Well finally got it in the shed....definately not a lightweight 

Dashes are odd.. hand throttle... twin fuel tanks.  Funny they didnt just fit standard UK army fittings.  Its got tool mounts on the wings with an additional axe mount.

i cannot see how a heater was fitted

As the original 109 GS 2A had been butchered by different modifications.  i am opting to build an 88 GS 2A.  First picture is the current state of my project.... the second picture is what i want apart from i think i will go Glooss UK mod green

And finally i just bought this 9x6 shed, which has to be disassembled this weekend and moved to my place.  This will slow me down but have to get council approvals and pour a heap of concrete (so need more overtime).  Anyway stay safe

You'll soon fill the tin-sheet shed , but in daytime with doors closed will the tyres melt  ?  Doors open - probably too hot to spanner  ?

I thought that looks very big for 9 feet by 6 feet, but of course you Aussies have very sensibly gone fully metric. I hope we catch up with you soon.

Steve.

i cant wait to get it up...... i might paint the trusses RAEME colours

Well shed is down and at my place.

I had hoped to get original drawings but too much red tape so I now have to redraw the structure and submit to the local council.

dreading the price of concrete

Low slope pitch  but you don't get snow ?

Roof truss seems very slight for such a clear span , purlins seem ample.  Are the stanchions actually cast into the concrete floor slab or bolted down. Did they wobble with the sheeting removed. ? 

Must be a Oz. common build ?

Apply to the Council of the Shire the shed came from as they should have plans on file from when it was built.

The other way is just build it and don't tell them!.

What's snow?

Yep I thought the roof trusses look light but its not a home build its a shed suppliers method.  The uprights are 25x25mm and the trusses slot in at the top.

With all the purlins it was pretty rigid, the flimsiest part was the door structure.

Tried to get the old drawings but need the previous owners permission, which is becoming a drag.  The drawings regardless have to be approved by a structural engineer (more cash)

They monitor your house with drones and google earth and send you a letter every time you have an impure thought

Is  "sheddist" the term for persons with a healthy interest in such matters  ?

I have seen very similar , in fact almost identical construction of car-ports using  in the main 25 x 25 hollow box section (and have in mind a project).  I had expected a strong wind to just carry it off but with open sides it just escaped !

                    I jumped from  7' x 14'  sectional timber garage where the single truss is hardly  any stuff. to  15' x 24'  (40 yard square) ,  the timber £ for trusses goes through the roof  !

I think in UK   40 yard square must still be max. area for a "temporary" provided within curtilage , not in front of 'building-line' facing a main highway and abt. 15 feet min. from the dwelling.    Beyond the 40 yards squared  - then you are into all the permissions.

I still have a vague memory of trusses & working out what was a strut or tie,  use of beams/RSJ's on a simple span - moment of inertia & you got into trouble with lack of own stability beyond 28 feet.

Snow in Freemantle - that would be interesting , the last time I was there was 1970.  I remember late evening - lost on the outskirts , under a covered walkway , then a dust-cloud came down the street - it was just like a Wild West movie.  The only other thing I recall was admiring the architecture of Freemantle & Perth railway stations..

yep i seen Snow once in Australia when i was around 7 years old in Bathurst, NSW.  Typically here Santa brings cold beer and salad.

Yep much of the old architecture we can credit to the UK working class ie the convicts 😁

My sister married an Aussie whose brother was a ski instructor in the Snowy Mountains. It does exist in Australia.
