the camper trailer is currently housed in a similar sized shed to the carport I am going to build, so once it's sold I'll have that shed vacant to work in. I'd house the caravan inside that shed , but can't get it under the carport that runs down the side of our house there already, and can't raise that higher due to windows above it...also would need to make current shed roller door wider and higher, so easier to build a new carport. Luckily we live on a corner block, so i will just cut a gate in the fence and back the van in off the side street to where the new carport is going along the back fenceline.

grabbed a step for our new van (pretty solid little unit)

Getting home from doing exactly the same thing! :D

They look pretty good & feel solid as well, so should be great.

Hey, Mal (or anyone interested) I have two beams leftover from my sheds. I have been instructed to clean the property up a bit by an higher authority.

They're both 3600x150x65's. Can easily throw on 'tilly racks and drop off to you.

LOL, not much I can do about it. They have the jobs, most jobs filled without advertising so you need to keep on the agents good side.

I would be more upset if it was about a particular job, or if I was out of work. This is really just scoping to find out what is about at the moment, in no rush to move.

And I get another morning coffee later in the week :)

That's a great idea, next time I will wear something other than the stubbies, singlet and thongs. Maybe that's what I have done wrong all these years :D
