It's here! It's here! It's here!

Yesterday morning, the shed arrived :)

The bloke who delivered it had quite a bit to say on the subject, having apparently just put together exactly the same shed after buying it at B&Q.

In particular:

1. Apparently you should follow the instructions and fit the extra two bracers under the floor, because he didn't, and now his is sagging in the middle.

2. It took him six hours to put together.

3. You should make sure that the base is really very very level, or it ends up with the roof being a right b****er to fit.

4. It's difficult to do if you can't get at it from all four sides - e.g., if you're putting it in a corner of your garden, as he was.

5. Buying stuff at B&Q during your lunch hour can take a lot longer than you might expect (a long and detailed exposition followed at this point).

6. Women don't get it. 'nuff said :)
