? Studs as a roof joists?

  • man after haveing to fix other peoples mess it was good to see you bulled this thing right to make it last as long as possible.

  • For some reason I thought he built the solid shed before the bunker

  • what dimensions does the shed have

  • Same shirt and tie all the way through....👀

  • Very informative video, I will like to use this as guide to build my shed altough there are alot of things you need to consider not showing which are important such as not mentioning the importance of leaving a gap when building the door, ect'.

  • That look stronk

  • Colin is te reason i have no money but many other cool stuff

  • Why not build it out of metal? I feel a strong hurricane will probably send this shed flying...

    • The UK doesn’t really get hurricanes.......

  • I will try to do it with Woodglut plans.

  • What is that last thing that looks like a chimney which he rolls over the middle of the roof?? Thanks a lot :)
